With the owner’s permission, Sinbad was taken in by the Anti-Cruelty Society who - with the help of anaesthetics - shaved away Sinbad’s fur.
Underneath they found a severely malnourished cat. The weight of the matted fur had caused him to lose the use of his back legs, and they were weak.
With careful love and care, Sinbad is now happily recovered, can walk on his own, and is growing his luscious long coat back.
He’s even found a forever home with Elliot Serrano - who works at the animal shelter that helped save Sinbad, and has wasted no time sharing this cheeky kitty’s progress on social media.
