This Unfortunate Cat Got Its Head Stuck In A 'Necklace'

Our feline friends may be known to get their heads stuck in things at any given opportunity, but one cat appears to have turned the mishap into a serious style statement.

A Redditor shared the image below, explaining "My friend's cat got its head stuck in a vase, freaked out, broke the vase, and was left with this."

As expected (it is a funny cat photo after all), the internet went into overdrive, with people comparing the base of the vase to a rather fetching gold choker.

But one smart commenter was quick to point out the cat bared an uncanny resemblance to an ancient Egyptian statue, posting the photo below.

"Same thing happened 2000 years ago. But this was the only way to post it back then," another commenter added.

So that explains it.

By the looks of the original image, the poor kitty was at the vets getting its new 'accessory' removed. We hope it learned its lesson.

But knowing cats, probably not.
