A feline dubbed the ‘saddest cat on the internet’ has found a new lease of life after finally finding a 'forever home'.

Bored Panda reports that the kitty was spending his miserable days at a shelter scheduled to be euthanised. 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 euthanisation 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 kitty walk - he can even run and jump small distances!
