Frozen feline thawed after she was found in a snowbank

It took seven hours, but eventually, doctors were able to bring her body temperature back to normal.

The vet's office warmed the cat using towels, cage warmers and intravenous fluids.

Fluffy is an indoor-outdoor cat that knows her surroundings well, Dutter said.

The cat was discharged to its owners the same night and when Dr Clark checked in a few days later, Fluffy appeared to be back to normal. "And then they realized, oh my gosh, she's not moving". They rushed her to the Animal Clinic of Kalispell just in time.

Dr Clark said Fluffy's owners didn't do anything wrong. "I've been in practice for nearly 24 years and she was actually caked in ice, like those ice balls were caked on her all the way around her 360 degrees all the way around her", Clark told KTMF.

When Fluffy arrived, she was unresponsive with a temperature under 32.2C, which was less than the hospital's thermometers could read, according to Dr Clark.

Fluffy reportedly had been living outside the house when new owners moved in within the last couple of years and adopted her. The clinic said there were some signs of injury and they believe she couldn't get to her "warm spot". "We'll see if Fluffy likes that or Fluffy doesn't like that", he said.
