We are pleased to announce that both our queens Glitterglam Shiuli Rainbow and Cinnamonpaws Zana of AsuraCats have tested normal for Pyruvate kinase deficiency (PK Def). This means that there is no chance any kittens from them will have this condition.
PK Deficiency is a genetic condition known in the Bengal breed (as well as some others) which causes anaemia in affected cats, including sometimes a severe form of anaemia which can be life threatening. More information on PK Deficiency
Some cats are carriers of the disease and therefore have no symptoms, but offspring can be affected. This is why it is important to test breeding cats.
A few people devoted to the Blue Bengal are working towards gaining them provisional status with British governing body the Governing Council of the Cat Fancy (GCCF) so that they can become a recognised colour with the GCCF and shown at GCCF shows (at the moment they can only be shown as new traits with TICA in Britain).
We have a proposal to be put forward in October 2012 to the The Bengal Cat Club, and we hope to make some progress soon.
This is a step forward for the very beautiful Blues and one that we are very happy about here at AsuraCats.
Some new photos of Zana’s litter ready end of September. Beautiful kittens with very outgoing personalities! Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested or for more information, all enquiries welcome. This litter are amazingly friendly and people loving just like their mummy 🙂
Our kittens grow up as part of our household therefore have loving and friendly temperaments. They will come to you vet checked, vaccinated, treated for worms and fleas and with 12 weeks free pet insurance. You will receive a 4 generation pedigree and they will be registered with TICA – papers will be sent to you once proof of neutering has been received. They will also come with a sample of food and cat litter and a lifetime of help and support.
Kitten prices start at £500 but may be more depending on quality. A deposit of £100 will reserve the kitten of your choice. Deposits are non-refundable.
