Benton is such a great guy that is hoping you'll overlook the tiny bit of baggage that he carries with him.  Benton is about 8 years old and this super sweet boy came to us as a stray that somehow ended up living in a feral cat colony.  Benton is far from feral, and is incredibly nice, friendly, and gentle.  Unfortunately while living outdoors, Benton contracted FIV (feline immunodeficiency virus).  Back in the day, many people thought that FIV was a death sentence.  Nothing could be further from the truth though, and it's now known that FIV positive cats are likely to pass away from another cause than from the FIV itself.  Benton can live a good long life, and would sure love a good home to spend it in.  He's easy going, mellow, and such a good boy.  He gets along fine with other cats and people of all ages.  Please give Benton a chance!  File#28789  3/19/19
