My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

Well, howdy there, humans! I'm Bennie, the undisputed king of charm and charisma in the cat world. That's right, I've been rocking the feline scene for a solid ten years, and let me tell you, I've been searching for my purrfect match for a whopping six of those!

When it comes to attention, I'm like a magnet for nose boops, kisses, and lap time. I lap up affection like it's the last bowl of cream on earth! (Side note: cats are lactose intolerant.) And let's talk playtime - nothing gets my whiskers twitching like a good ol' wand toy, especially 'Da Bird.' I'll pounce, swat, and strut my stuff like a furry ninja in training!

Now, let's address the elephant in the room - or should I say, the drama queen? Yep, that was me once upon a time. But fear not, dear humans, for I've found the cure to my melodramatic tendencies - a happy pill a day keeps the diva at bay! Trust me, it's made a world of difference.

When it comes to my fellow felines, I do have my standards. I prefer my playmates to be of the submissive female variety. As for our canine counterparts, as long as they're respectful and understand that I'm the true alpha, we'll get along just fine.

Now, let's talk about mini-humans. While I appreciate their enthusiasm, I must admit, I prefer a more mature audience. Teens, in particular, are my jam. They can read the moment and appreciate the nuances of my unique personality. After all, age ain't nothing but a number, right?

So, if you're ready to add a touch of charm, a sprinkle of sass, and a whole lot of love to your life, look no further than Bennie, your feline match made in heaven. Adopt me, and let the good times - and the nose boops - roll!

More about this rescue

Mission Statement: The Cat Network is an all-volunteer, not-for-profit, 501(c) (3), no-kill and life-enhancing cat rescue group. Since 1991, we have rescued and placed thousands of abandoned, abused, stray and shelter cats and kittens in St. Louis, Missouri and surrounding areas. After their rescue, the cats and kittens are provided medical care, tested for Feline Leukemia and FIV, micro-chipped and spayed or neutered. Cats and kittens are kept in foster care and then placed in loving permanent homes whenever possible.
