Circe is ready for a new home after being found in the streets in frigid temperatures in Indiana.Last month, during the bone-chilling cold of the polar vortex and the onslaught of a major snowstorm, a 2-year-old black cat was found wandering in Fort Wayne, Ind.
A Good Samaritan called Fort Wayne Animal Care & Control to report seeing her on the city streets as wind chills dropped to 45 degrees below zero. The cat, whose rescuers named her Circe after a Greek goddess, lost tissue on parts of both of her ears as a result of frostbite, which can be "extremely painful," said the shelter's Peggy Bender.
Circe was treated using donated funds, and not long after, started showing her sweet and friendly personality. "Sometimes you wonder how animals go through something like this and come out so loving and gentle," Bender said. The shelter has had lots of applications from people interested in giving Circe a good home, and will hold a lottery to select one for her. - Read it at Indiana's Journal-Gazette
