Hidey, The Cat With Two Pounds Of Matted Fur

The poor kitty Hidey had over two pounds of matted fur! She was suffering from negligence for so long!

Hidey was brought to Animal Rescue League Shelter & Wildlife Center in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Her elderly owner passed away recently. She was suffering from severe matting (dreadlocks). It looks like she was being neglected for years. The medical team shaved off the pounds of intertwined fur from her body, and needless to say, Hidey is feeling so much better now.


This Pennsylvania cat’s holiday will be much lighter and brighter, thanks to a much needed haircut. Hidey, who was hauling around more than two pounds of overgrown fur that had formed into severe mats, got the help that she much needed.

“She suffered from severe matting” says one post on the shelter’s Facebook page on Friday. “Our Medical team shaved off the pounds of intertwined fur from her whole body &, needless to say, this cat is feeling so much better now!”

The kitty will go to a home of a distant relative of her previous owner. She will finally get the proper care, love and attention that she needs. She will finally have a chance at a happy and healthy life. This Facebook post should remind people how important it is to check on the elderly and their animals, so we could prevent things like this from happening to other pets.


She one pretty kitty now. Hidey is going to live a nice and happy life in her new home. She is going to make some new friends and live a long, healthy life. We wish her all the best, she deserves it. It must had been terrible to carry two pounds of fur for such a long time. Now, she is much lighter so probably she is able to move much better and easier.
