Mona - Trapped in Her Fur, Now Free and Happy



When Mona was brought in for elective euthanasia by her owner, it was the first time we had ever seen a huge matted cat that size.

Mona, before being shaved.

She was so badly tangled that it prevented her from walking or bodily functions. We advised the owner that we would not euthanize – that we would take care of her so she could have a full, pleasant life. The woman insisted she had given the 5-6 year old cat a good home since she had adopted her in 2006.

The Society’s veterinarian sedated Mona and she was then shaved down. The rear portion of her body was filled with large clumps of matted feces and after she was shaved, the skin was red and raw in the area. Because the heavy mats prevented her from normal movements, the girth of her body was from fat …. not from hair. She weighed in at 19 ˝ pounds and only 2 ˝ pounds was matted, filthy fur.

Getting a much-needed bath!

Now that she is free from the imprisonment of her fur, Mona will be a quiet, well-mannered meowvelous friend to a caring, responsible purrrrrson. (Newark-Medical).

Now all she needs is a loving home!
