    Hi :)
    Might be helpful if you state the reason for rehoming and if they are up to date with vaccinations. Do they get on with other cats or do they need to the only cats in the household?

    They're beautiful, have you spoken to their breeder to see if they would take them back? I know with my Ragdoll I signed a contract so that she would go back to the breeder if I couldn't keep her at any point.

    Have you contacted any of the various Bengal rescues? Look on the GCCF website for the breed club or clubs.

    Your breeder may be able to recommend a home for them though. Often, we have large waiting lists of people wanting cats, so it's worth contacting them. You also signed a contract to say you would, I'm guessing.

    Are you rehoming the dog as well?

    I am wondering how you have time for a dog, but not two cats, which actually need less looking after than a dog, seeing as you dont need to actually walk them etc.

    If you signed a contract with a registered breeder, you are obliged (morally, at least) to contact the breeder before rehoming them.

    All GCCF breeders would want first choice on having their cats back if they needed to be rehomed.

    Have you re-read the contract you signed with your breeder and at least let them know of your intentions?

    Blimey that sounds terrible :sad:
    Did you reported this 'breeder' to the GCCF or RSPCA at the time? Those poor cats!

    No I thought about it but I just couldn't bring myself to do it. There were litters of kittens with mom in cat carriers so I really don't think she will be too bothered about my two.
    Iam not going to turf them out on the street and if a home can't be found they will stay with me x

    Thank you for explaining - I hope you find them a lovely home.

    Have you contacted any rescues that could maybe help advertise them for you, while you keep them at home until a suitable home comes up?
