Chrissy - Trapped in A Prison of Fur



The unbelievably horrific shape of this cat that was found as a stray prompted the Plainfield Police Dept. to call the AHS as an emergency alert. The cat was extremely calm when the Animal Control Officer picked her at 8 p.m. and brought her back to the Associated Humane Societies' Newark facility.

She was held captive in a tightly bound mass of fur. Throughout the mass of fur were twigs, leaves, dirt that had woven its way to make her life a living hell and restricted her movement. The first order of business was to remove the hardened mass that had been her burden.

It was astounding that during the entire process of extricating her from this shell, she required no anesthesia to make the process less frightening. She must have realized that the work being expended was an effort to release her from her bonds and she welcomed the attention and the slow tedious job. A donation here will help us to continue to help the many needy animals that come through our doors.

We call her Chrysalis -- which means an enclosed hard case that protects a moth or butterfly. Her personality is of a loving, affectionate cat who would love to be loved -- not crazy about being held in your arms at this point. Chrysalis is still new to bonding.

The fur coat she was wearing is now off and she is waiting for a meowvelous new life. For more information, call the AHS at 973-824-7080 or e-mail us and refer to File 125382.
