Arrival Story:
We became the forever home for this sweet, shy little boy due to a divorce/foreclosure. Bennie was left in one freezing winter day along with 2 others to fend for themselves in a locked house. A neighbor noticed the blinds were getting broken in every window and called Animal Control and the police. The door was broken into and the three hungry cold kitties were rescued. Since a Vet knew we were looking for a special needs kitty we were called. Bennie acted as if he had been beaten and kicked during his young life and was afraid of any movement and women's voice or attempt to approach. The Junction Humans had their work cut out for them.

Bio:
Since Bennie was so afraid of women it was Male Humans goal to befriend the poor ball of fluff who shivered at every approach. It took him several months to gain his confidence. Each feeding he received a little more hands on, until finally one day he greeted Male Human with a leg rub. Male Human could not hold Bennie no matter what he tried. It was Girl Human's turn. After only a few days she was able to rub his neck and head. A few more weeks went before the hug was introduced. With ears flat and a fearful stiff body the confidence was gained. One day while Male Human and she talked Bennie rubbed Girl Human's leg without fear. Girl Human kept talking and picked Bennie up and gave Bennie a big long hug. Bennie was stiff and unsure but gave in. Every day for several weeks the same approach was given. Now Bennie loves to be hugged and placed close to Girl Human's chin. A kiss still brings a ears down response. We are still working on that. Purrs are loud and receptive. Bennie is turning into a big Mama's baby. Now when Daughter Human visits we go through a whole new introduction. Bennie is not stranger friendly. We are so happy he has blended in well in his new home.
