Paling says she saw the three-year-old tabby with her head encased in silver duct tape, leaving only enough room for her nose.

In addition to volunteering at the clinic, Paling is the founder of Every Life Matters Cat Rescue and she posted a video on Facebook showing her boyfriend, Brett, carefully removing the multiple layers of tape.
