A stray cat has been spared from her unfortunate helmet thanks to a good samaritan, devoted team of rescuers, and a veterinary staff in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania.

Linda Ruggere first noticed the cat when it came up to try to eat some food she typically lays out for various strays in her neighborhood.

Ruggere said in an interview with WNEP 16:

“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.”

After several attempts to free the cat from the obstruction, rescuers at Whisker’s World, a non-profit organization that tends to the needs of homeless animals, were finally able to contain the kitty. They brought the cat in for medical treatment at Pittston Animal Hospital where a doctor was able to remove the plastic jar from the cat’s head with a pair of scissors.

Once the cat was relieved of her burden, she was released back into the wild under the direction of the rescue organization, which works to trap, neuter, and release cats before returning them to their colonies.
