13-year-old Blind Cat Survives Life on the Streets, Then and Now!

This is the story of Hammond!

It takes a lot of courage to survive the city streets of just about any city in the world. Now just imagine how hard it must have been for this precious, senior blind cat!

Just take a look at those cute, chubby cheeks!


“He’s a 13 year old bobtail, completely blind, super adorable, and absolutely overlooked at a shelter,” Karyn Poplin of Kitty Adventure Rescue League (a cat sanctuary in Fort Worth, Texas) told Love Meow.

“I went to pick up an older cat (at the shelter), and Hammond was going to be the last one left there for the night, so I brought him home with me too. They were in a small rural, low traffic shelter so the odds of them making it out alive were very low. Hammond was there for about 3 months before I met him!”

Miraculously, Hammond has settled right in and has had no major troubles navigating around his new surroundings! What a fighter!

“He is a very smart feller and seemed to have ZERO adjustment period. His nose and his ears work extra well, so as soon as he heard the food bowl being filled up, he marched right on over to it.”

“He doesn’t mind other cats, but if they get in his way he will bark at them. It’s hilariously adorable.”

5-min (And how he just loves those chubby, adorable cheeks rubbed!)

7-min (And what a cuddler!)

It’s never too late to find true happiness, even if you can’t see it!
