  1. http://apnews.myway.com/article/20071202/D8T91K4O2.html Cat Survives 19 Days With Jar on Head Dec 1, 9:33 PM (ET) BARTLETT, Tenn. (AP) - Tabitha Cain has fed a feral cat she calls Wild Oats for several years, but now she's thinking of changing the feline's name to Survivor. That's because she says the cat survived for 19 days with a peanut butter jar stuck on its head. "We tried to get her, but being the type of cat you can't catch, she kept running and hiding," said Doretha Cain, Tabitha's mother. The family saw the cat several times with the jar on its head and tried in vain to catch it. But after not seeing the cat for a week, the Cains feared the worst. "I thought she was going to die with that jar on her head," said Tabitha Cain, 25. They found the once chubby cat on Wednesday, too thin and weak to flee. They caught her with a fishing net and used some oil to get the jar off her head. They gave her water and treated her wounds and on Friday she began to eat again. "I've heard of cats having nine lives but I think this one has 19 because she survived 19 days," Doretha Cain said. Memphis veterinarian Gerald Blackburn said he's heard similar stories of pets getting trapped for days or even weeks at a time and surviving. Blackburn said the cat may have lived off of its excess fat.
