Poor Cat Was Rescued From Neglect And Relieved From The Burden Of Having Two Pounds Of Tangled Fur Removed

Poor Cat Was Rescued From Neglect And Relieved From The Burden Of Having Two Pounds Of Tangled Fur Removed

Cats are often seen as independent animals who can take care of themselves. They usually spend long periods outside, only coming back to eat and groom themselves, making them relatively easy to care for. However, some cat breeds have fur that requires regular grooming, and if this grooming is neglected, it can lead to messy situations.

In the case of Hidey the cat, her owner was unable to give her the grooming she needed, resulting in years of neglect. Hidey was in such a terrible state that the rescuer initially mistook her for a cat hidden under a blanket. He compared the situation to a scene from the sci-fi movie Alien. The man, who came to check on his elderly relative’s cat, was unaware of the existence of a second creature in the house. He couldn’t identify the mysterious animal lurking in the same dwelling.

“Out from under a bed it darted,” Paul Russell told PEOPLE. “At first I thought it was a cat that had a blanket on top of it. The next day I went into the creepy old cellar and it was hunkered in a corner. I thought, ‘My god this is a cat?!’ ”

Upon discovering Hidey, the 14-year-old neglected cat known for her hiding tendencies, a compassionate couple from Churchill, Pennsylvania, took both cats under their care. They then scheduled an appointment at the Animal Rescue League Shelter & Wildlife Center, where the staff worked to remove the tangled fur that had accumulated over the course of several years on Hidey’s body.

The Russells, who gave the cat her name and mentioned that her previous owner has Alzheimer’s disease and is no longer aware of her surroundings, believe that the mats were partially caused by Hidey’s inability to properly groom herself due to her obesity. Since her rescue, Hidey has become a symbol, highlighting the importance of keeping an eye on the well-being of elderly individuals and their pets.

“The companionship of a pet can bring many positive benefits to the elderly, however, owning a pet is big responsibility,” said Dan Rossi, CEO of the Animal Rescue League Shelter. “If a family member, friend or neighbor has a pet, please help them to make sure there is a support system in place if the mental faculties begin diminishing.”

When Hidey was found, her owner had been moved to a nursing home because of Alzheimer’s disease. The rescuers brought her to the Animal Rescue League Shelter and Wildlife Center in Pittsburgh to seek help. They believed that the unfortunate cat had been left behind and neglected for as long as two years, resulting in the formation of dreadlocks in her fur that reached a length of 6 to 8 inches.

Dr. Yaelen Levitzki, a veterinarian who assisted in the process of freeing Hidey from her tangled fur, captured the entire experience on a video shared on Facebook. She expressed, “I’ve never seen such extensive matting in a cat. Her fur had formed into dreadlocks.”

To make sure that the cat was comfortable throughout the procedure, Hidey was given sedation.

“She suffered from severe matting the likes of which had been neglected for years,” the shelter wrote. “Our Medical team shaved off the pounds of intertwined fur from her body &, needless to say, this cat is feeling so much better now!”

Once freed from that burden, the cat was moved to live with a relative of his previous owner.

Jazzy Reunites with his Dad After Seven Years and Several States Away

Jazzy Reunites with his Dad After Seven Years and Several States Away

When dog parents lose a pup that’s gone missing for a year or more, they often give up on the search. But sometimes truths prove stranger than fiction, as was the case with Jazzy, recently found abandoned in a hotel room by the Orange County Animal Shelter in Florida.

“She had a bad case of arthritis, but was extremely sweet and gentle and allowed us to care for her as best we could.” The organization said in a Facebook post. “We knew in her condition she’d be hard to find a home for. People line up outside our doors for puppies and small dogs; seniors always get overlooked and ignored.”

However, in Jazzy’s case, she had been microchipped. They located her original owners, a family residing in Texas.

“When we called them, we gave them the surprise of a lifetime. The organization said. “You see, Jazzy was 12 years old, and she had been five when she had gotten spooked by fireworks and run away.”

After years of searching, Jazzy’s owner Kerry hopped on a plane to get his dog back.

“It was a tearful reunion, and it was incredible to watch Jazzy come to life at her owner’s voice,” the organization said. “Kerry was overjoyed and regaled us with stories about her. And Jazzy couldn’t take her eyes off him. She licked his hand and inched her body as close as she could to him.”
