OLD CHATHAM, N.Y. (NEWS10) – A cat has survived and is doing well after it was found frozen on the side of the road Thursday.
Around 2 p.m., R.J. Poulter was on Route 13 in Old Chatham when he noticed the cat out of the corner of his eye.
Poulter initially thought the cat was dead because it was covered in snow and ice, but when he realized it was breathing, he had to literally peel the cat off the road because it was frozen and stuck.
The cat was given to Little Brook Farm in Old Chatham. He was warmed by the fire and appears to be doing well. It is young, healthy, friendly and an unneutered male in good weight. He wwas evaluated at the Sheep Meadow Animal Hospital in Ghent on Friday, and was given a clean bill of health.
The handsome man is now called Valentine.
