Mancat Monday!!!! Introducing...




aka Benny

Mee-Yow Everyone! I am so pleased to met you all! Please call me Benny, although I am named for Benkei, Japan's famous warrior monk. He was very brave and so am I! He also wore the greatest pompoms so he must have liked cats!

I should tell you a little about myself. I was born not far from Poupounette Central, in a house that has lots of cats and vast grounds. All of us are well fed and vaccinated, but that's about it. The people told #1 that they had a five month black boy who needed a home. She came to see me, fell in love with me and took me home a week ago! I had a terrible infection in my ears which is why I had to go into Catantine in the guest bathroom. We went to see Dr. C on Monday. She cleaned out my ears, tested me for FIV/FeLV (negative on both counts) and told #1 that I also had a little cold. So, we came home with antibiotics (6 days) and ear ointment (3 weeks). #1 arranged the bathroom wth a nice comfy beddie, litter box, big cat tree and lots of toys. I could even look outside from the top of the cat tree!

This is me the day I arrived:


Here I am on top of the cat tree:

And I love to play!

#1 says I am so good about taking my meds and getting the ear ointment. In fact, she says I am a wonderful boy all around. A few days ago I had visitors! I met some really nice people called Mr. G and Ms. N. Do you know them?

Did I mention that I love cuddles?

And you know the most exciting thing? I have my very own woofie! His name is Ollie and he is great!

And there is a beautiful lady. Apparently, she is a queen! Queen Tama! She gave me a little welcome kiss!

I almost forgot to mention the most important thing! I love my #1! I purr and purr and purr when she holds me!

I am looking forward to sharing my adventures with all of you! I hope you will all be my friends!
