Stray cat with matted fur and multiple health issues completely changes appearance after rescue

This poor elderly cat must have spent a very long time wandering outside alone given his state of health. Fortunately, good Samaritans brought him the necessary care for his good recovery. He is now transformed and enjoying his best life.

Lowell TNR Coalition was called in to rescue a stray cat who clearly needed their help. The rescuers therefore set up a humane trap to capture him gently. They then entrusted it to the Merrimack River Feline Rescue Society, a shelter located in Salisbury in the State of Massachusetts in the United States.

The poor animal, named Frisbee, had such matted hair that it was impossible to brush him. He was therefore taken to the veterinarian who clipped his fur under general anesthesia. The full exam revealed that Frisbee also had FIV (a viral infection specific to cats) and stomatitis (inflammation of the oral cavity) which had caused him to lose more than half of his teeth.

Coming home from the clinic, Frisbee was already showing his gratitude by purring and snuggling up to his foster volunteer. For months, she pampered him. The tomcat showed resilience and made his metamorphosis. He regained the pounds he was missing and his growing back fur was silkier than ever.

That’s when Donna Atkins discovered Frisbee’s story on a pet adoption website. “I knew I had to travel an hour and a half to Salisbury to visit him. It was love at first sight, so Frisbee (now called Buffy Boy) came home with us,” Donna explained to Cole And Marmalade.

Since then, the freshly domesticated feline has been living like a king in its new home. He spends his days sleeping, eating and playing with his fellow Baby Cat. “He is so happy to be a pampered cat and it’s thanks to MRFRS! I will send a donation in Buffy’s name and thank them for all they do for those who can’t speak for themselves,» Donna concluded.
