Oh, Benjamin of the sideways ears. Why are you so endearing?

Benjamin joined our life nearly two years ago, after a slightly frustrating and nearly fruitless search of every rescue organization in town for a cat "just like Patterson." Dave's criteria. Dave's choice. Love at first Benja-sighting.

So what if I wanted the blue-eyed Siamese? Benjamin is our one-of-a-kind, sideways-eared, white-eyebrowed, runs-like-Alf, completely unlike Patterson, loudly opinionated bully who cuddles under the covers whenever it's cold. I wouldn't trade him for the world.

Not even for a blue-eyed Siamese.
