Gentle Ben was not exactly the cat his human friend was looking for, but cats have a way of doing that, don't they?

Love these stories! My uncle took in a black cat he found in a shopping mall parking lot.-nearly frozen to death. He put her in the back seat of his car, went to his vet. The poor thing lost it's tail from frostbite.
Other than that, hey were pals with his 2 dogs for over 10 years.

He's a beautiful cat /so is the other one. You can tell they don't really get along but I'm so happy he has a home.
