Facts about Kala

  • Breed: Bengal
  • Color: Spotted Tabby/Leopard Spotted
  • Age: Young
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Short
Kala : Born ~ 2013, Female, Brown Spotted Bengal

Here’s a lovely little girl. Kala is fairly small bodied as most Bengal females are. However, her small body is solid, made of pure steel. It is a delight to watch her lithe athleticism. Look at the stretch in her back in the photo below. Her green eyes are striking. She is beautiful to watch.

I only know a bit of her history and it is a little turbulent as she bounced around. I know she has been in Reno. And I know she has been in Tracey where she lived with her daughter. What I heard is that in that home she was not getting along with her daughter so she was taken to the shelter which is where we found her. Once kittens are weaned Mother Nature’s hormones order the moms to clear the decks for the next litter. The once good, loving mothers hiss at their kittens and are very unfriendly to them. “Go away”. I expect that was the story here. This synopsis above may be only part of Kala’s history but it is enough to tell me she needs some stability and loving continuity in her home. Like so many kitties I foster she has had a hard beginning. She deserves better. This girl has a very sweet heart in her alpha cat body.

Kala has lovely deep green eyes which go beautifully with the rich brown colors of her fur. She enjoys admiration and loves to be petted. Like most Bengals she is a busy girl which means she is pretty much always moving if she is not asleep. She has been cooped up for a while in the shelter and her foster home and will be so glad to have a house to watch over. And race through. She is curious, mischievous, and full of fun.

(September update: Kala has settled well into her foster home and now shows us what a really affectionate girl she is. She loves petting and attention and feathers and all manner of fun. She is so smart she will figure out your games. She would love a climbing tree in her home since she loves to be up high.)

As a Bengal she expects you to respect her opinions. She needs an experienced Bengal adopter who knows the breed and will not only exercise her by waving feathers and such but also will read her body language and know when to stop stimulating her. Having a Bengal like Kala is a life style choice. She is not a sleep-on-the-sofa Persian cat. You must want a real part of your life to revolve around her natural needs as a Bengal. She is highly intelligent and you must want to keep up with her. She needs play time, environment enrichment and a home she cannot get out of.

This active relationship is what experienced Bengal adopters are looking for. Kala would prefer to be an only cat. I have no knowledge of how she would be with dogs though I expect she would be in charge. I would not suggest she go to a home with young children. She needs responsible, mature human companions. She will be a highly fascinating and entertaining housemate.

Kala eats wet and dry food and is litterbox perfect.

Kala’s foster mom is Harriet in Santa Cruz.

About Purebreds Plus Cat Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Purebreds Plus Cat Rescue is dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation, and rehoming of purebred and other exceptional cats.

Our mission is to educate pet owners, breeders, and shelters about our breeds, and to place our cats with Forever Families who will give them the proper care and love they deserve. We carefully match cats with their Forever Families by evaluating each cat's personality, temperament, and special needs. Then we determine the best fit for both the cat and the new family. Please note that we do NOT ship cats.

Our adoption fee is $175 unless otherwise noted. This fee allows us to provide excellent vet care for the cats that really need it. The healthy kitties make it possible for the sick ones to be saved.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Our cats are neutered or spayed, vaccinated and FELV/FIV negative. We are not a shelter. All of our cats are fostered in private homes. We ask that anyone wanting to meet one of our cats first fill out our online application. These cats are treated like members of our family, and we want to ensure that you will do the same.

When you adopt from Purebreds Plus Cat Rescue, you are saving TWO lives - the cat you adopt and the cat who gets to take its place in Rescue!

Our Adoption Process...

READY TO ADOPT?
First, call the name of the foster mother if you are interested in an individual cat. Once you've chatted, she will ask you to fill out our easy online application. Just "Click to submit"! Next, one of our wonderful volunteers will quickly contact your veterinary and personal references. Then they will give you a call to chat and answer any questions or concerns you may have about the adoption process. Once approved we will help you set up a time to come and meet the kitty or kitties you want. If it's a good match all around you will be asked to sign a contract and pay the adoption fee and you can take the kitty home that very day.

Our adoption fee is $175. That includes the kitty, spayed/neutered, up to date on vaccines, tested for FIV/FELV.

We do not ship pets, however, you are welcome to put in an application and once approved make plans to come out and meet the kitty and fly it back with you.
