Knock on wood....but nope, no negative effects.
We've been producing top quality kittens in every litter and have at least doubled our prices over the last 4 years and there has been no slow down in demand, in fact it has increased to the point to make it difficult for us to produce for the demand.
Weekly, we turn away potential clients. Of course some of them are looking for bargain basement prices, even though I clearly post our price for individual kittens on our site.
The Bengal, being one of the most popular breed cats, (if not number 1) in the world right now, does help our sales.
That being said, I'm certainly not a backyard breeder, and our kittens are not cheap, coming from the best of the best. Even so there still is plenty of business from the discriminating purebred pet client.
