Man Saves Cats Frozen to Ice — Using Coffee

He's the cat's meow

In a video shared on Facebook, which has since gone viral, Diwisch records himself approaching the cats and discovering their tails were frozen to the ice.

The heroic man then went to his car and grabs a still-warm coffee to use to free the kittens from the ice.

“So today I found these three fellows on one of the back roads near one of my wells. Most likely dropped off. Poor things were frozen into the ice so they had to have been there all night. Took them home fed and watered them they look to be healthy and friendly,” Diwisch wrote on Facebook.

He took the kittens to a shelter to have them dewormed — thankfully for the kittens all three of the kittens were adopted by the same home.

“All three little rascals went to their new home today where they get to be together instead of separating them. All three are eating and drinking and very energetic. Thanks for everyone’s consideration and offering to take them very appreciated,” he said.

Alberta SPCA shared with CTV News that the animal shelter does not have a current investigation into what appears to be animal abandonment, citing the “over-population of cats” in the Canadian province as a cause for the “disposal.”
