It's never been a plan to acquire a new member to our cat family,
but it must have been "fate" when Benny came to us. In June of 2000,
one of our clients carried in a dirty, flea-ridden 8 week old kitten.
"My neighbor found this kitten on the freeway, about to be run over!
She can't keep it, what do we do?" Well, the plan at the time was
to find him a home. Ha!!!
Not long before the kitten came to us, we had lost a very special cat family member, "Cookie". It just seemed that Benny was sent to fill the "job opening". We decided that since "Cookie" was especially fond of recently retired Dr. Benson, we would name this kitten in his honor. So began the story of "Benny".
Never in our days of adopting a clinic cat has one fit in so quickly! It was only a matter of weeks before Benny had the run of the place. Even Robert decided that Benny was an OK kid. Benny has never had a shy moment, even cuddling up to large dogs or jumping on crates with cat patients inside.
Be assured that if you don't especially like cats, Benny will be in your face, asking to be noticed. Never one to stay still for long, Benny will fly by like a black & white comet while on the way to a new adventure. Blasting out of his cage first thing in the morning, Benny has the technicians trained to start the day by opening his can of Fancy Feast! Benny is a lively, fun-loving addition to the Gang at MTC.
(P.S.) If you purchased a bag of cat food that has a small hole chewed in it, we will gladly exchange it for a new one. Benny's promised to work weekends to pay his food bill.
