About Us

“It all began with a dream”

I had always kept cats. Indeed, they were a big part of my growing up and have maintained a relatively constant presence throughout my life. Even when I first ventured out of my parents home and started a family with my wife (Vicky), a cat – a beautiful chocolate seal point Birman boy going by the name Zeus, was the first thing we sought for companionship. In 2013, that year heralded in the return of breast cancer for my wife, after an initial scare in 2005, and a multitude of other health woes. An anxiousness and depression stemming from the cancer and subsequent treatments, led my wife and I to seek the comfort of what was familiar to us and the unconditional love that came from fostering kittens and homeless cats. We found it quite simple really, I loved them and in turn they loved us back.

A passion was found, when a retired and spayed Bengal queen found her way into our home. Needless to say, she never left.

Eclipse now resides with my parents, but does return to visit us from time to time. When she does, she absolutely reigns supreme over our cattery and helps us keep our entire family, the furred and not, all in line!

OUR BREEDING PROGRAM

AN OUTLINE OF OUR STANDARDS AND PRACTICE.

To us here at Wilmer Cattery Bengals, breeding for good genetics and temperament is absolutely paramount. All our bengal breeders are tested for genetic Bengal Progressive Retinal Atrophy (PRA-b) and PK Deficiency (Erythrocyte Pyruvate Kinase Deficiency) and are regularly vetted to ensure supreme health ( FIV, FeLV, and FIP negative) before joining and whilst in our breeding programs. We also perform coat color testing, so we can properly plan and have more control over the litters born. In this way, we can breed to meet requests of potential new adoptive families and ensure that the majority of our kittens have loving homes to go to even before they are born.

We have been blessed to find great mentors, both here and interstate, and the Wilmer Cattery breeding program works in and with these other selected begal cat breeders, to improve and maintain the good standards already obtained within the breed. We hope that if you are reading this as an individual looking to adopt or reserve one of our kittens that you find this website informative and that you would feel free to ask of us any questions that you might have about our Bengals or the breed in general.

Many thanks and we hope to hear from you soon.
