Jan. 25 (UPI) -- A kitten in Oxford, England was found in a tight spot after its love for peanut butter left its head stuck inside a jar.
A concerned citizen contacted the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals after finding the tiny black-and-white kitten trapped in the peanut butter jar.
"The kitten had his head completely stuck inside a plastic pot of peanut butter. When I arrived, he was lying in a heap on the grass with frost covering his fur – he couldn't move at all," RSPCA inspector Jaime Godfrey said.
Godfrey wrapped the kitten, which was believed to be about 6 months old, in a towel while he carefully cut the jar off its head.
He then inspected the frightened feline for any cuts or scratches but found the kitten was uninjured before it scurried away to freedom.
"As soon as the cat was free, he ran away very fast. He was obviously shaken up by his experience," Godfrey said. "Thankfully, this cat was OK following his ordeal, but he might not have been so lucky if the man who called us had not spotted him."
He added that the stray cat was a regular in the area and warned residents to be conscious of how and where they discard their trash.
"The cat is a known stray on nearby farmland which was probably scavenging for food when he got his head stuck. It is very important that people remember to clean out their old pots and jars to prevent attracting animals, and also secure your litter and recycling," Godfrey said.
