(WOWT) An 11-week-old kitten found frozen to a concrete storm drain in Elkhorn, Nebraska last week is recovering.
A Good Samaritan looking out of her window noticed a mother cat trying to get something out of the storm drain. When the cat couldn’t seem to get the job done, she stayed by the drain, pacing and agitated. The Good Samaritan threw on her coat and went outside to check.
“I was horrified,” she recalled. “The mom’s kitten was dangling in the storm drain by one back foot, which was frozen to the concrete.”
The rescuer used lukewarm water to free the back leg, warmed the kitten up and took her to the Nebraska Humane Society in Omaha, which says getting the kitten back on track “was touch and go as one front paw was severely swollen with frostbite and the back leg was broken and frost damaged.”
