Frosty was a farm kitten found nearly frozen to death in a barn on 12/30/13 in Sullivan Wisconsin. Severely emaciated, dehydrated and malnourished, she was slowly thawed out and survived the night.

 The temps had already been below zero for many days with extreme wind chills and dangerous temps in the forecast. Already on the brink of death, she would not have survived for much longer.

Frost Bite on ears and feet 

Emaciated

Secondary respiratory infection

Blind in one eye and the other eye not seeing too well (due to being frozen)

No feeling in her back legs and she failed all tests.
