Sometimes when you move in a new home you can find all sorts of strange and frightening things there. When a family from Philadelphia moved into their new house, they started taking things down to the basement. Suddenly the couple spotted a strange-looking creature. Its fur was severely matted and it could barely move. On closer inspection, the unknown to science beast turned out to be a cat, just very severely matted. The poor thing clearly needed help. She was taken in by the animal rescue ACCT Philly.

The poor thing was taken to the vets, and they were horrified by her condition. It was clear that the first thing to do was to cut off all the mats, but the specialists were worried about how the cat would behave during the procedure.

Blake Martin said she looked pretty calm and was grateful to finally be taken care of. Her fur was so matted that at one point the vets had to give her a sleeping pill. It was a long job, but the cat was freed from her fur trap.

Blake decided to become a foster dad for the cat
