    We got Lily and Mona from Melissa about a year and a half ago and we couldn't be happier with our crazy bengals. They are so much fun to watch, full of spunk and personality, they absolutely love playing with each other, but are also complete snuggle bugs. They are from the same litter but have totally different personalities! But both of them are very playful and loving, and greet us at the front door at the end of the day without fail. Melissa was very helpful and kind, and you can tell that she gives the kitties tons of love from the very start. Thank you so much for our friends, we will definitely go through cats in the cradle bengals again in the future!!

    I can't say enough positive things about Melissa as a breeder...simply AMAZING!! I've had my baby, Mitzie, for one week now and she's the best kitten in the whole entire world. I can truly tell that she was raised with love from day one!! Also, Melissa has been there for every single question I've had - before and after bringing my baby home. I will only get a kitten from Cats In the Cradle Bengals from now on because I'm beyond impressed - and I recommend them to EVERYONE!!!! :)

    I am so impressed with Melissa as a breeder that I not only own 3 of her Bengals but now I own one of her Shih Tzu pups. She is the ONLY breeder I trust. All of the babies have come prespoiled and very loved and cared for. Thank you for doing such a fantastic job.

    We are so impressed with the quality of a cat we recieved from Melissa and Dan! Our girl Tiger Lily is absolutly amazing and has a amazing character. She is so beautiful and playful and keeps all of us busy playing with her. Tiger Lily frequently jumps into any body of water whenever she gets a chance and I mean "any"(toilet too yes!) LOL we have to be careful to watch her. She loves the water and will jump in the tub with my daughter at bathtime! We are so thankful for her and she has become a part of the family. Melissa and Dan were so proffessional and attentive to our every question and so kind. They made the whole process so easy and FUN!!!! We love our spoiled kitty so much! Thank you so much again!

    We bought our wonderful bengal baby Ezreal from Melissa and Dan 3 weeks ago and were absolutely over-joyed and content with our little bundle of joy. She on the other hand, was not as content being an only kitty and she sure let us know! We struggled for days to get her to eat, but we definitely were not alone. I continuously emailed Melissa questions and updates about our baby and she was always there to remind us that we were doing our best and Ezreal would come around. Finally we gave in to Ezreal's cries for a sibling and bought her wonderful brother, Thorin! Melissa and Dan did an amazing job taking care of our babies before we got them. Our bengal babies are our lives now and we wouldn't want it any other way. Everyone falls in love with our Bengal duo when they meet them and we always make sure to give a plug for our amazing breeders! There is no doubt in our minds that we made the best choice in choosing Melissa and Dan!

    When is someone a true Bengal addict? I have Baby Emma now who is my 2nd Bengal and in a month I will have little Daphne. That will make 3 of your wonderful Bengals. Like the old saying about cats - it should go for Bengals instead " You can't have just one!! " I can't imagine my life without these wonderful cats. To those that hesitate getting a Marble Patterned one - They are much more beautiful in person. I was pleasantly surprised. The marbling is beautiful and it makes their white tummy even whiter and their facial features stand out more. Now I have my spotted Catalina, marbled Emma and soon will have my snow Daphne. I admit it...I'm a Bengal addict and proud of it!!

    I wish I had discovered Bengals and Melissa and Dan sooner. I can't believe how much love and laughter is rolled into one little kitten. Little Catalina settled right in the 2nd day she was here forcing our 3 yr old Maine Coon to play with her by not taking no for an answer. Now they play constantly and race through the house. We laugh all the time at the antics she gets into even at 10 weeks old. Melissa, Dan and family did a fantastic job at loving her from the very start. I highly recommend Cats In The Cradle Bengals. Thank you so much!!

    I got Hunter in October of 2012 and He's a trooper> I was living in Alexander,Nd at that time. Since then He has been to Mississippi and met My Mother (Neenaw as Her Grandchildren call Her) and She fell right in love with Him. Hunter and I now live in Midland,Tx. I'm a heavy equipment operator and travel alot with My work. He loves to ride. He'll sit on the back of the seat right behind my right shoulder with his front paws on my shoulder and ride there for hours. I've never caged him. I will say that a travel size litter box is a must! He's great company and alot of entertainment.

    We picked our little girl Meeka up about six weeks ago. It was a great experience from the very beginning when we met Dan at the Torono gas station. You could see that he truly cared about our little one. After getting home Meeka settled in very well. Our current 1.5 yr old domestic short hair could hear the little one and was very inquisitive! We kept Meeka in the room by herself for around a day or so before Piper got a good look at her, so we just let them meet each other. They had supervised play time for around two weeks but now have full run of the house and they love it. Meeka enjoys "attacking" her sister quite often, it is great. Everyone that comes by or sees pictures online has nothing but good things to say, some are so amazed at how beautiful and exotic she is! I’ll wrap this up, just felt I needed to come and leave a comment. =) PS: If you do travel from the cities I suggest bringing a small tray or box of litter. ;) -Travis
