At 14 years of age, starving and neglected a senior cat is trapped in a mobile home with 40 other cats and 2 dogs in Yuma, Arizona.
Little more than skin and bones, Ann was taken to the Saving One Life rescue in Chandler, Arizona, weighing a mere 3 pounds and 15 ounces!
A senior cat youth definitely was not on her side, however, rescuers were not about to give up as long as Ann fought for her life.
“Animal hoarding is part of a very serious mental disease, that without treatment will continue to reoccur. In fact, many people who hoard animals, do in fact love their animals, they just become overwhelmed,” Cole and Marmalade share on their website. “They are also in denial that they are overwhelmed so they continue to take in animals and that results in starvation and deaths.”
Of all the animals rescued from the mobile home, Ann was the sickest. She had her matted coat shaved off and was found to be badly anemic. Due to rotting teeth, an infection had entered her bloodstream so they needed to be removed so she could focus on healing.
