Wee update on Benson for you all guys.  He has been reserved for adoption!  :)

Have to admit that it makes us a little sad too as we are all SO fond of Benson as he is just SUCH a big character and full of purrsonality. :Luv2:

He will be going to live with a lovely family who have fallen head over heels for him. Not that he let them do otherwise mind you as the whole time we were stood chatting he kept shouting - me! me! me!  :rofl:  and gave it the big loves and of course him eating treats straight from their hand just won them right over.

He is SUCH a gentle giant bless him.  He is due to go to his new home tonight so will update later to let you all know how it has gone.

Ahhh bless him ... he looks so happy.  It's amazing what a warm bed, abelly full of food and a snip at the vets combined with a bit of TLC does for a kitty.

I'm sure he'll find himself a willing slave very soon xxx

thanks guys.  He is definitely one of my favourites at the moment and he's such a wise yet cheeky soul.  He's definitely been here before.

Someone will be very lucky to have Benson as a companion.  :Luv2:

It is hard to think he is the same cat as he is so chilled and happy now and just takes everything in his stride - well apart from at feeding time when its a case of feed me NOW!!!!! lol

Ahhhh I bet he scrubs up really well once he is feeling well rested and fed. He has a look of a hansom dapper film star hiding behind his slightly battered weather worn look.
