Gentle Ben's Info...

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

Gentle Ben's Story...
There he was, a beautiful Bombay kitty limping and looking for food in front of an apartment building on my way home. I walked up to him and he was the friendliest sole a person could ask for. I asked the men standing next to him if it was their cat and they said "no, the owner threw him out on the street and he is a really good cat". I picked him up and carried him home. He was so docile he never even struggled. This beauty really is the "cat's meow". Absolutely affectionate, sweet, gentle and so so loving, I couldn't ask for a better cat. It is tempting to keep him myself, but I already have 5 and I can't keep helping other abandoned cats if I don't adopt them out.

Ben is truly a sweet sweet boy. He is 1- 1 1/2 years old, has been neutered, tested negative for fiv/leuk, is microchipped, litter-trained, de-fleaed and dewormed and up-to-date on all his shots.

As I write this, he is nestling his head next to my laptop, just so happy to be near me.

If you would like to meet Ben, call 718-455-5711 or email me at
There is a tax-deductible donation so I may continue helping other cats and an application.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in New York 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 New York 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 New York paves the way for another one to be saved.
