It’s often said that the power of love and care can change the face of the planet. While humans tend to forget such important life lessons, nature surely has a way of reminding us. The innocence of a little kid and selflessness of our pets are probably the closest ways humanity will ever experience unconditional love. The Foster Department of The Humane Society of Utah witnessed one such story when a kitten made a narrow escape after it was found frozen on a window sill.Elsa, the kitten, was brought to The Humane Society of Utah on January 2, which was a Monday evening. The little kitten was in a very bad shape and was ice cold.
One of the vets immediately started nursing Elsa and came up with a plan to bring her temperature back to normal. The vet gave her plenty of warm fluids to rehydrate her. He even kept her on a heating blanket to make sure that the kitty was being warmed up. Eventually he saw that all of his efforts were paying off as little Elsa was slowly coming back to life.
When Elsa was brought in, she was just about 8 to 10 weeks old. Although the staff of HSU was skeptical if Elsa would ever make it through, she did so like a champ. The next morning, Elsa woke up smiling, purring and meowing.
The little feline was named Elsa after the iconic character from the Disney movie “Frozen” because she enjoys singing and attracts people to her bed by doing so. Although the cat is making a speedy recovery, she still has some time before she will be put up for adoption. The feline will continue to enjoy living with her foster family until she is healthy enough to be spayed and adopted. Elsa’s foster mother, Bellar, said in an interview that, “She is eating wet food and seems to be doing well.” She further added, “She is friendly and loves to headbutt my hands and knees with her little feet.”
Elsa was brought back to life with just a little attention and quick thinking. HSU hopes Elsa’s story will teach and remind people that just because an animal has fur, it doesn’t mean they’ll be able to tolerate extreme winter temperatures in places like Utah.
