Cat found frozen in snow makes full recovery

A cat that was nearly frozen is now back to being fluffy.

Fluffy the cat spent the past week thawing out after her owners found her in a snowbank in Montana, ABC News reported.

She was unresponsive and her fur was coated in ice when the family found her on Jan. 31, as temperatures dipped down to 8 degrees, ABC News reported.

When she was rushed to a vet, her body temperature, which should have been around 101 degrees, didn’t even register. The thermometer only went down to 90 degrees.

The vet tried warm water, heating pads and a heated cage, KULR reported. But those things didn't work well enough so staff at the Animal Clinic of Kalispell took Fluffy to an emergency clinic, the TV station reported.
