IRELAND – An abandoned cat is now recovering after spending a week with a tin can stuck on its head.
he unfortunate ginger cat who has since been named Tinhead by his rescuers, was spotted wandering around in a rural area with its head in an aluminum can last week.
Despite the fact that he was not able to see, Tinhead proved elusive and remained at large in the countryside for more than 7 days before being captured by Galway SPCA on Tuesday in Tuam.
Staff working with the animal-welfare organization did manage to remove the can from the cat’s head, enabling him to see and breathe freely for the first time since his accident.
This case was called in by a member of the public who had recently seen this cat appear over the last few weeks on her rural road.
