Benjamin was rescued form a life on the streets when he was found in the dead of winter, searching through garbage at the back of a Sports Bar in Woodbridge. When he first came to NTCR he was extremely scared of people and spend most of his time hiding in his carrier. Slowly he started to realize that he could trust people and began to move to the front of his crate, make eye contact and eventually accept and anticipate being petted and getting treats. A very handsome medium haired tuxedo with the cutest little black freckle on his white face and an adorable pink nose and lips. Benjamin has a shy and timid nature who needs a very slow approach to establish trust and is unsure when you first start to pet him but when he is comfortable will stretch out his head to enjoy a good neck rub and enjoy the “luvins”. Benjamin is good with other cats but tends to prefer to be on his own we feel due to his insecurity. He will need a patient owner who understands his need to feel safe and secure and is willing to work with him at his own pace, providing him with reassurance and unconditional love. If you want to be the one to unlock the confident cat the Benjamin wants to be and give him the “furever” home & family he has never known, please fill out an adoption application and contact us.
