ELYRIA, Ohio (AP) - A driver who found a gray kitten frozen to the road in northeast Ohio and rescued it says she initially thought it was a chunk of ice and was shocked when it tried to move.
    
Dara Taylor of Elyria tells The Chronicle-Telegram (http://bit.ly/1kW9Z5x ) she found the cat Monday covered in ice, as though it had been in water, and it couldn't open its eyes. She says she freed the cat from the road and took it to the Friendship Animal Protective League.
    
The group's chief financial officer, Shelley MacDonald, says the male cat has warmed up and is being treated for a respiratory infection. Officials are hopeful he will fully recover.
    
The organization says it is already getting adoption requests for the kitten, which has been named Frosty.
