As established by veterinary medicine, the stage of the reproductive cycle of a cat (estrus) occurs in a special way. The time of ovulation, that is, the exit of an egg in search of a sperm into the abdominal cavity, occurs in cats after, and not before mating. Not all eggs mature at the same time, and 12-48 hours remain capable of fertilization. In this case, the sperm inside the body of the female can be viable for 4-5 days. Therefore, embryos in the womb can develop with some lag one from another – the duration of gestation, therefore, can fluctuate. Moreover, if a cat walks uncontrollably, then already being pregnant, she can conceive again (scientific definition of superfetatio, additional fertilization, superfetation). There are cases when a low level of progesterone provokes estrus in an already pregnant cat. As a result, a new sexual activity will be provoked between the third and sixth weeks. An additional pregnancy is not excluded if the groom is nearby. Then problems cannot be avoided – either one of the litters will die, or the cat will give birth again after several weeks of full-term second kittens. It will be difficult for such a mother to feed and raise many children on her own. So it is better to monitor the pet during the period when she is pregnant. Continue reading
Bengalis do not belong to the breed, confirming the saying “afraid as a cat of water.” If desired, the animals themselves play with water in the bathroom, do not refuse to bathe. Owners should consider:
– too warm, and even more so hot water, is contraindicated for cats;
– cleaning agents of the owners are not suitable for animals – you need to buy special cat shampoos to avoid allergies, where the developers balanced the concentration of alkalis;
– you need to teach a bath with a little warm water from a young age, offer it no more than once a month, preferably after clipping.
It’s nice to train a Bengal kitten to blow dry. If the animal comes dirty from a walk – use the so-called dry shampoos without abusing water procedures. Coarse grooming powder is a modern version that continues the tradition of UK breeders who, in past centuries, brought shorthair coats into perfect order using bran. Continue reading
The Bengal cat breed is becoming increasingly popular. This means that sellers of kittens are becoming more and more, and you can already get a pet on the Internet without much hassle. And if you want to save money – even with your hands. However, those who know the information or have experience buying animals understand that it is better to go to the kennel for a thoroughbred cat than to dubious sellers who blindly pursue fashion.
WHAT KENNELS ARE
Nurseries are breeders who have proven and selected manufacturers: males and females. Such institutions are necessarily registered in felinological systems and clubs. Only a kennel with such registration can guarantee that breed standards are strictly adhered to, and kitten buyers receive 100% Bengalis.
An important advantage of nurseries is that they make sure that the kittens are genetically healthy. Like all breeding breeds, the Bengal cat breed is susceptible to a number of genetic diseases. Therefore, it is important that manufacturers are tested for hereditary diseases. Continue reading
