Sandy fell in love with BenBen's adorable face and sweet disposition, and kept tabs on him even after he left the emergency vet clinic where she works. When she told her boyfriend about the quirky cat who'd stolen her heart, he quickly fell in love too.
"My girlfriend and I have a soft spot for animals that aren't ... normal," Adam, BenBen's new dad, told The Dodo. "When I first saw a picture of him at the shelter I said to her, 'We need him.' He broke our hearts in every conceivable way. We believed that he needed a chance to live a life."
