The things that street animals have to go through are heartbreaking. They don’t have proper shelter or food, and they face so many dangers while exposed to the elements. So many animals lose their lives because of this. A calico cat was found frozen to the ground, but thankfully, she was saved in the nick of time.
Meet Briana. On a cold January day, kind strangers spotted the 10-month-old cat frozen and stuck to the ground in Minnesota. They immediately called the police for help.
Police quickly responded and took her to Animal Humane Society. “It had only been two degrees below zero (or -18.9°C) the night before. They rushed the kitten to our Woodbury shelter care,” Zoe Clarke of Animal Humane Society said.
Briana was so exhausted that she was unable to stand. Shelter staff began warming her to battle hypothermia. “We warmed her with heating pads and blankets and delivered pain management, subcutaneous fluids, and critical nutrition.”
They brought her back from death’s door but she was not in the clear just yet. Volunteers and staff took turns to look after her around the clock, making sure she got the attention she needed and lots of love to heal her.
Briana was a little shy and scared easily due to her poor eyesight. But it didn’t take long for her to warm up to everyone. She even reached out to those whose smell was familiar to her.
The adorable calico went to a foster home with a loving volunteer who helped her get used to being in a home and around people. Briana slowly came out of her shell. Now she is eager to be loved all the time.
“In the beginning, we weren’t sure if Briana would make it, but she fought for her life, making an incredible recovery.”
