On a cold winter’s day in Russia, a couple discovered a cat under their car that was unable to move because his paws had frozen in the ice.

They realized that the cat had thought he’d found a warm place (the temperature was -35ºC) and they knew they had to act quickly help him.

They moved the car and fetched a bucket of warm water to help free him, in fact, it took 7 buckets of warm water as the poor kitty had a blanket of ice all over him.

Even his whiskers were covered in frost, which is no surprise.

It took 10 minutes in all to free him from the ice and he stayed perfectly still, he knew these kind people were trying to help him.

“We called a vet who came right away and he did an anti-inflammatory shot. By the end of the day, the cat had started to walk,” the couple told the Siberian Times.

The vet estimated the kitty to be seven to nine months old.

Thankfully he made a speedy recovery and three days later the couple found a woman that was willing to adopt him.

His new human mama kept in touch to let the couple know how well he was doing. She says his paws are fine and he has now become an indoor cat.

He loves his new home and spends time running and jumping about the house.
