 Today's weather trivia: 8 March 2005: A 2 1/2 year old black cat called Mr.
Mudpie rallied from a severe bout of hypothermia. A few weeks earlier, the
Guelph, ON, Humane Society found the cat frozen in a mud puddle. Near death,
he was too weak to move, there were signs of frostbite on the tips of his
ears and a scab on his nose, and fur was missing from the bottoms of his
front feet.
