In December 2016, The Anti-Cruelty Society of Chicago received a phone call about a Persian cat.
The Persian cat named Sinbad was living alone in an elderly man’s basement and was trapped in his own fur.
Sinbad was unable to move because of the extra fur. The shelter staff members rescued the cat.
Elliott Serrano brought Sinbad to his home but soon decided to adopt the cat.
“Sinbad came into our shelter after a utility worker saw him in the home of an elderly gentleman.
The man wasn’t able to care for himself very well, and that was evident in Sinbad’s condition,” Elliott Serrano, Sinbad’s new owner, told Love Meow.
“He was so tolerant and sweet during the grooming which was grueling. It took hours,”
“Once free of the mats he just wanted to lie down on somebody’s lap or in his bed.”
“We had to force feed him for a bit to make sure his digestive system would keep working and not hurt his kidneys.”
“Now he’s getting lots of TLC and attention. His diet is being monitored and the goal is to help Sinbad gain weight and grow back his glorious coat!”
Sinbad’s condition improved and now he is totally unrecognizable. The new pictures of Sinbad will leave you in awe as its transformation is incredible.
“He has recovered very well and for a cat of nine years, after going through what he has, is very friendly and frisky.”
His new owner Serrano said: “I’m just astounded at how he just loves people, even though people haven’t always treated him very well. It’s a lesson we could all learn.”
