"Our home is our cattery, our cattery is our home"
We are a small cattery located in Western New York with a long standing commitment to our kittens and their new owners. We started out as Bengal cat owners, but fell in love with the breed, so much so that we wanted to see how we could contribute, and hopefully improve the Bengal cat breed.
Our Bengal cats and kittens are showered with love and attention from day one. We have Bengal's running around the house and playing all the time, when they are not sleeping on our laps or in bed with us, purring away.
We also socialize our Bengal kittens at an early age. Our kittens are handled with lots of gentleness, love and care from the day they are born. Maplewood kittens are born in the "kitten nursery" and when they are old enough, they go to the "kitten room" where they are introduced to the rest of the house, to play with the older cats.
The Maplewood Bengal experience does not end with your purchase of a Bengal kitten. We provide ongoing support to all our clients, and welcome phone calls, emails and communications. We try and develop personal relationships with all of you and welcome your letters and email updates about your Maplewood kitten.
Our kittens usually stay with their littermates until they are at least 12 weeks old, to avoid behavioral problems associated with kittens being separated from their litters too soon. We want to ensure that by the time you pick up your kitten, the kitten is fully weaned from its mother, eating solid food, and using the litter box. We also want to ensure that our kittens are socialized at that point, to interact with their new family, including children and pets.
We want our Bengal kittens to go to good, loving homes where they will receive lots of love, attention and excellent care. We will be happy to help you choose the Bengal cat that is "just right" for you.
