Each and every Bengal stud cat that we have been able to show has obtained a title. If one of our current Bengal Stud Cats doesn't have a title it is because he has never been shown. We hope to get all our permanent stud cats titled as we wouldn't consider keeping one for breeding that isn't up to getting a title!
WE HAVE A SUPER SILVER ROSETTED POTENTIAL STUD MALE AVAILABLE, SEE FURTHER DOWN.

We would like to say a BIG THANKYOU to those followers and supporters of TINO who have wished him/us good luck for his forthcoming Adult shows....and have asked about his latest show results........ (Thanks Folks!)
TINO'S RESULTS (12th April 2009):
Tino was the baby of the group when competing against 23 other brown (some Titled) Bengal adults this weekend and also (some Titled) super silvers and snows. There was actually an average of around 50 adult Allbreed cats (TBC) that he competed against each time he Finaled.
He was just entering into the Adult section at 8 months of age at this show and even though he was the youngest of all the Bengals, he managed to attain the titles of CHAMPION and GRAND CHAMPION on Saturday. On Sunday he managed to gain enough Points and Finals to obtain the title of "DOUBLE GRAND CHAMPION" (WOW)!!
As TINO was competing against more mature cats (many with SUPREME GRAND CHAMPION titles)... we are absolutely over the moon that he could still hold his own against the more mature 'Top Dogs' at such a tender young age. We feel sure there must be more to come with our TINO, so do keep checking back for show results and details.

RESULTS 26th April 2009
Tino has returned from his second TICA adult show, where he was (again) the very youngest of them all (up to about 25 Bengals) at 8 months old. He won/was placed in 10/12 Rings and now has the title of TRIPLE GRAND CHAMPION! Well done Tino!
We would also like to say how proud we are of his 1/2 sister Anya, who also titled on the weekend (details on Queens page).

17th AUGUST 2009.
Tino had a great weekend at the UK TICA ALLIANCE show at Bracknell. He managed to get through to 5 Finals, and as always was so very well behaved and purred throughout the weekend!

Regional Winner, Supreme Grand Champion

Just take a look at this boy. He is one that we nearly sold...Oops! Thankfully he is still with us, and will be staying here now so that we can capture his wonderful profile and head/overall type in a kitten or two from him sometime in the not too distant future.
Do take a look at his MORE PHOTO'S where you can see his lovely straight profile and tiny rounded, well-set ears as well as his fabulous coat and pattern.

Tino has the best profile and smallest ears that we have ever seen on a Bengal. He has a straight profile with broad nose, a strong broad muzzle, puffy whisker-pads and a good deep chin. He reminds me so much of his great grand-sire 'Wurthy' (Stonehenge Wurthawate of Snopride/Jungle Jem)...and this boy also has a very strong chin and fabulous glitter on a soft, dense, golden pelt. Tino's background colour is pale golden and the rosettes are black outlined, with red centres but no overall rufousing. He has a very good tail, quite thick and even, with a rounded tip and clear patterning including rosettes. Tino is a large, chunky, deep bodied boy with very good bone and substance and is a very lively, confident and affectionate lad with a perfect temperament.

PREVIOUS SHOW RESULTS:
15th December 2008. Tino attended the SpoTICAt Cat Show in Coventry (13th/14th December 2008) and was overall BEST IN SHOW SHORTHAIR KITTEN. There was a very good entry of 21 Bengal kittens on Saturday and 19 on Sunday, and a grand total of 63 allbreed kittens in attendance!
We are thrilled to announce that Tino Finaled in 8 Rings on the weekend at the SpoTICAt show in Coventry and was BEST IN SHOW SHORTHAIR KITTEN. This was a great result as it was Tino's very first show and he is still very much a baby at just 4 months old and was one of the youngest kittens in the show. After just the one very successful TICA show (see above), Suntouched Santino stands in the TOP 10 BENGAL KITTENS IN NORTHERN EUROPE!

NEWS:

18th JANUARY Congratulations to Tino for achieving the following at the RagtimeTICA Cat Show on 17th / 18th January 2009 at Wood Green Animal Shelter, Godmanchester, Cambridge.

1st BEST OF BREED X 8 TIMES
9 X FINALS!

Tino went on to Final no less than 9 times out of a possible 12, and was overall BEST IN SHOW SHORTHAIR KITTEN, (for the second time).....so we were absolutely blown away! Well done Tino!

Tino had a very successful show this weekend (7th & 8th March 2009) at the OneForAll TICA Cat Show in Brigg, Lincolnshire, by winning 9/10 Rings (1st Colour, 1st Division, 1st Best of Breed every time) and went on to achieve 9 FINALS!

Many congratulations to our home bred stud cat Suntouched Santino (Tino) who has gained the prestigious title of REGIONAL WINNER (EN) in 2008/2009 TICA show year and finished in the following places:
1st. BEST BENGAL KITTEN in the UK
2nd BEST BENGAL KITTEN IN NORTHERN EUROPE.
6th. BEST BENGAL KITTEN IN THE WORLD!!

Tino has also returned home from the TICA Title-ist show (Milton Keynes) this weekend as a SUPREME GRAND CHAMPION...which was achieved in 3 straight shows just like his daddy Ozzy...and all at only just 9 months of age! We were wondering if he would be able to get the all-important BEST CAT in a Final on Sunday (having attained the title of Quadruple Grand Champion on Saturday) .....and he actually managed to get it 3 times as well as Finaling a total of 11 times out of the 12 rings!! Tino was a happy, purry and relaxed boy throughout the weekend and we are so very proud to be able to call him 'our own'. Tino was born here at Suntouched Bengals and we very much look forward to some super Tino-babies in 2010!


JUNE 2008.
Ozzy finished the TICA show year 2007/2008 as: 1st BEST BENGAL CAT IN THE UK!
3rd BEST BENGAL CAT IN N. EUROPE!!
11th BEST BENGAL CAT IN THE WORLD!
We have been asked many times if Ozzy has faded in colour....or gone dark......or lost contrast as he has matured? (which is quite common with some Bengals) Well here is your answer! Ozzy is pictured here, aged nearly 2 years old, and as you can see the answer is a definite 'NO'. He is still as clear coated now as he was 12 months ago!

UPDATE: 21ST SEPTEMBER 2008...please see Rolo's (Ozzy's son) Latest News below, where he attended the latest TickedTica TICA cat show in Maidstone, Kent. (Suntouched Carolos..AKA Rolo has gained the TICA title of Quadruple Grand Champion...at his fourth show, aged just 11 months!)

LATEST NEWS:
Ozzy's other son (by our Saba) attended the SpoTICAt show in Coventry on 13th+14th December 2008 and got 8 Finals, including 1 x 1st Best Kitten, 4 x 2nd, 2 x 3rd and 1 x 8th. We are extremely pleased for this little lad, who is just 4 months old and competing against 62 other kittens aged between 4 -8 months. TINO can be seen on our KITTENS page and also further down on this page.

GREAT NEWS! : Ozzy finished the TICA show year 2007/08 as Number 1 Bengal in the UK, No.3 in Northern Europe and No.11 Worldwide!! Ozzy is the only Bengal in the U.K. to get the REGIONAL WINNER title by finishing in the TOP 20 ALLBREED CATS in Northern Europe!!! This is a fantastic achievement as Ozzy missed the first 3 1/2 months of shows/points due to him still being a kitten!!

Check this boy out! Ozzy, who was conceived in Canada, is our super golden (brown) rosetted Bengal Stud boy. As you can see, Ozzy has a very clear, highly coloured and contrasted coat, with a pale golden background. Fabulous open rosettes with thick black outlines and rich orange/red centres. He has a super head with medium small ears set nicely on the side and a good broad muzzle with puffy whisker pads and a good chin. His eyes are big, round and nocturnal and his temperament is second to none.

Ozzy started his Showing career with a bang by him getting to Supreme Grand Champion in 3 straight shows by the age of 10 months.This was completed even with the fantastic competition at the shows, of both of his equally superb siblings (both now Supreme Grand Champions). Never has there been such 'HOT' competition amongst the Bengals! Ozzy's showing then went from strength to strength until the end of the TICA show year for 2007/2008 came, and Ozzy was Number 1 Bengal in the UK, no. 3 in Northern Europe and no. 11 worldwide!! He became a Regional Winner, following in the footsteps of his famous daddy Houdini and his grand-fathers Wurthy (Stonehenge Wurthawate of Snopride) and Playboy (Gogees Playboy of Jater), as well as the many other TICA Regional Winners in his pedigree. This was indeed an incredible feat for Ozzy, as he missed the first 3 1/2 months of Shows/Points in the TICA show year as he was still a kitten!!! Take a look on Ozzy's MORE PHOTO'S page or our AWARDS page for more details.

A little bit of history about this unusual F4 Bengal boy: Merlin (and his F3 mum Dolly) comes from an old, original and rare line of Bengals originating from the Asian Leopard Cat 'Tariq'. There was just 1 sole fertile female F1 produced from Tariq (ALC) and the queen Vonburchana Wild Tigress, who was herself an F3 of Bengal type from very old lines, in the times when the Bengals were still being 'constructed' as a breed by Jean Mill along with some ALC's/Domestics and Bengal hybrids from 'Centerwall' ALC's. This sole fertile female was Dolly's grandmother Vonburchana Jungle Queen (F2)...who was also an F4 Bengal from the other side of her family, so there is plenty of wild blood here...as well as a very rare line! If Merlin proves to be fertile we would like to try breeding him with one of Anna's and Ozzy's F5 golden rosetted Bengal girls, in order to keep the wild blood/looks and to continue this very rare Bengal blood line.

Merlin is classed as a Brown Spotted (Rosetted) F4 Bengal, even though he is Black rosetted. We thought it would be interesting to do a genetic profile on Merlin, so we sent DNA samples to Davis University in California, USA. Results were as follows:

Merlin does not carry any of the following genes:
Burmese (Sepia) or Siamese (snow genes)
Brown (Chocolate and Cinnamon)
Dilute (Blue)
Non-Agouti (Melanistic/solid colour genes)


So, in a nut-shell, Merlin can only produce Brown kittens. All kittens will be either Brown (Black) spotted/rosetted or maybe marbled if mated with a marble (or marble carrying) queen. None of the above colours will be carried onto Merlin's offspring from him. We do not know yet if Merlin carries the marble gene.

October: Our Champion Bengal stud cat Merlin has produced one baby Bengal daughter with our Champion Bengal queen Chiquitita. Congratulations Merlin and Cheeta!

We are hoping this very striking Brown (Black) rosetted F4 Bengal boy with a Whited Tummy (at the moment) may be a great asset to our Bengal breeding programme. He is still very young and was born with huge black markings continuing right down over his flanks....which is so much better than the normal small spots that appear here. He has a golden background and big black rosettes. His head is lovely, with a straight profile, good length and width to his muzzle and very light spectacles enhancing his big round, wild-looking eyes. His medium sized ears are well set, being correctly placed on the side with plenty of width between. Merlin is a big kitten and has a lovely tail, very thick and even with a rounded tip. His coat is very short, silky and dense. It feels extremely soft and has lots of glitter. His colour is very 'cool' and his pattern clear and a very dense black. We hope you will agree......this boy really is quite special and we think he will provide some fabulous black outlines and contrast on some of our golden rosetted girls from Ozzy & Baron.

Merlin has the most delightful nature and is a real purr-pot who loves cuddles......just like his F3 mum Dolly. This beautiful boy will remain here until we may hopefully get a 'keeper' kitten from him to enable us to continue this line...and we are going to thoroughly enjoy having him here as he is a real character!

Do take a look at Merlin's MORE PHOTO'S, where you can see just how exotic looking he is, and see how his huge rosettes cover his flanks.

SHOW NEWS MAY 17th MERLIN HAS BEEN TO HIS FIRST EVER SHOW....AND HAS COME HOME A CHAMPION! WELL DONE MERLIN! Merlin took it all in his stride and was a happy and well behaved lad throughout the weekend. He attracted a lot of interest at the show from Breeders, exhibitors and the public alike, and we constantly got comments like 'striking, stunning, beautiful, amazing.....and 'very wild-looking'! Needless to say, we are very proud of this unusual and yes...STRIKING! boy. There could be more to come here...so watch this space!

Introducing our new potential Bengal Stud Cat:
WESTWINDS WESLEY

Sire:

Champion Gogees Wild Daze

Dam:

Zawadi Mtamy

This fabulous BIG boy has really good boning and type and the most fantastic of temperaments! He is covered in thick, black-outlined doughnut rosettes on a very soft, short and dense coat full of glitter. He has very good ears...small, rounded and well set, with good width between. His profile is straight and his chin is strong and deep. As you can see, his pattern is very clear and he has a very thick, medium short tail with a rounded tip.
I am very much looking forward to seeing the results when this stunning young lad is mated with our Bengal queens!

Many thanks to Sarah at Westwinds Bengals for entrusting us with such a super Bengal boy.
