Benicio is a king, and he knows it! This sensitive guy can be a little nervous at first and likes to take his time warming up to new people and surroundings. He’s still learning to mind his kitty manners around potential new friends, but after steady and smooth introductions his lovebug side comes out! Once he’s comfortable sweet Benicio adores attention from his favorite people—and he and won’t let them forget it! Benicio has no qualms with climbing right up on your lap, meowing, and giving little nudges with his paws to ask for pets. He just can’t get enough scratches, on his terms, so don’t be surprised when he leans into your hands to ask for more!

Benicio likes to be the apple of his human friends’ eye and would prefer to be the only cat in the household. He needs an experienced adopter who will give him time and space to adjust to his new surroundings and can live in a quiet household with children ages 14 and up.
