Julie Bolchalk from the Arizona Humane Society was shocked when she saw Fluffer’s condition. As someone who has rescued animals for a long time, she had never seen such severe matting on a cat before. Fluffer, a cute grey and white kitty, was left behind by their owner who had passed away and was covered in dirty mats.
The AHS got an urgent call for assistance regarding a pet. However, it was initially challenging to recognize the animal since its fur was severely matted. Julie from AHS then took the pet to their facility, where the staff began preparing to remove its weighty fur.
Although it was a lengthy and uncomfortable process, the cat being groomed behaved exceptionally well and didn’t protest or create any issues. In fact, she was cooperative and composed throughout the entire hour of shaving and grooming. The outcome was remarkable, as they were able to eliminate two pounds of fur, which accounted for a significant portion of the cat’s weight.
AHS staff members expressed their admiration for the cat’s delightful demeanor. They stated that it is uncommon for cats in pain to not need sedation during the procedure, and this cat was exceptional because she was so sweet-natured.
It was at that moment they caught sight of the adorable kitty, who transformed into a stunning creature once her extra fur was removed. They were thrilled and decided to share Fluffer’s story on social media platforms like Facebook and Instagram. The response was overwhelming with hundreds of likes and numerous comments pouring in.
“Wow, that’s so heart-wrenching! I’m grateful to the kind soul who saved this cat’s life,” expressed one commenter, while another added, “This is the saddest thing I’ve ever seen…poor little furball! I hope they find a loving forever home for him soon and teach him what true love is all about!”
And the positive updates don’t stop there for Fluffer! In just two short days since receiving her much-needed grooming session, the resilient feline was adopted by a loving family. Despite the severity of her matted fur, she was in good health and now enjoys a happy life in her forever home.”
Choosing to rescue a stray animal can make a huge impact on its life. It provides them with a new opportunity to live, be cherished and become remarkable. Therefore, if you encounter a stray animal, it would be a thoughtful gesture to relocate it to a secure environment rather than ignoring its plight. After all, every living creature is deserving of affection.
