  • Frozen, unresponsive cat brought back to life by vets

Miracle in Montana? An "essentially frozen and unresponsive" cat found completely buried under a mountain of snow has been saved.

Vets in Montana were able to revive a 3-year-old cat that was almost frozen to death after the pet's owners said they came home last week to find it encrusted in snow.

But her body temperature was below what the clinic's thermometers could read - 90 degrees. According to Clark, cats' temperatures normally are around 101 degrees.

Vets at the Animal Clinic of Kalispell used warm water, warming blankets and heating pads to bring Fluffy's temperature up and back to life.

Fluffy spent one night in the ER before returning home with her owners. Fluffy was rescued January 31 from a snow bank with her fur matted with ice.

The staff struggled to get an IV in her right away.

QUOTE: "Measles, a highly contagious disease, was declared eliminated in the U.S.in 2000 due to successful vaccination programs". Approximately 30 percent of reported cases have one or more complications including pneumonia, ear infections or diarrhea.


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

The clinic posted pictures of the recovery on its Facebook page.

Amid the deep freeze that has swept across the U.S., an astonishing sight greeted staff at an animal hospital - a cat frozen in snow.

"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. "We'll see if Fluffy likes that or Fluffy doesn't like that", Dr Clark said. She was living outside the house when new owners moved in within the last couple of years and adopted her. "Either something fell on her or she fell or something chased her and she got injured".

Fluffy's owners plan to try to keep her inside for now.

"Fluffy is unbelievable", the post said.
