"I'm not sure how Benny slipped through the cracks when I visited the shelter previous times, but I'm so glad we ended up together. It was one of those decisions that felt like it clicked and the cliche phrase of 'who chose who?'," says Benny's new owner.
When it was time to go home, the shelter staff began assembling the cardboard carrier for Benny.
"As they did so they mentioned 'this can be the hardest part, getting them into the box' and as she was saying that he jumped right in."
"He's doing great these days. He's snuggly and talkative and has such a sweet disposition. He loves 'making biscuits' on blankets and sitting on his perch near the window," Benny's human says. "He's 13 now, has no teeth, he's FIV+, he tolerates me singing 'Bennie and the Jets' very frequently, and he's a big fan of snuggling."
Cats with FIV can live a long, happy life! They just need someone to take a chance on them.
