About Me

Active within 1856 Days

Hi! My name is Benny

I am Domestic Shorthair from Douglaston, NY

Nicknames: Benny Boy, Baby Benny

Age: 8 years old

Gender: M

Coat: short haired

Education: Benny is the Mayor of the house. He makes sure everyone is kept 'in check' and follows Benny's Rules! He is also has a very good sixth sense, especially for his siblings. Several litters of rescue kittens in the house came down with a terrible virus and were deathly ill. I caught him dragging one of them by the scruff across the wood floor. I thought he was crazy and took the kitten from him. This happened several times until I finally just watched. He brought his brother to the water bowl and tried to make him drink. The kittens were dehydrated and I had been giving them fluid by syringe; I guess Benny thought he'd help!

My favorite tricks and treats are: He knows how to fetch when you ask "Benny where's your toy?" He also has the widest array of meows and unidentifiable sounds of all my cats. And when he directs his comments at you, he is quite serious about what he says! and Ice cream, which his grandma feeds him ALL of the time!

Where I hang out: Mom's bed

My favorite grubs: Benny was emaciated when he was rescued so food is extremely important to him. He eats anything and everything, and is always first at the food bowl and dinner table.

My pet peeves: Empty food bowl!!!

What I love about my owners: She believed in me when everyone else said she should have me 'put down'.

My cat hobbies: Play fetch with his toy mouse.

Pet motto: I RULE!

How We Met

Benny was my most heartbreaking rescue. He was 2 lbs and 3 months old. He was so weak the he could not stand and had the equivalent of bed sores on his legs that allowed his bones to protrude. His hindquarter was 'scalded' from diarrhea, his tail was broken in 3 places, and he was infested with fleas, worms, and a terrible respiratory infection. The infection progressed into his middle & inner ear and now he has a permanent head tilt when he stands. He used to trip and fall over regularly, but now he only falls down when there is too much movement around him. I was told he would need skin grafts to close his terrible wounds, but thankfully the medicated dust that we treated his wounds with worked. Benny survived and he is now the Mayor of the house. I whisper to him that he is "my heart" and he knows that he can do no wrong in my eyes. Benny tests this notion often.

Hello Benny,
We noticed you haven't been on CC for awhile but we still wanted to stop by and say meow.
It is a pleasure to meet such a fighter and little trooper. We are so happy that you survived and turned into a very handsome kitty, what a heart warming story you have my friend.
We are very happy that you were rescued and found your furever loving home.
We are leaving you a basket filled with 4 gallons of ice cream, catnip filled balloons along with a mousey pinata filled with your favorite treats and toys.
When you do log on to CC, please come by, we'd love to get to know you and would be honored if you would be our furfriend.
You take care sweet boy.
Leaving you a vote and silent votes for your family.
Gentle headbonks,
Harry

Hi Benny & Family - Hope you can help!
There is a kitty named Stashu #26309 who is seriously ill, and his family is very worried that he may not recover. He is a much loved kitty whose family has already lost two of Stashu's doggie siblings in recent months. We are trying to get as many votes for him today so he can be COTD tomorrow and hope you'll help. Please help honor Stashu by pawing the vote button on #26309 and make him tomorrow's COTD.

Hi Benny
It's my turn to blog--yippee! I'm the beautiful black and white gal with really big feet! When I appeared at Mom and Dad's house, I was cold and very scared. In fact, everyone told Mom I was too feral to ever be socialized. Silly humans! I was just holding out to be a house cat princess. It worked. Not sure what they ever did without me around here. You probably know what I am talking about--seems you wonder the same thing?! Purrs, Holly

Hi Benny
Happy Weekend. Thought I'd visit you today. With a group as large as ours, we tend to let everyone have a turn blogging. I looked a little like you when I was a kitten. That was a LONG time ago. I see you like ice cream too. I always wait for the ice cream bowl after Mom or Dad are finished with it. They make sure there's some left for me. Purrs, Gabby

Hi Benny
Here's another vote for my fellow fetcher-cat! It's cold and rainy here today, so I have to play inside. I get bored very easily, so Mom keeps my toy box full of cat crazies and furry mice. Purrs, Haylee

Hi Benny
We love stories that end happily like yours. You are a true survivor. There's nothing like a good game of fetch--I, too, understand when Mom tells me to get my toy--smart, aren't we? Welcome to CC--we're leaving you a vote. Hope you'll stop by and visit some of us sometime. Purrs, Haylee and the Green Mountain Gang
