The Story of the “Saddest Cat” Who Got a Second Chance at Life When It Was Ready to Give Up
BenBen, nicknamed the “saddest cat in the world,” had a challenging life. Although the shelter was ready to give up on him, he was rescued by a lovely family that gave him a new start in life. His story proves that good intentions can change lives, and we wanted to share BenBen’s story with our audience.
He was found abandoned on the streets and taken to a shelter.
BenBen’s story started when he was brought to a shelter with injuries. He had been surviving on the streets fending for himself for a long time, but according to the shelter, he was attacked by another animal. The shelter took him in and provided him with the medical help he needed.
A family adopted the healed cat but BenBen was soon brought back to the shelter due to how difficult his medical conditions made it to care for him. He was labeled “un-adoptable,” and the shelter thought he would never walk and would have to rely on pain medicine his entire life.
His condition worsened but a couple saved him.
It was sadly decided by the shelter to give up on BenBen. However, one day before the procedure was scheduled, a couple ended up saving him. “We managed to get everything sorted out the day before...and brought him to his forever home,” said the couple who adopted him.
At the shelter, BenBen had stopped eating and drinking, but in his new home, he immediately transformed. “We sat down with him for about an hour and he was instantly full of purrs, smiles, and ’thank you’ cuddles.”
His new family helped him on his road to recovery.
BenBen’s recovery was instant, and the cat’s life completely changed for the better. Despite the fact that the shelter thought he would never walk again, BenBen is now able to walk normally and “was determined to prove them wrong.”
BenBen is now completely recovered and is enjoying a healthy life. According to his owners, “He’s doing so well! No one who knew him before can believe he’s turned out so awesome.” After going through such a tough life, he is getting the life he deserves!
BenBen now leads a happy and comfortable life.
Despite still having his iconic sad face, BenBen is much happier now. His owners provided another update about him, saying, “He rehabbed through play and treats and wanting to be with the other cats! He’s now this big happy chonky boy and we would not have it any other way!” His story is an important reminder for us to treat all animals with love.
