A cat that was found nearly frozen has been saved by a Fort Smith animal rescue. A sheriff's deputy alerted The Artemis Project Wednesday, Jan. 22, about a cat in desperate need of saving. “We have relationships with some of the deputies, some of the animal lovers, and asked if we could come take a look because he was in pretty bad shape,” said Jennifer Reddout of The Artemis Project. When rescuers arrived at Ben Geren Park in Fort Smith they found a cat suffering from hypothermia and wounds to his hind legs. “I don’t think he would have survived another day out here, not in the condition that he was in,” Reddout said. Luckily, rescuers were able to get the cat's body temperature back up and tend to his wounds. The cat, now dubbed Ben, is on the road to recovery. The rescue however still has other animals in need of medical aid.
