She Spotted An Animal In The Road That Was So Badly Matted, She Couldn’t Even Tell What It Was

“She had pounds of added hair. It was the worst matted cat I have ever seen in my seven years with the shelter,” Linda Goldsmith, head of the Advo-Cat program at SASF, said in a press release. “The mats were so bad, she was unable to walk or hardly move.”

Aside from the matts, the cat, later named Scarlett, was also covered in fleas, ticks and ear mites, and was severely dehydrated and starving. It’s unknown how Scarlett wound up on the streets or how long she’s been alone for, but they believe she is around 15 years old.
