Cat found with dreadlocks on her body gets heavy burden shaved off

A cat has been saved for a second time after it was discovered with a heavy amount of mat on its body. 

Western PA Humane Society posted on their Facebook page about how a cat was received by Animal Rescue League Shelter & Wildlife Center after its owner who was an elderly went into a nursing home. 

According to them, she had years of mats and grime which accumulated on its body. 

The post reads, "She will be cared for by a distant relative of the previous owner and have a chance at a happy and healthy life."

They signed it off with a reminder for residents not to look out only for the elderly but for the animals that might get insufficient care from them as well.
