Man went to check on his elderly relative and thought everything was ok, until he made a chilling discovery!

Cats are low-maintenance pets that are relatively easy to take care of. In addition to being independent, cats are also very loving and affectionate creatures.

Cats make great companions for people of all ages and are a perfect choice for those who are looking for a pet that does not require a lot of time or effort. Cats are the perfect pet for anyone who doesn’t want the hassle of having to walk or bathe them. All they need is a litter box, some food, and a little bit of love, and they’re good to go. Plus, they’re so independent that they don’t even need you to be around all the time.

We often think of cats as being able to look after themselves. In the case of the cat Hedey, her owner was unable to care for her properly and she went without proper grooming for years. When animal rescuers finally got hold of her, she had so many ;dreadlocks’, she looked like an octopus (SEE PHOTO). After the cat’s owner, who suffers from Alzheimer’s, was taken to a nursing home, they spotted Hedey and called Animal Rescue League Shelter and Wildlife Center.

Animal experts thought that Hedey had probably been neglected for up to two years. Some of the ‘dreadlocks’ were 6 to 8 inches long. Jenny, a vet that helped to free Hidey from her matted fur and recorded it in a video she posted on Facebook said, “(Hedey has) the worse matting I have ever seen, she has dreadlocks.” Hedey was sedated for the procedure, to make her more comfortable.

“She suffered from severe matting (dreadlocks, really), the likes of which had been neglected for years,” said a post on the shelter’s Facebook page, according to People. “Our Medical team shaved off the pounds of intertwined fur from her body and, needless to say, this cat is feeling so much better now!” Hedey was re-homed with a distant relative of her former owner. The condition Hedey had could have been prevented with proper care.
