It's Benny's 10th gotcha day!

I admit, I had to look this date up. Jim adopted Benny before I lived in the house. He was a tiny kitten adopted from the local shelter. The story was he was one of a litter born to a stray.

We have few Benny kitten photos, but I've scanned two of them to share. I really like the one of him in the chair with the pink towel. Doesn't he look like he's smiling? Adorable.

Benny is a smart, active boy who loves to play and "invent" new games. When he's tired, he loves to cuddle in our laps and purr, purr, purr. Happy gotcha day, our special Benny-kitty.

Hello from Ringo the Ridiculous

I could only get one photo before he got up (he does that a lot when I get out a camera). He is in the middle of a meow. Hi mom!
