Neglected cat described as ‘dragging a carpet’ gets lifesaving makeover
An elderly man owned Sinbad the cat but couldn’t take care of him. Instead of reaching out for help, the cat was neglected.
Sinbad was rescued by the Anti-Cruelty Society after growing out five pounds of fur.
The cat was described as “dragging a carpet” by the people who alerted the rescue. And you can see why…
It took hours for shelter workers to shave off all of the matted fur, but the cat stayed cooperative as if he knew it was for the better.
The muscles in Sinbad’s back legs atrophied due to lack of use, but he continued to fight.
Sinbad is now free from the mess of matted fur and living with a foster. With his new diet, the cat will eventually gain some weight and grow back his coat.
It’s a good thing he was rescued when he was — he had to have been so uncomfortable. But Sinbad will never know that neglect again.
Sinbad is on his way to the life he’s always deserved thanks to the hard work of the Anti-Cruelty Society. 😊
