We have Pet, Breeder and Show quality most the year around. You can call
or contact us by email. If you have special wishes in a kitten you would like
to get out of a litter coming soon you can ask us anytime. When you chose one
of our kittens before they are ready to leave Brockenmoor, you must place a
deposit to this kitten to reserve it.It is also possible to take a deposit on
a unborn kitten but we take not many of this kind of deposits to have our
kittens available when they are ready to place into our webpage. Deposits at
Brockenmoor are non refundable. Deposits depent on a kitten, to make sure for
you that it is yours. If something should happens to your Kitten
here at ours, (like an accident etc.) after you paid deposit you will get another
kitten with the same quality. Kittens grow here at Brockenmoor until they are
about 4 month of age and ready for shipping. In this time kittens go through
several development periodes (fuzzies etc.) and change their appearance
a little, especially because they are growing animals. When paying the deposit,
you know that it is not refundable.

Our kittens get their first adult vaccination, including rabies vaccination)
with 3 month of age. This time can change a bit because it is a very hard stuff
for the kittens and we like to be sure that they are strong enough for this
vaccination. Kittens grows fast differently, through this can the time of move
or of leave Brockenmoor variousor. To ship kittens international, we have to
accept the International Shipping Rules which say, that we can ship 30 days
after the rabies vaccination. You can get your kitten start at 14 weeks of
age within Germany and 30 days after the rabies vaccination international.
Shipping within the European Union is easier and without waiting time now.
At this time your kitten is independent and eating well on their own and is
playful and active very well socialized and litterbox trained. We breed for
very high quality of Bengals and for a great lovely and sweet character.

Your Kittens leave with a 4 generation Brockenmoor pedigree and the TICA
registration papers (blue slip at kittens, transfer Ownership
(registration card) at cats. We are members at TICA (The International Cat
Association) and TIBCS (The International Bengal Cat Society). Kittens who
leave have all important vaccinations and this are shown in the pet passport.
All our kittens who leave Brockenmoor have a actualy health certificate.
They all are special vet checked for all possible and visible genetic
characteristics after their quality. Brockenmoor kittens and cats are priced
according to their POTENTIAL at the time of sale and our experience going
back to past litters same breeding, not according to their final development.
Breeders are unable to do this because they would have to keep each kitten
until it is grown. The new owners are therefore given time to have their
new Brockenmoor kitten or cat evaluated and vet checked by their own trustful
veterinarian. Brockenmoor suggest to ckeck your new kitten or cat within the
first 72 hours at your trustful vet. The responsibility for the Brockenmoor
kitten or cat will go over from breeder to the new owner with all rights and
duties. It is impossible for us, as breeders, to control maintenance,
medication, handling, food, etc. once the kitten leave us.
Our kittens and cats leave with a contract after their quality.

We start to make pictures of the kittens between 3 - 5 weeks of age.
It is very hard to make the "perfect" pictures and take lots of time,
the right position of the kitten and the perfect light for photos.
We understand that you like to see your kitten grow, but after the first
pictures the kittens don't change a lot, then they come into the fuzzy time
and are very active and playful. Please understand that we cannot make
constantly update pictures of your kitten. We make another pictures when your
kitten is ready to leave us and before we ship or you pick up it.
When you are living in Germany or close to us, you can visit us and our cats
when the kittens are 3 month of age personally. When you visit us you have to
absorb costs for your trip by your own, even if you are not taking the kitten
with you. We are pleased to give information about our Bengals and your kitten by
email or phone anytime. Whenever you later need help or a tip, we are here!

The Brockenmoor Bengal cattery has the official ministerial
permission to raise Bengals in Germany!

We ship our kittens worldwide via Lufthansa airlines, leaving from Frankfurt/Main
International Airport to nearly each country in the world. This airline sounds to
us as the safest way in shipping live animals, we are very satisfied in the comfort
they have. We try always to coordinate shipping the kittens on a direct flight to
you as far as possible. Approved carrier is included in shipping.

All our queens and studs have regular veterinarian checks at a famous
animal hospital at the chef veterinarian and they are tested against the
most dangerous diseases and are negative. Our breeding stock keeps current
on vaccinations against RCP and rabies and is tested and free from Feline
Leukemia. Our cats get regular wormings. Our kittens get regular worming
start at an age of 2 weeks with "Panacur" then all 14 days until they are
3 month of age. At this time we add to Panacur also Praziquantel for 2 times.
Start at 4 month they should be dewormed 4 times per year. Our kittens get
their first adult vaccination RCP and rabies with 3 month of age, the second
RCP vaccination should be given no later then 6 weeks after the first one.
there are many vaccinations available, the new owners should decide together
with his trustful veterinarian which kind of another vaccinations they will
give to their kitten. The new owners should decide this careful as not all
offered vaccinations make sense to give to each kitten or cat. All given
vaccinations to Brockenmoor kittens are shown in the kittens own pet passport
and also in the top of the contract, same as the last deworming and dates for
the next future important vaccinations.

We feed our cats an optimal diet to give them the optimum they need to be strong,
healthy and everytime something special for us. With intensive selection we get
our cats better and better each year. Brockenmoor breeds only for brown rosetted
cats and kittens. We breed for a good type, short and clear fur, large and
three-colored rosettes, a strong profile and a nice face, a warm color and small
ears. Our cats do not carry for snow and silver - also not for marble.
We never had a marble kitten at Brockenmoor, but resistente genes can be shown also
after many many generations if they are bred to a cat who carry for, so each new
owner should check the pedigree for details.


Kitten quality information

We like to give you with this lines a bit more information about that,
what we mean with our pet-, breeder - and show quality.We hope this will
help you to select your darling and to decide which kind of quality you prefer.

--- show quality ---

If Kittens will have all this characteristic, to be great breeders and can
go to cat shows with a big possibility to win there, then they are our best
kittens and are in show quality. This means not, that a kitten which is for
us "show quality" will win in each cat show ..... guaranties for show wins
are not possible because there are many judges worldwide and each judge has
his own idea how a Bengal have to look. Each breeder has his own breed goals
and our best kittens, this who are in our eyes top kittens, this kittens are
then our show quality. We would show this kittens when they would stay here
at us at Brockenmoor. Our Brockenmoor Show kittens are vet checked for their
visible genetic a show and breeder cat have to have. "Show kittens" get our
highest price.


--- breeder quality ---

Not all kittens in a litter are show quality kittens.
If a kitten to us looks to have not all characteristic for a show quality cat,
but very important characteristic for a famous breeder, then we give it as
breeder quality. Our selection between Show and Breeder quality is very careful.
This breeder quality cats can have later sure very famous show quality kittens!
Our "breeder quality" kitten are often shown on cat shows with lots of success,
this is possible, you must ask us before. Breeder kittens are lower priced
then show kittens.


--- pet quality ---

Then we have kittens, which are not in show and breeder quality,
kittens which looking great but have some characteristic we do not like to breed
with and we do not like either that somebody else would breed with this kitten.
Or we simply look for a nice and lovely pet home for this kittens because of his
lovely character. This kittens are then pet quality kittens. This kitten have our
lowest price. In the TICA registration papers of this kitten is shown that it is
not allowed to breed with or show this kitten. You get with this kitten a special
contract and you must sign that you later neuter or to spay your darling until it
is 1 year of age. We try to find nice and lovely pet homes for our "pet quality
kittens" where they can live together with their new family members and people.
If you are interested in a pet kitten, you may ask us anytime. Bengal kittens
special like children and other animals very much. All our pet kittens are very
lovely and cuddly to people and build very fast a big bond to their new owners.
Pet quality Kittens have not all characteristic then our show and breeder kittens,
they can have also small faults which make no problems for his further live.
Most time our pet kittens have no faults but looks not exactly similar to our show
or breeder cats. When they are not exactly so beautiful then this cats, we look
for a nice pet home for them.


--- special pet quality ---

Then we have special Pet quality kittens. This kittens have nearly all or ALL
characteristic like a show or breeder kitten,and the new owners don't like to breed
with this kitten. Some people like to have a "top quality Bengal" at home for themself,
beautiful that visitors at their home may say "wow" when they see him or her. Most of
this special pet quality kittens get the licence for shows, if the new owner will like this.
Special pet kittens have the same characteristics like a breeder and show quality kitten
(only the genetic is in this case not important) they may have small faults or small
characteristics that we give them not as breeder and show quality for breeding. Most of
our special pet have no faults, we like to give especially male kittens as special pet
because then they can live with people together all their live and not as stud cat who
has to be separated because of spraying. This is normal at stud cats. A special pet
kitten is a bit cheeper then his realy quality, but not to much. As basic for his price
we take always his realy quality and give them then a discount. A special pet kitten has
a different price and a different quality then a normal pet kitten.
