Man uses warm coffee to rescue kittens frozen to ground

Three abandoned kittens frozen to the ground were luckily saved by a quick-thinking oil worker who used warm coffee to thaw them out.

Kendall Diwisch found the kittens near Drayton Valley, Alberta, Canada – an area which is currently facing extreme cold weather. The video has since gone viral and the oil worker shared an update on the kittens’ health.

Writing on Facebook, Mr Diwisch said: “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.

“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.”

The video, captured last Wednesday, shows Mr Diwisch approaching the poor kittens in the snow. He can be heard talking on camera, saying: “Look at these little guys. It’s alright, it’s ok. You’re frozen to the ice. Have you been here all night?”

One of the cats is free but his friends have their tails frozen to the ground. Once Mr Diwisch sees this he goes to his truck, brings back warm coffee, pours it on the felines and is able to get them free.

The cats can also be heard crying right until they are rescued and picked up by their saviour. Walking back to his truck, he says: “That’s so cruel.”

After the incident, Mr Diwisch explained that he took the cats home and gave them food and water.

He added: “Took them home fed and watered them they look to be healthy and friendly. If any friends are looking to have a new addition in their family, let us know as they will need homes.

“All three look to be males, and we also gave them dewormer.”
