A small, white kitten camouflaged by freshly fallen snow, was discovered frozen by the Bingham children playing outdoors.
The seemingly lifeless kitten was rushed inside their house. A quick thinking father called his vet trained brother, Justin, who rushed to the scene and started to work on the motionless kitten.
After Justin dedicated an hour of rubbing the kitten and pumping his chest in an effort to get his blood flowing (see video at: Lazarus Kitty ), the miracle baby started to revive. By the end of the day, the little guy was up on his paws and meowing.
The family named him Lazarus, after the Bible story of Lazarus, whom Jesus raised from the dead. Lazarus was adopted into the family, and is now romping energetically around their home.
Miracles do happen!
