In Pittsburg, a cat owner went into a nursing home and was unable to care for the cat. The cat went into a shelter and that’s when shelter authorities discovered the cat’s hair had been matted so badly that by the time they shaved the matted hair off, the cat was two pounds lighter.

The kitty, whose name is Hidey, will now be cared for by a distant relative of her previous owner, and according to the post will “finally have a chance at a happy and healthy life.”

If you know of an elderly person caring for a cat, be sure to check in on that elderly person and their cat since they both may need care and attention.
