The Lily is perhaps the most symbolic flower of all time. We are inspired by the image of a water lily rising from the murky depths, out of mud and blooming at water’s surface beautifully undefiled. The Lily symbolizes our ability to rise above and reach our full potential despite a sometimes dark and difficult path. With a play on words from TigerLily, BengalLily represents everything we like to see in a Bengal; wild looks, yet tame and with unprecedented beauty.
BengalLily is small home cattery in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina.
My deep connection and love for cats started at a very early age. In nearly every picture of me as child I am carrying a cat or kitten. I am drawn to their supernatural intuition, incredibly affectionate nature, and goofy antics. My passion for felines continues today by bringing you the absolute best of the Bengal breed!
Building a breeding program could be compared to building a house. Breeding from unhealthy cats with poor temperaments or that lack breed type is like building a house from a pack of cards. Eventually it will come tumbling down and all the hard work will have been for nothing. More effort and expense goes into raising a litter of top quality kittens than does raising a litter of mediocre kittens. We don’t mind that hard work because it means bringing you the very best! BengalLily was started from the ground up, building this “house” with the highest quality Bengals in regards to pedigree, temperament, type and health. Lastly, we work on painting this “house” with gorgeous patterns and colors.
Our cattery is TICA registered and follows the breeder’s Code of Ethics. We genetically test all our breeding Bengals for PK-Def (Pyruvate kinase deficiency) and PRA- B (Progressive Retinal Atrophy.) Screening for HCM (Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy) is performed annually by a board certified veterinary cardiologist.
We raise our kittens in our residence with lots of love and attention. Kittens produced in our cattery come with a Health Guarantee.
