A cat named Lazarus is living up to his name after a hero pulled him back to life from the brink of death.
Lazarus was found the night before Thanksgiving in 2015. Almost a foot of snow had fallen near Bear Lake in Garden City, Utah, accumulating over the course of just a few hours.
It was Branden Bingham and his kids who discovered the kitten when they ran out to play in the fresh snow. They frolicked in the fluffy white stuff, until his oldest son made a chilling discovery, a seemingly dead kitten that got trapped and partially buried under the rapidly falling snow.
Bingham’s brother sprung into action, picking up the frozen cat and bringing him back to the lodge’s porch. That’s when he family realized the tiny kitten was still alive, a moment they captured in a moving YouTube video earlier this month. The cat was almost frozen in place and unmoving when he was rescued, but Lazarus made a recovery just in time for the holidays.
By Christmas of 2015, just one month after the miracle kitten’s rescue, he was prancing and frolicking with the rest of his happy family, who decided to adopt him.
Take a look at Lazarus, the adorable cat that could melt even the hardest of hearts. And don’t forget to SHARE with friends and family on Facebook.
