Pittsburgh cat is a complete mess.

December 18, 2016

Unbelievably dreadlocked Pennsylvania cat gets a heavy-duty shave

Human beings who style their hair in dreadlocks need a lot of wax, nimble fingers, and a degree of coiffure neglect

It can be a nice look when done right. 

For a stray Pittsburgh cat to get dreads, Lord only knows what it took to wind up looking like this. The poor animal showed up at Animal Rescue League Shelter & Wildlife Center suffering from "severe matting" and appearing a bit like a Star Wars character or an enormous tarantula.

The shelter shaved a full two pounds of fur off the cat, who was looking good with a fresh cut.

Fortunately, the cat will now be taken into the care of a distant relative of the original owner, who likely failed to hear meowing above Bob Marley's "Natty Dread."

To assist readers in the avoidance of severe matting, please consult our 2017 Beauty & Wellness Guide.
