CHEETAHSDEN KATNISS

Bahiya Painted Ripples x Sehnsational Fanlettah

Cheetahsden Katniss was chosen by Erin from Frisco, Texas. 

 

A note from Katniss' family: 

 

"We adopted Katniss in April of 2014 from Kelli and Cheetahsden Cattery.  About a year after losing our previous Bengal, I was ready to let myself love and care for another one.  I started looking on websites from North Carolina to California, Illinois to South Texas but I found the best one practically in my own backyard.  I was so impressed with everything I read on Cheetahsden's website, fell in love with the photo of baby Katniss and contacted Kelli.  Kelli was always quick to answer any questions thoroughly and get back to me in a timely manner.  I am so happy that I kept looking and found Kelli, as she is a one-of-a-kind breeder who will also become your friend.  We live in a retirement community in Frisco, Texas, in Neighborhood 8! Katniss is the darling of Neighborhood 8.  She is such an amazing cat - she is always waiting on the rug in the entry way when we come home.  She is so friendly to anyone who comes into our home, greeting them and wanting their attention.  She will get up on the bar and put her front paws on their chest until they say hello and give her a little petting.  She is well behaved and really likes to play." ~ Erin

CHEETAHSDEN PAISLEY

Exoticrose Pinball Wizard x Cheetahsden Kasha Shanti​

Cheetahsden Paisley was chosen by Carolyn and Eddie from Mineral Wells, Texas. 

A note from Paisley's family: 

"I still remember when my husband and I went to Kelli's to pick up our baby, Paisley. I had been in touch with Kelli for several months before I finally took the leap and picked a kitten. Kelli is a fantastic breeder. She doesn't have a problem letting you visit and look around. I have found when a breeder lets you visit and look around, they have nothing to hide. Kelli makes it so easy to talk to and she answered all my questions. I had never had a Bengal before but I fell in love with their look. Paisley still has the look of a wild cat sometimes by the way she stands and the way she holds her head. Her fur is the softest I have ever felt. Everybody that sees her cannot believe how beautiful she is. We have an American Bulldog, Sadie, and Zoe, our little Morkie. Paisley gets along with both dogs and sometimes she and Zoe chase each other through the house. Zoe can be a real pest sometimes, but Paisley has never let her claws out. Paisley is very vocal. She lets you know when she wants something. She also makes her cute little sounds when she see birds outside. And she loves to climb. The higher the better. She is long and lanky with the longest tail I have seen on a cat. We have really enjoyed having her as part of our family."  ~ Carolyn and Eddie

CHEETAHSDEN ISABELLA

Exoticrose Loverboy x Cheetahsden Maya Shanti

Cheetahsden Isabella was chosen by Greg and Tara from Plano, Texas.  
A note from Isabella's family:  

"We rescued two Bengals and fell in love with them. After losing one to feline HCM, we decided to adopt two more. It was comforting to know that Kelli was already screening her cats for HCM. After visiting several local catteries, we were fortunate to come across Kelli and Cheetahsden Bengals. After one visit, we immediately decided to adopt two more Bengals from Kelli. We made almost weekly visits to her house and visited with several kittens. Visiting Kelli was a completely different experience compared to the other catteries. It is apparent that her cats and kittens were part of her family. The cat families had dedicated living quarters with several roaming around playing in the house. We have enjoyed Chloe and Isabella for 7 years. When it comes time for a new kitten or kittens, she is the only place we would go and I hope she still has her cattery." ~ Greg and Tara

CHEETAHSDEN FEATHER

Bahiya Painted Ripples x Cheetahsden Tori Yaki

Cheetahsden Feather has been adopted by Gladys from Houston, Texas.  

A note from Feather's family: 

"When I adopted my new Bengal kitten from Cheetahsden, I feel like Kelli adopted me. I’ve never been treated in a more kindly, patient and thoughtful manner by a breeder of cats or dogs. This was especially important to me since I had recently lost my lovely 13 year old Abyssinian to cancer and was looking for another cat to add warmth and joy to my home. While I have had many cats over my lifetime, I was not familiar with the Bengal breed and I had many questions. Kelli addressed all my concerns and guided me to the “right” kitten for me and for my four year old Italian Greyhound, Daisy.  We picked Feather, a striking brown marbled female kitten, who has moved right in and taken over my home.  Kelli does a remarkable job of socializing her kittens and getting them and their new owners ready for the delightful but somewhat tricky experience of adding a new member to a household.  Feather has taken to me since our first meeting and surprisingly, slept soundly in my lap as I drove all the way from Dallas to Houston.  Since arriving, she has bonded with my dog Daisy, playing endlessly and even snuggling and sleeping next to her on my bed each night.   I am so very grateful to have met Kelli and know that she will be a resource to which I can turn should I need any assistance in taking care of my Feather." ~ Gladys Sparkman (July, 2016)

CHEETAHSDEN CLEOPATRA

Exoticrose Pinball Wizard and Exoticrose Destiny

Cleopatra was adopted by Paulette from Dallas, Texas. 

A note from Cleo's family:

"The choice was made - I wanted a Bengal kitty.  I have always been a cat lover but had not experienced the joy of Bengals.  I found Kelli at a Cat Show and there was no doubt my feline would be from Cheetahsden Bengals!  Along came Cleo with the most beautiful green eyes and wonderful markings.  I do not have children and my pets are my fur babies.  I was so excited about getting my little one and Kelli let me have visitations before she was old enough to leave her mother.  During one of those visits I decided Cleo needed a friend and it just so happened that there was another little one available.  I decided Leo needed to join our family!  

 

Kelli these two have brought so much joy to my life.  Thank you for doing such a wonderful job breeding such beautiful cats.  You have always been available to answer my questions and concerns.  Cleo is indeed a princess and Leo....well he is such a goofball and they both can be very loud when they have the urge to utilize their vocal cords.       

They love high spaces and will ensure that whatever is on the ledge or counter would be fun to push to the edge and so much fun to see fall to the floor.  Cleo and Leo you provide me with hours of laughter and I love you both sooooooooo much!" ~ Paulette

CHEETAHSDEN J.LO

Bahiya Painted Jungles of Lonestar x Cheetahsden Head in the Clouds 

Cheetahsden J.Lo has been adopted by Chrissy and her loving family from Flower Mound, Texas.

A note from J.Lo's family: 

"I had been contacting several breeders for one month all outside of Texas. Finally ran across Cheetahsden Bengals page. I immediately got excited being that Kelli was right here in Texas, not only that, but 20 minutes from my home. I live in Flower Mound. I contacted her. Kelli was very good in responding my emails and answering every question in detail. I wanted a boy but a girl became available unexpected. Kelli still gave me the opportunity to decide if it was something I would be interested in. I had expressed I wanted a brown boy. She was a snow and a girl. Being unsure I asked Kelli if me and my three boys could come visit her and interact with her before making any decisions. Kelli is extremely nice! Very welcoming and very passionate about her babies. We spent almost two hours playing with 'J.Lo' and her siblings! It was quite an amazing experience. We fell in love with her and decided to adopt her! The time came to bring little J.Lo home. Kelli made sure to give us thorough instructions of how to transition her into our home . Sending food, toys and blankets of her families scent, even a book specializing in cat behavior. As soon as we got home, she was already bonded with me. Sitting on my lap, cuddling looking and following me everywhere I went. She used her scratching post the next morning and her litter box! I was pretty impressed! She is very well behaved, well mannered and extremely cuddly and loving. It felt as if she had been with us since she had been born. J.Lo is the cat I’ve always dreamed of but didn’t think it could be a reality. Our entire family is so in love with her even my aunt and she’s a dog person! They all are so impressed with her looks and how fun and good of a little furry baby she is!!! She is the best thing that has happened to us . She has really brought our family together. Kelli truly does such an outstanding job with her babies you can tell by the way they behave. If you are looking to purchase a Bengal baby look no more! Kelli is the best Breeder and you just can’t go wrong with her. She is there through every step of the way. She truly loves all her babies and it shows! I would definitely come back for a second one if I decide to get another one in the future! We are forever thankful for Kelli and this amazing cattery." ~ Chrissy

CHEETAHSDEN JAFARI

Medoz Winter Knight of Kingsmark x Cheetahsden Tsiara

Cheetahsden Jafari has been adopted by Julie from Richardson, Texas.

A note from Jafari's family: 

"Jafari is our miracle cat. We thought we would never have another feline in our family because my husband is extremely allergic to cats. I researched hypoallergenic cats and learned people with cat allergies may have little or no response to Bengals, and we visited Cheetahsden to gather more information. Kelli explained no cat is hypoallergenic but many people with allergies are able to breathe freely around Bengals. She showed us the current dames and sires on site while answering any questions we had. She then introduced us to the most beautiful kitten with wildly exotic markings and aqua blue eyes. It's good my husband had no allergic reaction during our meeting because I instantly fell in love with Jafari! We adopted that big-pawed soft kitten and are so grateful to have such a loving cat as part of our family." ~ Julie

CHEETHASDEN GOMEZ

RW DGC Exoticrose Rikki Tikki Tabby x Cheetahsden Head Over Heels

Cheetahsden Gomez was adopted by Lisa from Garland, Texas.
A note from Gomez' family:  

"It took me three years, researching the breed before I was ready to adopt my first pedigreed kitty.  I searched breeders from across the country and found Cheetahsden Bengals right here in Texas.  I contacted Kelli and knew immediately that I found my breeder. She was more than a breeder, just breeding cats.  She truly cares about her cats, the kittens and their placement.  I was so worried because I have a big orange cat and a dog and my precious Gomez walked right in and was so well-adjusted.  I just love this guy.  I could not be more grateful to Kelli."  ~ Lisa

CHEETAHSDEN DROGON

Leopardcats Tao Tao and Cheetahsden Tori Yaki

Drogon was adopted by Hagen and Sarah from Southlake, Texas. 

A note from Drogon's family:

"We couldn’t be happier with Drogon, our new Bengal from Kelli at Cheetahsden Bengals.  She went above and beyond in providing knowledgeably detailed instruction on introducing “Drogie” to our existing cats as well as getting him accustomed to his new home.  She even included many other things to help such as a book, few of their favorite toys, food, & much more.  We highly recommend Cheetahsden to anyone looking for an amazing Bengal kitty to add to your family." ~ Hagen and Sarah

CHEETAHSDEN COCO CHANEL

Exoticrose Rikki Tikki Tabby x Exoticrose Island Girl

Cheetahsden Coco has been adopted by Julie and Jacob from Round Rock, Texas.

A note from Coco's family: 

"I have owned many pure-bred cats and as much as I've loved them all, have dealt with health issues ranging from chronic allergies to more serious and even fatal conditions. I had begun to believe that this was just the nature of a pure-breed... then I found Cheetah's Den.  I have had my Bengal, Coco, for 7 years, and she is healthy and confident. I recall when I first spoke with Kelli about acquiring Coco, she told me she likes to keep the kittens 2 weeks longer than the traditional separation from the mother. This, she said, increases the cat's confidence as an adult, and I can clearly see this demonstrated in Coco from her bouncy stride to her energy level and unrelenting agenda! Coco's coat is always soft, shiny and luxurious as well. I have often heard, "she is the most beautiful cat I've ever seen" - and I have to say that I agree!   Kelli also has been great with follow-up and keeping client's posted on relevant issues regarding your cat or just cat's in general. This outreach is not only helpful but also a thoughtful touch. I highly, highly recommend Cheetah's Den."  ~ Julie

CHEETAHSDEN RAZZ

Bahiya Painted Ripples x Sehnsational Fanlettah
Cheetahsden Razz was adopted by Ed and Lauren from Flower Mound, Texas. 
 
A note from Razz' family:  

 

"Razz continues to bring so much joy to our lives.  He has turned out to be every bit the lover that you raised him to be.  Stunningly beautiful, he greets visitors, follows us throughout the house and cuddles up in the most amazing and adorable ways.  Razz loves to play fetch with us and plays endlessly with our other bengal Leo, his playmate.  They love each other very much. Thanks for raising such a nice son.  Keep up your wonderful breeding business and continue to bring happiness to other families." ~ Ed and Lauren

CHEETAHSDEN LUCKY

CH. Epsilon Razor x Cheetahsden I'm So Catkins "Monkey"

Cheetahsden Lucky was adopted by Val and Celia, along with his sister, Icey.

A note from Lucky's family: 

"My Cheetahsden Bengals are AWESOME!!  I got my first Bengal in 2012. In June 2015, I began my search for another Bengal from a breeder in Texas to add to my family. I contacted Kelli Faram of Cheetahsden Bengals. She answered promptly. I filled out her questionnaire. I specifically wanted an SLP spotted male. And the wait began. Finally! On  March 17, 2016,(St. Patrick's Day!) she let me know immediately I'm So Catkins' Monkey' had a litter of 3 kittens. Two of the kittens were SLP, one male and one female. Within a day she let me know the male would be a marble and the girl spotted. All I could see was two white kittens! I decided the take the girl and Irish Cream became mine. Kelli posts weekly photos of her kittens. As I watched Lucky Charms' marble coloring develop, it did not take long and Lucky became mine too!! Kelli sent emails, pictures, videos, everything I needed to watch my babies grow( I am 4 hours from her.) My husband and I  went to visit them in April. We stayed almost two hours playing with Icey and Lucky. Kelli answered any questions we had. She is so well educated on Bengals. She has been a wonderful breeder to deal with! I have had my kittens home with us for almost a month now. Both have wonderful dispositions and charming personalities. They are a whirlwind of activity and are so funny to watch!  They crawl into ours laps and go to sleep when they get tired! Their pelts are super soft and silky. When I am ready for my next Bengal, Kelli is definitely the breeder I will use.  You cannot go wrong with her." ~ Val and Celia

CHEETAHSDEN ENKIDU "Enki"

Bahiya Painted Ripples x Cheetashden Head in the Clouds

Cheetahsden Enkidu "Inki" is living with Josh and Adrienne from Palo Alto, California.
 
A note from Enki's family:  

"Kellli’s Cheetahsden is a marvel. Raising Bengals for Kelli is much more than a business. It is a calling, and those of us lucky enough to adopt one of her kittens are blessed by her passion and commitment. We came to Kelli with the experience of having shared our lives with another deeply beloved Bengal for 12 happy years, so we thought that we were pretty experienced. But Kelli proved to be not only a superbly careful and attentive breeder of wonderful cats and a caring friend, but also a teacher, and mentor. Our adoption experience was outstanding from the very beginning. When we first contacted Kelli, she spent a lot of time corresponding with us to make sure she understood exactly what we hoped for in our next kitten. From the moment of the birth of our darling Enki, Kelli shared photo’s and stories, ensuring that the match of kitty to adopting home would be right. She brought us up to speed with the latest thinking on feeding, health, exercise, and kitten-care. After Enki arrived (hand delivered!), Kelli kept in touch to make sure the adoption was going as we all hoped. Our Enki is a joy - totally gorgeous, with wild looks that take our friends’ breath away. But above all is a personality that won’t quit. Kelli breeds her Bengals not just for great beauty, but for great character. That character is then shaped by the loving early home that she provides to each and every one of her kittens. The result is a happy, engaging, active, and hugely people-oriented kitty. And very satisfied adopting families. We feel so privileged to be part of the Cheetahsden family."  ~ Josiah Ober and Adrienne Mayor

CHEETAHSDEN MAVERICK

Exoticrose Pinball Wizard x Exoticrose Destiny

Cheetahsden Maverick was adopted by Jason and Francis from Allen, Texas. 

A note from Maverick's family: 

"My wife and I were very happy with our experience dealing with Cheetahsden Bengals.  The knowledge and care for our kitty was apparent from day one when we picked him out with Kelli's help.  The attention paid to each kitten was excellent in terms of veterinary care, quality of food, grooming, etc. and we were given many details about how to best care for our new member of the family once we took him home with us.  That was great because my wife and I had never owned a cat before so we felt much more prepared to best care for him.  I cant believe it has been 7 years since we received our cat from Kelli and Cheetahsden.  We are so happy to have him in our lives and he is certainly part of the family.  We do own another Bengal that we purchased from another breeder and while the service, communication, etc. was okay it wasnt nearly as thorough and caring as what we received with our kitten from Cheetahsden Bengals.  I would definitely recommend Cheetahsden to anyone interested in a beautiful Bengal.  They are awesome animals and have such personalities too.  If you are considering a Bengal dont look anywhere else than Cheetahsden Bengals.  You won't regret the decision as I can say it was one of the best and happiest decisions my wife and I have made.  My wife tells me all the time that our Bengal, Maverick, was the best gift I have ever gotten her."  ~ Jason and Francis 

CHEETAHSDEN BRUISER

Leopardcats Tao Tao x Cheetahsden Tori yaki

Bruiser joined the loving home of Laura and Emily from Austin, Texas.

A note from Bruiser's family: 

"After losing a beloved kitty, I decided on a Bengal kitten. Finding Kelli at Cheetahsden Bengals was a blessing! She is total "Bengal Guru" and it was obvious I had come to the right place after researching other breeders. 

 

We ended up adopting not only one but two kitties...Nala and Bruiser. They are healthy, happy, and sweet!!  Both of them adjusted easily into our home and are inseparable with our other cat. 

 

Even before we brought them home, Kelli kept us up to date with everything we would need to know about our new babies, even sending us photo updates of them.  We were able to meet the kittens before bringing them home with us! She was so thoughtful to  provide a goodie bag of their favorite food and toys!

 

Thank You Kelli for our fur babies...they bring us so much joy!"

Laurie and Emily and Nala, Bruiser, and Bella

CHEETAHSDEN FRANKIE "Bing"

CH. Epsilon Razor x Cheetahsden Kasha Shanti

 

 

Cheetahsden Frankie, aka "Bing" is now king of his home in Lubbock, Texas.  

A note from Bing's family:  

"Oh wow, where do I even begin with telling about my most prize possessions which are my Bengal babies. After doing some research on the breed, I found Kelli and her wonderful Cheetahsden Bengals cattery. In my opinion, she is the best and ONLY breeder that I would use or recommend for these amazing creatures. She was very informative, and so kind to let us come meet and visit my incredible “Frankie”, aka, “Bing”. Kelli always opened her home to us (and we went A LOT). We have developed a true friendship with her, that I cherish. Bing is a singleton, which brought on some challenges that we now willingly deal with, because of the incredible place he has in my heart. He is very headstrong and knows his place in our household, which is King!! Bing has a fascinating personality, which makes watching him grow and mature that much more interesting and fulfilling. He is loving, when he wants to be, and very vocal. I adore it when I come home, and he is at the very door that I enter, ready to greet me with his ever so strong “head-butt” and somersault. I have had cats before, I have had purebred cats before…..but I have NEVER had any animal that means as much to me as my Bengals. Bing is one of my children, and I am honored to have him. (Now if I can convince my son who recently moved out, that he cannot take our precious Bing with him) Ha Ha. That brings me to another point, my children have also bonded with these amazing cats, and vice versa. I can’t tell you enough how incredible these Bengals and Kelli are. She produces the best of the best, and I feel very lucky to have met her and brought my beautiful Bing home. He has most definitely earned his place in my home, and our hearts."  ~ Shaina

CHEETAHSDEN TENSHI

CH. Epsilon Razor x Sehnsational Fanlettah

Cheetahsden Tenshi has been adopted by Deborah and her family from Chesapeake, Virginia. 

A note from Tenshi's family: 

"By some stroke of providence, we stumbled upon Cheetahsden as a light in our time of darkness. Our hearts were broken after our beautiful Bengal and family member of nineteen years passed away. Once we told Kelli our story, we were astonished to discover that she knew our sweet, beloved Te’essa’s history, that Te’essa was from the early litters of Cheetahsden, and that the lineage continues in present Cheetahsden lines. Through her kindness and research, Kelli shared with us pictures of Te’essa’s parents and her pedigree, helping us to find some closure. We are so grateful to her for her compassion and empathy. Once we were ready, Kelli helped us through the process of welcoming home a new family member from Cheetahsden. Our new angel, Tenshi, is Te’essa’s great niece and she has healed our hearts. Kelli provided us with so much guidance and detailed information that made the transition so much easier. From day one, Tenshi has been so affectionate, friendly, playful, adventurous, and loving—all thanks to the expertise and caring upbringing that she received from birth. We are eternally grateful to Kelli and Cheetahsden for putting the heartbeat back in our family." ~ The Witherow Family

EXOTICROSE MADAGASCAR "MADDIE"

RW DGC Exoticrose Rikki Tikki Tabby x Exoticrose Mailani

 

 

Maddie was adopted by Roger and his family from Dallas, Texas.

 

A note from Maddie's family:

“Several years ago my family lost our beloved dog, Duke.  He was a 5 year old Doberman that we had raised as a baby alongside my youngest daughter, Emma and our oldest daughter Lauren.  When we lost him unexpectedly the girls were devastated, as was I.  After several months we began entertaining the idea of another pet but we all decided against having another Dobie; the loss of Duke was too painful and for us, the idea of having another Dobie seemed as though we were replacing him.  The girls have always liked cats, as do I, so we started our search.  I remember visiting local shelters and adoption fairs at our local pet store.  The problem we faced with our desire to adopt a cat was my youngest daughter’s allergies.  She had several bouts of reacting to cats; eyes swelling, itchiness, etc.  As I conducted my research into various hypoallergenic breeds, I came across the Bengal.  Their appearance was striking so we took a deep dive into better understanding their personality, temperament and background.  Once certain that this was the breed for us we began searching the web for a reputable breeder in the South.  I phone interviewed several in the State of Texas and little did we know that less than 100 miles from us was Cheetahsden.  Kelli was amazing; so informative and honest.  She was timely in corresponding with me and welcomed my family and I into her home for an on-site visit.  I also read several testimonials that solidified my choice and comfort in adopting from Kelli.  While visiting her Cheetahsden, the girls and I fell in love with Madagascar (Maddie).  She was one of Kelli’s retired Queens; adorable, sweet and playful.  Her coat was lush, dense, soft with distinctive leopard-like spots/rosettes which was exactly what we wanted in our Bengal.  Maddie brings joy to our family, loves the girls, welcomes me home every day after a long day at work and she’s my built-in alarm clock in the mornings.  On my bed, meowing, purring and seeking some attention.  Everyone who has met Maddie is taken away by her beauty; we’ve received many compliments from friends, family and neighbors.  She’s very healthy and active.  Best of all, the girls have never experienced an allergic reaction around her so they’re able to love on her and enjoy every moment. 

 

Thanks to Kelli and Cheetahsden Bengals for making our family whole again." ~ Roger, Lauren and Emma

CHEETAHSDEN ICE

Bahiya Painted Jungles of Lonestar x Cheetahsden Head in the Clouds 

Ice has been adopted by Jason and Francis from Allen, Texas.

A note from Ice's family: 

"In January of 2019, we took home our new furry bundle of joy, Ice.  I have to commend Kelli with Cheetahs Den Bengals on how well she communicated with us from the time we expressed interest in adopting to the point that we picked up Ice to take him home with us.  She continues to communicate with us now that we have Ice home to check in on him and make sure we don’t have any questions or concerns.  Whether you are a first time owner of a Bengal or have several Bengals like we do Kelli will answer your questions and prepare you for adding your new kitty to your family.  I have nothing but great things to say about the process of adoption with Cheetahs Den Bengals.  I would definitely recommend Cheetahs Den Bengals to anyone looking for a great experience finding a personable and beautiful cat.  Kelli takes great care in the food, hygiene, and veterinary care of all of her cats while they are in her care too.  We have adopted two cats from Kelli now because she really goes the extra mile and we can tell she loves and cares for all of her cats.  We had some concerns about getting Ice acclimated with his older brothers Maverick and Goose, but with Kelli’s help all three are starting to get comfortable with one another." ~ Jason and Francis 

CHEETAHSDEN NALA

Leopardcats Tao Tao x Cheetahsden Painted Cloud 

Nala was adopted by Laura and Emily from Austin, Texas.

CHEETAHSDEN EMOJI

Bahiya Painted Ripples x Cheetahsden Tori Yaki

 

Emoji was adopted by Ed and Deborah from Chesapeake, Virginia,  along with Cheetahsden Tenshi.

A note from Emoji's family:

“Emoji is quite the character! He and Tenshi, our first Bengal from Kelli, have been incredible additions to our family! We love watching their playful shenanigans that keep our two cattle dogs on their toes. Kelli has been wonderful keeping up with how our Bengal babies are doing, and we are so thankful for the upbringing that they had in their early lives with Cheetahsden. Emoji has such a unique marble pattern and huge eyes that fit his name and personality. He’s our handsome little man! Whenever the excitement dies down, we find him lazing in various locations around the house, his favorite being the cat tree. The cat tree is strategically placed in front of a window with bird feeders just outside, so every morning, we hear kitties chirping, inviting the birds inside to play. Both our Bengals love water, and especially Emoji! He comes running whenever he hears the water running! He also loves going out on a leash or in the kitty stroller! We couldn’t be more impressed with the beauty and temperament of Cheetahsden bengals and how well they get along together, with our dogs, and have become the most loving and energetic members of our family.”  ~ The Witherow Family

CHEETAHSDEN HUNTER

Cheetahsden Treasure Island x Cheetahsden Itsy Bitsy Spider

Hunter was chosen by Stan and Marisa from Seattle, Washington.

A note from Hunter's family:

“After owning Abyssinians for years, I thought about expanding to Bengals. Because Bengals are a mix of domestic cats and wild Asian Leopard cats, I did research and ended up contacting breeders who were also wildlife biologists in Montana who had created a successful breeding program with wild Asian Leopard cats. They recommended Kelli Faram from Cheetahsden (then living in Issaquah). Teak, my Bengal from her cattery was the finest cat I had ever lived with. He was affectionate, fun, a ball of hilarious energy, loyal and smart. When he passed away, Kelli had moved to Texas and I ended up getting two more Bengals from two different catteries in my area. Not all catteries are created equal. While my other two cats are very fine cats, Kelli’s cats are bred for both looks and personality and she goes the extra mile in raising them. When they come home they are litter box trained, incredibly social, love to snuggle, love humans and are curious about the other animals in the house, without being fearful. Kelli raises her cats out of cages, in the house and socializes them with humans and dogs. My second cat from Kelli, Hunter, is another delight. He has already won over the other animals in the house, sits on a little bed on my husband’s desk to watch him work. He is a great deal like my first Bengal from Kelli, sweet, even tempered, unafraid, snuggly, energetic, loyal like a dog and a joy to live with. Kelli flew him up from Texas and he immediately walked out of his crate as if he owned the airport. If you have done your research on Bengals and think a Bengal is the right breed for you, I cannot recommend Kelli highly enough. Her cats are worth the price.”  ~ Stan and Marisa 

CHEETAHSDEN LEO

Exoticrose Pinball Wizard and Exoticrose Meilani

Leo was adopted by Paulette from Dallas, Texas. 

A note from Leo's family:

"The choice was made - I wanted a Bengal kitty.  I have always been a cat lover but had not experienced the joy of Bengals.  I found Kelli at a Cat Show and there was no doubt my feline would be from Cheetahsden Bengals!  Along came Cleo with the most beautiful green eyes and wonderful markings.  I do not have children and my pets are my fur babies.  I was so excited about getting my little one and Kelli let me have visitations before she was old enough to leave her mother.  During one of those visits I decided Cleo needed a friend and it just so happened that there was another little one available.  I decided Leo needed to join our family!  

 

Kelli these two have brought so much joy to my life.  Thank you for doing such a wonderful job breeding such beautiful cats.  You have always been available to answer my questions and concerns.  Cleo is indeed a princess and Leo....well he is such a goofball and they both can be very loud when they have the urge to utilize their vocal cords.       

They love high spaces and will ensure that whatever is on the ledge or counter would be fun to push to the edge and so much fun to see fall to the floor.  Cleo and Leo you provide me with hours of laughter and I love you both sooooooooo much!" ~ Paulette

CHEETAHSDEN PEBBLES

DGC Exoticrose Pinball Wizard x Cheetahsden Catkins

Cheetahsden Pebbles was adopted by Jeremy and Sam from Frisco, Texas. 

A note from Pebbles' family: 

"If you are considering buying a Bengal kitten, you should talk to Kelli at Cheetahsden Bengals. From your first conversation with Kelli, you could tell that she really has a passion for her cats and the breed. You can also tell this in the disposition of her cats. We both had cats growing up and really loved the Bengals. We could not wait for our very own. We could have adopted from just anyone, but we knew we wanted a Cheetahsden Bengal. We saved our money and could not be happier with our Bengals. Kelli shared her knowledge on every aspect of bringing home a kitten and completely prepared us for the arrival of Pebbles (and later Bert). Pebbles walked right into our home, the most loving and friendly cat. If ever we have any questions about cats, we email or call Kelli and she is always available to help us. Simply put. If you are looking for a caring, professional and knowledgeable breeder, look no further." ~ Jeremy and Sam

CHEETAHSDEN SASHA

CH. Epsilon Razor x IW SGC Cheetahsden Head Games

Cheetahsden Sasha was adopted by Chuck and Laura from Plano, Texas, along with Cheetahsden Chloe.

A note from Sasha's family: 

"I went looking for a Bengal kitten after my Max, who is a Bengal, lost his lifelong buddy.  I am not new to the Bengal world, as I have had two other Bengals before Max. But this time, I was going to be very selective this go-around in my search.  I have learned that constant human socialization at a very young age is extremely important. You will have a very socialized kitten and that was what I was wanting.  I went searching the internet for breeders around Dallas, Oklahoma and Louisiana. At the time I was looking, kittens were just not to be found. One day when I decided to search again, Cheetahsden Bengals popped up. I was very impressed with the website and decided to reach out to Kelli. She currently had two litters of kittens. She said that I was more than welcomed to come by and take a look. Typically, there are just one or two kittens that stand out from the rest. Well, when I went over there, they were ALL gorgeous and just as sweet as can be!!!  I was in complete awe! I texted my husband and asked if I could get two. He is so wonderful and he said, "Yes, whatever I wanted to do". Music to my ears! But the hard part was - which two!  Luckily, we had already decided on no males. So that narrowed it down but it was still very hard. All of the kittens were just as sweet as sweet could be and just as beautiful as beautiful could be. I picked out two of them.  I later brought my husband by Kelli's who then could totally understand my awe. One of the kittens that we had selected to bring home when she got older, fell asleep in his arms. It was such a sweet moment. The one thing that stands out about Kelli is that these are her babies, they are not just kittens. She is there when they are born and she is there every step of the way. She spends a lot time and energy into each and every one of them and it shows. Another thing that I really like about her program is that she photographs them starting when they were born and continues this every week that she has them, which is generally at least 12 weeks. She is excellent photographer and she knows just how to capture that special moment and personality in these photographs. She goes way above and beyond any other breeder that I have come across in this regard and I absolutely love this! It is so special to be able to see their baby pictures and how they develop as they get older. I find myself, even two years later, going back through these pictures. She is also very quick to answer any questions you may have or give you updates on your adoptive kitten. Even after you bring your kitten home, Kelli is still there if you need any guidance from her and she wants to be there for you as well as those kittens are very special to her as she not only brought them into the world, she raised them the first three months of their life. If you are looking for a stunning and well socialized furbaby to become a member of your family, I would highly recommend Kelli and Cheetahsden Bengals. You won't be disappointed." ~ Chuck and Laura

CHEETAHSDEN ZEEK and CHEETAHSDEN ZAK

Bangles Changbai x Cheetahsden Lovelettah 

Cheetahsden Ezekiel "Zeek" and Cheetahsden Zacharias "Zak" were adopted by Jerry and Lori from Georgetown, Texas. ​

A note from Zeek and Zak's family: 

 

"We adopted Zeek and Zak March 2019 from Kelli’s Cheetahsden Bengals.  We’d lost our tabby cat, Samson, 3½ years earlier and had a bad experience with a different breeder before meeting Kelli.  Kelli listened to our story and understood our loss.  She answered our questions quickly and was always kind and friendly as we texted/e-mailed back and forth more times than we can count.  We were impressed with everything we read on Cheetahsden's website, so went to meet her and get a tour of her Cattery.  We then placed a deposit with Kelli for 2 males from the same litter.  We thought it best to have two siblings as they would know each other from birth and would be able to keep each other company whenever we were away from the house.

 

Zeek and Zak were born December 26, 2018 (almost a Christmas present).  Kelli kept us informed frequently on their progress with pictures and letters.  She taught them to be comfortable around people and other animals.  She allowed us to visit the kittens several times before the day we brought them home.  They were litter box trained well before coming home with us, and it was so funny to see them using their litter box at Kelli’s when they were still very very tiny.  Kelli was always gracious, honest, helpful, and soon just part of the family.  She provided helpful information about how to transition the kittens to our home, their pedigree, a checklist of things to consider before the kittens came home with us, and helped in any way she could to ensure the safety and well-being of Zeek and Zak.  The day we picked them up, she sent them packed with familiar foods, toys and blankets with their scents on them, and their baby books with their health records and other important documents.  She’d also provided us with a book about how to understand cats.

 

Zeek and Zak are now 4.5 months old and very busy.  They are sweet tempered boys.  We have never had a Bengal before, but love their look, personalities and energy.  Their fur is so soft and everybody oohs and aahs over how beautiful they are.  Both boys enjoy playing together and going to the vet and seeing all the animals and folks there.  They love taking rides in the car, going for walks in their pet stroller, meeting the neighborhood people and dogs (and pig!), and romping around in their nursery.  They chase each other and anything else that moves.  They’ve slept through the night every night since we brought them home – now that’s impressive!!!  Zak is always first for a meal and happy to finish Zeek’s food, too, if Zeek lollygags too much.  Zak is usually the first to greet us, and the most vocal about all things.  Zeek is the litter police and watches us clean the litter box and sweep up litter to make sure it meets his standards.  He will even go in the litter box after Zak has gone potty to make sure Zak has covered up his business properly.  Zeek likes to sleep on top of us and Zak prefers to snuggle behind our knees or curl up under our arms.  They are very strong and energetic.  It’s always interesting when we go into the nursery to see if they’ve moved their food bowls into their bedroom, dragged a pillow off the bed into their food area, relocated their scratching post or tunnel box, or turned on the light above the countertop in the bathroom.  They are furry love bugs, always happy when we show up and start purring as soon as we walk into their room or pick them up.

 

Kelli does an outstanding job and her Cattery is top notch.  If you are looking to purchase a Bengal, we’d say go to Kelli for the best. She is a quality breeder who loves and spoils her babies and their parents, and goes the extra mile for her customers and Bengals.  We are spoiling Zeek and Zak as much as we can; however, they are really the ones spoiling us.  They have brought much joy and entertainment to our home.  Thank you, Kelli, for being our friend and for the high quality of service you provide to your customers and the love you have for your Bengals.  Oh, Zeek and Zak say 'come see us' when you’re passing through, and they send you their love and 'chin scratches'.” – Jerry and Lori

CHEETAHSDEN SIMBA

Cheetashden Kai x Cheetahsden Rockymountasin Skye

 

Cheetahsden Simba was adopted by John and Jackie from Portland, Oregon.

A note from Simba's family: 

 

"I can't believe it has been twelve years since Simba blessed our family with his hilarious tricks that keep us laughing to this day. Simba came from Kelli at Cheetahsden and I would (and do) recommend her to all my friends that are looking for a well-adjusted, friendly and gorgeous Bengal.  We adopted a Bengal a few years before from another breeder and the experience was completely opposite of the experience we had with Kelli.  Cyndee had so many health issues her entire life. Sadly, her life was short.   We have been amazed with Simba's health, as he has never had any issues.  I believe this is due to the careful breeding protocol that Cheetahsden adheres to.  When we are ready to add another Bengal to our family, I won't look anywhere else.  Cheetahsden is the BEST!  -- John and Jackie Wilson

CHEETAHSDEN MORTY

Cheetahsden Treasure Island x Cheetahsden Itsy Bitsy Spider

Cheetahsden Morty was adopted by Will from Dallas, Texas.

A note from Morty's family: 

 

"Kelli has been an absolute pleasure to work with. She welcomed us into her home, introduced us to the kittens and really took the time to make sure we would both take care of Morty as well as verified that we knew what we were getting into when we adopted him! From the start, its obvious that all of the cats and kittens are treated incredibly well, and from a young age are already very well socialized. The "getting to know you" process between the kittens, ourselves and Kelli was a breeze. Kelli is both incredibly professional as well as personable and laid back. As for Morty- he has been such a character, and has gotten along well with everyone in our home as well as our two dogs. He adapted to our home in no time. He is playful and energetic at times (he loves his toys), but mostly sweet, loving and talkative. Working with Kelli has been an excellent experience and I can't recommend her enough for anyone looking to adopt a Bengal. -- Will

CHEETAHSDEN TERZAS LEGACY "Terz"

Dreamquest Kalahari x Cheetahsden Illusion

 

 

Cheetahsden Terz is living the good life with Joey and Christina in Denver, Colorado.  
A note from Terz and Dude's family:  

 

"Terz and Dude have been an absolute pleasure and joy to have in our lives We adore them and can not imagine including any other cats in our lives. They are exemplary members of our family unit. There is not one day that goes by that we do not comment on how grateful we are that we crossed paths with Cheetahsden Bengals. Kelli is the utmost gracious breeder and more importantly individual who holds herself and cattery at the highest standards. Both of our adopted cats have the best manners and do not even have to be restrained for their nails to be trimmed. Every person who meets them comments on their temperament and behavior as being atypical of cats. That being said, sworn "dog" people have said they would love to have a cat like ours. A cat person by nature, I know that the cats Kelli raises are above standard, she cares and loves each cat, and understands their personality and needs. Kelli helped us pair Terz with a kitten who could match her personality and they are the best of friends. Truly and deeply we considered us privileged to have met Kelli and Cheetahsden Bengals. Our cats make us smile every day and have been brought up in the most loving environment from the very start with Kelli. You can tell the difference!!!" ~ Joey and Christina

CHEETAHSDEN GREY GOOSE

Bahiya Painted Ripples x Cheetahsden Yaki Tori

 

 

Grey Goose has been adopted by Katherine from Flower Mound, Texas.

A note from Goose's family: 

"I wanted to give you a quick update on Goose.  Oh my gosh, he is absolutely wonderful.  He is not lacking for love at all.  Our family is crazy about him and he is fitting in perfectly.  Our other Bengal is already coming around and starting to play with him. Talk about energetic.  He is also so loving.  He just purrs and purrs.   I will send some pictures soon but I wanted you to know that he is just perfect." ~ Katherine

CHEETAHSDEN CHLOE

Exoticrose Loverboy x Cheetahsden Maya Shanti

Cheetahsden Chloe was chosen by Greg and Tara from Plano, Texas.  
A note from Isabella and Chloe's family:  

"We rescued two Bengals and fell in love with them. After losing one to feline HCM, we decided to adopt two more. It was comforting to know that Kelli was already screening her cats for HCM. After visiting several local catteries, we were fortunate to come across Kelli and Cheetahsden Bengals. After one visit, we immediately decided to adopt two more Bengals from Kelli. We made almost weekly visits to her house and visited with several kittens. Visiting Kelli was a completely different experience compared to the other catteries. It is apparent that her cats and kittens were part of her family. The cat families had dedicated living quarters with several roaming around playing in the house. We have enjoyed Chloe and Isabella for 7 years. When it comes time for a new kitten or kittens, she is the only place we would go and I hope she still has her cattery." ~ Greg and Tara

CHEETAHSDEN PRINCE GATOR

Bahiya Painted Jungle of Lonestar x Cheetahsden Head in the Clouds 

Cheetahsden Gator was chosen by Chad, Sarah and Timothy from Belton, Texas.  
A note from Gator's family:  

"We adopted Prince Gator in October of 2018 from Kelli Faram of Cheetahsden Bengals. We are so grateful to have found her and her wonderful cattery! Her adoption process is thorough, well structured and especially reassuring for first time Bengal owners. She provides a wealth of information and education along the way so that when you take your sweet kitten home you are off to a great start. We really enjoyed getting to visit him as he was growing in those first few months at the cattery. Gator is so much fun! He is loving, spirited, spunky and sweet. He is energetic and healthy. His is also a strikingly beautiful kitten which is the first thing people comment on when they meet him. He is a wonderful addition to our family! We know that all the love and attention he received at the cattery is a big part of the reason he is so sweet. You will not regret working with Kelli. Her kitten babies are the absolute best! " ~ Chad, Sarah and Timothy

CHEETAHSDEN FANLETTAH

Exoticrose Roshan x Cheetahsden Chainlettah

 

 

Fanlettah was chosen by Sabrina and Scotty from San Antonio, Texas. 

A note from Fanlettah's family: 

 

"I first learned of Bengals when I discovered my neighbors owned one.  As a life-long cat owner it was immediately love at first sight! I knew I wanted a Bengal but I was hoping the fever would subside as we have 3 other cats. Fast forward, the fever never subsided and I knew I had to add to our family. Given the age of my existing kitties and current lifestyle we felt an adult cat would be better suited to our household.

 

I found Kelli Faram and Cheetahsden Bengals. After reviewing her website she had two adult cats that were going to be retired. After reading the bio information, I felt Fanlettah would be a great fit for our home.  One thing I love about Kelli is she places the welfare of her cats above everything else. She screens potential owners carefully to ensure that it’s a great fit for both.  Given Fanlettah’s personality and behaviors she was concerned about placing her into a home with resident cats. I knew Fanlettah would be a great fit for us and I knew I could successfully integrate her into our house with love, time, and patience. I used to foster cats that were placed for adoption so I’m very experienced at integration. A lot of people think you just put cats together and live in harmony. That’s not how it happens.  It took some convincing but after several conversations Kelli felt comfortable enough to go ahead with the adoption with the caveat that if for any reason it didn’t work Fanlettah would be returned.

 

Prior to pickup, Kelli provided lots of information regarding personality traits, dietary needs, and helpful articles on integrating kitty into her new home.  I had a very good idea of what to expect. Finally THE DAY arrived!! I traveled to Arlington to personally pick up Fanlettah. It was refreshing to see that Kelli raises her Bengals in a family home where they loved, pampered, and spoiled. It’s not a cattery where the animals are kept in cages and not socialized. Kelli went over general information and at adoption time provided all veterinary records. It’s evident that her cats are extremely well cared for.

 

Kelli and I maintained regular contact to ensure that Fanlettah’s transition was going smoothly. It took time but Fanlettah accepted her new siblings and they accepted her.  She has become such a treasured member of our family. She is beyond spoiled and loved to pieces. I cannot imagine life without her!

 

If you are considering adopting a Bengal, I highly recommend Kelli Faram and Cheetahsden Bengals. Your Bengal will be happy, well-adjusted, loved, and pampered!" ~ Sabrina and Scotty

CHEETAHSDEN SIMONE NOZOMI

Exoticrose Loverboy x Cheetahsden Rockymountain Skye 

Simone was chosen by Judy from Roseburg, Oregon. 

 

A note from Simone's family: 

 

"Of all the kittens I looked at, I couldn't be happier with my choice.  Simone is a beautiful, silly, high class sweetie. You never know about blood lines and the health of a kitten, once again Cheetahsden was not a disappointment. She is beyond beautiful and very healthy. I know of a local example of a Bengal Breeder that has had problems with kittens having serious health problems. I can't imagine the heartbreak of purchasing a sick kitten. All of my contact with Cheetahsden and Kelli have been only positive, the experience was pleasant and as I said before I couldn't be happier. I love my little Simone and certainly wouldn't trade her for anything. I would like to say "Thanks again" to Kelli and Cheetahsden."  ~ Judy G.

CHEETAHSDEN BEAU

LA IW SGC Leopardcats Tao Tao x Exoticrose Island Girl

 

 

Cheetahsden Beau was adopted by Shaina and her family from Lubbock, Texas. 

A note from Beau's family: 

"Oh, my beautiful, Beau, you are the sunshine of my days. After adopting my incredible Bing, I worked with Kelli once again to bring home my sweet sweet Beau, aka, “Baby Bing”. This process was a little more complicated than my first experience, only because I did choose another kitten first. Kelli, who is amazing, was so kind and understanding as my confusion on what kitten I wanted, put a burden on her, as she already made it known that my first choice was not available to potential families looking to adopt. I was enamored by a couple of her studs, which made my decision more difficult, and she helped me through it the entire time. In the end, I did bring my sidekick, my shadow, my beloved “Baby Bing” home. He has stayed so close to me since day one. He sleeps right by me, and sometimes I must contort my body to keep him satisfied. In fact, he knows bedtime, and he enforces it.  He is an extremely vocal cat, as well as tremendously loving. His coat is the most desirable, as it is so luxurious, glittery, soft, and silky to the touch. This cat makes getting up in the morning more bearable. He, along with his brother, Bing, are ready to go and be fed at the same time every day. Kelli, thank you, thank you for letting me come meet and bring these babies into my life. I adore you and them!" ~ Shaina

CHEETAHSDEN CORKY

Medoz Winter Knight of Kingsmark x Sehnsational Fanlettah

 

Cheetahsden Corky was adopted by Jim and Alison from Corona, California.

A note from Corky's family: 

 

"Today is four years since we brought Corky home from Cheetahsden. We celebrate his birthday and other important milestones, like today, because he is an important part of our family. Unlike other cat breeds, Corky has an in-your-face interface. We know that he loves us, and he wants to be in on everything that happens around the house. Somehow he knows when we don’t feel well, and he tries to comfort us. When he visits the Vet, Corky is a mama’s boy and hides his face against his mommy. We expect Corky to live a long, healthy life with many years to come because he is an emotionally-healthy cat without genetic defects.  Kelli is directly responsible for Corky’s current wellbeing. She is an exceptional breeder because she understands the necessity of genetic diversity, and through her expertise routinely raises stunningly-beautiful cats that are as healthy as they are gorgeous. Kelli also seems to be an expert on cat behavior and we lean on her expertise with questions from time-to-time. After bringing him home, we continued Corky’s liter box routine, feeding, and favorite play-time toys and antics. We trust Kelli and would choose her again and again." ~ Jim and Alison

CHEETAHSDEN LAVA

Cheetahsden Oisin x Exoticrose Madagascar

Cheetahsden Lava has been adopted by Jamie and Nick from Portland, Oregon.

A note from Lava's family: 

 

"After getting married and purchasing our first home, we could not wait to welcome our first addition to our new family .  Our work schedules did not work for adding a dog, so we researched cat breeds and stumbled across Bengal cats.  We loved the description and characteristics and decided that a Bengal kitten was a great match for us.  We searched the area for Bengal breeders, but didn't really connect with anyone in our area, so expanded our search across the country.  That is how we found Kelli at Cheetahsden Bengals.  As soon as we talked to Kelli, we could tell she loved her cats and had a lot of experience.  We were surprised at the lengthy screening process, but we know this is because she truly cares for each kitten and wants a successful placement.  We got on her waiting list and before we knew it, we received an email about available kittens.  We flew half-way across the country to meet our new baby. We were welcomed by the sweetest person and the most beautiful cats you could imagine. Although we could not visit often, while Lava was growing up, Kelli took the extra time to update pictures and milestones and information. Lava, literally, walked right into our home the most confident and friendliest kitten imaginable.  Everyone that visits comments on how sweet our cat is and we believe it is because he was raised in a loving environment.  We have kept close contact with Kelli and we could not be happier with our choice of breeder.  I highly recommend Kelli and Cheetahsden, if you are interested in making a Bengal part of your family." ~ Nick and Jamie

CHEETAHSDEN ICEY

CH. Epsilon Razor x Cheetahsden I'm So Catkins "Monkey"

Cheetahsden Icey was adopted by Val and Celia from Fredericksburg, Texas.

A note from Icey and Lucky's family: 

"My Cheetahsden Bengals are AWESOME!!  I got my first Bengal in 2012. In June 2015, I began my search for another Bengal from a breeder in Texas to add to my family. I contacted Kelli Faram of Cheetahsden Bengals. She answered promptly. I filled out her questionnaire. I specifically wanted an SLP spotted male. And the wait began. Finally! On  March 17, 2016,(St. Patrick's Day!) she let me know immediately I'm So Catkins' Monkey' had a litter of 3 kittens. Two of the kittens were SLP, one male and one female. Within a day she let me know the male would be a marble and the girl spotted. All I could see was two white kittens! I decided the take the girl and Irish Cream became mine. Kelli posts weekly photos of her kittens. As I watched Lucky Charms' marble coloring develop, it did not take long and Lucky became mine too!! Kelli sent emails, pictures, videos, everything I needed to watch my babies grow( I am 4 hours from her.) My husband and I  went to visit them in April. We stayed almost two hours playing with Icey and Lucky. Kelli answered any questions we had. She is so well educated on Bengals. She has been a wonderful breeder to deal with! I have had my kittens home with us for almost a month now. Both have wonderful dispositions and charming personalities. They are a whirlwind of activity and are so funny to watch!  They crawl into ours laps and go to sleep when they get tired! Their pelts are super soft and silky. When I am ready for my next Bengal, Kelli is definitely the breeder I will use.  You cannot go wrong with her." ~ Val and Celia

CHEETAHSDEN CHLOE

I'm serious! If you are looking for the best Bengal breeder, look no further.  My experience has been fantastic and my cats are so awesome. Bengals are addicting.

Cheetahsden Mya has now joined the home of Steve and Nancy from North Richland Hills, Texas.

A note from Mya's family:  

"In April of 2010, we acquired our lovely girl Mya. Kelli was great to work with as we were able to make a couple of trips before the actual pickup date to visit and play with Mya in her various stages of growth. We always felt welcome. Kelli answered all of our questions and had full explanations for any concerns we had. I don't think you could find a better breeder if you are looking for a Bengal. She is the best. Mya is now 7 and doing great. She did have her teeth cleaned last week and one had to be pulled, otherwise no health problems. We have 2 other cats, Max (now 21) and Marty (7) - a blue Abyssinian who allow us to share the house as their servants." Steve & Nancy

"Rajah is a great little kitty.... or I should say big kitty.  He follows us around everywhere.  He gets along well with all our dogs, but his best doggy friend is oddly our biggest dog.  The 70 pound collie and him have become great friends... rubbing noses, and Rajah rubs around and between his legs.  He does have quite the desire to jump up on the dinner table...a lot, but we don't mind.  He hasn't been scratching things at all.  I'd say he's been a great little guy.  Very playful... and if he's not napping hard, then he's playing hard.  My son loves him too.  Thanks for such a great addition to our domesticated zoo.  We are blessed to have him!" ~ Clay  

CHEETAHSDEN SAM

Exoticrose Pinball Wizard x Cheetahsden Catkins 

Sam was adopted by Rachelle and David from Kansas City, Missouri, along with Cheetahsden Jack. 

A note from Sam's Family:

"We admired and looked at kittens online at Kelli's Cheetahsden Bengals. They are such beautiful, exotic cats. Kelli takes back any cats from her cattery, should something occur. She seeks new loving families & homes for them. So in the end, we adopted adult brother Bengals, Sam & Jack. 

We had lost our two beloved 21 year old cats, 8 months previously (also brothers named Sam & Jack). We were terribly sad for some time. Kelli began posting Bengal Jack & Sam's photos and story, on Facebook. We couldn't believe they were brothers, sharing the same names as our beloved cats that had passed. We felt compelled - they were meant to be part of our family. 

Kelli spent time & money updating their health care through a vet. She then drove Sam & Jack from Texas to Kansas, where we picked them up, driving onto to their forever home in Missouri. They truly are handsome and interesting cats. 

 

Sam unpacked his bags in one day & immediately began instructing us on his daily needs. We quickly learned what he was communicating with his various & unusual vocalizations. Once we (human family members) understood his desires, it appeared that we could stay in his new home with him. He is so smart, alert and curious. He pretends to not want any physical attention or admiration, but often when you are alone he'll snuggle up on your lap or sleep on your bed.

Jack is gorgeous and reminds us of Puss in Boots (from the movie Shrek) with his large green eyes and round face. However his personality is the sweetest of any cat we've known. He struggled at first to the stresses of adjusting to a new family & home. I called & emailed Kelli several times as we explored ways to help him. Kelli was so quick to respond & helpful with great recommendations. Following Kelli's ideas, Jack has found a whole new level of contentment in his daily life. His loving nature has touched our hearts.

We've spent hours snickering, laughing, and in awe of our new beloved Sam & Jack. Thank you, Kelli - our family is complete once again!

CHEETAHSDEN DANGER

Bahiya Painted Ripples x Sehnsational Fanlettah

 

 

Cheetahsden Danger was adopted by Serey from San Diego, California.

A note from Danger's family:

"He fetches, walks on a leash, comes when I call (sometimes).  He waits in the room when I shower and greets me when I come home.  He loves people and brings joy to everyone who meets him. He even has followers on Instagram! He's kind of a big deal in San Diego. 

 

He's the smartest, most loving, most gentle, most playful cat ever. He also kills spiders, so he's lethal too. Best of all, he's super soft and cuddly. I love to give him huggies, I think he likes them too. It's like hugging a miniature tiger!

 

Thank you Kelli for my buddy!" ~ Serey
