This is the distressed face of a Persian cat named MyLady who suffered numerous minor injuries after becoming trapped in the metal component of a reclining sofa.
Cat trapped under recliner. You can see the injury.
The poor kitty’s cries could be heard over the phone as his owner contacted an animal rescue team in the city of Munich in the southern German state of Bavaria.
His owner pleaded for help to come as quickly as possible. According to ViralTab News
“Please come quickly, my cat is stuck under the couch. It looks as though he is trapped in the metal parts and is bleeding and scared.”MyLady’s owner
MyLady suffered cuts and scrapes, a broken tooth (from trying to bite himself free) and fur loss. The rescue team says his eyes were wide with fear and he was covered in blood around his neck.
Being trapped caused injuries. Recliners are dangerous to cats.
A veterinarian was part of the rescue team. MyLady had to be sedated and the team had to carefully tilt the sofa and release the cat from between two metal arms.
An examination showed no ribs or internal organs were affected. MyLady was fortunate to have only minor injuries and the rescue team was fortunate not to have suffered injuries from a terrified cat during the rescue.
P.S. From Michael. It appears that the owner took the photograph of her cat when trapped under the recliner. That appears to have been her/his first instinct. I find that strange because it would not enter my head to take a photograph under these circumstances. The focus would be on releasing my cat.
I don’t think that recliners should be in homes where there are cats, kittens, puppies and small dogs. Period. They should be banished from these homes as they are too dangerous.
