Cat resqued after its elderly owner had move to a nursing home

Animal Rescue League Shelter & Wildlife Center resques cat resqued after its elderly owner had move to a nursing home.

 

They said that, “She suffered from severe matting (dreadlocks, really), the likes of which had been neglected for years, Our Medical team shaved off the pounds of intertwined fur from her body (and) needless to say, this cat is feeling so much better now!”

The cat will be cared for by a distant relative of the previous owner with “a chance at a happy (and) healthy life.”

They also advised to, “Please remember to not only check on the elderly in your community, but also check on their animals to prevent instances like this from happening in the future,”
