Veterinarians in Montana worked to save a cat who was found nearly frozen to death after being stranded in the snow for hours.
The cat, named “Fluffy,” had a dangerously low body temperature and was unresponsive when he was discovered on Thursday, but doctors at the Animal Clinic of Kalispell were miraculously able to nurse the animal back to good health.
"I've never seen this. I've been in practice for almost 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,” Veterinarian Jevon Clark told KULR-TV. “Her temperature was so low our thermometer wouldn't read it, so we know it was less than 90.”
But they didn't give up. Doctors used heating pads and a heated cage to warm Fluffy up.
By that night, Fluffy was back to her normal self, according to the clinic.
“Fluffy is amazing!” the clinic wrote on their Facebook page.
She is now back with her owners, who say she will remain inside from now on.
