The Slice

This date in Slice history (1996)

Back when it was cold: Mary Jane Pynn's son Dave has a big orange cat named Blazer. Well, one night while it was snowing, Dave got in the hot tub out behind his house. Not wanting to be left out, Blazer jumped up on the edge of the tub. Only the edge was covered with ice, so the cat slipped into the water.

Dave lifted the soaked Blazer out of the tub and pointed him toward the little cat-door he uses to go inside.But on his way Blazer brushed against a metal barbecue-grill gas tank and his wet fur instantly formed an icy bond with it. So Dave had to take the flashfrozen feline AND the gas tank inside to his shower to thaw the frigid fur-metal connection.
