  • Frozen, unresponsive cat brought back to life by vets

The Animal Clinic of Kalispell in Montana shared the "amazing" survival story of Fluffy, an outdoor cat found frozen outside her owners' home.

The cat was brought in by its owners after being buried in snow, the Animal Clinic of Kalispell wrote on Facebook.

Her body temperature was below what the clinic's thermometers could read, minus 32 degrees.

Vets at the clinic raised her body temperature using warm water, blow dryers, towels and intravenous fluids.

She was rushed to an animal hospital, "essentially frozen and unresponsive", the clinic said on Facebook.

She has eight lives left, but Fluffy is very lucky to be alive.

Balls of ice stuck to the cat's fur and she was unresponsive when she was taken in for treatment. Some clients found their injured cat buried in snow.

Dutter said that Fluffy is three years old and had always been an outdoor cat, but a couple who had recently moved to the area made a decision to take her in. "That's how we knew she was going to be OK", Dutter told TODAY. "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.

Dr Clark said Fluffy was three years old and had always lived outdoors. They then used specialized heating pads and heated cages, which helped her to regain consciousness.

Fluffy's owners will keep her inside after her wild adventure.
