When he first arrived, Ben was very nervous but he quickly learned that our shelter staff only wanted to take care of him and make him feel comfortable. Once he knew that Jillian was at the shelter with him, that helped him come out of his shell and now he likes to run around and explore. He does get a little nervous when there is some commotion, and he runs back to where he feels safe...usually our shelter's bathroom or the visiting room. He has been tolerant of the other shelter cats, and avoids the young and active ones that like to chase each other around. He has not ever lived with a dog, but he has encountered a couple of our mellow, cat-friendly shelter dogs and he just runs away if he gets too nervous.
We are hoping to find a home for both Ben and Jillian together if possible, as the two are bonded. Ben has been neutered, vaccinated and will also be microchipped prior to adoption. If you want to find out more about Ben (and possibly Jillian) please contact us or stop by and ask to meet them.
