12 year old • Male
Solid black,left eye missing, right eye disfigured. Medium size, sleek and elegant.
Ben is the happiest kitty you may ever meet: he spends all his time playing and loving his humans when not sleeping. This is so amazing because little Ben has vision in only one-third of his left eye. His right eye had to be removed and he had a second surgery after that.
Ben and his brother Harry were rescued from a rural shelter where they would have been euthanized the next day. They were both born with eyelashes growing inward, which damaged their corneas. They had been in pain their whole lives until IAR was able to arrange surgery for them. Even with so little vision, Ben can see toys and chases them and runs around the house having a grand time. Then he comes and asks for a snuggle and ï¿½kitty loveï¿½. He plays for hours with Harry, tussling and grooming each other.
Ben needs to be adopted with his brother and best friend, Harry.
Rescued from rural shelter. Had been turned in by owner.
