Five pounds of shaved fur later, Sinbad the cat gets new lease on life

Meet Sinbad -- the abandoned Persian cat who won the internet's heart with his amazing recovery story after having five-pounds of matted fur shaved off him by friends at the Anti-Cruelty Society.

The Anti-Cruelty Society is launching a new program that will focus on helping pet owners who can no longer care for their pets. If you are in that situation, you can contact them at: (312) 644-8338 or
