A cat with dreadlocks was thrown into the shelter, like Bob Marley - Wikipet
Unfortunately, the workers of the Nevada animal shelter in the USA have not been surprised for a long time when they find foundlings at the door. But this time, the find simply broke the hearts of the people who discovered it.
Liz, the caretaker at the shelter, and her colleagues, arriving at work in the morning, stumbled upon a pet carrier. There was some huge lump in it. “A tangled coat was just sticking out from everywhere,” Liz said.
Who could it be? Shelter workers first suggested that it was a dog, because, in general, dogs do not look so much like cats. Carry opened. “We could not get him out of her, the animal was in a very uncomfortable position. Therefore, we decided to cut off the upper part of the cage. When we saw that this was a cat, we did not immediately believe our eyes. I have never seen cats in such a terrible state, ”Liz recalls.
The cat was a hostage of its own wool, practically could not move under all these intricate layers. It was evident that from a lack of movement he was suffering from being overweight. His past master most likely just brought him food and water right under his nose.
“We immediately took him to the vet, where he was given a sedative. Then he cut off about two kilograms of wool. With her we were able to completely fill a large trash bag. "
Unexpected freedom immediately forced the cat to rise. Because of the dreadlocks that he wore on himself, he was given the corresponding nickname - Bob Marley.“As soon as the hair was sheared, he began to pace everywhere. He stopped at the table and probably thought that he could have jumped there. And I thought: "No, my friend, it will not work."
Now Bob is already living in a new family, which will help him lose weight and leave behind the memories of people who so shamelessly abandoned him. The ten-year-old cat has his whole life ahead of him. And how cute he was! Bob found his loving hands in just a few days.
The district authorities, meanwhile, are looking for the previous owner of the cat, which was captured on a video surveillance camera the night that Bob was on the porch of the shelter. However, of course, he could not be a villain at all, but only a “messenger” who found the poor fellow and brought him to salvation. It’s hard to say for sure. Liz, for example, has doubts about the good intentions of this person: “If the animal is left at the shelter outside the working hours, then, most likely, everything is not so simple. And this is not at all a good person helping a poor animal. We would really like to know where Bob comes from. After all, other animals may be in the same house in the same terrible state. ”
In any case, the truth will certainly be revealed. And now we can only sincerely be glad that Bob is happy, loved and free from nightmarish tricks.
