Welcome to Florida Bengals, home of the “little lap leopards”! We are located in Jacksonville, Florida on the beautiful St. Johns River.
We work hard to promote the Bengal breed by breeding for the best qualities in the cats through their looks and their personalities. We specialize in large rosettes and lots of glitter. Our beautiful felines look wild and exotic with highly contrasting spots on lighter colored backgrounds. Their fur feels like a silky pelt, unlike usual cats.
Because we don’t have a lot of cats, we can give all our cats lots of personal attention. We strongly believe that this helps to promote the loving and affectionate temperament that is so desirable in this special breed.
Besides the benefit of looking like a wild cat, Bengals are very smart, very affectionate, curious and energetic. They behave more like a dog than a cat in many ways. Bengals will follow, many of them like to play in the water, they love to play “fetch” and yes they are leash trainable. Bengals love the outdoors.
Bengals are the only cats we raise. We show our cats in The International Cat Association (TICA). Florida Bengals is a member of the TICA Voluntary Responsible Breeder Program and has been evaluated as a TICA Outstanding Cattery. We are also members of The International Bengal Cat Society (TIBCS). We are also proud to be Certified by the Bengal Cat Club. It is our belief that membership and active participation in these associations helps us stay informed on the breed standards, and allows us the fellowship with other breeders and cat enthusiasts that share our same affection for the Bengal.
Thank you for visiting Florida Bengals!
