And after Cookie’s family had wheeled her into Pieper Memorial, the staff there were confident that they could indeed assist her. “Once I realized she’s only stuck her head through the tire on her own, being a silly kitten, then the situation became less frightening,” Ferguson revealed to The Dodo. “She wasn’t hurt at all – just stuck.”
But, as it turned out, and even if she had seemingly found it simple to ensnare herself in the first place, the process of removing Cookie from the tire was a tricky one. Consequently, the vets were going to have to use some force to free the trapped kitten – a fact that didn’t go down too well with Cookie herself.
