- Dedham, Massachusetts, USA -
On Wednesday, December 18, Jayson Tracy a Dedham Animal Control Officer found a stray cat frozen to a shipping container outside a TGI’s Friday along Providence Highway.
The furbaby now named Schooner, was carefully and safely removed and is recovering at the Animal Rescue League (ARL) of Boston.
Staff said: "Schooner was very thin, dehydrated and showing the typical bumps and bruises of living outdoors, which included a fractured tooth, but amazingly he did not suffer from hypothermia."
It’s unclear for how long Schooner was frozen to the container.
The ARL said in a news release: “It’s likely that Schooner’s fur was wet and with bitter cold and real-feel temperatures well below freezing, once the cat came in contact with the container he was immediately stuck.”
They also said that the sweet furbaby will soon be placed in foster care to gain weight, will have his fractured tooth removed, be neutered and then will be ready to find his furever home.
