Everyone can relate to having a bad hair day. A cat named Hidey knows all about it.
Hidey's bad hair day probably lasted for years. When people found her, she had 2 pounds of matted fur on her back - about the weight of a pineapple or a small bag of rice.
An elderly man in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, owned Hidey, as well as a Siamese cat named Siam. The man had Alzheimer's disease, and when he'd gotten too ill to live by himself, his family moved him to a nursing home. The cats, unfortunately, got left behind.
Paul Russel, a distant relative of the elderly man, was the first to think of the cats. Well, really, one cat.
"When they put him in the nursing home, I thought, 'Hey, he has a cat,'" Russel told The Dodo. "The house was still open, so I went down and left some food for the cat until we figured out what we're going to do. Then somebody mentioned that he had a second cat. So I started searching around, and suddenly this huge creature darts out from under the bed and runs down to the cellar, and I thought, 'What was that?'"
