His name is Hammond. This little guy was born with those chubby cheeks and a strong heart. He survived living on the streets completely blind before he was found and taken into the shelter.

Hammond the cat and his 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!"

Despite being completely blind, Hammond can navigate around the house effortlessly!

"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."

Handsome looking guy!

He and one of the resident cats are inseparable friends.

"Brutus is the 18 year old cat he was saved with (the black and white one) and they are best buds. They're never far apart from each other!" Poplin told Love Meow.

Nothing makes him happier than getting some cheek scratches.
