A cat with terribly matted fur is dumped at a shelter overnight, in need of help. – Lillise

No one knows for sure where this cat came from, but his condition indicated that he’d been neglected for months, if not years.

Authorities are now on the lookout for answers.

The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office in Nevada has issued a request for the public’s assistance in identifying a man who abandoned the cat in a pet carrier on the front porch of a local animal shelter early one morning last week.

Although the shelter was closed at the time, the incident was caught on video.

Unfortunately, Douglas County Animal Care & Services employees are no strangers to this type of covert animal disposal. They knew what had happened when they arrived at work that morning, a few hours after the man had left.

“Outside our entrance, we noticed a carrier. When it comes to an animal shelter, that typically indicates one of two things: someone has placed their pet on the front doorstep, or the animal has been abandoned “The shelter’s administrator, Liz Begovich, said The Dodo. “So we took the carrier inside and looked around.”

No one could believe what they were seeing.

Begovich claimed, “All we saw was a matted mess.”

Begovich initially mistook the matted thing for a dog. By looking inside, it was difficult to tell.

“Because of the way he was put in the container,” she said, “we couldn’t turn him around.” “So we removed the cover and exclaimed, “Oh my God, it’s a cat!” I’ve never seen a cat in such a bad state.”

The cat’s hair was so tightly encased in his body that he couldn’t move. He’d obviously been living like this for a long time, possibly with someone watching him get enslaved by his huge cloak.

Begovich claimed, “He couldn’t even take a step.” “I’m sure he had his food and drink right in front of him wherever he was; there was just no way for him to move.”

Begovich is hesitant to assume if the guy observed dumping the cat is the person who has been neglecting it for so long, but his refusal to stay and offer any information raises red flags.

“When someone abandons an animal after business hours, there is generally more to the tale. It’s seldom a Good Samaritan who comes to the rescue of an animal on the side of the road “According to Begovich. “We’d love to learn more about the backstory. There might be additional animals in this house who are in the same situation as this cat, regardless of where it originated from.”

Hopefully, the truth will emerge — but at the very least, this kitty was now in excellent care.

“We rushed him to the vet, where he was anesthetized,” Begovich added. “They took off around 4.5 pounds of his hair. It was enough to fill a full-size kitchen garbage bag.”

The cat, who has now been given the name Bob Marley, is no longer bound by his matted bounds.

Removing all that fur, on the other hand, revealed that Bob had a different condition, one that was a little less urgent. He’s overweight, weighing in at 22.6 pounds. However, as soon as Bob was able to move, it was clear that he had transformed into a completely different cat.

Begovich sailed, “Once the hair was out, he was walking around.” “‘I can leap up there,’ he thought as he looked up at the counter. ‘No, you can’t,’ I reasoned.”

But, with any chance, Bob will be able to do so eventually — but he’ll need some help getting there.
