Caturday: Here’s Looking At You, Kid

This is Ben. He is a half-sphynx, half-Norwegian Forest, and it’s obvious he got the hair gene. This guy is one of the most affectionate cats I’ve ever been around, so much so he is up for belly rubs. Yes, he enjoys belly rubs and does not turn into a whirling dervish of X-acto blades like many cats when you try to give them a belly rub. He just soaks up the affection, doing his extremely loud purr.

He also sounds like he is asking a question when he meows. Pretty much a complete package. Here he is in our cat tree, surveying his world and quietly willing you to come over and scratch his ears.
