Recently the folks at Douglas County Animal Care & Services in Gardenville, Nevada met a heartbreaking case. One morning when the shelter supervisor Liz Begovich and her collegues came across an animal carrier with a huge ball of unidentified fluff inside. “All we saw was a matted mess.” – said Liz.
The staffs wondered what could this poor creature be. They first guessed it was a dog since it have so much hair. “We couldn’t turn him around because of the way he was shoved in the carrier.” – Liz said. After Liz and the staffs took the top off and they were all surprised. “Oh my god it’s a cat!”
Sadly, the cat was in a very bad condition. He was a prisoner of his own fur, he’s barely able to move around under the tangled, matted layers. And he was also overweight due to lack of exercise.
Liz and the staffs immediately took him to the vet. “They shaved about 4.5 pounds of hair and it filled a full-size kitchen trash bag.” The sudden freedom immediately lifted the cat’s confidence. They named him Bob Marley because his fur was dreadlocked.
Luckily, Bob now has a loving home, who can help him recover from years of neglect. After the shaving, Bob became such a handsome boy and was adopted within a few days.
The authorities are still curious about Bob’s previous owner. The man who left him at the shelter was captured on CCTV and the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office is asking for the public’s assistance. They have a concern that at Bob’s old house, there might be some more pets that are in the same condition with Bob, and need help.
Either way, the truth will surely emerge eventually. The main thing is Bob is now happy, loved and well-taken care of by good people.
The man who dropped the poor cat at the shelter.
The cat came in a condition that broke everyone’s hearts who witnessed there…
Behind the messy fur, it is the appearance of a true prince.
As for the previous owner, some people came to defend the man that was caught on tape.
However, still, there are people who don’t buy this.
Either of this, we all love and feel sorry for Bob for what he had been through. There are still the good in people, that save Bob from his tragedy.
