Neglected Cat Had Five Pounds Of Matted Fur On Him…

When a maintenance worker went into a client’s basement, he could not believe what he saw.  There living in the cold, damp concrete, was an animal that was so matted and filthy, he wan’t even sure what it was. The animal had long, tangled fur covered in dust, dirt, and debris, and could barely walk.  The cat must have been in excruciating pain.

An elderly man whose mental health was failing owned the house. But the Persian kitty’s luck was about to change. The maintenance worker brought the cat to the Anti-Cruelty Society of Chicago, Illinois.

The  owner knew that he could not take care of his pet, so he let the organization take him. It was the only way to give the poor neglected  kitty the help he so desperately needed.

When he got to the Anti-Cruelty Society, the staff shaved a whopping 5 pounds of fur off his skinny body.

Aside from being a little thin and a little wobbly on his legs after dragging around heavy clumps of fur, the relieved kitty was in decent health. He was named Sinbad.

Much to the staff’s surprise, Sinbad was lovable and friendly. It wasn’t long before he was eating, and even jumping on furniture! Without all that matted fur weighing him down, he probably felt light as a feather.

Sinbad went on to live in a foster home, where his foster dad, Elliot, failed. Elliot fell in love with Sinbad and ended up adopting him!  He couldn’t resist that face and those yellow saucer eyes!

This pretty Persian will never have to worry about being neglected again, he’s got all the love, attention, and will continue to be spoiled for the rest of his life!

We wish the very best to Elliot and Sinbad!
