That poor kitty :c glad it’s ok.

Poor kitty!

Snow on the outside of fur is actually a good sign that the insulation is working - if the cat’s heat is escaping, then it would have melted the snow. Of course, this only works up to a point…

One life down, eight to go?

Good for kitty, but “dethawed” sounds to me like “re-frozen”. Yikes!

Didn’t look happy, maybe it was intentional.

I just saw Wes Craven’s “Chiller” on Creature Features this past weekend. I’d keep an eye on that cat.

Could be “declawed”.
Meanwhile BB picks on poor Donny for garbling the language.

Well yeah the cat was unhappy. Have you ever had a full-body ice cream headache?:cold_face::pouting_cat:

Was going to make a Pet Sematary reference. Now I don’t have to. Cheers.

As for “dethawed”, I think @pesco may have mixed up “thawed” and “defrosted.”

Pesco isn’t the POTUS. “Held to a higher standard” certainly applies to the ConDon®.

Glad it worked out this time. One time I thawed out a cat I found in a glacier but it turned out to be a really bad idea.

Dethawed means, effectively, frozen.
