What are the harnesses and collars

Collars are purchased for various purposes – medical and prophylactic and for walking, decorative for aesthetic purposes, and informational – so that the lost animal is back at home. Now for walking, special harnesses are issued.

Walking harnesses are special-purpose leashes that are preferable to a collar because of their safety for the animal. The cat’s neck will not slip out of such a leash, and the danger of catching on something is leveled. A variety of designs distribute the load and do not press on the throat of the pet. Walking harnesses are:

– V-shaped, when the connecting strap of the loops falls on the chest of the cat;

– H-shaped, in which the strap falls on the back;

– in the form of two loops connected by a figure eight; Continue reading

Knit or sterilize?

Not all purebred Bengal cats and cats are suitable for further breeding. And we are not even talking about obvious defects in the exterior or problematic nature. In order not to spoil the breed, breeders allow only animals that perfectly meet the standard and have a promising appearance to breed. Uncontrolled reproduction over several generations can disrupt the intent of the creators of the species, degrade the type. For this reason, most often one of the conditions for the purchase of Bengal babies is their mandatory sterilization on time, so not all can breed Bengal cats. Sterilization is useful for the animal, not suitable for pedigree work, and for the owner, and in general for the breed. Unsterilized animals should mate regularly. Otherwise, troubles and aggressive behavior caused by instincts cannot be corrected – it is necessary to eliminate the cause itself.

It is irresponsible that the cat should be allowed to give birth to a little “for health”, and that the cat, after castration, turns into an amorphous creature. The behavior of the animal after sterilization and castration changes in a positive direction. Continue reading

All about feeding Bengal cats: right and balanced

If, in general, caring for Bengal cats is not difficult, does not cause much trouble, then feeding is not easy. The point here is in the sensitive, gentle gastrointestinal tract – such is the genetics of the breed. Bengal cats from wild ancestors inherited a shortened intestine, along with it – a digestive system that is sensitive to changes. It is so easy to disorder that a concept such as “Bengal diarrhea” has appeared. There is no talk of cheap feed from supermarkets at all. Having purchased not one ode a thousand elite animals, it is unreasonable to save on its nutrition (and, therefore, on health). The digestion of bengals does not tolerate not only poor-quality food, but also a change in diet or type of feed. Therefore, the basic feeding strategy must be developed in advance. Continue reading
