Abandoned by his owners, shelter removes 1lb of matted fur from sweet cat
This poor sweet senior was found brought in by a good Samaritan after they found the cat wandering outside with a mountain of fur on his back.
“This docile boy, 13 years of age and 24 pounds in weight, was suffering from some of the most severe matting on a feline that we have seen in years. His previous owners not only let him roam the neighborhood, but then left him behind when they moved away,” the Nevada SPCA shared on their Facebook page.
“Buttercup knew his caretakers wanted to help him and he held still and let them shave away years of accumulated knots and giants matted folds. Under all of this, his skin was in poor, flaky condition. With premium food and special skin oils, Buttercup's skin is improving significantly every day.”
“Buttercup loves being held in gentle arms or cuddling up in cozy cat beds. He is great with other sweet cats.”
The story gets better, because Buttercup has since been adopted!
He’s now happy and loved in his forever home.
Share the cute!
