A man in Pittsburgh named Paul Russell, recently made an unexpected discovery while visiting the home of his 82-year-old distant relative. His relative has Alzheimer’s and had recently moved to a nursing home, so Paul was at the house gathering some things for the relative and sorting the place out. That’s when he heard a noise.
Paul described the moment as being like something out of the movie Alien. He knew there was some kind of creature in the house, but he wasn’t sure what it was. That’s when he spotted this:
Now Paul says Hidey is doing well. “She was originally hiding under the bed in her new home,” he wrote, “but now is snuggled on a warm cat bed on an open floor. She also begins purring while being held.”
The Animal Rescue League ended their post with some helpful advice to prevent situations like this: “Please remember to not only check on the elderly in your community, but also check on their animals to prevent instances like this from happening in the future.”
