Frozen cat rescued after being found unresponsive in Montana snow bank

Jevon Clark of the Animal Clinic of Kalispell said Fluffy was unresponsive and her body temperature did not register on the clinic's thermometers when her owners brought her in.

They also posted a picture of Fluffy, now unfrozen, showcasing her long, elegant fur.

"I've never seen this".

"She wasn't really responding for about the first half-hour, but then she started at least, acting like she was going to be alive", Dr Clark said.

After about two hours of using warm water and blankets, the cat's temperature was still too low, so they took her to the emergency room.

Typically, cats have a temperature between 37.5C and 39C, according to petMD.

Clark and his associate, Dr.


One change for Fluffy though: She's now an indoor cat. She was rushed to an animal hospital, "essentially frozen and unresponsive", the clinic said on Facebook. After a few more hours, Fluffy finally began to show signs of recovery. "Fluffy is incredible!" the clinic said.

"Fluffy is fantastic!" the hospital shared on Facebook.

"It really is true that with hypothermia they aren't dead until they are warm and dead".

"These crabby cats are survivors", Dr Clark said.

"This is a miracle with some quick thinking on the part of her "parents" and this wonderful vet!"

She has eight lives left, but Fluffy will be staying inside these days. "She is so lucky that she found such wonderful care", said another.

Once she was thawed, the veterinarians discovered that the cat had suffered from an injury that prevented her from getting back to the house.
