Michelle says: Benny was born to a cat who was "indoor only." Benny's mom's owner, thinking that her cat never went outside, said she "did not bother" to spend the money on getting her spayed; she felt it was expensive and uneccessary. However, when Benny's mom went into heat, she squeezed past her owner at the door to get outside and got pregnant! Her owner didn't realize anything was up until she gave birth. The owner's brother worked at a pet store and contacted our rescue to help them with their kitty situation. Our rescue agreed to help her rehome the kittens if she agreed to get the momma cat spayed so this wouldn't happen again. She agreed and also paid for the spay. Benny and his siblings all found wonderful homes and momma cat doesn't go into heat and try to bolt out... or contribute to an already out-of-control overpopulation situation. We fostered Benny at the same time as Cinderella and Mulan. That's Mulan in the photos with Benny.

What a beautiful little Benny! Does he still have blue eyes, or did they turn more greenish...?

Benny is a magnificent little boy! Thank you for making sure he was one of his mom's one and only litter. Spaying and neutering provide more benefits than just reducing population. They also prevent serious health issues down the road and help to reduce inappropriate behaviors.

My Benny is a darker version with honey-colored fur and amber eyes, but he started out as pale as yours. He's a real love and lover, too. Such great photos, @Michelle, as always. (P. S. Cinderella was sooo cute.)

Benny is really a handsome cattie, I love his coloring. His face seems to have a little orange tabby in it. Glad that Momma is fixed and all the catties found homes. Thank you MIchelle for all you do for the stray catties.

They are gorgeous! And so good to hear the mother cat was spayed. If only all owners would spay their animals!

What a gorgeous kitten! He looks like a purebred flame point Birman. Love his blue eyes that are so expressive. Glad to hear that all worked out well for the kitty family. Would have to have adopted this munchkin though.
