During these dark times that we all going through with the cold weather that has gripped the Northeast portion of America, comes a great story of heroism from Mercer County Kentucky. Ron and Lori Jasper saw a kitten that was frozen stiff at their boat dock. The kitten had been there for a period of 11 hours before the Jaspers who were not able to rescue the kitten themselves due to their elderly age made a emergency phone call to the Mercer County Sheriff's Office. Mercer County Sheriff Ernie Kelty arrived at the boat dock where the kitten was frozen from the extreme cold weather. Sheriff Kelty took about 15 minutes to free the cat from the boat dock since his paws were stuck and he was shivering from the cold. As soon as Sheriff Ketly was able to use warm water to free the cats paws, he managed to cut the hair from the kitten that was stuck on the boat dock. Then Sheriff Kelty warmed up the kitten by holding the kitten underneath his shirt. When it was said and done, the Jaspers decided to adopt the kitten and name him in honor of Sheriff Ernie Kelty.

@DeepizzaguyI don't think age matters if they can take care of the kitten and love it. I am sure they had to pass all the requirements for the shelter i am sure the police took the kitten. The shelter i adopted a kitten from last September even looked up who owns my house! don't know where she found the info but she had the name of the owner of my house who is my sister
