A kitten who was found frozen to an Ohio road earlier is recovering this week. On her way to work Monday morning, Dara Taylor drove by what she believed to be a dirty clump of ice on the side of the road, but she had a strange feeling that led her to stop her car and investigate. Taylor found that the clump of ice was actually a 5-month-old kitten, completely frosted over with ice.
"It was total shock when I saw him move," Taylor told a local Fox affiliate. "As soon as I opened up my door, you could hear the meows -- the forlorn little cries. I just cradled him in my arms and put him back in the van."
Taylor immediately brought the kitten, who has since been named Frosty, to the Friendship Animal Protective League (APL), in Elyria, Ohio. There, Frosty was diagnosed with an upper respiratory infection, which had produced a buildup of fluid in his eyes that left them glued shut in the cold. His limbs were so ice-coated he was unable to move, and a spokesperson from the APL said vets are unsure whether they'll be able to save Frosty's frozen tail.
