Life is good with Bene! She is affectionate, social, and easy-going. Sitting on your lap is one of her favorite places to be! She adores for you to pet her and snuggle with her.

Bene and her sister, Maida (7611) were adopted together as 4-month-old kittens, and have been together for 12 years! So they are bonded and depend on each other. They were surrendered by the only humans they have ever known due to a move abroad. So now these two senior gals are looking for a home together forever (or for the next 12 years, whichever comes first!). Before their stay with APA!, Bene and Maida were declawed. As a result of this, they must remain indoor cats.

Bene isn't very interested in playing - she'd rather spend time with you! Or with Maida. She will tolerate other cats, and was curious about the dogs in her previous home but didn't interact with them. She's fine with kids as long as they simply pet her; she doesn't want to play with them.

Bene has diabetes and requires some extra medical care, which may include a regulated diet and/or insulin. For more information, please contact APA!

Bene and Maida are looking for a calm and peaceful home together. Bonus points for a sunny window perch for snoozy cat naps!

Contact us today to arrange a meet & greet!

All APA! cats are fully vetted, spayed or neutered, and have updated vaccines and a microchip. Lifetime support is offered by our Cat Behavior Team.
