Cold Kitty

The National Weather Service has reported that 10.8 inches of snow fell near Toledo Express Airport between Tuesday night and Wednesday noon. That means the Toledo area is close to breaking the record January snowfall of 30.8 inches that was set in 1978, the month of the Blizzard of 1978. The total as of Wednesday afternoon stood at 30.7 inches, with possible accumulations expected yet this week.

     Needless to say the Toledo, Ohio winter has been rough. This poor cat was struggling to stay alive in these harsh conditions. I could tell he was weak. He could barely stand but he managed to get up enough strength to go under my car. I usually don’t fool with or even touch stray cats but this one needed my help.

     I got a box from the basement & put him inside. He had tiny chunks of ice tangled in his wet fur. I called the animal shelter they said they didn’t have any room but I took him up there anyway. Unfortunately my attempts to rescue him were in vain as he suffered hypothermia and past away poor thing.
