Bengal cat breeding: how to get healthy offspring

If the owner of a Bengal cat is not a professional breeder, but plans to have offspring from his cat, it is worth collecting information about the mating in advance. The period of estrus and the subsequent “marriage” of a cat is a difficult and exciting period of their life, but while she is still a kitten, many people don’t think about such a process as mating Bengal cats. A few months of infancy, the minutes are fast, and the moment will come when problems arise, requiring an immediate solution. It is wise to be prepared for them and to cope wisely.

Basic Information on Bengal Cat Mating Readiness
Bengal females do not belong to those that mature early – a cat is considered sexually mature only at the end of the first year of life, although estrus can occur earlier. Cats are ready to continue the genera somewhat earlier than this period – in the 7-9th month the young male for the first time shows an unequivocal interest in the weaker sex. The specific first term, as well as the age of mating during life, depends on the condition of the animal, its individual characteristics. Continue reading

Basic information on fertilization features leading to problems

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

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
