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.

Upon examining Dillion, veterinarians determined that he was born without eyes. However, what happened remains unknown as his condition may have resulted from genetics or ocular herpes.

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.

“He is honestly such a happy cat,” his guardian reports.

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.”
