Elysian Bengals are priced based on many factors such as Breed Standard Confirmation, color and pattern as well as temperament/personality. Many of our babies are magic pumpkins and will change over time thus prices will reflect this until a deposit is put down. If you are curious as to what a kitten may look like, take a peek at some of our cats' own transformations
Kittens can have a deposit put on them no earlier than 5 weeks of age (unless part of our Premier Waiting List). At this time their listed price is locked in. a deposit will only be accepted after a kitten application is completed, approved. and a contract has been reviewed and signed. Deposits are non-refundable (unless determined otherwise by the breeder) and can be transferred to another kitten. If we feel a home is not right for a kitten we do reserve the right to cancel a deposit or sale at which time a full refund or a deposit transfer will be given. If the buyer cancels the deposit, it can only be transferred to another kitten.
Breeder reserves the right to keep a kitten for their program before offering them to the waiting list.
Deposits for pet kittens are $500 (depending on payment method service fees may be added)
Rehoming: Our kittens do not go to their new homes until 15-16 weeks of age. This is a set in stone policy. You can read about our Rehoming Policy here.

MAEVE X CAYDE
Epic Sea Creatures Litter Born: February 2, 2021
Available to go home May 25th
This litter is extraordinary! After 12 years of planning and careful breeding, Elysian Bengals has continued their mentor's outcross program for another 4 years. This is the last step in a carefully devised plan. Maeve and Cayde have produced kittens with 50% outcross genetics in the third generation. Typically you only see about 12%. These kittens also have COI (coefficient of inbreeding or how related cats are to each other. The average for the Bengal breed is 26%) of only 11% (the lower the % of the better!! They also have a high genetic diversity between 35-37% This is extraordinary and rarely if ever seen.
Please view our Outcross Program page for more detailed information about this part of our program
LEVIATHAN is a HANDSOME Black Silver Spotted tabby male. He is named after a mythical creature with the form of a sea serpent in Judaism.. This little guy had quite the start to life. He was the firstborn but only weighed 67 grams, gasping for air. He had to be supplemented for the first couple of days but is now nursing on his own and going strong alongside his brother. We have been waiting for a silver boy for many years now and to be blessed with two was shocking. As is standard for Maeve and Cayde babies, Leviathan would make the perfect emotional support animal. We love his dense body, broken tabby M and tight-knit coat and are so excited to watch this handsome sweet boy develop.

We have been waiting for a silver boy for many years from this pairing and to be blessed with two was shocking. As is standard for Maeve and Cayde babies, Cthuhlu would make the perfect emotional support animal. We already love his ark markings and are so excited to watch this handsome sweet boy develop.
