Bennie
Posted 8-19-16. Sweet black-and-white "Bennie" (Benjamin Buttons) needs a loving new home! His original owner rescued him as a kitten but unfortunately she passed away.

Very mellow and happy, gets along with other cats and loves to be petted.The new owner will need to be patient with him at first because of his former-feral skittishness, and he might not be good with small kids for the same reason.
