Zoos are usually reserved for exotic animals like tigers and bears, not house pets. Still, one little kitten somehow found her way into Sadgorod Zoo in Russia. A zoo-keeper named Alice was the one who spotted the furball.

The young feline was in a pile of snow during the cold winter months. Right away, Alice bundled up the animal in her jacket and rushed to the zoo vets. For all she knew, the kitten could be injured from the cold.
