|Breed:||Domestic Shorthair||Color:||Gray Or Blue (Mostly)||Age:||Kitten|
Benjamin is a beautiful grey and white kitten with grey-green eyes, a little heart-shaped black nose and a small grey “goatee” under his chin. He is very affectionate, purrs constantly, loves to have his tummy rubbed and likes to play with his favorite toys, crumpled up pieces of paper. When Benjamin came to the county shelter in November, he was suffering from chronic diarrhea and had lost all the hair off the backs of his legs and under his tail. He patiently endured several baths from county staff and volunteers (the first clue that he was a special cat!) but couldn’t seem to shake the constant diarrhea, and was clearly miserable. However, once he got to his foster home and on a special diet and more medication, he began to improve quickly, gained weight, and his hair grew back. He is now ready and eager for his forever home.
Rescue Group Info...
We are an all-volunteer, foster-based group which serves to assist felines at greatest risk at our county animal shelter. We only rescue cats which are assurred to be euthanized for reasons of space, temperament and/or medical reasons without rescue assistance. Each of our volunteers has devoted a number of years, prior, volunteering at our county animal shelter (a.k.a. "the pound") and has firsthand experience in the tragic reality of the effects of homelessness on companion and feral animals. Many of the cats labeled "feral" by shelter standards prove to be merely tame, frightened animals simply needing a sense of safety, security and love. Our obligation is to those impounded which have no way out. And though we can not rescue all, we rescue as many as we responsibly can.
