A Phoenix cat owner is facing animal cruelty charges after he brought his cat to be groomed at an animal hospital.
Authorities were called to investigate the condition of the cat and they said the cat was extremely emaciated and dehydrated. Also the cat’s hair was so matted that he could not move and would cry whenever he was handled.
A veterinarian at the animal hospital had the cat euthanized to prevent any more pain to the cat.
The man told authorities that the cat had been in that condition for more than three months. He was booked into county jail for failing to provide food, water, and medical care to his pet.
