Cat left inside frozen plastic tote at Humane Society in Midland
MIDLAND, Mich. - Humane Society of Midland County said they found a male cat left in a frozen plastic tote with a rock top at their location.
The Humane Society said in a post on Facebook, "This morning we arrived to a senior male cat left in a frozen plastic tote with a rock on top. He was extremely cold and had his own feces frozen to his body. Leaving him like this in these elements could have killed him."
The post continues, "We understand it's often hard to know what to do with stray animals but in these weather conditions, this is never the answer!"
Humane Society Of Midland County Foster Program Manager Diane Winkler says she doesn't believes the person who dropped the cat off had good intentions.
"It's a great example of something that could have gone way worse, but didn't. But it is a great learning opportunity so we can tell people that if you find a cat, they want to do the right thing, we want to do the right thing, but there were safer options to do it," Winkler says.
The Humane Society urges the community to ask the Midland City Police to transport stray animals in need during the winter. They also suggest asking volunteers in the community willing to help get these animals.
