The staff at Douglas County Animal Care and Services are used to receiving calls about abandoned animals.
Recently, however, they received a ʜᴇᴀʀᴛʙʀᴇᴀᴋɪɴɢ call from Liz Begovich, the organization’s supervisor, who one morning found a pet carrier in front of the shelter with a poor cat inside.
The cat’s fur was so messy that they couldn’t see any animals inside at first! The situation was dire. The cat could not move because of its coat and was rather overweight.
Liz took the cat to the vet right away, who immediately shaved off its massive 4.5-pound coat! The staff named the cat Bob Marley and when its fur fell out, it began to move freely.
After years of being abandoned, the cat has a loving home and is recovering. He was adopted in just a few days and is quite handsome as you can see. Authorities are now looking for information on Bob’s previous owner and fortunately, the man who dumped him was caught on CCTV cameras. “We really want to know what happened,” Liz said.
The truth will come out soon. Bob is doing great now here is his ʜᴇᴀʀᴛʙʀᴇᴀᴋɪɴɢ story collection.
Recently, an unidentified man was caught on CCTV leaving an animal transporter in front of an animal shelter.
The shelter staff’s first guess was that it must be a dog, as dogs are generally less fussy about grooming than cats
“We couldn’t turn him around because of the way he was pushed inside the carrier.”
“So we took the top off and thought, ‘Oh my, that’s a cat!’ I’ve never seen a cat in such a state.”
The cat is a ᴘʀɪsᴏɴᴇʀ of its own fur, barely able to move under the tangled coats
“They shaved about 4.5 pounds of his hair. It fills a large kitchen trash bag.”
It turns out the former shaggy-haired cat, who was given the cheeky name of Bob Marley by the shelter, is also severely overweight
The dashing handsome Bob was recently adopted and now has a loving home
