He quickly adapted to the indoor life, showing himself to be very good-natured and affectionate! Big Ben enjoys the company of children, other cats, and does not seem to mind small dogs. He is neutered, up-to-date on his vaccinations, and tested negative for both feline leukemia and feline immunodeficiency. If you would like to give this sweetie pie a "furever" home, stop by Animal Lifeline at 1111 Easton Rd, Warrington or call 215-343-5050.
