Little Benton

Primary Breed: Domestic Short Hair
Age: Adult
Size: Medium
Color: Gray
Sex: Male

Little Benton is full of personality. He can be sweet or feisty, depending on his mood. He is his own boss, and don't try to tell him differently! It's easy to see why he was named after the original famous Benton. They're both handsome grey and white boys with attitude. Benton had a bent paw, and Little Benton has a bent tail. He has attitude toward other cats, too. Little Benton was born in 2007. He was originally found abandoned. We found him a home, but his person passed away and Little Benton returned to Best Friends. He is on medication to help with his moodiness. His favorite thing is to go for rides in a stroller. He is an awesome guy who would love a home without other cats and a human who will chauffeur him around in his very own stroller.

As a part of our Single* pets adoption special, Little Benton is also available for free adoption!

*Single pets do best as the only pet in the home.
