2021 Cat’N Around Catskill – Cat #26
“Benny” by Barbara McGeachen
Sponsored by: Dr. Christine M. Scrodanus, OD
Description: Benny is a very much-loved rescue kitten. I have raised him since he was 3 weeks old. On his adoption day at the shelter, it was discovered he had a heart murmur, and he was declared unadoptable. The shelter offered him to me to “foster forever.” So far he is just fine!
