Railway worker saves frozen cat, loves him but must give him up to owners — 6 Comments

  1. I am shocked that cat survived. I have actually experienced temperatures close to minus forty and that is simply brutally cold. I’m thinking the coldest temp I have experienced firsthand was about thirty below. It was so bad that I could only stand to be out there about three minutes and that with being all bundled up. (My car engine had actually overheated from a stuck thermostat, so I was not getting any heat inside the car. I remember standing there with the hood open staring up at the stars thinking that it was beautiful out there and terrible because I was in a situation where I could actually die. This was long before the days of cell phones.)

    Just shows what amazing creatures cats are– they so often show that they can survive conditions that would kill a human. A human exposed to what that cat endured would have died.

      • My husband says to wish you a Happy Christmas as well and a Merry New Year.

        Monty is busy ignoring a new thing we put up for him. I noticed him reaching up and trying to scratch on the wall above one of his cat trees, so I had Jeff tack some carpet up there. Now Monty can actually hook his claws into the carpet and pull against the resistance instead of his claws just sliding on the smooth surface of the wall. But he won’t. It is like he is going out of his way to ignore the carpet strip. What is it about a cat that they cannot allow you to see them enjoying something you made for them? And the more they know you cannot wait to see them using it, the more they will avoid it at all costs, at least when you are looking. He will come around eventually. I think it was a few weeks before he would let me see him using the window seat I bought for him.

        • 🙂 That sounds like my cat. Happy Christmas and the all the best for the New Year to you all, Ruth. Let’s hope it is a good one. Let’s hope the terrorism stops or is cut back. We are all getting used to it. It is a way of life and it should not be.

  2. Unless Q199 has a chip of indisputable evidence that he belongs to someone else, I’d tell hem to go fly a kite. The bond between a human and another animal is to be treasured. Keep Q199 until they prove otherwise!

  3. Unless there is a chip or clear pictures I’d tell them to go pound sand. I know it’s possible that the cat got out and lost. As much as I love mine and would demand them back I would sincerely look at the cats current living situation and be prepared to let go if I thought it was in the best interest of the cat itself. Not everything has to end in a cage fight.
