Meet Ben Franklin-the sad looking cute cat. He currently lives in the Animal Welfare Society in Milford, Connecticut. He came there in June 2021, after his owner passed away. He was a little nervous but everyone fell in love immediately with his unique look.
He is crossed-eyed and therefore he has a sad-looking face. But it didn’t seem to affect him at all. It also has made him look so adorable to everyone who looks at him. “We noticed his crossed eyes right away and thought they were so cute,” Crystal, a staff member said. “Ben has seen our vet, and there was no concern about his eyes.”
People might think that his eyes would get in the way of him getting adopted. But it is actually the opposite. He gets a lot of love from the potential adopters, but the only thing matter is he is not as cuddly or outgoing as people want. Now he is been waiting for over a year for someone to finally adopt him. “Ben’s ideal home would be quiet with someone patient and understanding,” Crystal said. “He would be okay with another easygoing cat that will respect his space and not want to play but would prefer a home without dogs or small children. Even though Benjamin requires a special home, we know there is someone out there for him!”
He is also on a special diet which is medicated and he will need his new family to keep him on. His friends at the shelter say that he is a little standoffish currently and it’s because the shelter life is a little tough for him. Once he is settled into his new home, they hope that he will be able to relax and chill as he used to.
