    Default Saddest cat in the world' smiling again after 'death row' rescue

    Couple Adopts ‘Saddest Cat’ In The World Nobody Wanted, Here’s How Kitty Transformed In One Hour

    2 days ago by​ Elizabeth



    Meet BenBen, the saddest cat on the Internet. The kittie was spending his miserable days at a shelter scheduled to be euthanized. He had a crushed spine, several deep lacerations, and a cauliflower ear. BenBen must have been attacked by some big animal. He has excess skin on his face, which makes him always look sad. The shelter workers said it was as if BenBen knew he was going to be dead soon, and he wouldn’t eat, drink, or even move.
    But then a big-hearted woman who works for an ER vet clinic decided to adopt him. “We managed to get everything sorted out the day before his scheduled euthanization and brought him to his forever home, ” the kind lady told LoveMeow.
    As soon as BenBen arrived at their home, he made an incredible transformation just within an hour! “He was instantly full of purrs, smiles, and ‘thank you’ cuddles, ” says the owner. “I like to think he knew he was safe and had his forever home at that moment.”
    Although the vets said BenBen would never walk again, not only can the kittie walk – he can even run and jump small distances! ‘The saddest cat’ turned out to be a really happy kittie!

    BenBen, the saddest cat in the world, was spending his miserable days at a shelter scheduled to be euthanized


    He had a crushed spine, several deep lacerations, and a cauliflower ear


    BenBen must have been attacked by some big animal


    On top of that, he has excess skin on his face, which makes him always look sad


    It was as if BenBen knew he was going to be dead soon, and he wouldn’t eat, drink, or even move


    But then a big-hearted woman who works for an ER vet clinic heard about BenBen


    She immediately knew she had to adopt him and act fast to save the kittie’s life


    “We managed to get everything sorted out… and brought him to his forever home”


    As soon as BenBen arrived at their home, he made an incredible transformation just within an hour!


    “We sat down with him for about an hour and he was instantly full of purrs, smiles, and ‘thank you’ cuddles”


    “I like to think he knew he was safe and had his forever home at that moment”


    Altough the vets said BenBen would never walk again, not only can the kittie walk – he can even run!


    BenBen is still on his pain medicine, however, ‘the saddest cat’ turned out to be a really happy kittie!

    Nice, feel good story after this crappy week, month, year, etc. I have a soft spot for orange tabbies but Ben Ben is especially cute!

    I love Ben Ben! Sweet kitty. And you know he's purring up a storm in that "after" picture.

    LOVE this story.

    Got my own new little guy snipped today. He's groggy as hell and looks drunk, but he's coming along great.

    I love to hear these rescue stories with happy endings.

    Update from his owners, apparently Ben Ben likes hamburgers

    and Ben Ben and his favorite (or favourite as he's Canadian) sleep companion.

    My little fella was so funny when he came home from his trip to the vets to be snipped. Older cat was concerned (guess he smelled like the vet?) so was sniffing him and licking him. She got to his back end and Bucky startled - turned around and backed into the carrier It was hilarious. Like "NOPE! No no no noonononononnoooo. Safe space!"
