Date of Birth: 2002
Ben is the fluffiest cat ever. We think he is a Maine Coon mix that looks like a bear cub and is as cuddly as a teddy bear. He has big golden eyes that look at you with affection, earnest, and interest.
Ben came to Forgotten Ones when his owner became critically ill and could no longer care for him. After being with a loving family all his life, it was a difficult change for him, but he adapted quickly and his affectionate personality became evident at once. He enjoys having a good petting and being with people. When you have company, he will climb on the couch so he can sit amongst your guests and enjoy the attention. He delights in curling up with you for a good snuggle and will purr contently, but he is not needy. He benefits from the stimulation of having his bed by the window so he can watch all the activity going on outside.
Ben is older and has arthritis, for which he is taking medication. It is difficult for him to climb up on high places and his walk is slow, but he still enjoys playing with his toys and strings. Other than that, he is in excellent health and has no behavioural issues.
Ben is an easy-going, loving fellow that should be in a single pet family.
