Does your heart just break to see a cat with that many mats in its fur? Believe it or not, there is a cat under that fur. Sinbad, the nine-year-old Persian had five pounds of extra fur dragging behind him. The staff at The Anti-Cruelty Society in Chicago were understandably shaken to see how overgrown his fur was.
Sinbad had trouble moving and was very weak. Sinbad was found living in the home of an elderly gentleman.
The man could barely take care of himself, so, Sinbad suffered too. The man willingly surrendered Sinbad. The staff went to work.
It took hours of grooming to get all the mats shaved off. Sinbad never complained once! It was as if he knew they were helping and he was ready to be rid of the dirty fur.
After getting all the extra fur off, Sinbad simply wanted to curl up in someone’s lap. He probably hasn’t been able to curl up for some time.
At first, Sinbad had no appetite. But within a week, Sinbad was back! Sinbad went home with Elliot for the weekend.
But Sinbad figured he had a good thing going and chose Elliot to be his new human dad! Elliot was powerless!
Who could resist a kitty that crawls on your chest and starts to chirp and purr? I am happy Sinbad found a good home and is on the road to recovery.
I hope Sinbad’s original owner got some help too. Sounds like he needed some.
