[img]Hi, so this is a bit of a long back story but 2 years ago I bought a male brown bengal from a local breeder for $1200 then this summer I started looking for a female silver bengal. I was looking at a different breeder a few hours away who had very very nice silver bengals with no tarnish however they were 2200 to 2700. Then when I contacted the local breeder she had told me she had a silver girl bengal for $1800, so I put a deposit down. Two months later on the pick-up day when I got there she told me my kitten had a very bad heart murmur with a very bad prognosis and that she wanted to keep her to see how she did for a little longer. She gave me a choice of a new kitten from a litter that was just 2 weeks old - meaning I had another 10 weeks to wait. I had to make the decision right then and there and she told me there were two silvers to chose from a boy or girl however she said the boy would have a much better coat than the girl- so I decided on that (despite wanting a girl and having bought pink everything alright :P). The other downside was this male was $2500, a lot more than the first kitten. So I now have my kitten and he is 16 weeks old. When I picked him up the breeder assured me the brown in his coat would fade out and he would be silver. Over the past month his coat has only gotten more brown and today at the vet she said she expected him to just get darker. He looks more of a beige grey colour rather than silver. I'll attach some images below. Do you guys think there is any chance he will be a nice silver or will always have the tarnish and sandy colouring? Of course, I love him regardless. It just bothers me that I paid 2500$ for a silver bengal who doesn't even look silver - while I could have gotten a kitten from the very high quality silver breeder for the same price with zero tarnish. Do you think I should request a partial refund for the fact that he isn't silver?

All Opinions Appreciated!!

Thank You!!

He doesn't look silver at all to me. Do you have pics of him when you got him or pics she sent you when he was younger?

I am glad you love him but I feel like you got duped... having to 'make a decision right away' seems ridiculous when its not your fault the kitten you put a deposit on was not healthy (so she says).

Are they TICA registered?

I do not know much about silver bengals. So I checked WildNSweet's website with their silver kittens and they look like yours. To me, they just look like a brown spotted tabby. Did you get any registration paperwork? Did you check the breeder's website. Do they show any silvers?

Here is a description of the silvers:

Silver colored Bengal

Black or dark gray patterns are spread on silver gray background. Its eyes are greenish or yellowish grey. Its nose is black with soft brick red shade. The hair is white around its mouth and the edge of its mouth is black. Its belly is white silver with spots. Its tail is black with dark silver stripes ending in black. Its feet are black.

Kittens will change color as they grow. Breeders are supposed to know the colors and patterns of all bengals. Unless your breeder is deceitful, which most are not, you probably have a silver.

That being said, THIS KITTEN IS GORGEOUS!
