WILKES-BARRE -- One lucky cat is counting its nine lives after a wild adventure.

The recently rescued cat had to get its head removed from a mayo jar at Pittston Animal Hospital.

The stray cat, now named Miracle, had been running around the area of Chestnut Street in Wilkes-Barre.

“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,” Linda Ruggere of Wilkes-Barre said.

Ruggere tries to take care of cats on her street, but this worried her. Besides cars driving by, there were plenty of other threats for the short hair cat to avoid.

“So often do I see cats dead on the road, just driving down the road, and it's horrible for any cat lover,” said Ruggere.
