Cat Rescued From Soup Can

A stray 4-month-old kitten in Louisville, Kentucky, helped himself to the remnants of a discarded can of soup and got his head wedged tight inside the can.
The kitten was brought in by MAS animal control officer Raymond Thomas on Monday, and was immediately taken to the veterinary staff, Gulbe said.

An initial attempt was made by veterinary assistant Brenda Keel to remove the can, but the kitten started crying. He was sedated and a pair of bolt-cutters were used to cut the can off of his head.

Gulbe said the kitten was also hypothermic and received medical attention to stabilize his condition.

Staff named the kitten "Campbell."

Frau's point is the cynical one that there are millions of animals who don't make the news, equally deserving of adoption, but we don't hear about them. Many get euthanized.

Frau, there are plenty of people who donate time, money, and resources to animal charities every day, helping nameless animals who don't make the news.

Glad Campbell is OK.

Mitch and MadMolecule, this is what an animal shelter does. You're thinking of the people who object to vast sums of money and gargantuan efforts that happen occasionally to save some animals. I doubt you'd find too many people who would object to this.

Same thing happened in our backyard with a refried bean can but the cat was just about dead. I yanked the can off and after a few seconds she shot over the fence like a bullet. Her name is now Rosarita. That was years ago and I still see her occasionally.
