Our Bengal male Bronte (IW SGC FraserValley Denalis Thunder) was born in Canada. He came to us in Germany when he was one-year-old. He loves trips to the lakes in the area in summer.


He walks like a dog on a leash. What he likes most is riding on the big excursion boats and keeping his nose in the wind. He likes to splash in the water and play with the swans and ducks.


Even the drive to the various destinations is an adventure for him. He is terribly curious and wants to see everything out of the car window.

He has been used as a tomcat in our Bengal cattery for several years and is a great father. He passes on his great character and gentle nature to his kittens. He is what a Bengal cat should be: Wild looks – gentle nature. We are very happy that we can share our lives with him.
