PITTSBURGH — A cat who’d been neglected by her owner with Alzheimer’s disease was found with fur matted so badly it had become dreadlocks.

On December 16, the Animal Rescue League Shelter in Pittsburgh posted these outrageous photographs to Facebook of a cat in desperate need of a cut. The cat’s elderly owner had Alzheimer’s disease, and last week, his family had him moved to a nursing home, deeming him unable to safely care for himself. Unfortunately, he forgot his two pet cats behind.

Paul Russel, a distant relative of the elderly man, showed up to leave some food out for the one cat he knew about. Walking around the house, he saw something raggedy bolt out from under the bed, and down to the cellar. Using a flashlight, Russel searched around until he spotted a cat, covered in matted fur that weighed in at roughly 2 pounds. 

When Paul Russel brought the cat into the vet, they anesthetized her so the long overdue fur-cut could finally commence. Now freed of her unwanted fur coat, the cat, whose name is Hidey, now has a new home with the man who saved her.

i love cats...... i cant believe this
There an abandoned cat were I live somebody just left there cat behind. I can not stand people who get and pet then leave them when they move. This poor cat is waiting for its owner to come back. I want to take him or her with me but not shore if he or she would stay with me. If people don't want there pets any more then they shouldn't have gotten a pet a first place or give to someone who wants it.

So, all Rastafarians smoke weed? And it’s a “Rasta” cat because it’s fur got matted? Lol

“Oh that dog should be put to sleep!”
“That dog is a vile animal that needs to be killed!”
“I hate dogs because of this.”

First of all, suck it up buttercup. It’s nature. Everything will do what it needs to survive. Even you. Secondly, you’re just contradicting yourself. You’re saying, “Oh that poor cat deserved to live but the dog doesn’t.” So if a cat attacked a dog, the cat can still live? No. If the dog isn’t tame, there is nothing we can do about it. It’s instinct. So if you can’t understand that, then come back to school and learn the food system. 🤦🏻‍♀️

I have 3 dogs and one night my cat got outside and didn’t come back so the next morning I was woken up from my sister saying the cat was dead because my 2 of the 3 dogs got to it and killed. So yeah it happens with nature
