    This Cat Found Abandoned At The Side Of A Road Lost All His Fur But Got A Lovely New Jumper

    His transformation is amazing, but for some reason Matt doesn't seem very happy with his new look.

    This is Matt the cat after vets shaved off two carrier bags worth of his matted fur.

    He had been found abandoned in a box on the side of a road in north London. Due to years of neglect, he was so sick when he was discovered that he could barely eat. According to the Telegraph, staff at the Well Animal Clinic in West Hampstead had to feed him with a syringe.

    After he was brought in, vets sedated Matt before removing his thick coat.

    And gave him a fancy blue jumper.

    Which, we're going to be honest, he doesn't look too happy about.

    The jumper was reportedly knitted by the mother of the receptionist at the centre.

    Matt is now being looked after by one of the vets who lives above the centre.

    His coat will apparently take months to grow back. Bet he can't wait.
