Benny was the First to find us after the trying times we faced in the early part of 2019.
I whole-heartedly believe that like his sister Luna, he was carried to us on the winds by our guiding lights and precious babies who traveled before... so that not only would Eggy finally have family again (two weeks somehow at that time in our lives felt like months), but so that we could begin to heal our bruised and battered hearts and souls to continue our difficult but SO important work.
Benny came to us from Cheltenham. He was advertised as a trouble-maker, difficult to handle, too much of a handful and not at all what "they wanted" in a kitten. They'd had him an undesignated time but stated he was only 10 / 11 months old by the time we collected him.
What was in fact his trouble? well we will never know for sure but he had never been held, never felt loved and was untamed/calmed. Within a couple of hours of being with Eggy and Luna (he was dropped off to me then my team went straight to collect luna!) he was rolling around on our laps, playing paperball chase and being a very shy but happy boy.
Aside from the occassional hiss towards Eggy as he had never before seen another cat and was certain she was going to try to eat him (she clearly wasn't, and was infact being so heartwarmingly sweet towards him despite her pains and sadness at that time that it made us teary all the time).... but aside from this ben was very much happy and settled in the cabin with no trouble at all.
It sounds nonsensical to anyone that doesn't know our journey and way of life with the cats past and present - but I grew to believe that he was partly Beany partly Chewie as he showed characteristics of both alongside his own unique "Benism".
