Cat Covered In Matted Fur Looks UNRECOGNIZABLE After Being Rescued

Staff at Chicago’s Anti-Cruelty Society couldn’t believe their eyes when the little guy came in pulling five pounds of matted fur behind him “like a carpet.” He’d belonged to an old man who was no longer able to care for himself, much less an animal. But despite his situation, the cat was still incredibly friendly.

After the owner gave Sinbad to the shelter, the staff shaved him down and found a tiny, cute cat hidden under all of that fur.

They estimate that Sinbad is about nine, and he weighs less than seven pounds, meaning that the shaving cut his weight almost in half.

“We had to force feed him for a bit to make sure his digestive system would keep working and not hurt his kidneys,” the staff said.

Elliot took Sinbad home just for the weekend, but on the second day at his foster home, Sinbad had a different idea.

Elliot knew that after that, he couldn’t part with his sweet Sinbad.

At this point Sinbad has made a full recovery, and considering his age and what he’s experienced, he’s impressively spunky and friendly.

And even with his bad experiences, he continues to be loving and trusting.

“It’s a lesson we could all learn.”
