Caring for a cat or a dog needs a lot of love and patience, which isn’t always possible for senior pet owners.
“Our Humane Investigators received a report regarding a cat that appeared to be “dragging a carpet” and was living with an elderly gentleman. Sinbad’s appearance should have come as no surprise given the gentleman’s inability to care for himself. Nonetheless, it was awful on a number of levels.”
“Sinbad was nice and tolerant despite his disability…”
“…particularly as shelter staff took on the mammoth process of shaving what had collected over several years of matted fur.” 5 lbs of it!”
“It took hours, but the small guy did an outstanding job. Despite the fact that his back legs had atrophied due to lack of use, he persisted.”
“Now he’s getting a lot of attention and TLC.” Sinbad’s food is being closely watched, with the goal of assisting him in gaining weight and regaining his gorgeous coat!”
What a miraculous transformation!
