MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A young Minnesota cat is making a slow recovery after being found frozen to the ground, according to the Animal Humane Society.

The AHS says the 10-month-old cat, Briana, was discovered by police in the Cottage Grove area in mid-January and rushed to their Woodbury location.

She was suffering from hypothermia and immediately treated with heating pads and blankets.

As her temperature rose slowly, Briana opened her “big green eyes”, AHS said. That’s when they made another discovery: Briana is visually impaired.
