What would you do if you entered a house and a weird looking animal jumped out at you? Would you be scared? I know I would. This is what happened to Paul Russel when he decided to visit the home of one of his relatives who is suffering from Alzheimer and he was left in shock after seeing something that looked like a mutant beast roaming around.
20. Paul Russel
The man we are seeing in this picture is Paul Russel and today’s story is going to revolve around one of the worst moment of his life. Everything started when Paul wanted to visit the home of one of his relatives who suffer from Alzheimer. I need to warn you that the animal that Paul saw in that house might give you nightmares!!
19. Diagnosed with Alzheimer
Paul has an 82-year-old relative that is diagnosed with Alzheimer. This means that the man is not able to take care of himself anymore and that his memory is fading away. This is why Paul’s family sent the man to a retirement home. Sadly, the retirement home had one rule that made this transaction difficult.
18. No Pets Allowed
The retirement home didn’t allow any pets. This was difficult because the relative with Alzheimer had a cat back home which helped him cope with his problems. This was a problem from the start because the elderly are not advised to own pets and you won’t believe why.
17. Caring for Pets
Even though owning a pet is great for company, the elderly usually have a hard time taking care of themselves. This means that the pets are not taken care off as well, especially by someone who is diagnosed with Alzheimer. Therefore, the 82-year-old relative had to leave his cat at home. However, that is not the only animal that the man had in his house!!
16. The Old House
Now that the elder was moved into a safe retirement home, Paul knew that he needed to go back to his home and get his cat from there. Paul surely was not ready for what was about to happen.
Paul’s relative owned a small cat named Siam. Paul knew that he needs to go and take her from the old house because no one is going to look out for her. What’s amazing is that Paul had no idea what he was going to find inside that old house.
14. Big Family
Paul had a big family and he was more than willing to take Siam in. His kids would love playing with her and Siam would be happy to have a new home. After making sure his family wanted Siam, Paul headed to the old man’s house. You won’t believe how the house looked.
13. Abandoned House
The house was not in a good state, it looked abandoned. The first thing that caught Paul’s attention wasn’t the mess, but the fact that there were tiny scratches all around the walls. This meant that Siam is somewhere around, but Paul had no idea that Siam wasn’t alone!
12. Luring Siam
The house was a mess and Siam was nowhere to be found. This is when Paul had the great idea to put a bowl of food for Siam and lure the cat out. This is when Paul heard a weird growl coming from upstairs. Paul knew that had to be Siam and rushed straight towards the noise.
11. Siam is Safe
Paul found Siam curled in the bathtub. The poor cat was starving. Fortunately, Paul found her and she was finally safe. On the downside, this is when Paul heard another animal growl! Who could it be if Siam was in his arms?
10. The Basement
As if things couldn’t get worse, the noise came from the basement. Paul was scared and he didn’t know if he had the courage to venture down. However, Paul took a moment and calmed down, and then he started descending into the basement…
9. Getting Scared
The road down was dark, and the growling sound started getting worse. When Paul got close to reaching the bottom of the stairs he saw something moving! This scared Paul and he ran out of the house. Something was there. What could it be? The next day Paul decided to take a flashlight and to go down again. You won’t believe your eyes what he found.
8. Weird Animal
Paul mustered up his courage and went down the basement with a flashlight. This is the terrific thing he saw! Despite this creature looking like a mutant, Paul didn’t run away. After a couple of minutes passed, Paul realized this creature was actually a cat covered in its own fur. What do you think Paul did next?
7. Straight to the Vet
Paul took the terrific looking cat and rushed it to the vet. He knew that something was not right and that his relative with Alzheimer probably forgot about her. Paul even decided to name the cat, he called her Hidey because she was able to hide from everyone for such a long time.
6. Overweight Cat
Everyone was shocked to see how bad Hidey looked, but this was not her fault. Cats have problems with obesity and Hidey got so big that she wasn’t able to groom herself anymore. Therefore, the extra hair started to mat. Fortunately, the vets found a clever way to remove the hair.
5. Getting a Haircut
The vets didn’t waste any time and they shaved Hidey’s extra hair straight off. Can you guess how much hair they took off? The hair weighed two pounds! Now that’s a heavy load. The only problem left now was finding Hidey a home.
4. New Home
Paul decided to do an amazing thing and he took Hidey into his home, alongside with Siam. His family just got bigger. Things started looking better for Hidey now that she had a home and a loving family. Scroll down to see how comfortable Hidey feels in Paul’s home.
2. Feeling Like Home
After years of struggling by herself, Hidey was finally feeling loved. It took a couple of days before Hidey felt comfortable around the home, but now she is a full-on member of the family.
1. Sleepy Cat
Paul got Hidey her own bed so that she wouldn’t have to sleep on the floor ever again. Also, Paul said that Hidey is enjoying herself by sleeping and eating all day long…
