Like many homeless animals, Dillion’s life started off as one of day-to-day struggle. At a young age, he was already on the streets trying to survive – a feat made more difficult for him because of his blindness.
After four months on the streets, the Animal Rescue League of Boston (ARL) managed to rescue this adorable kitten and brought him to their shelter for care and a chance at adoption.
Not long after his arrival at ARL, Dillion found a forever home. A former ARL employee and dedicated foster parent immediately took to with Dillion, calling it “love at first sight,” as reported on Kitty Army.
Since finding a safe, loving home, Dillion has adapted to a leisure indoor life beautifully.
“He is constantly surprising us. Things we thought he would never do, like get up on furniture and run around the house, he has completely mastered. He hardly ever bumps into anything, as he has mapped out every inch of our place and knows it by heart. Even when we move furniture around, it doesn’t phase him. He’s used to it in seconds — his memory must be so sharp,” Dillion’s guardian writes on Kitty Army.
What’s more, Dillion is enjoying his new life to the very fullest, always looking to challenge himself and have fun.
“He is honestly such a happy cat,” his guardian reports.
Dillion really loves spending time with his family…
…and taking cat naps…
…especially under the covers.
He also can’t resist a good photo-op…
or giving out little cat kisses.
What’s more, he never forgets to stop and smell the roses…
…do a little stretch…
…and embrace a whole new day with a smile.
As Dillion’s guardian writes, “He is undoubtedly inspiring for so many reasons. He is positive, curious, brave, and completely unrestrained by his lack of sight. We learn so much from him every day, and he constantly reminds us to appreciate the little things in life.”
What an amazing cat!
