Comment from Sinclair and Sharon who have Faith from Dream and George March 2019
We're very happy with our new kitten from Summerspride Bengals as well as the care provided for her. She has lovely markings, is full of energy, loves to investigate as well as gets on great with our other bengal. Already they make a great pair together and we look forwards to spending many years ahead in the future with her. Regards Sinclair and Sharon
Comment from Joan who has Ludo from Snow Kisses March 2019
For various reasons, I had thought long and hard about getting another Bengal kitten and contacted Julie at the end of summer 2018 regarding concerns and availability. Not only was Julie expecting kittens within a few weeks but she was moving to Scotland within a few months. Serendipity. From the time Ludo (a silver charcoal boy) was born, up to and beyond picking him up, Julie has been in constant contact supplying videos and photos - and always happy to answer questions and reassure me. I have had Ludo for just over 2 months now - he is a constant delight and a typical high energy, naughty Bengal but very clever. He has settled in extremely well with my other 2 cats (Burmese and Abyssinian) - so well in fact that it seems he has always been here. He has a superb temperament and is very friendly with everyone who visits - and is very much admired. All that is testament to the care, committment and attention that Julie has given to her breeding lines and the hard work she has put in to raise healthy, happy and sociable kittens.
I cannot fault the love and attention that Julie gives to all her kittens, cats and new owners both before and after 'handover' day. Would highly recommend.
Comment from Gary Campbell who has one of Kisses bengal babies :-) November 2018
I purchased this gorgeous silver charcoal Bengal boy from Julie and Andy of Summerspride Bengals on 11/11/18. From the first time of speaking to Julie I could just tell how passionate she was about breeding Bengal cats and just how much she really cared about the type of people where her babies would be homed. I just felt this lady is the person where I should by my Storm from. From that conversation until now Julie and Andy are always on hand any time of the day or night anything that you need to know you can just call. I was given regular weekly updates, videos and photos so I always knew how he was doing. Once Storm was purchased that’s when Summerspride Bengals come into their own, their after care service is second to none, it actually feels like they’re right there with you making the settling in period effortless. Its now over a week and I’m still in contact with Julie on a regular basis as she really likes to know that her babies are ok, and also us the parents are ok as well. Storm has settled in without any problems, he is such a well bred full pedigree kitten, so loving and affectionate and that is all down to Summerspride Bengals care and attention to detail. Storm now has a big sister Nyah who even though they have only known each other a week or so they’re getting on like they have always lived together, so Summerspride Bengals kittens are well socialised and very beautiful, in due time myself and Hayley will definitely buy another one or two ????but I would urge anyone looking to purchase a kitten please choose Summerspride Bengals they’re the best choice. Thank you to Julie and Andy for everything, from Gary, Hayley, Nyah and Storm ????????
Comment from Niki and Mark who have four babies from us :-)
Comment from Janis and Edward who have six bengal babies from us March 2018
Two and a half years ago we decide that we’d like a Bengal kitten. After much searching, we found Summerspride and Julie, who is an exceptionally dedicated breeder. Our first Bengal babies were Cloud, an amazing Silver Snow boy, and Willow, a very beautiful Brown Girl. We fell head over heels in love with them and built a lovely friendship with Julie.
A year later we brought our Silver boy Loki home and then a few months later, Dove who is a Silver Snow girl. Cloud, Willow, Loki and Dove are all totally adorable – beautiful Bengals with amazing personalities, which is all due to Julie’s expertise and the sheer amount of time she puts in with all of her cats and kittens.
We thought at the time that we’d stick with four Bengal babies, but after chatting we thought we might like two more…. Yes, we’re addicted!
The two babies we wanted were a Silver Girl from Ariel and Sambuca and a Melanistic Baby from Kisses and Sambuca – this was before any pregnancies were confirmed, just our wish list! Then incredibly, Ariel and Kisses were both expecting babies and even more incredibly, Ariel had a Silver girl and Kisses had a Melanistic boy – exactly the babies we had dreamed about! We can’t thank Julie enough for sharing their births with us, emailing as each baby was born and sending photos and videos right from the very beginning - such a special privilege.
So, we have now added Echo and Oz to our Bengal family. Echo is the most beautifully marked Silver girl with such a pretty face that she makes our hearts melt. Oz is a Melanistic Silver Smoke boy with stunning shaded markings and an INCREDIBLE personality. Both babies are confident, trusting, playful, friendly and totally adorable – they are a real testament to Julie’s dedication and the hours she and Andy put into all the Summerspride cats and kittens.
If you are looking for a Bengal kitten get in touch with Julie at Summerspride and then you’ll begin to understand why we now have six!
Love from Janis, Edward, Cloud, Willow, Loki, Dove, Echo and Oz xxxxxxxx
Comment from Addy and Jack who have Ariel and her snow baby Atlas Feb 2018
“ We have two absolutely stunning cats from Julie; Ariel and her son Atlas.
They are both so sweet and gentle and have a very close bond -
not to mention how amazing they are just to look at.
Julie was extremely helpful and informative throughout the process -
she could not have done more for us. She clearly has an amazing passion for all of her cats
and it really shows through in Summerspride kittens.
We have fallen totally in love with them after just two weeks! Thank you so much Julie for our babies :) "

Feel free to the use following testimonial..
When we decided to look for a new addition to the family we spent
several weeks researching different Bengal Breeders to find the
perfect kitten. We settled on Summerspride and Julie because of the
way she raises her kittens. Julie is clearly but passionate and
knowledgeable about the Bengal breed and puts in so much personal time
and effort in ensuring her Kittens are always well socialised, used to
being handled and used to other pets.
All of this love and attention shows in our beautiful Amber, she is a
wonderful kitten who runs us ragged but also loves to just sit and
cuddle whilst you watch TV or 'try' to read a book. We couldn't of
hoped for a better tempered Bengal to add to our little family. Id
definately point anyone wanting that special Bengal to Summerspride
PS Amber says : "HG299999999998QWAVC`F1Q - ~"""2"

but not Jasper, hes being grumpy
I have now had my Bengals, Wilf & Boo, for a week now and I have truly enjoyed every moment. They are both individual personalities but so glad I got my brothers because they are obviously devoted to each other and I think this has helped for such a smooth transition.
I cannot thank Julie enough not only for being such a professional, responsible breeder but also for the peace of mind you get with issues you are unsure about. Julie is there for you and if, you are like me, baby-stepped me through the whole process with patience and kindness.
would definitely advocate Summerspride Bengals to anyone interested in investing in Bengals and to those who are genuinely committed to the demands Bengals require. If you have the committment you cannot get a better kitten!
Thank you Julie x
We are lucky and very proud to be the owners of a beautiful Summerspride baby Bengal boy. Summerspride Leopard Tanzanite or Khamsin as he is affectionately known is an absolute delight to own. He has a fantastic temperament and loves his cuddles and play and spends most of his time purring away like a tractor engine. He is also a very confident and well grounded which enabled him to settle well with my two silver girls quite quickly. This is all testament to the love and care that Julie puts into her Bengal babies which is second to none. I would recommend Julie, Andy and Summerspride Bengals to anyone who is looking to purchase a special Bengal baby. We cannot thank them enough for allowing us to have our very special Khamsin whom we love dearly.

Some photos for you...
Thank you to Julie for bringing a lot of joy to our lives...our two bengal boys are beautiful and don't know what we would do without them now. Julie gave a very professional service and she really cares about her cats. Her dedication to the kittens she looks after from day 1 is really admirable. Thank you so much.
enough to pick our Harry, by Sambuca and Ariel, he is Snowballs
brother. He was such a cute baby & after doing our research and
visiting the babies we were hooked. We have since become mum & dad
in 2015, to Harry's half-brother George, by Sambuca & Dream. Then
this year, 2016 we are mum & dad again to our gorgeous Teddy, by
Snowball and Snowkisses, Harry & George's nephew. They are all
adorable babies, they stick together like glue, although get on very
well with the other 3 moggies. Our bengal babies are very sociable and
want to be with us at all times, they are very nosey. We have noticed
having bengals & moggies how different the two breeds are. The
bengals showing much more of a wild side not only in looks but in
character as well. They are always busy in the day, only calming down at
night when we all sit down. They are all loved very much and very
spoilt. They have a large outside cat run which is joined to the house,
so they have the freedom to come and go as they please. All our cats are
safe and we wouldn't have it any other way. Bengals should not be
allowed outside to roam free from home, as their temperament, nosiness
and sheer curiosity would not do them any favours. Julie and Andy at
Summerspride Bengals with no doubt raise beautiful babies, with the most
loving qualities. Looking forward to our next bengal :-)

Comment from Emma who has Bailey and Woodford from Ariel & Sambuca May 2016
For your comments page:
ulie at Summerspride is completely committed to the kittens she
breeds. She is very knowledgable and always on hand to offer advice or
give support. Our 2 boys are the most beautiful and sociable kittens,
both with amazing temperaments. The time and effort
that Julie puts into these kittens definitely shows. I would recommend
Julie as a breeder to anyone.

I wanted to write you a special message to thank you personally for coming into my life and blessing me with my darling boys Coal and Ice! They have already settled fantastically and become a part of our family unit and both adored by Scott myself and the children! ( as you know I had a very personal void for many years that I'll always hold close in my heart) but we are now ready for a bran new adventure together.
You have been there from day one, keeping me updated with how the boys are doing, growing etc and I couldn't have asked for more and nothing is too much trouble, you are there to give advice, chat and as a result we have now built the start of what will continue for many years to come a wonderful friendship!
I can not wait to experience my 1st show with Coal by your side representing Summerspride proud as punch :-) you are such a large part of why the boys are who they are and we will keep you in their lives without question.
You put soooo much into your beautiful cats and well they are the prof to demonstrate this also and I would highly recommend you to any body who wants and are lucky enough to welcome a Bengal into their family.
I look forward to watching my cheeky boys grow and become stunning male cats just like their daddy.
Take care and thank you again.
Carli and family xx
What can we say that hasn’t been said before? We are now the proud owners/parents/servants to two amazing Bengal kittens, Cloud and Willow. Once we found Summerspride, the decision was made – these were the kittens we wanted – loved, cared for, given masses of time and attention, healthy, confident, lively bundles of fun – and of course, extremely beautiful. Thank you so much Julie, for letting us bring them home, for all the time you and your family spent with them while they were growing and for all the excellent advice.
Cloud and Willow have only been part of our household for just over a week and are very settled already. They follow us around constantly and today ‘helped’ with the housework! Life will never be the same again – it’s so much more fun now :)
Thank you again <3
Janis, Edward, Cloud and Willow
It has been just over a week now since we bought our boys Kinshi & Ren home. They have changed so much every day growing in confidence. They are bright and alert, wanting to explore every inch of the house. The boys are so different in personality but they both have the confidence that comes from all of the work that you have put in over the first 13 weeks of their lives. The process of you picking us to love and look after the boys has been a great experience. We have enjoyed getting to know you and appreciate all the hard work you put into Summerspride Bengals. Thank you for all the help and advice which has made it so easy getting them settled into a new home. We appreciate that you are always available if we need to ask any questions. I would 100% recommend you to anyone wanting a top quality Bengal.
Love from us all
Kinshi & Ren xx

I just wanted to say a very big thank you for our beautiful little Snow girl Fern. I can't put into words how happy she has made both Martin and I. She has settled in so well and is such a confident loving calm playful gorgeous little princess which I'm sure is down to all your hard work.
As you know on the 1st June we lost our beautiful Snowshoe boy Hugo to lymphoma aged only three years old. We were both devastated and totally lost without him.
Looking on the internet six weeks later I came across Summerspride and thought how kind and caring Julie sounded with the most wonderful Bengals. I fell in love with Summer and couldn't believe my luck when Julie told me she had a baby Snow girl available just two weeks old.
Every week I received pictures and sometimes videos of Fern growing up. I really looked forward to these and weekly updates on Julie's blog. This helped so much with me bonding with Fern.
Julie has a wealth of knowledge on Bengals I could listen for hours she is so helpful.
When we picked Fern up everything went so smoothly. Paperwork already in folders and kitten pack even containing a sample of used litter to pop in her litter tray when we arrived home. No stone was left unturned.
Julie you are a wonderful breeder and lovely person. Please keep breeding these happy kitties and making owners like us soooo happy.
With our love Nikki Martin and Fern. Xxx

Hi Julie and Andy, We couldn't see where to add comments to your website so we thought we'd drop you a line to put on yourselves. Thank you so much for letting us have Dexter (Summerspride Rajah) in our lives. He's such a loving,
confident and talkative cat and he's so full of energy. Thank you so much for going the extra mile with Dexter right from the first call that we made enquiring about
your kittens. You have shown boundless dedication and have gone way beyond what we'd ever have expected from
a breeder. Wow...what about the fantastic kitten pack! A beautifully presented folder of documents
(bound by a lovely wood heart with 'Dexter' on it) plus all the fantastic extras! Incredible! I can honestly say that anybody thinking about sharing their lives with a Bengal or Bengals should definitely
make Summerspride their first call. Everything that your website says about love and care coming first is
absolutely spot on. Cheers, Paul and Lynn

By magic one of your babies - Too Funky - ended "up" with us - and though
he has only been with us for 5 magnificent day - we are so happy...
Our first Bengal is not to crazy about him YET but she is very interested
in him.. As are we.
The way you 2 Summerspriders have brought him up - the love, care and
knowledge and time you put in to your cats and kittens are above and beyond
anything we have seen anywhere before. Thank you so much; we hope you will
continue to make little families like ours happy. On this eve of
Thanksgiving - where at one time6 adults and 1 child were adoring your
little kitten playing - we send you all our thanks and admiration.

To Julie, Andy, and all at Summerspride,
Wow its been little over two weeks since we brought our little girls home Narla and Miley, its been just amazing they are truley little love bugs.
They have grown in so many ways since the first day we met around March the 12th, with March the 13th the day Julie and Andy
gave us the good news as to their decsision on letting us be the proud parents of two baby bengals.
I know this is not a decision you take lightly as you are so dedicated to your baby bengals from the moment they are born with only
the first grade care. This is definatly evident when first meeting you, thankyou so much for making us feel so welcome with all the
advice and guidance, as to what items we needed, what foods, what to expect you left no stone unturned and even making daily calls
to make sure we were all settleing in ok. " Thank You "
This has been a real adventure from the start and your advice and guidance has given us the perfect start to our new family and from the
moment Miley and Narla came home we knew we had made the best possible choice. Now the adventure really begins and knowing you
are only a telephone call should the situation arise gives us great comfort.
You are more than welcome to pop over to see Miley and Narla in their new home it would be great to catch up.
Thank you once again from the bottom of our hearts

Dear Julie and Andy at Summerspride,
I would like to thank you sooooo much for letting two playful, lively, mischievous, fun, curious, cheeky,
beautiful Bengals come home with us!
It was amazing to find someone who cared about something other than the money they made! This experience has
been absolutely great and I would really recommend it to anyone I meet.
I can't put into words how amazing it has been.
Everyone who comes round sees the two kittens and immediately says, "Oh my god! They.. they're stunning! Never
seen markings like it!" and I couldn't agree more.
My dog is especially fascinated. It's like all of our Christmases came at once!
Lilac is cuddling me as I write this email!
Our Tonkinese are safe to say, for the moment, not interested but the dog absolutely loves them. They sleep nestled
up together on the same bed. So sweet.
They were frightened of the TV and the kettle at first. They ran into the living room and under the sofa! They are
fine now. Sit on the sofa while it's on!
It didn't take them long to become confident with the house. Shows how much work you put into them while they were very,
If (when) I get another Bengal, I will come to you first!
All our best wishes,
James, Anita, Steve, Lilac, Eden, Charlie, Danny and George.

Just wanted to let you both know how much we appreciate all you both have done for our new addition :)
He has settled in so well to our household and we have you to thank for that.
We really couldn't ask for a kitten with a better temperament and character.
The first time we came to see what Summerspride were about we knew instantly that you guys were the ones
we wanted to get our baby from :) you really can't put a price on all the time and love you put into
every cat/kitten you have. We can't imagine going anywhere else to buy a Bengal - we already want another :)
Really can't begin to tell you how grateful we are!

“Summerspridebengals is so more than your normal Bengal breeder.
They offer excellent advice and support both before and after you collect your little bundles of joy.
Julie prides herself in producing quality kittens and it really shows from the moment you step into her home. “
Comment from Emma & Darren 26.09.2012
I wanted to tell you that we feel truly blessed to have little Sammy and Lilah, they were your first silver babies and we are so grateful to you for choosing us to be their mummy and daddy! We love them so much, watching them growing up and gaining in confidence is just the best thing ever. We have so much to look forward to, teaching them to walk on harnesses and taking them outside for walks! Sammy is just so full of kisses and cuddles, when you pick him up he just relaxes into your arms, and little Lilah is the prettiest thing ever, she loves to sit on my lap and stretch out. The only thing they hate is the dustpan and brush, they try to attack it as soon as it comes out of the cupboard, its the funniest thing.
Getting two kittens together was fantastic as they interact with each other and with us and watching them grooming each other and cuddling up together at the end of a play session is magical.
Julie, I really wanted to say thank you from the bottom of my heart for the amazing help and support you have given me when Sammy and Lilah had upset tummies, I was so worried and you were there for reassurance and advice, calls, emails, texts, whatever I needed. You really went over and above the call of duty. You have done so much to help us settle and adjust and I don’t think I could ever thank you enough! The welcome pack and tips and advice have been invaluable plus your patience with my endless questions.
I also wanted to tell you that the vet, who sees kittens all day long, make a special comment to us about how stunning the kittens were, but more importantly what fantastic health they were in.
As you can tell from my constant updates on Instagram, I am totally in love (as is Darren) with our new babies and we are frantically trying to capture their development and progress and not miss any of the cute and funny things they do.
Its my pleasure to keep you updated on their progress and I will continue to send you pictures (lots, like I did yesterday!) as I know you still care so much about them.
Once again thank you so much, and please give Mummy Lily and Daddy Romeo a kiss from Sammy and Lilah.
Emma and Darren xx
