Lucky the Cat Is Lucky To Be Alive

The cat was found under a car, frozen to the ground.

Lucky the cat may owe his life to Mike Campbell, the man who helped free him from where he was frozen underneath an abandoned car. Campbell and a friend heard the cat howling in pain last week while in an industrial area of Regina, SK, Canada, the Regina Leader-Post reports.

“I was looking around, and I couldn’t see it until I started crawling underneath the cars,” Campbell told the Leader-Post. “I went to grab it, but it couldn’t come to me because it was frozen to the ground. It was just howling and howling and howling.”

Campbell and his friend carefully removed the cat from his spot under the car, then took the cat to the Animal Clinic of Regina for treatment. Dr. Lesley Sheppard said the cat’s tail and hind limbs were frozen. “He was given pain medication and slowly warmed, and at this point we’re just waiting and watching to see how badly damaged the tissue was,” she said. “The cat’s actually looking pretty good today.”

Campbell offered to pay the bill for medical treatment, but Dr. Sheppard and Dr. Karen Harasen won’t charge for caring for Lucky. “We’re not doing a lot of expensive treatment,” Sheppard said. “We’re just monitoring the cat.”

And though Campbell can’t bring Lucky home with him because he already owns five cats, he is glad Lucky survived. “I couldn’t leave the cat to die,” Campbell said. “I named him Lucky because it’s awful lucky he lived.”

Lucky is a very lucky cat to have had Mr.Campbell come around. Sounds like something my husband would do also. We have 5 cats too.We feed all the strays that live around us.Some have even decited to stay with us. We love them all like they were our own.The world needs more people like Mr.Campbell but some people just turn the other way. The Vets must be wonderful people too.
