Benjamin’s 4th Birthday

Benny is our latest addition to our family. We adopted him in December 2019. He’s very loving and loves to cuddle with Kevin when he watches TV. But he is also very skittish. Which can be annoying sometimes. Because he also runs from getting brushed. And Benny sheds so much in Summer. Well, we have to take the good with the bad. Benny’s best buddy is Ozzy. They are both about the same age. And they always love to tumble around and get in trouble together. Ozzy seems to be the leader, while Benny follows him. We all celebrated Benny’s Birthday together. The dogs ate already and therefore got a milk bone. Joshua, Chewbacca, and Benny had canned cat food. And Ozzy got a little bit of whipped cream.

Happy 4th Birthday, Benjamin!

Benjamin, The Norwegian Forest Kitty

December 17, 2019

Benjamin is a 15 months old Norwegian Forest cat; we’ve adopted from our local shelter today. This is our third pet, we adopted in 2019; he’s our third Maine Coon next to Joshua and Chewbacca; and now we have six pets in the house. By city ordinance we are officially at our maximum limit.

Sara loves to call him Benny. Benny is still a bit shy, and tippy toes around the house, when he’s not hiding in his “safe place”, behind the Christmas tree. Katelynn lured him out with a toy wand. She loves how affectionate Benjamin can be around her. He rubbed his sides against her, and purred at her. Hopefully, he will be more comfortable around us in the next days to come. We gave him the best Christmas present what a pet could think of: a furever home.

Miss Trixie, The Neighbor’s Cat

Ms. Trixie

Lisa has a beautiful black cat, Trixie, which likes to come to visit our yard. When Benny sees Trixie, his demeanor changes, and he becomes all silly at the front room window. He rubs his head and swirls his body on the cat tree, until he falls off of it. Trixie looks up in the window and probably laughs in her own way. Benny and Trixie need a meet-and-great at some point. She definitely has an admirer.

Benjamin & His Chair

Benny rests on his favorite chair in the family room.

It took Benny a little bit to get comfortable in our new house. By nature, he’s skittish. Therefore, he had a hard time getting adjusted in the beginning. Once Benny found his favorite spot, he began to blossom again. He loves his chair in the family room, where he is elevated and not on the floor, but he has an easy escape route, when Zoey startles him. Oh, and he’s not sharing that chair with anyone. That is HIS chair.
