A cat is becoming an internet sensation after his insane rescue was filmed by some passerbys in Russia.

The poor kitty was found frozen to the snow-covered ground. Not only were his whiskers and tail iced from the cold, but his paws and body were glued to the pavement.

In the painful video, someone pours warm water over the cat to free him. The feline is seen shivering from the weather and fright. Even though the cat is freed, his body is so limp it cannot hold himself up.

A hero takes the cat, wraps him in a coat and saves him.

You can watch the video on Youtube, where it's been watched hundreds of thousands of times.
