The Winnipeg Humane Society is dealing with a large number of cats suffering from frostbite.

Officials with the animal agency said this has been of one the worst years ever for cats coming in with frostbitten ears, tails and limbs.

They’re asking the public to bring any animals they see suffering outdoors to the humane society.

Officials also reminded pet owners that windchill warnings apply to cats and dogs the same way they do to humans, and to make sure steps are taken to keep pets safe and warm.
