BenGosport Town

Handsome, gentle Ben is around 10 years old and a real lover of attention. His favourite pastime is to cosy up to his fosterer and have tummy rubs, whilst kneading the air with his front paws. A large, cuddly boy, we are looking for a quieter home where Ben will receive the affection he craves. Initially scared at moving into care, Ben has grown in confidence and begun to play with toys and use his cardboard scratcher, particularly with a little added catnip! Although short-haired, Ben’s coat is deep and luxurious and he enjoys a good groom with a soft brush.

Ben is neutered, microchipped and had his first vaccinations. Although he has previously lived with dogs, cats and children, we feel he will be happier as an only pet in a mature home where he’ll have plenty of company.

Ben is being cared for in the Ben Potter Memorial pen which has been generously funded as a memorial to Ben Potter by his wife Ruth, daughter Donna and son-in-law Paul. A former Gosport CP cat, Seti, became Ben's constant companion during his illness and following Ben’s death in 2017 his family felt a new foster pen would be a fitting memorial. The family are long term supporters of Gosport CP and this special foster pen will enable the charity to care for more cats and give them the chance of a happy new home.
