ROANOKE, Va. (WFXR) — Who would have thought that snacking on some peanut butter would land a stray cat in such a sticky situation in the Star City?

The Roanoke Police Department says the cat was trying to eat peanut butter straight from the jar and ended up with its head stuck inside the jar on Thursday, Sept. 9.

However, the department’s Animal Wardens managed to track down the cat and bring it to the vet, who safely removed the jar from the cat’s head.

“Our furry friend is now safe and recovering, and probably doesn’t have much of a taste for peanut butter anymore,” the Roanoke Police Department wrote on Facebook on Thursday.
