GETTING TO KNOW HIM
From the heart of a foster mom—Bentley will captivate and capture every bit of compassion and intrigue you can muster. He will challenge you to give him reasons to trust and will reward you with his attention, belly flops and a bond that comes only from a Siamese. His time in rescue having joined us via the CFA breed rescue program has been a reawakening of his personality and characteristics that are inherent with his Siamese background. Bentley is quite vocal and will tell you all about his day. He is food obsessed. Let me repeat that—food OBSESSED. It is a wonderful tool to help build trust and one that must be monitored. He will eat all that is put in front of him, behind him or anywhere within reach. “Scarf and barf” was named for him. You can prevent this with scheduled and monitored feeding.
If you have ever loved and understood a Siamese, you get it. You are the person he needs. Bentley will take time, routine and commitment and is worth every last ounce you have to give. There is no predicting how far he has yet to come. He is quite handsome. Even as his pigmentation changes, he remains a stunning guy. His vitiligo is slow progressing. You can see some loss of color on his face and his paw pads have turned completely pink! His vestibular disease causes him to walk in clockwise circles. The more stressed he is, the faster he trots and the tighter the circle. For him it is a genetic condition and does not progress or make him ill.
His weakness is Churu treats. They will help you to bond they are perfect if he ever needs to be pilled. He also accommodates liquid medication in his food. How easy is that? He has learned that toys are actually fun and loves to caterwaul carrying around his toy mouse kill! Nothing feels better to Bentley than an old-fashioned belly rub. He will throw himself over on the floor and snuggled up tight to you on the couch or bed. Rub-a-dub-dub. Then he will climb into your lap for a little snooze.
If you love the relationship and bond of a Siamese and are willing to invest a lifetime into Bentley, please apply for him. He is currently living with 2 other Siamese, Layla and Matt who have some similar emotional challenges. Bentley does well with either or both, either would be a great pair or even a trio. He would do best with another cat to model and to snuggle with during quiet times.
