The story of a kitten found in sub-zero weather in Denver and named after Elsa from "Frozen" has a happy ending.

The Dumb Friends League said Monday that the orange tabby has been adopted by the volunteer who helped nurse her back to health.

Elsa was found tangled in some electric wires on a porch during last month's arctic blast. Her temperature was so low it didn't register on a thermometer and shelter workers used heating pads, blankets and hair dryers to warm her up.

She was later placed in the care of Jim Slater, who is often asked to handle severe medical cases. He's fostered dozens of animals but says Elsa is by far the sweetest kitten he's ever cared for. She now has an older brother named Blue.
