Nov. 30 (UPI) -- A cat was brought to a Pennsylvania veterinarian's office for help after it was found with a mayonnaise jar stuck on its head.

Linda Ruggere, of Wilkes-Barre, said she tries to take care of the stray cats in her neighborhood, and she recently discovered a feline in the area had a jar stuck on its head.


"I saw this cat coming to eat and it had a mayo jar and I was like, 'Oh, my God!' and it ran away. The next day, I was literally able to get the mayo jar and try to get its head popped out and it ran away again," Ruggere told WNEP-TV.

Rescuers with Whisker's World were able to capture the cat and bring it to Pittston Animal Hospital, where veterinarian Inayat Kathio was able to cut through the jar and free the feline.

Kathio posted photos of the procedure, which involved a large pair of scissors, to his Facebook page.

Whisker's World released the cat, now dubbed Miracle, back into the neighborhood after it recovered from its injuries.
