Characteristics: Benji is an amazing, especially sweet, friendly, very affectionate cat in the prime of life. He is very curious yet calm, and smart. Anyone lucky enough to make Benji part of his or her family will be blessed with a loving and devoted companion.To Benji, there is nothing better than following you from room to room. He is also quick to play, jump, catch or fetch toy mice in the air, snuggle, purr when you pet him, stretch, and sleep near his family. Occasionally, Benji will even engage you in a good conversation, especially when it’s time to eat or get a treat. He is very food-motivated and easily trained. He always uses the litter box, every time. He always scratches the scratching pad or the cat condos, and never scratches the furniture. He enjoys being on his owner’s chest, laying across your legs, on your lap, or spooning with his back against your torso. He’s one of the best cats I’ve fostered!
Appearance: Benji has very beautiful markings. He has a gorgeous, soft coat of fur, and he’s very good at grooming himself. His wide Tabby stripes look a lot like a Bengal (more like large spots than stripes.) He has a white neck and chest, and 4 large white paws. And then, there are his eyes — his expressive, yellow eyes. They are gorgeous and shine with all the great warmth and love Benji has to give.
His story: In late August when Benji was caught as a stray by a rescue group, he was taken to a shelter where he was inspected for a microchip and screened for feline diseases. He didn’t have a microchip, and his owner couldn’t be reached, so he got his chip at the shelter. Benji was diagnosed as FIV+. Please do a Google search to understand what that means for Benji. He was almost euthanized, but luckily someone spoke up and said that Kitten Rescue would find him a forever home in spite of his diagnosis. Sure enough, Kitten Rescue rescued him from the shelter, and he was brought to the KR Sanctuary. He ignored most of the cats there but he didn’t get along with a couple of cats, so he was placed with a foster mom (me) in November.
Placement: It is time to give Benji a wonderful, forever home he so richly deserves. That home must not include another cat, dog, or kids. The ONLY scenario for Benji would be to be the only pet in the family, and the center of attention.
