Benjamin the Loyal: Ben is the most overtly loving of our cats but also the most ornery, he is a cat of extremes, highly emotional and demanding. If I am unwell he will lie on the bed beside me with a paw resting on my arm and stay with me until I am better. He will chase the other cats off in a proprietary huff if he feels they are interfering with his doctoring duties.

As much as Ben adores me he is ultimately his papa’s boy and the lovefest begins the moment Robert enters a room. Ben will literally throw himself on his back presenting his tummy for stroking and will accept nothing but full attention and praise. Any perfunctory pets will be met with a disapproving nip, although he is quick to forgive these slip-ups.
