Got my male bengal from Pat November 2016. Not only did he have worms, but he also had bloody foul smelling diarrhea and tested positive for giardia! Still dealing with some of the stool issues today. Its been a complete nightmare.. and has gotten very expensive!

I bought a kitten from Pat almost 15 years ago. Brought him home in early August, he was diagnosed with FIP within weeks, I had to put him down less than 4 months after I brought him home. He was just under 7 months old. I brought him to my vet the day after bringing him home. The vet was shocked at how small he was and kept repeating he thought something was seriously wrong and there was no way the breeder didn't know there was a problem. He wound up having worms, despite Pat and the paperwork I had saying he didn't. My vet hoped fixing that would lead to what was wrong, why he was so small, and it did, FIP, which is 100% FATAL and for which there is no diagnostic test!
I called Pat immediately. She said I could bring him back and she'd give me his brother or wait until he died and get a refund. No apology, no admission of wrong doing, not even a whisper of remorse. I chose to keep the kitten, love him, keep him as healthy and happy for as long as he had a quality of life. Which was until 3 weeks before Christmas.
When I called Pat after I had to put him down, I was given the run around. She still had his brother, from the same litter, and was very pushy that I should take him instead of a refund. I declined, asked her to send me a check. Having not received one by the new year, I called again, after that I was never able to get her on the phone again. I emailed her, she responded at first, tried insisting I take his brother, constantly insisting. She claimed she couldn't send me a refund until another litter was born and sold. Then she stopped responding to emails. All of this time, still no apology, no I"m sorry you lost a kitten you loved, nothing. This was clearly not the first time she'd been through this, as I can see from the comments here.
I gave her 3 months from the date my kitten died. Still no refund and complete silence, no response to calls or emails. In early March I sent her a registered letter, demanding she honor the signed contract, a copy of which I included, and send me a check by the end of the month or I would pursue legal action. I gave her until the end of the month. I didn't get a check until the first week of April. I regret not filing a lawsuit against her. Clearly selling fatally ill cats and kittens is a very common thing for her. I don't understand how she can be registered with TICA or The International Bengal Cat Society. I hope someone takes the loss of their Bengal, or any of the other breeds she also sells, to the next level and tries to have her cattery shut down. I'm so sorry and heartbroken for anyone who this woman sells a sick cat to.

I purchased a Bengal Kitten from Pat. She was born February 7, 2017. She is now home with my family and myself. She is beautiful, fun, lively. Pat also uses a terrific woman, Cheryl, to help raise the kittens until they come home. I was able to come pick out my kitten and visit her. Pat and Cheryl explained everything about how to raise my kitten and provided me with a bag of toys and sample foods for her. The house was very clean. I would highly recommend purchasing a cat from Pat. I can tell you, with 100 percent certainty, that I would buy another kitten from Aluren.

I received my first Bengal from Pat 17 years ago as someone bought him and was being transferred to England and at that time would have had to quarantine for6 months. I had him for 17 years and he was the most wonderful cat. He died at home with congestive heart failure. I called Pat and she gave me a full grown male who did not work out as stud cat. I had to pay to have him neutered but he seems to be fine. His one eye is running but vet said he is healthy. He is a beautiful cat and has adjusted well to our home and the other cat. Since I did not pay for either cat, I feel I can't complain. I will say the house is filthy and smells. She said he was kept in big cage. Was very very thin and not used to roaming on his own. Has gained weight and looks beautiful.

I bought a toyger from her back in April, The kitten was a little under weight but otherwise healthy.. Within days of purchasing, I had the kitten seen by a vet for a full check up / evaluation... He held off on some shots (wanted the kitten to gain some weight first and some additional time from the last set of shots). Kitten tested FIP/Felv negative. So far a very happy and active kitten..

We originally had 2 wonderful Bengals from Pat. The first Bengal died from cancer at 14 so decided to get a kitten to keep the other one company. It was my children's first kitten. We picked it up in November 2 days before Thanksgiving. It died not even a month later 2 days before Christmas from FIP. My kids were devastated. We called Pat while at the specialist office and she was surprised the kitten had FIP and offered a new kitten. We had to wait until the summer for kittens to be born. We finally chose another kitten in July. In the beginning of October is started having problems. The vet originally ordered an ultrasound because his blood work was off. On the day of the ultrasound the cat went into crisis and died of FIP AGAIN!!! 2 days before Halloween. We also think it affected out 15 year old cat. She seem to start declining the same time the kitten did and she passed 12 hours after he did. We were devastated yet again. We couldn't believe in a years time we lost 2 cats and 2 kittens. My son didn't even want a fish in fear it would die. We received most but not all of the thousands we spent on medical care and cost of the kittens. We also had issues with her paperwork and I have to say we had the same problem 15 years ago with our original cats. However we were not showing them so we didn't care. Because we wanted kittens we spent a ton of money replacing carpets, furniture and every trace of a cat before we allowed new kittens in the house . So we knew this disease was gone. I am happy to say we now have 2 exceptional Bengals that just turned 1 in May. This breeder invited us to see her facility even before the kittens were born. It did not have the offal urine smell and they were quite diligent on cleanliness. We were able to see both the studs and queens and interact with them as well as recent kittens. When the kittens were born we were constantly sent updated baby photos. We had to wait 12 weeks because we were told a kitten is still working on its mothers immune system from the milk at 10 weeks. We got the kittens from Pat when they were 10 weeks and right after is when we started having the problem with Pats kittens. The new breeder also provided a baby book and complete lineage of both parents as well as being able to access them online. From our experience we would not recommend this breeder.

I will say I had the same problem with this breeder. Pat told us our cat got all the 8 of 10 different problems diagnosed with him from a different breeder she initially sold him to from her cats. I was shocked when I was told he was sold and returned and then sold to us. I have spent thousands on him and he again showing signs of being sick again at just over a year old. I also want to add I have no idea what brought me here today except it must be because it's close to the birthday of my first Bengal I got from her that passed away. He would have been 10 on May 31st. So anyone who is thinking about a purchase from this breeder DO NOT DO IT!!! You will be nothing but heart broken!!!

We got our first Bengal from Aluren in the late 90s. After purchasing her, we took her to our trusted vet to get checked out. The kitten was already spayed when we got her - fine with us as we wanted a pet. The vet said that whomever did her spay was, and I quote, "a butcher." The cat died at age 11; we put her to sleep due to liver disease. I will say, before she became ill, the cat lived a healthy, active life. ... Stupid me ... I got a kitten from Aluren after the first Bengal died. It broke my heart when he died two weeks later. I had to put him to sleep -a kitten! He had something go catastrophically wrong with his kidneys. Aluren offered me my money back or a replacement kitten. I opted for a new kitten. I am happy to say that, four years later, he is very healthy and strong. I do not recommend Aluren at all and know better now not to be so trusting. Aluren should be investigated.

I have purchased a kitten also and died after having it for 2 months from FIP. Do not purchase ANY kitten from this breeder.

I also received a FeLIV positive cat from Aluren. She gave us another kitten to replace it and that kitten was sick and died a few days later. Our vet said not to trust any cats coming from her. She then gave us a third cat that is luckily healthy. Do not buy from her. All of the records she gave us were wrong!

I also received a kitten that tested positive for Feline leukemia virus (FeLV), numerous bacterial infections, ringworm, and yeast iin ears from Pat Killmaier of Aluren Bengals and Aluren Toygers. She insisted it must be a false positive for the FELV but my vet strongly disagreed with everything else wrong with it. He wrote a letter of unfit for sale and we gave it back. It had blood oozing out its rectum day 1. And thanks to your review I now found out what it gave my two older cats and that is Tritrichomonas foetus. I am disgusted with this breeder. & no the bengal is not immune to FELV.
