Saved by Catnip
We were recycling a few cardboard catnip scratchers. Suddenly there was a cat hanging around the back of the clinic. He had something tan that looked like burlap from a distance wrapped around his neck. I asked a few customers and they had seen him hanging around for a while and were worried that the thing wrapped around his neck was getting tighter. So, we set out a trap. With catnip of course (and food too). The cat went in the trap the very first day it was set!  What was wrapped around his neck was stretchy, sticky bandage material. His new name is now Ace.We cut off the wrap and neutered him at the same time. Ace is being fostered by a customer.
