Extra Love Needed: Frosty the Frozen Kitten

Hi to all my friends!

Miss Frosty, how old are you?

My humans guess me to be aprox 7 ½ months old.

I was giving the birthday of Oct 27, 2013 based off of when I was first seen around the barn.

Frosty after she was first found

Where did your name come from?

I got my name because I was found Frozen Alive (almost solid)
How did you find your forever home?

The man who found me is friends with my mum. So he took me to her for help. It was very cold that night and I was near death.

Next to heater, on top of fleece with heating buttons underneath for warmth

How many fursiblings do you live with?

MANY – right now 9 kitties, 6 non releasable raccoons, 1 skunk, and 5 baby coons mum is bottle raising for release later this year.
Did they treat you different when you were recovering?

Yes I need special help staying warm. My body can not regulate a comfy temp and I sometimes need sweaters or I lay in my heated bed. I also have a heated kitty bed I can lay in case I am cold and am not in a sweater.

Jan 2014, still unable to move and getting supportive care

Was it scary being at the vets for so long?

I was very scared but because I was found frozen – almost solid – and so severely emaciated I could not run or get away from anyone. I had no strength to stand, sit or at time hold up my head.

Back home after some scary touch and go days at the vet

What is your favorite toy to play with?

Mousies

Me & mousie

I love your little pink dresses, do you pick them out yourself?

Mum decides what I need to wear, if and when I need something.

Miss Carol, when did you get involved with rescuing/fostering?

I have been working animal rescue all my life. I am a state licensed wildlife rehabilitator & I run wildlife rescue, rehab and release. I rescue and foster domestic animals in need. I run a pet sitting business and I run a local pet pantry.


Frosty’s story has touched so many people, for those that want to continue to help, what can they do?

To help Frosty, she has an amazon wish list  and she has a donate button her facebook page if you wish to send a monetary donation. Another way of helping is to help share her story and let people know that just because these animals have fur it does not make them immune to the cold. They still need help with proper shelter, food and water if they must live outside. Provide shelter, food and water to the strays and feral cats in your area.

What advice do you have for people who want to help local animals?

Contact a local rescue person in your area and see if they need any volunteer help. They usually are in need of food, bedding, and other supplies.
What was the strangest animal you have rescued? Not really strange to me, but to others they think my skunk rescues are a bit odd.

  1. You’re awfully cute for a kitten that started out as an ice cube. I love you in your dress and in your pearl necklace. It sounds like you’re in a wonderful home. Mom is going to check out the amazon wish list right now.

    Love and licks,
