Cats are frequently thought to be self-sufficient. Most cats spend their days outside alone, only returning home to eat and clean themselves, making them relatively low maintenance.
However, some cats have the type of fur that demands grooming, and if you don’t keep up with it, it can grow out of hand.
In the instance of Hidey, her owner was unable to adequately care for her, and she went years without regular grooming.
When animal rescuers found her, she had so many ‘dreadlocks’ that she resembled an octopus.
After the cat’s owner, who suffers from Alzheimer’s, was taken to a nursing home, they spotted Hidey and called Animal Rescue League Shelter and Wildlife Center, in Pittsburgh.
Animal experts thought that Hidey had probably been neglected for up to two years. Some of the ‘dreadlocks’ were 6 to 8 inches long.
Jenn Levitzki, a vet that helped to free Hidey from her matted fur and recorded it in a video she posted on Facebook said, “(Hidey has) the worse matting I have ever seen, she has dreadlocks.”
Hidey was sedated for the procedure, to make her more comfortable.
“She suffered from severe matting (dreadlocks, really), the likes of which had been neglected for years,” People said, citing a post on the shelter’s Facebook page.
“Our Medical team removed the pounds of interwoven fur from her body, and this kitty is feeling so much better now!”
Hidey was placed with a distant relative of her previous owner.
The condition Hidey had could have been prevented with proper care.
This story reminds us of the importance of keeping up with our elderly neighbors and their pets.
Please share as a reminder to keep a look out for our elderly neighbors and family.
If you have elderly neighbors, it is nice to pop in and say hello once and a while – not only to check on them but to see that their pets are okay too.
You never know if they’re struggling unless you ask.
Share away, people.

I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the layout of your
blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
But maybe you could a little more in the way of
content so people could connect with it better. Youve got
an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 pictures.
Maybe you could space it out better?

Hello i am kavin, its my first time to commenting anywhere,
when i read this piece of writing i thought i could also make comment due to this sensible article.
Saved as a favorite, I like your blog!
A motivating discussion is definitely worth comment. I do think
that you should write more about this topic, it may not be a taboo subject but typically people don’t talk about these issues.
To the next! Best wishes!!
