We breed friendly, beautiful and top quality dark rosette and red-gold colour Bengal kittens with fabulous contrast. We usually have kittens available year round. From time to time we also have snow kittens. Please see the 'Previous Kittens' page for photos.
All our brown rosette kittens are $950.
Snow kittens are $1200.
Kittens are due at the end of August and the first week of September.
We just love, love, love Bengals because each one is a unique living work of art. We love being bedazzled every day by all the different colours and patterns. And those eyes!
Wild Mariner are breeding top quality Bengals as pets, for show and for breeding. We are open to send kittens and breeding quality cats overseas to an approved home.
We breed Bengals because we have a passion to breed Bengals of excellent type according to NZ and International Bengal Standards. We are registered breeders with both NZ Cat Fancy and Catz Inc.
Our aim is to produce big top quality Bengals with tricoloured rosettes the same as rosetted ALCs. We are also breeding to bring dark red and deep gold to our Bengals.
There is already heaps of easily accessed information about the Bengal Leopard-Cat hybrid so we don't go into that here.
We don't have cell reception at home so the best way to get in touch is to email email@example.com or call 09 420 4198.

You may note that we have imported quite a few Tijah cats not only from the Tijah Cattery, but also from other Australian breeders. This is because the Tijah Cattery spends a fortune importing cats from the US, so it’s a great way for us to have those lines without the huge cost of importing them ourselves. A second big plus is that it avoids a traumatic quarantine period for cats coming into NZ. We also have Canadian and UK lines.
We currently have four studs and seven queens. We imported five of the adults and have bred the rest.

Wild Mariner Bengals Cattery is situated on a beautiful 8-acre native bush property in Makarau, just 25 minutes from Silverdale, about 10 minutes past Kaukapakapa village. Our Eastern boundary is a river with rapids!
A purpose built cattery with a 12m x 8m outdoor garden enclosure has three levels for them to play, with trees they can climb, and grass to eat. We have big trellis climbing frames as well and they really love it there.
We are very particular about where our precious babies go.
Should you want to get a kitten from us, please don't be offended if we ask a lot of questions about what kind of home you can provide.
Wildmariner kittens come with a 4-generation certified registered pedigree & kittens are registered in your name.
All youngsters and adults are vaccinated against all the common dangerous ailments.
They are all worm and flea-free.
They each have their own Veterinary health and vaccination record.
Microchipping can be done at the time of desexing for an additional fee.
Inspection and viewing is welcomed. Please be aware that you will be required to remove your shoes at the door and use a hand sanitiser before handling unvaccinated kittens.
Our girls give birth inside and kittens are socialised inside so they are used to general house noise.
Bengals love to smooch and cuddle, even if usually on their own terms. In general they do not seem to like being picked up, but provided they have enough energy-releasing play most are then happy nestled in your lap or snuggled up beside you wherever you are. When not sleeping or playing they are likely to be trailing along behind you as you move around the house or garden.
Even though Bengals don't like being picked up, it's something they must learn to accept. If not, Vet trips would be a nightmare, so we get them used to it from a young age.
Please contact us any time! We look forward to hearing from you.
