Apologize for sharing a sad story here but this really affected me the other day. I went outside to do my daily walk to cornerstore and some cat search/feeding. I heard some meowing from backyard and I saw the big black cat again, but then I looked over and saw what I hope to never have to see again. There was a cat that looked very much like Connie(profile pic) but with shorter hair, if I had to guess id say she was a main coon, but it was hard to tell. She had a really sad meow, and when she saw me she walked over and put her face in the fence. It was then that I noticed something was wrong. Her fur was matted and disgusting looking, almost like it had rust on certain spots, it was obvious she hadn't groomed herself in a LONG time, so I held out the food by an opening in the fence and she aqgain walked into the fence, this time I saw her eyes. Her thiird eye wasn't closed, but her eyes were very milky, and as she kept walking into the fence I woneed if she was blind. I moved the food a little farther and she walked thru opening smelled the fod, meowed and walked away. Then I noticed she had a big clump of u know what hanging from her back leg hair. I go inside and upstairs to get the cat carriwr and go back outside...she was gone, haven't seen her since... I've never seen a cat that looked that close to death before. I immediately went inside and gave Connie some love!
