Our first retiree---Stonehenge Firenze of PrinceRoyalDetails About Our Retirees


    A retired breeder cat is just about the best thing around. For one thing, they are beautiful! Most are show quality.


    1. You don't have to put up with obnoxious kitten-like behavior and you don't have to do basic training with them, as you might with a kitten. (However, keep in mind that bengals continue to be very active cats throughout their entire life.)

    2. On the other hand, you know the cat is fairly young---we generally retire our breeders at between two and five years of age.

    3. You know their health history.

    4. You know that they have an established personality, and you know what that is (this is a big help in placing a retiree in a home where here or she will be happiest, and in ensuring that the new owner will be happy with the cat).

    5. You know the cat has received exceptional medical care during its entire life. Any breeding cat at PrinceRoyal will have had a minimum of $100 of medical care (vaccinations, regular health examinations and tests, etc.) every year.

    6. You know how big your cat is going to get (be).

    7. You know the cat has been microchipped and spayed/neutered so you don't have to worry about those things.

    On top of all that, retirees are relatively inexpensive. But on the other hand, we have an extremely rigorous screening program for placing retirees. We are very picky about where our kittens go, but we are even pickier about where our retirees go. They have done their part to help the breed, and they have been our pets as much as they have been breeders. We love them---enough to let them go when the time comes to a home where they will be the worshipped and adored King or Queen forever.


    As noted above, we are EXTREMELY selective in where we place a retiree.

    • We will NOT place a retiree with a first-time or relatively inexperienced cat owner.

    • We may want to speak with your veterinarian before placing a retiree with you.

    • We prefer to place retirees with cat owners who have had previous experience in dealing with and caring for geriatric cats. (Our retired cats are young when they arrive, but we expect them to get older!)

    • We try to exactly match the individual retiree to the new home (both environment and people).

    • We look for "Forever Homes"---an environment in which the cat will be cherished and given exceptional care for the rest of its life, even if it should get sick or when it becomes old. A retiree will (we hope) be with you for another 10 to 15 years.

    Our Retiree Contract

    Our contract is designed to do three things:

    1. Protect the cat thoughout its lifetime.

    2. Establish the terms under which you are buying the cat.

    3. Establish the terms under which we are selling you the cat.

    We have put the basic provisions of the Retiree Contract online so you can get the gist of it. Please read it.
