Veterinarians bring nearly frozen, unresponsive cat back to life

A very lucky cat in Montana is happy and healthy
after thawing out — literally — at an animal clinic over the past week following a miraculous
rescue. The owners of Fluffy, who live in Kalispell,
Montana, in the far northwest of the state, found her in a snow bank on Jan. 31 — unresponsive,
with her fur matted with ice. The low in nearby Whitefish was a bone-chilling
8 degrees on Jan. 31, and they had received about 16 inches of snow for the month. Dr. Jevon Clark, who works at the Animal Clinic
of Kalispell, told ABC News when they brought Fluffy to the clinic her temperature was so
slow it didn’t even register on a thermometer — with a bottom range of 90 degrees. According to Clark, cats’ temperatures normally
are around 101 degrees. After about two hours of using warm water
and blankets, the cat’s temperature 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 animal hospital shared the good news on
Tuesday morning that Fluffy has made a full recovery and is back at home with her owners.
