Frozen Fluffy Thaws in Miracle Recovery

Fluffy, a long-haired tabby resident of Kalispell, Montana, survived The Big Chill last week. Her owners found her frozen and unresponsive in a snow bank on January 31st as temps approached zero. They didn’t give up, but rushed her to the Animal Clinic of Kalispell. Dr. Jevon Clark said that Fluffy’s temperature was so slow it didn’t even register on a thermometer — with a bottom range of 90 degrees. (Cats’ temperatures normally are around 101 degrees.)

After about two hours of using warm water and blankets, Fluffy’s temp was still too low, so they took her to the emergency room. After a few more hours, Fluffy finally began to show signs of recovery. The hospital reports that Fluffy has made a full recovery and is back at home with her owners.

“Fluffy is amazing!” the hospital shared on Facebook . The clinic posted a photo of the thawed-out Fluffy, showcasing her beautiful, long fur.

She will ever after be an indoors-only cat.
