Pulling over, the driver got out for a better look, but despite being weighed down and practically blinded by the plastic jug, the little cat took off running with surprising speed. Unsure how long the cat had been stuck that way, the driver hurriedly dialed several local animal rescue organizations, including Tabby’s Place.
“I got a phone call from someone who sounded a bit frantic and said she was driving by an old abandoned farm, saw some cats and one had a jar stuck on his head,” Jonathan Rosenberg, founder of Tabby’s Place, told The Dodo. “She didn’t know what to do ... and didn’t know where to turn.”
Danielle Rice, the cat sanctuary’s operations manager, and a few staff members dropped what they were doing and went to the barn to begin their search for the stuck little cat.
“Danielle found the owner [of the farm], and there were a bunch of cats living there,” Rosenberg said. “The woman said she fed them, but was unaware that there was one with a jar on its head. She was very upset and asked us for help.”
