LOGAN, Utah (AP) - A trash collector in Northern Utah was performing his regular route on a frigid day when he noticed a small, black kitten lying in the snow.

The Herald Journal reports (https://bit.ly/2i9NIab ) that the cat’s fur was covered in ice and she was barely clinging to life. Temperatures that day reached a low of 28 degrees below zero.

Sam McGregor of Logan says he bundled the kitten, which he called Sue, in his jacket and put his truck’s heater on full blast. Then he took Sue to the Cache Humane Society, where director Stacey Frisk says they tucked her into blankets and placed her on heating pads while hydrating her.

Frisk says the 12-week-old kitten was malnourished and had frostbite on her ears, but has been recovering and will soon be placed with a foster family.

This story has been corrected to show the kitten is 12-weeks-old, not 12-years-old.
