I just got back from the groomer's to take photos. She called our adoption volunteer twice today to say what a terrible condition the cat was in. The nails were ingrown, the tail was all matted and the fur was in bad shape. Plus the cat is really skinny. She's bathed it twice and she says it's still smelling of defecation. She said she'd probably need to take the whole of today just to do this one cat because he needs to much work.
She said when he passed the cat over it was a carrier which had never been cleaned - when she opened it, cockroaches started running out because the carrier was so filthy. It had layers of newspapers just piled on top of each other in it.
To top it all off, the adopter called me this morning before the cat was even out of the house and asked if he could take another Persian. He said he wants another cat.
I've taken the photos to allow the foster to decide if they want to prosecute. At any rate, I'm definitely calling the guy to give him a piece of my mind now that the cat is safely out.
