Ben and his brother Jerry were adopted out from a partner rescue as kittens. When their owner had to enter an assisted living facility we welcomed them into our program.
Ben is a handsome, large, calm boy. Ben is the more shy brother and takes a little bit longer to come around, but he is always gentle and nice. Once he gets to know you he is full of purrs and appreciation when you pet him, but he will need patience as he gets comfortable. One of their feline foster siblings isn’t always appreciative of their presence so the boys are separated from the resident cats. Their foster mom spends a lot of time with them and sleeps in their room a few evenings each week. On those nights both boys jump up onto the bed to sleep with her. They also greet her at the door with meows and head butts, especially at feeding time. While one of the resident cats doesn’t appreciate them, the boys are very friendly towards her the few times they have met. The second resident cat loves to go for “visits” to Ben and Jerry’s room and they will all lay together and groom each other. Ben is incredibly sweet and never lashes out when he is scared or overwhelmed, he always chooses to run and hide. Ben is incredibly sweet and never lashes out when he is scared or overwhelmed, he always chooses to run and hide. Ben previously lived with a senior dog, and would likely adapt well to a calm dog. Ben will make a great, gentle, calm companion for anyone lucky enough to adopt him.
