Frozen Kitten Brought Back To Life by Family UPDATE | The Dodo Comeback Kids S02E04


It was Thanksgiving Day, and all the kids were outside
playing, and, “There’s a dead cat
over here.” – God.
– Is it alive? – I don’t know. I don’t know. – He’s a goner? – No, he’s alive.
– He’s alive! – Oh!
– Dad, can we keep it? – That cat was like,
dead in the snow. His eyes were
frozen open. And I just started to do
these gentle chest compressions. Truth be told, I didn’t even know
if I was doing it right. All the kids were
gathered around. My Dad was like,
“The cat’s dead.” He’s like, “Just stop,
guys, he’s dead.” And over time, people started
to file out of the room. After about an hour and a half
of pumping his chest, he just takes this gentle
inhale [breath]. So I yell at everybody
to come back. – And to our amazement, they’ve got him wrapped up
in a little towel. and he’s alive. He’s as timid and terrified
as you could possibly imagine, but he’s alive.
Barely alive. Like, so limp,
so weak, so frail. – So we stuck him
in a bathtub. We fed him and we gave
him some water. And slowly but surely his pupils
started to go back to normal. And then he just became this full,
alive little — little cat. The vacation kind of
soon ended, and we decided who was
gonna take the cat home. And I have two cats.
[Chuckle] It was apparent that
the home needed to probably be with Branden
and his family. – I want to bring it home.
– Buddy. Oh my gosh, those eyes. We talked about it,
and we’re just like, “Let’s bring him home.
Let’s just bring him home.” – That’s right, get the cat box.
Where’s the cat box? – It’s right next to him. – Hi, baby!
– Look look look. – Hi.
– Oh my goodness. – Hi.
– Oh. It was a bit of a drive home,
so I just held him the whole time and he just purred
instantly. – Welcome home, buddy.
– Can you hear him purring? – You’re gonna come
home with us. We’re home. Are you ready to go
inside? Okay. First night in your new
home, okay? Goodnight, buddy. He just wasn’t really comfortable
being around people and loud noises and
a lot of kids. – We had to earn his trust. Each day that went on,
he would, like, venture out into a new area. Lazarus was a stray cat. He didn’t really have
a home. So when we brought him
in, our family had to learn how to
bring in a cat, and how to adapt him to
a family, family life. Soon he’d jump up
on the kids laps and you go, “Okay.
He’s safe with the kids. He feels safe.” Sit with them for lunch.
“Okay, he feels comfortable.” But it was baby steps
for him. It was like each new thing
he did was letting us know he
feels comfortable with us. – He got less nervous,
’cause he got to know the family
a little more. – Ryler is the one who
stumbled upon him. If I ever can’t find the cat,
he’s in Ryler’s room. As far as Krew, he doesn’t
really get down and play with Lazarus as much
as the other kids do. But he loves him.
Brexsen, Lazarus tends to run a little bit more from him. – Hazy, because she was
a newborn, I think there was always
that trust there. He would lick her head. She would just sit there
and love it. – One morning I found him, you know,
peeking up in her crib, looking over the side. They’ve always had a
special bond, because they’ve grown up
together. Ever since she’s been here,
he’s been here. – Two little babies that were, like,
tiny at the same time, Hazy’s the baby. But, like,
he’s the baby, too. – One’s just furry.
– Yeah. And the other one’s Laz. [Laughter] Those two have always
just grown up together. – And as she’s gotten older
and he’s gotten older, she loves to play with him. – The cat. I love our cat. – She loves cats. – We’re neighbors.
So I would check in, see how the cat was doing.
And to see it kind of progress was
pretty cool. He’s got a personality that
matches the Bingham family. – He’s very curious. – Hi, kitty. Very interested in
anything you’re doing. – Lazarus’ determination
still continues to this day. He’s determined to be a
solid member of this family. ♫ Aw, look at that. He’s just
hugging the crap out of Justin. Oh, yeah, dude.
He knows. – Oh!
– Oh! He ate it. – You’ve gotten big, buddy. – He could fit in the palm
of your hand. He did! This little, lifeless kitten
in the snow, that really had every
reason to give up. But instead, decided to fight
for another chance. – To come over and see him
just be part of the family, it’s just pretty cool. – Lazarus has shown us that there are bigger
things in life. People, and relationships,
and animals, and the love and bond
that you can feel, it’s unlike anything
I’ve ever seen. ♫

  12. They have a rare flame point cat and it’s exetremly rare if it comes up to you or you spot one these are very rare cats with beautiful colors and their beautiful blue eyes

  13. This whole video felt a bit over exposed. Maybe lower the brightness a bit next time?

  14. If there is a cat in my yard and it was snowing I would do the same exact thing and I wouldn't give it away I would keep it I've already got one cat but I don't know what I used to have to but I don't know what happened to it I think you ran off or he died

  18. a we guys y all are so oind

  19. When they gave it mini pancakes 😭😭😭

  20. Dr Mike would be proud of Justin

  21. Its not uncommon for cats to like babies and want to lay with them even. It can actually be very dangerous. I was told to keep my cat away from my sleeping newborn because many newborns have died that way. They end up suffercating because the cat lays right on them. Idk why I'm mentioning this. I guess in case nobody knows and thinks its adorable that they cat always wants to sleep with their baby. Its definitely cute but not safe so be careful.

  22. A found a frozen cat in my front lawn last year. It had been barried in the snow that is on the side of the road and we didn't find it until spring when the snow melted. It broke my heart. I'm pretty sure it got barried when a snow plow truck drove by and all the snow piled up on side of road. I allow my cats to come and go outside as they please and this terrified me and I will never let my cat out when trucks Are out plowing the road ever again. I still feel so bad for that poor cat.

  23. This reminds me of the time of when my cosines dad found a kitten in his ENGINE phew that she was ok πŸ‘Œ

  24. I'm not crying you are! :c

  25. We have a cat and I’ve always grew up with her, but now we have to keep her in the basement because my step dad is allergic to cats.

  26. Im crying cuz i haved a cat w same color and then he losted… then we found him like can`t even stand up and we saved him 😒😒

  27. Why was there a full production crew around when this event happened?

  28. If I had the cat I’ll just play with it

  29. His or her eyes are so human like when she was a kitten poor thing

  30. God Bless him πŸ₯°

  31. You guys are lucky to have ur own cat instead of 30+ that live outside. My aunt ended up killing our two cats by throwing them outside and we had them for so long and when I found out what she did, I cried those two cats were family…… And now they're gone.

  32. First thing they should've done was warm it it up…slowly, then the 90 mins CPR probably wouldn't have been needed. Great story though, Lazarus is the same beige colour as the family house…in a good way.

  33. 😻😻😻

  34. This video and this story will always be in my memories. I saw this video a long time ago, ever since seeing it, it’s been etched in my brain. I don’t know why

  35. "Lazarus has a personality that matches the Bingham family. He's curious and very interested in what you're doing."

    What was the neighbour trying to imply haha?

  36. Yeah but literally why were they recording the whole thing

  37. Beautiful story but has no one questioned how on earth the kitten got there? Or rather WHO put the kitten there. And even more odd Lazarus looks like a pedigree cat too.

  38. what type o cat is dis
