In some incredible feat, a cat who was found practically frozen to death buried in the snow in Montana in the USA late last week has made a full recovery.

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.

Fluffy's temperature was so low the staff couldn't even measure it on their thermometer.

The clinic used warm water and blankets to thaw the cat and after several hours, Fluffy was showing signs of recovery.


She's now back home, recovering with her family.

Cats' temperatures are normally around 101 degrees, said the veterinarian.

An incredibly fortunate cat that was "essentially frozen" after being left outside in sub-freezing temperatures has made a miraculous recovery, according to vets. Fortunately, after a few hours, she remarkably recovered.

"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 this, I'm bloody hoping that Fluffy is given a new life as an indoor cat, destined to purr by the fire through future winters.

"She was frozen", said executive director of the Animal Clinic of Kalispell Andrea Dutter.

"Either something fell on her or she fell or something chased her and she got injured ..."

The three-year-old cat mostly stayed outdoors before, but now she'll be staying inside - where it's nice and warm.


This feline may have just wasted one of her nine lives. "Fluffy is unbelievable!" the clinic said.
