A cat that appeared to be frozen solid somehow recovered after being treated at a Montana animal clinic. "I've been in practice for nearly 24 years and she was actually caked in ice, like those ice balls were caked on her all the way around her 360 degrees all the way around her", Clark told KTMF.
Cats' temperatures are normally around 101 degrees, said the veterinarian.
Fluffy the cat was literally thawed after she was found buried in snow, her fur matted in ice.
So low the staff couldn't even measure it on their thermometer.
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. However, her temperature remained very low.
On Tuesday, the Animal Clinic of Kalispell posted photos of Fluffy on Facebook to share her story of "success and survival". "And finally, we put her in heated kennel".
Fluffy recovered and is now back home - as an indoor cat.
When she got to the clinic, her temperature was below 90°F, said Dr. Jevon Clark.
After a few more hours, Fluffy bean to show signs of recovery. Fluffy was "caked in ice", frozen, and unresponsive when she came into Clark's office.
The lucky escape serves as a warning to pet owners who allow their pets outside in freezing cold winter temperatures.
A cat in Montana may only have eight lives left after using one of her nine lives last week.
