A tiny four-month-old ginger kitten was found in near freezing temperature by rescuers from the Denver Dumb Friends League. The kitten was so cold that her temperature did not even register on a thermometer, but the rescuers refused to let her go.

"You could sort of feel the cold coming off her," said Dr. Kasey Carter, veterinarian who treated the kitten. (abc News)

When they brought in the tabby kitten, she was unresponsive. Staff members used hair dyers to warm the kitten’s fur, heating pads with mittens to keep her body and paws warm, a bear hugger which has a tube that blows in warm air to wrap her in, and even injected her with warm IV fluids.

"When she came into the shelter, we weren't even sure if she was alive," said Megan Rees of the Denver Dumb Friends League, but the kitten is a little fighter.

They named the kitten Elsa after the Disney character from Frozen for her "fighting, little spirit."

Elsa is doing a lot better now. "We put some food in front of her and she immediately went for it, a little ravenous," said Carter.

UPDATES: Elsa's story has a happy ending!
