Cat found frozen to fence gets ‘furever' home

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) - A cat who was found frozen to a fence in Syracuse this past January has found his forever home.

The cat, nicknamed Jack Frost by the DeWitt Animal Hospital, was found in early January frozen to a fence on Burnet Avenue as the temperatures hovered just above zero.

After the Syracuse Police Department broke the fence to free him, he was rushed to the Veterinary Medical Center in DeWitt.

"When he came in, he was hypothermic and he was covered in mats and they were just solid," recalls Marcie Marshall with the Veterinary Medical Center in Dewitt.

Jack has issues with his heart and needed his tail amputated when he came in to the hospital.

Without surgery, the infection in his broken tail would have spread. 

Through a generous donor, Jack was able to get the surgeries and procedures he needed.
