Supernova are Bengal cat breeders based in Clackmannanshire, Scotland and we occasionally have Bengal kittens for sale to permanent loving homes.
HOW MUCH FOR A KITTEN?
Let me say a few words to you, yes to you, the person writing an email or a text message, just to ask for the price.
The person who calls and after hearing a price surprisingly says: "I can buy a cheaper kitten elsewhere". I speak to you too; the person who doesn't care about papers because I want "just a pet".
No cat is “just a pet”.
Behind every purebred kitten there is a BREEDER.
I use capital letters to differentiate a breeder from a pet factory or mill.
A reputable breeder will not breed undocumented cats, which does not protect the integrity of the breed. Registration (papers) are lineage records that document the bloodline and enable one to investigate possible health problems in the lineage.
When you tell a breeder that you don't care about papers, you are really telling them that you care no less about the kitten's health, just the cheapest thing you can find!
When you buy a kitten from a reputable and high quality breeder, that breeder is responsible for the health of every kitten; this breeder is skipping the holidays, missing out on sleeping and most of their personal home space has been converted into space for their cats.
The truly passionate breeder who loves what they breed puts all of their heart and soul into it.
Not only with kittens that are sold, but also with every new parent who has a piece of their heart and is now a member of their extended family. Breeders worry about their babies after they leave and take them back without question.
A breeder will "get their hands dirty", often burdened with everything that comes with giving birth.
Because that's what life is about ... In the midst of birth and death is life. The wheel that keeps turning.
A good breeder carries out tests, x-rays, analyzes, emergency operations, vaccinations, litter, family trees, deworming and microchips for their kittens and has them assessed by specialists.
Last but not least, a breeder chooses the family lucky enough to have one of their kittens.
Yes, you read that right.
A real breeder chooses who to sell to because she/he doesn't make any money selling it.
There is no compensation that can offset the investments made by a breeder.
Hence, they need to be sure that they fit properly.
Often saying no more than yes ... A good breeder has different criteria for those who want to continue their bloodline.
Why? Since breeding is not a responsibility to ever be taken lightly, it is a lifestyle choice reserved ONLY for the devoted few who are willing to sacrifice.
Because a cat is never "just a pet" it is the breeder's legacy, a little boy's best friend, a protector for little girls, therapy for the elderly, a family member, someone's whole world !!!

I think its 2 way too, a good breeder should ask questions and I would be alarmed if they didnt it proves they care. People were amazed what Lylas breeder asked me but I didnt mind I even had to get my other cats tested for something cant remember what ? Before they agreed us having her
So true. A cat is not an accessory to have and no pet is 'just a pet' they are family members.
Well said, sadlly the exact same in the dog world. Some people just don't have the first clue and the price is all they care about.
Well said. The initial price for a kitten is spread out over a lifetime, and this spread makes price differences negligible. It's better to purchase a kitten from a breeder who cares about sturdy bloodlines, and the health of the kitten during its lifetime, and is passionate about the future of the breed. The "cheap" alternative is some individual churning out kittens from an exhausted mother with little respect for future health of the kitten, the poor mother cat or the breed in general.
The price isn't even a consideration when bringing a new family member into our home. The joy and love we get from our babies is priceless. Knowing they've been raised with love and care in their first weeks is all that matters. xx
Supernova babies are priceless anyway so there’s no point asking how much, just how many can I have! 😆🥰
So true, I can’t remember what I paid for Zeke but I’ve had him for 11 years and he brings me enormous joy every day, so it’s actually incredible value for money if that’s all people are concerned about... 😂
So true. I once had the answer... i can get one for 2-300 euro. So I said, why are you then asking me? Go ahead and be quick, you wont find any cheaper. 🤣
Heather Field has written a lovely poem, Ode to a breeder, that I always give to my kitten buyers 💕
True! For as cat is a member of family, we are drinking coffe together and talking :-D

So very true x
So true your babies are priceless and raised with care and love xx
I fell in love with Arka's aunt at Cat Show in EK end of 2007. It was the purrsonality of Bengals that intrigued me as to me animals are part of my family. Yes, price was a bit important but I saved up and got first if all 2 lively kittens from Linda and then a couple of years later, Norman. I only say price was a bit important as I was in a limited income,but the bond my 3 bonkers Bengals and I share us priceless.vSo I say a huge thank you to you Linda for allowing me the privilege of sharing my space with my 3. Love them to the moon and back💕😻🐾

Unexpectedly we have a lovely seal lynx marble female looking for a loving family home.
Our wee girl was due to go to her new family on Saturday; unfortunately our customer has had a family emergency which won't resolve anytime soon. Parents are RW SGC Southlynn Ripple in Reality X Supernova Daenerys. Both can be seen on our website.
