Ben's Info...

I am already neutered, up to date with shots, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Ben's Story...
My name is Ben, and I am a stately, well mannered, and handsome Bombay/ black DSH mix boy who was born around Valentine's Day in February 2015. My birthdate was perfect timing because I am a loving sweetheart to the 10th degree. Actually, that's not surprising because Bombay mixes are sometimes called Velcro kitties because they are so sociable and like people so much.
I have the Bombay mix's soft, sleek, and gleaming coat that is like black patent leather as well as mesmerizing round copper-penny eyes that look right through you and make your heart melt. I have a long, lithe, agile frame despite my deceptively heavy, muscular body. This comes in handy because, even though I am a young adult, I still love to play and have fun! I absolutely LOVE that toy Da Bird because it makes me feel like a hunter.
I know that black kitties are some of the best kitties around, so I know someone will fall in love me. If that person is you, I know that you will never regret having an affectionate chip of onyx cuddling with you while I operate my purr motor that sounds like a perking coffeepot.
Please don't be superstitious of black cats! Buster's Friends makes a concerted effort to rescue black cats and kittens from shelters because they are five times more likely to be euthanized than any other color of cat. However, many people who have had a black or Bombay mix cat before end up adopting another one because they seem to have such wonderful personalities and are emotionally stable and well balanced. To find out more about Bombay mixes, watch the attached 2-3 minute You Tube video that appeared on Animal Planet or Google 'Cats 101 Bombay.'
Ben is updated on shots, neutered, dewormed, microchipped, FIV/ FeLV negative, and ready for his indoor-only home. No de-clawing permitted. His adoption fee is $100, cash or check payable to Buster's Friends. Please click the contact button if you are interested in Ben, and we can let you know exactly where you can meet him.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Ben, a Houston Bombay cat was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Bombay for sale in Houston, or seeking a Bombay cat from a breeder in Houston.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Houston already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Houston breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Bombay breeders who help with Bombay rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Houston paves the way for another one to be saved.
