DENVER — When the temperature drops below freezing … outside is no place for humans or indoor critters. The story of one near-frozen kitten is reminding all of us to keep pets inside when it’s so cold outside.
“Not pets or people can survive very long when the mercury drops to -14 degrees,” says Megan Rees of the Dumb Friends League. “This little kitty was almost gone when she was found.”
A friend of Allison Baker’s was heading out of town when the kitten was found Thursday. Baker told the friend to bring the kitten – who was covered with snow, nearly frozen stiff—over in some blankets.
All the friend could find was a Tom Jones labeled, cardboard box. So, of course the friends named the kitten—Tom Jones—not knowing the kitten was female.
A call to the Dumb Friends League was returned with an invitation to bring the little cat over for some life-saving treatment, as only vets there can offer.
“The cat came in named Tom Jones, which was changed to Frosty, but when they found she was a female kitten, they chose Elsa, from “Frozen” fame,” said Rees. “Now, Elsa is doing just fine, but because she is only 1.2 pounds, we will let her live in a foster home for a month before she will be ready for adoption.”
Of course, everyone who sees the little kitten also sees their hearts melt, WE ALL WANT HER, is all you can say. Just don’t know how my Weezer would handle having a younger sister around the house!
