MARYLAND – Birdie the cat, stuck to a bird feeder with a wire piercing its eye, was rescued June 13 by the county’s new animal cruelty task force, PETS (Prevention, Education, Training and Systems), the SSPCA announced today.
It was feared the cat would have to be put down but, with care and treatment at the Hartwick Seminary shelter, it now seems Birdie will be fine.
“We are proud to work with first responders who care about animals, and on this day that was certainly the case,” said Stacie Haynes, SSPCA executive director.
