A rescue cat in Pennsylvania is two pounds lighter after receiving a much-needed haircut. Hidey was brought to the Animal Rescue League Shelter and Wildlife Center in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Her owner had gone into a nursing home, and Hidey was in desperate need of some care.
Hidey suffered from severe matting which had gone unchecked for years. This matting gave the cat the appearance of having dreadlocks. Staff at the rescue shaved the extra hair from Hidey, giving her a fresh start at life.
Hidey will be cared for by a distant relative of her previous owner. She’s much more comfortable without her two pounds of excess fur, and we hope she loves her new home.
