Domestic Short Hair : : Male
I’m Bennie, just like B-B-B-Bennie and the Jets! I came to KSC as one of the “Rocket Man” kittens – my littermates Elton, Bernie and Kiki have all gone to their furever homes.
When I came to my foster home I had a nasty right eye that I couldn’t see out of. The vet took it out so I don’t have to worry about infections down the road, and I think she did an awesome job! I still have one good eye that I use everyday to run around and play.
I was about three months old when my siblings and I came to our foster home, and I still haven’t fully learned to trust humans. I’m making progress, though! I’m a total foodie and will come up and eat out of your hand. At dinnertime, I will come up to you and twist around your feet like any other kitty would. I may even curl up on your blanketed feet while you’re watching TV or reading a book. It’s just that I sometimes get scared if you reach out to pet me. I may let you pet me if you approach me slowly. If you pick me up, you’ll see that I’m incredibly docile, and you can hold me and pet me for as long as you please. I promise I don’t bite!
Did you know that there are TV programs specifically for cats? Those are my FAVORITE! I will go right up to the screen and follow the birds darting around. I will even try to swat at them. When it’s not time for TV, you can find me playing with the other cats in the house. I have three siblings my own size, but I will also go up to the adult cats in my foster home and beg them to play with me. I love to roughhouse, but after a long afternoon of play I like to relax by curling up with another feline and taking a nap.
I definitely need a feline playmate. If you don’t have a kitty at home to play with me, check out my buddy Ronan’s profile page. He’s a really smart cat and we love to play together.
