The Iceman Cometh and Giveth Kitty Home

Earlier I had mentioned that someone I know had adopted the kitty, Sunny, that had been abandoned under a car last month in freezing weather. The man who found him, Chuck O., took him to the vet and nursed him back to health but with a new baby and two cats, was not in the position to keep him.

Enter our own John Farrell, a.k.a. Iceman, and his wife, Dale Marie, whom I recently learned fell in love with Sunny and have officially adopted him:

When Chuck found the cat, he weighed less than a pound, suffering from severe hypothermia, dehydration and full body tremors. The 24-hour clinic didn’t think he’d live. Chuck had them put the cat in the incubator and feed it intravenously. He did live and after taking him to the vet yesterday, he is now 3.1 pounds and in good health.

About an inch of his tail is now dead, as is the tip of one of his ears, and the vet hopes they fall off naturally. Chuck’s Mom and Dad nurtured Sunny (this after Chuck spent approx $600 to save an abandoned kitty left to die) back to life.

After my wife, Dale, read his story and how Chuck saved him, we couldn’t help but give this guy the home the deserves. We picked him up late Sunday afternoon and he has already changed our lives. Damn, I love this little guy.

    It should read ‘whom I recently learned’:
    Whom is talking about the object of that sentence not the subject of the sentence. I is the subject of the sentence.

  2. Iceman, you’ve always been my conservative hero on B’net, and now you’re really my hero! Thank you to you and your wife for opening your home and heart to this little guy. You’ve warmed my heart today!

  3. YAY I love happy endings like this one. It is great to know there are so many wonderful people out there. Good job to everyone who had a hand in saving this sweet kitty and giving him a home!

  4. Wonderful news! Thanks to both Ice and his wife for giving the little one a home, and especially Chuck for taking the little guy in and bringing him back to health. I wish there were more like you (plural) out there!

  5. Ice to the rescue! great news! He looks like my Harry who passed many years ago. Sweet dreams and a warm radiator to Sunny.
