Recommended Bengal Products
Here's some products we use for our Bengal cats and really enjoy (or they really enjoy). I love love love getting a deal on anything I buy so I will shop around for hours sometimes days looking for the best price. Take a look at the provided links before you go shopping for you kitty. I also highly recommend looking on eBay and Amazon before going to a Pet Store. The prices have just gotten ridiculous at certain stores! I mean $7.99 for one cat toy, are you kidding me?!? And you would spend $250 or more for a 72" cat tree at the pet store. Amazon has all sizes for the best prices with free shipping!
Bengals really love to be able to perch somewhere up high. A cat tree for a bengal is a must. They will really love you for it. The ones at the pet stores are sooooo over priced. Here are some of the best priced ones on Amazon with free shipping. In leopard pattern of course! Most of these also have solid color options that are a little cheaper.

City Kitty Cat Potty Training
Toilet train you Bengal!!! This really works! I've had many of my clients use this kit to potty train their Bengals. Only $29 and so worth never scooping or buying expensive cat litter. Find it here on Amazon.
PetSafe Ssscat Cat Spray Deterrent
This is one of the best cat products I have ever bought! Not only is it good for cats, but you can use it to scare the crap out of your kids! It took ONE spray from this and Katie never jumped on my counter again. Amazing... SSSCat Cat Deterrent is $29.95 on Amazon. You will get 80-100 sprays out of one can and the refills are here for $7.45.
These are SO great! Keeps kitty out of trouble!
Dry Cat Food
We feed our kitties a wonderful brand of food called Diamond Naturals Active Cat which is made in the USA. Bengals MUST have high protein food! We order ours from Amazon or $25.99 a bag which is the exact same price it is at the pet stores. Please be sure to have at least one bag of this food to start your new kitten on and you can switch later if you choose to.
In addition to dry cat food our babies are also fed canned food and organic chicken.
Wet Cat Food
We also give our kitties grain free wet food along with their dry food and chicken. We use Holistic Select Natural Canned Grain Free Cat Food. It comes in a variety of flavors and its a really good quality food with added prebiotics. We always buy the 12 pack of 13oz cans from Amazon because it's the best deal and it works out to the food costing $0.19 cents an ounce. If you get the 5.5oz of 24 you'll pay $0.28 cents and ounce, and if you get the 3oz pack of 24 you'll pay $0.41 an ounce. It's much better to just get the large 13oz cans for $29.86.
I compared a lot of the best brands of wet food to see who had the best prices and Holistic Select was definitely one of the best. The only two that I found that were cheaper and still grain free were Canidae which was $0.16 cents an ounce and Natural Balance which was $0.15 cents an ounce.
Here's the one we use that's $0.24 cents an ounce. Best quality & value.
Here's two more that are good quality and great value. Purina $0.33 cents an ounce and Wellness $0.41 cents an ounce.
Toys Toys Toys!!!
Bengal cats love to play with toys! The more the better! We like to rotate what toys we have out for them to keep it interesting. We have tested out so many different types and brands. Here's some of our favorite ones.
SmartyKat FishFlop Crinkle Catnip Toy. Bengals LOVE these cat nip infused crinkle fish! The size, shape, and texture must be just ideal to them because I find that all my fetching bengals started fetching these toys first. Some of them will only fetch these fish. I get mine from Amazon for $3.
Interactive Cat Toys
Interactive cat toys are wonderful for learning and keeping your cat busy. They are especially good if your cat will be alone while you're at work. Here's some really great choices.
For interactive toys that swing a feather or teaser around the round rolling style bases are best. If you get one with a flat base your bengal will knock it over no matter how heavy the base is.
These interactive puzzle toys for cats are amazing. Bengals are very smart cats. You kitty will love the challenge of these toys and they will keep them busy for hours.
Here's a few more of our cats favorite interactive toys. Your kitty will have fun hunting the mice or chasing the balls.
Scratch posts are a must for new kittens. They need to have a place to sharpen their claws. The ones our cats like best are the ones made of sisal. It's great to get a few extra small ones (like the first one below for $5.97) and hang them from doorknobs or using command hooks. That way no matter what room your kitty is in they have a special spot to scratch. TIP: spray catnip spray on the scratchers to attract you cat to them and lessen the chance of them scratching furniture.
Your cat will absolutely LOVE any of these special nap spots. Bengals love to be up high and these are the perfect wall or window mounted spots just for them.
This one is a set of 3 and it's the best priced one I've ever seen. It includes a hide out, hammock nap spot, and step. We have this for our cats.
Ultimate window seat for kitty! Heavy duty suction cups so you won't have to put any holes in your wall.
Hide Outs & Beds
Cats love to curl up in a cozy spot and have a nap. They also love to ambush friends, toys, and people! Here's some of our favorite beds and hide outs for Bengals.
One of my clients told me about this and how much her bengal loved it. I ordered one and wow! They will play in this for hours!
ID Tags and Walking Harnesses
For cats you want an ID tag no bigger than 1 inch in diameter. They really don't like anything too big swinging from their neck. You can order a customized one with all your info on it for your baby so you know if they get out they will find their way back to you. Here's some nice options that are 1 inch or a little less and this size will be perfect for kittens or adults.
If you want to take your kitty out exploring the safest way to do it is on a walking harness. Bengals learn to walk on a leash just like a dog would. (a little faster in my opinion)
Bengal love love love very fresh water. If you want to splurge you can get your bengal a water fountain to drink from. The other benefit is that drinking fountains filter the water. Our bengals only have filtered water at our house. I wouldn't let my children drink tap water and I'm not going to let my cat babies drink it either. Here's some of our favorite cat fountains. TIP: Some bengals will drink from the toilet if their water isn't fresh enough. Remember to not use chemicals in the toilet or keep the lid shut.
For those of you wanting to know what spray I used that made your kitten smell so good when you took them home, here ya go! :)
Whether it's a cat or a dog if an accident happens you will want to use a highly effective enzymatic cleaning product. These work best but you want to find one that has "dormant" bacteria. These dormant bacteria will actually come alive and go to work by eating away at the urine or feces which is causing the smell. If you don't make sure you get a product that has dormant bacteria then the longer the bottle sits there the more ineffective it becomes because the bacteria in the bottle are slowly dying off. I use Bubba's Rowdy Friends and it's the best one I've found. There are two sizes but you get so much more product for your money if you get the gallon size. Plus it will last you a really long time and you can use it on any type of stains. Make sure to follow instructions for old stains.
Cool Stuff for Pet Parents
Animal Hearted has shirts, apparel, and gifts for animal lovers. They have some of the funniest cat and dog shirts I've ever seen! Every time I look there's new ones too. I've already ordered a few for myself and one for my sister. The company is very generous and 25% of the proceeds goes to helping dogs, cats, and other animals. You can also have your pets picture put right on a shirt! I'll likely be wearing one of their shirts when you pick up your kitty. :)
Amazon affiliate links are used on this page. I only recommend products that I have used myself and I know are good quality. If you use the link provided I will make a very small commission at no extra cost to you. There are MANY links throughout this website that are not affiliate links but I really love the products. For example the food I use **(was using until they changed the amount of protein in it)** and tell all my customers to buy from Chewy which has no tax and free delivery. I've been asked by multiple companies to become a rep for their food and recommend it to all my customers. In doing so I would make a large commission on every bag sold but I will *never* recommend a more expensive food to anyone when I know that they can get the same quality and higher protein using Earthborn Holistic. Please show your support and use the affiliate links provided if you decide to purchase any of the products recommended and I hope I saved you lots of money on the items you needed for your new kitten.
