Kitten frozen to Ohio road and rescued by Good Samaritan

A five-month-old kitten with her eyes "glued" shut used one of her nine earlier this week when she found herself literally frozen to an Elyria road and miraculously rescued by a Good Samaritan reports the

On her way to work, Dara Taylor thought she simply saw a chunk of dirty ice on the road, but something made her stop her car to investigate. As soon as she stepped out of her vehicle, Taylor heard the pathetic, tiny "meows" of a kitten. And there she was; a tiny little cat covered in ice with her legs frozen, her eyes shut, and totally unable to move.

Taylor was able to break the ice away from the kitten and brought her to the Friendship Animal Protective League in Elyria where a veterinarian carefully warmed her up, and began to treat her upper respiratory infection, which more than likely was responsible for her eyes being "gooped" shut.

And yes, the kind folks from the Friendship Animal Protective League named their new little feline friend, "Frosty."

Obviously, this little one is a survivor. She is now happily purring away at her foster home, eating on her own, and staying warm with the help of a heated blanket.

Frosty should be available for adoption in a few weeks.
