It’s not simple to work in an animal shelter. On a daily basis, veterinarians and animal care professionals encounter a variety of situations, both good and unpleasant.
An animal medical technician, Julie Bolchalk, received a call regarding a neglected animal.
She went to Fluffer’s rescue with her Arizona Humane Society team. Her human had passed away and there was no one looking after her.
Julie was taken aback when she saw the beast.
“I’ve seen some pretty horrific cases in my time rescuing animals,” she said, “but I’d never seen matting this bad – it was bigger than her entire body.”
They couldn’t figure out what animal Fluffer was at first.
They couldn’t make out her genuine form because the matting was so awful. The tangled fur was enormous and heavy.
The team had to remove the superfluous fur for an hour.
It was most likely a painful experience for the animal. Fluffer, surprisingly, had no negative reaction. In fact, she acted as if she were a real woman.
“She was quite lovely, and she was groomed without being sedated, which is a miracle.”
They were able to remove 2 pounds of matted hair during the procedure. That’s around a fourth of Fluffer’s entire weight!
The animal’s real beauty was eventually shown after a protracted procedure of shaving.
Fluffer is a feline. She’s also a pretty cute kitty. She has a beautiful face and incredibly soulful yellow eyes. She’s also a patient. She didn’t worry that her cut wasn’t particularly attractive.
Seeing Fluffer in such poor condition might make anyone sad. In fact, it may cause her to become enraged with her human.
Her story, though, was not solely about brutality. It’s more like a tragic love story about losing someone you care about. It was her family in this case.
Fluffer, on the other hand, has a new home!
The vet from the Arizona Humane Society examined the lovely kitty after cutting the tangled fur. They examined her from head to toe to ensure she was healthy and suitable for adoption. And what about the good news? She is in wonderful health!
In just two days, the AHS received over 1,000 likes on Instagram after sharing the cat’s story.
Their Facebook post was also well-received.
Many individuals considered her narrative to be inspiring.
According to one Facebook user:
“What a lovely lady!” I’m so happy she was able to find a home so fast; it’s exactly what she deserved!
Another retorted, ”
“Thank you for saving her and reuniting her with her permanent family!” She’s stunning!!”
There was also this person who was astounded by the shelter’s ability to properly shave Fluffer. She stated, ”
“I’m not sure where you’re going to start grooming that?” Do you begin at the top and work your way down the list? You did a fantastic job of preserving her whiskers!!”
Fluffer was adopted straight after after the shelter’s posts. It came as no surprise to AHS’s Public Relations Manager.
“She’s a darling to the core.”
The story of Fluffer gives me hope. Despite being abandoned, she was able to locate a family who will care for her for the rest of her life.
