Fluffy the cat is lucky to be alive after being found injured, “essentially frozen” and buried in snow.
The frozen feline was found by its owner in a Kalispell snowbank late last week when the temperatures dropped to a chilly -13C, its fur clumped with snow and ice
The cat’s owners rushed Fluffy to a local animal clinic in Kalispell.
“They brought her to us basically frozen and unresponsive,” said Animal Clinic of Kalispell, a veterinarian at the veterinary clinic.

A vet at the clinic said that Fluffy’s body temperature was so low it couldn’t be measured on a thermometer that had a range below 90F. According to veterinarians, a cat’s temperature is usually around 101F.
The clinic used warm water and blankets to defrost her, used blankets and a hair dryer to wake her up, and after a few hours Fluffy began to show signs of recovery.
