BenBen is probably one of the luckiest cats in the world, and we’re going to tell you why.

His life started out pretty rough. He showed up at a shelter with a crushed spine, several deep lacerations, and cauliflower ear. He wouldn’t eat or drink, and veterinarians said that he would likely never walk again.

He wasn’t exactly the happiest kitty in existence.

Look at That Sweet Face

But BenBen avoided euthanization when a woman from an ER vet clinic decided to take a chance on this adorable face – thank goodness!

BenBen now looks like he’s loving life, hanging with his adopted brother, Norman.  It looks like Norman is pretty happy with him, too!

Not only can he now walk, but he’s an exceptionally happy cat! The sad (but very adorable) look is thanks to some extra skin on his face.  It makes him all the cuter, imo.
