  • Frozen, unresponsive cat brought back to life by vets

A Montana cat is down to eight lives after she was found frozen and buried in snow on January 31.

Fluffy's owners, who did not want to be identified, found her covered in thick chunks of ice and snow near their home last week.

Her body temperature was below what the clinic's thermometers could read, minus 32 degrees.

Typically, cats have a temperature between 37.5C and 39C, according to petMD. China Corum, used heating pads and a heated cage to bring Fluffy's temperature up until she gained consciousness later in the afternoon.

Fluffy's owners plan to keep her indoors from now on, ABC News reports.

The clinic shared the miraculous story on Facebook.

A vet says Fluffy's body temperature was so low - it was hard to get an IV into her.

The very lucky cat is now back home. Pictures show her fur completely matted with ice and snow. Some clients found their injured cat buried in snow.




Clark says Fluffy has always lived outdoors.

Fluffy was "thawed" out at the Animal Clinic of Kalispell.

"And finally, we put her in a heated kennel".

"She was essentially frozen", said Andrea Dutter, executive director, told CNN.

Because the owners weren't home at the time, they aren't positive how Fluffy got stuck in the snow.

"They didn't think twice and they brought her straight to us to treat her medically", Dutter said.

Dutter told TODAY, "Dr. Clark has not seen this happen in his 20 years of practicing". For Fluffy, her owners made a life-saving decision.
