A lucky cat has survived after being trapped for four weeks in a chilled food warehouse - by eating frozen peas.
The feline managed to survive temperatures of -2C (-28F) for a month in the warehouse before it was finally rescued by the RSPCA.
The 12-month-old black and white tabby cat, who has been nicknamed 'Frosty' by RSPCA staff, is believed to have survived by eating frozen peas and licking moisture off icy food packets.
However, Frosty did not manage to escape frostbite during his time in the freezing temperatures, and had to have both ears and his tail amputated following his ordeal at the frozen food distribution centre in Northamptonshire last month.
He is now recovering at the RSPCA Woodside Animal Centre in Leicester and is expected to make a full recovery.
Frosty, who is believed to have been trapped in the warehouse after entering in the back of a lorry, was spotted by staff in the warehouse early last month but escaped numerous attempts to catch him.
The large warehouse is maintained at a constant temperature with its main doors closed except when large articulated lorries arrive to deliver or remove palletised cargo.
Staff believe Frosty may have been too frightened to leave when he had the opportunity because of the noise and activity around the main doors.
