All we can say is, it must have seemed like a good idea at the time. Yes, this feral cat managed to get his head stuck inside a mayonnaise jar. The kind people at Tabby's Place cat sanctuary rescued him and brought him to our sister hospital, the Veterinary Specialty & Emergency Center in Levittown, PA. Our vets sedated the cat and snipped off the plastic jar. Nice work everyone!
