Facts about Ben

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Brown Tabby
  • Age: Young
  • Sex: Male
  • Hair: Short
Ben is just over 1 year old and started life as a stray, living on a porch. After he was brought inside, he couldn't quite feel comfortable and tended to hide. He still hides at the shelter, but volunteers and staff are working to make him more at ease around people. We are confident that he will learn that humans are there to help him, not hurt him.
