The perfect blend of a domesticated companion and uniquely exotic animal

About Us

Welcome to the beautiful, wild and heartwarming adventures of our Bengal cats here at Wild at Heart Bengals. We are a small, TICA registered in-home cattery in San Diego California.

Our hand raised and fully socialized Bengals embody the best in their breed. Our goal is to achieve healthy cats with a wild look that harkens back to their close ancestors, the Asian Leopard Cat. We focus on large, full rosettes, rounded almond-shaped eyes set on a bias, small rounded ears, puffy whisker pads, and strong, muscular bodies, as well as a smart and curious, yet loving personality.

Here at Wild at Heart Bengals, we treat our cats as family members, and socialize them with other cats, dogs, children, and normal household comings and goings on a daily basis. We do not believe in cages EVER, and always have the best interest of our animals at heart. We work with our cats to ensure that they are not only well adjusted, but are trained in those desired cat habits such as litter box use, scratching posts, etc.

Our cats undergo a complete health screening, including DNA, viral, bacterial, PRA, and PK-def testing.

With true wild blood, these mini leopards are the perfect blend of a domesticated companion and a uniquely exotic animal.

We would love for you to join us on our fun (and, let's face it, crazy) journey from the beginning. You can find us on Instagram @wildatheartbengals . We look forward to sharing all of the beautiful, wild, and heartwarming Bengal adventures to come!
