Benben cat is one of Vancouvers greatest treasures. A cat, scheduled to be put down due to lifelong medical needs, was rescued by a couple with a heart of gold. They took Benben in and since then have spent a large portion of their free time raising money for other kitties in need.
I’ve had the absolute pleasure of meeting the whole family a few times. Benben paid a visit to VOKRA one unsuspecting day. My girlfriends and I who were doing our “Cat Care” shifts started freaking out. (Celebrity siting for cat people!)
I was so pleased when BenBens family agreed to be part of my project. I originally did the card with no Norman (Benbens adopted brother) in it. But it was too sad so I added him in in the background, about to pounce on Benben. I also did a PNW inspired background, maybe Benben spent the weekend up in a North West Cabin.
