Kind Stranger Rescues Kitty Frozen to the Ground in a Storm–and He Now Looks Amazing
Utter tragedy was avoided recently in Michigan when a good samaritan found a cat frozen to the ground during a winter storm.
The savior’s name was Kelly, the cat’s Elliot, and together they flew to the Big Lake Community Animal Clinic in Muskegon for life-saving veterinary care.
“When he arrived at the clinic, his body temp was only 94 degrees, and his eyes had crusted shut,” the clinic reported Tuesday on Facebook.
“Life saving treatment was started immediately by the vet and staff, with warm IV fluids, warming him up, cleaning his eyes, and checking for any injuries, then monitored. Happy to say he is now resting comfortably!”
As of yesterday Elliot’s eyes are open, and he’s beginning to talk to the staff. His voice is still raspy, and if he had lost his appetite after parts of him were frozen solid, he’s regained it now.
Anyone who recognizes him is asked to contact Big Lake Animal Clinic at 231-799-1074. You can help with Elliot’s medical costs on the Muskegon Humane Society’s website here.
