A volunteer writes: Benson is a medium-sized agouti boy who wears white mittens on his front feet all year-round! He also has a cute patch of white fur on his chest and a sweet white cottontail. Benson darts about nervously when you first approach him, but luckily there''s a trick to calm him down: massage his temples (the zone between his eyes and the base of his ears). He really enjoys it and it magically relaxes him! Once he''s calm, he''ll let you pet him in other spots. He likes head scratches a lot, but nothing beats those temple rubs! Benson will relax even more in his forever home, and would probably do best in a quiet, adult-only environment.
