Arrival Story:
Albie had passed away and my husband was bugging me for another cat. I went on Petfinder looking for a Turkish Angora, which was the listing they had for Ben. When I went to pick him up I thought there was something odd about his backside & tail, but didn't think about it until I got home and my husband put my thought into words. After a couple months of research it finally became clear, Ben wasn't a TA, he was a Ragamuffin (sealed that deal when I went to take him to the vet and he made himself go limp and slide out of my arms). He's still our baby, regardless of breed.

Ben is special needs because he has had a life-long spraying problem. We are his 4th or 5th furrever home, but we will be his last. I have been working with him for almost 3 years now. At first I refused to give him drugs, but after 2 years and no change, I put him on a combo of Buspirone and Bottled Blessings No Spray drops and he hasn't sprayed since July (happy dance!).

Lives Remaining:
9 of 9

Forums Motto:
If you can teach it, I can learn it.
