A stray cat named Sunny was rescued from the dangerously cold Chicago streets on Monday, but not before she nearly lost her ears to frostbite. The one-year-old kitten was rescued just before wind chills well below zero again struck the Windy City. In addition to her injured ears, which appear darkened and nibbled at, Sunny's fur was terribly matted and she weighed just 2.5 pounds. She was taken in by the city's PAWS animal shelter and treated, but unfortunately not before losing part of both ears. 'We, unfortunately, see that quite often during these months,' PAWS spokesperson Sarah Ahlberg told NBC Washington. 'We're trying to figure out why she's so underweight at one year old, so we're going to run some blood work on her. But she's doing splendidly.' As Sunny slowly recovers, PAWS and other such facilities across America's colder regions are urging pet owners and anyone with a heart to keep animals out of the dangerous temperatures this winter.
