Winters get cold in Quebec, Canada. In February, temperatures range from a high of 24°F and a low of 8°F. Some people might be surprised that any animal would walk around outside in that weather. But that surprise was doubled for an anonymous Quebec woman.

In February 2020, a woman awoke to scratching and meowing sounds. When she followed the noise, she found a cat pawing at her door. The poor, scraggly cat was outside in several inches of snow.
