Curious cat's head stuck in jar for over two weeks

From Checkpoint, 6:24 pm on 7 July 2020

Matamata locals have been desperately trying to rescue a curious and possibly greedy local cat that went all Winnie the Pooh on it and got his head firmly stuck in a peanut butter jar - that was about two weeks ago. Since then the distressed moggie has been seen darting all over the place - with locals in hot pursuit concerned that after so long without food or proper access to water - the cat was getting to the end of its nine lives. Annaliese England from the Matamata Animal Trust explains just how tight a squeeze this tabby was in.
