Mysterious. Bashful. Mushy.

Ben could be mistaken for a blockbuster movie spy! He is devilishly handsome and seems to enjoy hiding in dark corners, emerging only to capture his favorite flying fish toy. He is an international man of mystery, much more than just a pretty face.

Ben is working on overcoming his shyness! He would love a home with people to to help him become more confident. Here's the secret to winning Ben over - pets. Yup. It's just that simple. While Ben may be a little reluctant at first, he's just waiting for you to make the first move. He is a softy at heart, and will practically melt into the floor when you pet him. His purr is low and soft.

Ben loves wrestling with his sister, Anna, and he is very interested in his foster sibling kitten, Skywalker. He would do great with another kitty, especially a buddy that he can wrestle with. We don't know how Ben does with kids or dogs, but we always recommend a slow introduction to family members to make sure everyone feels safe and comfortable, especially with a tender boy like Ben.

Ben is soooo good-looking! His tail has the faintest tabby stripes, gray on gray, which you might miss because his fur is so silky and shiny. No Hollywood enhancements needed for this stunning boy, he's a 100% natural beauty. 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.
