You are looking at a photo of Hidey, the cat. If you can't tell it's a cat, don't worry you are not alone. A Pittsburgh man was visiting the home of an elderly relative with Alzheimer's when he saw something hiding under a bed. It was a strange, terrifying thing that looked like a hairy octopus but when he got closer he realized that the scary thing hiding under the bed was...
...a cat with dreadlock-like hair. This poor cat was trapped by its own fur and barely able to move. It had apparently suffered years of neglect because its owner was suffering a mental illness. On top of the massive amounts of hair, Hidey was also very obese.
The man took the cat, whom he named Hidey for her ability to hide, to the Animal Rescue League shelter where staff immediately began working to free the cat from her horrible situation.
The staff at Animal Rescue League began to shave off the crazy amounts of hair only to discover a beautiful Calico Kitty underneath. Hidey is now able to move and run and play like every other feline. Hidey was placed in a relative’s home and is making incredible progress. We are so happy that Hidey has been given a new chance at life.
