Charles, I think you should follow the advice of the other posters -- get her retested, get her spayed and find her a home where she's wanted. If she is truly FeLV+, then find her a FeLV+ friendly shelter or adopter. It's in the best interests of the cat.
It would also be in the best interests of your stud to get him neutered and adopt him out to a home where he's wanted. A lifetime in a cage is no life for a Bengal. They need space to play as well as mental, emotional, and physical stimulation to be happy. Being kept in a cage and letting him out only to breed is cruel -- it's torture for him. He deserves better than that as a sentient being. My 2 cents.

Here's my story! I have a beautiful male Bengal Cat name Buddy Buck who is registered and I have papers and pedigree back 8 generations. I want to breed him and just have had no luck finding a cat I could afford. I went into my local vet's office which happens to be my vet as well and asked if they knew anyone who possibly had a female Bengal cat that I could breed my cat with. The lady at the front desk told me she did and gave me the girl's first name and phone number. All I had was the name Jennifer. I called and to my surprise she just happened to have a 9 month old Snow Marble Bengal. I told her I was very interested and wanted to see the cat. She didn't come by that night but did call the next day and I gave her directions to my house. I showed her my male who by the way is behind locked doors and current on all of his shots. I let her know my intentions was to breed the two cats. She had two cats in a carrier and showed my what I was told was the mother and daughter. The mother was beautiful but a little thin but had excellent markings. Then out came the cat I was supposed to be buying. This cat was eye knocking beautiful and had excellent markings as well plus beautiful blue eyes. I knew right there I wanted the cat. I told her I was looking to breed out my male and we agreed to let her breed two times with my male and I gave her $300.00. We spoke a bit more and I was just so happy to have just made a deal on such a beautiful cat. As we spoke I gave her the money and I asked for the shot records. She told me she would go by the vet's and pick up a copy and drop it off. I called her later and asked what kind of food she had been feeding and she told me back to the wild. I went by to pick up some. I got home and there were not shot records dropped off as she told me she would. I called and no answer. I sent over a text and again no answer. I sat down to fill out the paper work and then I was shocked. I noticed the paperwork was for a cat 2 years old. I called again and text and again no reply. This went on for another day and a half then I sent over a text message telling her the next call was going to be to the Sheriff's Office. This time I got a reply telling me to chill her daughter had got into an accident. Call me crazy but her daughter was about 4 or 5 years old and she was only 24 so I knew something was not right. I called the Vet and made an appointment for Saturday morning. I took her in. This cat had been staying indoors in a cage and my male is outside in his pen. I got back horrible news. The cat came back FeLV positive. I sent over a text message informing this little piece of trash of the outcome and no response. I waited 15 minutes and sent another message informing her I wanted another cat tested or my money back but preferred another cat. Again no response. I called the Sheriff's office and turned her in. I was knocked down to hear was I was told. I was not the first person to complain on her. I looked around and found another woman who had purchased a set of blue great danes and the both had Parvo and were very sick. I found another person and she had bought a puppy that had died after a few day. I was told to run her name on rippedoff.com and I did. I called the Animal Shelter in El Campo, Texas and they knew of her by the game. I called the SPCA and they knew she had been turned in multiple times for selling sick animals. I went back to the Vet and asked for her address and they couldn't give it to me. I found that no one I spoke with had it. I started digging around getting bits and pieces of information and was getting close to where she lived. I then found a break. I called the Animal Cruelty department of SPCA in Houston and was given the name of someone who may have been to her location. I called her and she didn't have the address but told me about where is was. I had to make several trips but found this piece of craps home. I got the address and called back to the SPCA. I am out time, money, and my poor little boy is driving me crazy wanting to breed. I am in dire need of a female Bengal and can't sell this cat as she is sick. I don't want an inside pet cat nor have I ever. I am taking good care of her and continue to feed her. I feel she has been mistreated and is very scared. She is the most beautiful cat I have ever seen just not a cat for me. I don't know what to do at this point so maybe someone can help me sort this out. Any feedback would and will be appreciated. Thanks in advance. Charles. _______________________________________________ Felvtalk mailing list Felvtalk@felineleukemia.org http://felineleukemia.org/mailman/listinfo/felvtalk_felineleukemia.org
