Frozen, unresponsive cat brought back to life by vets

A family is grateful that their cat is safe and has returned home after she was found frozen and buried in snow.

But her body temperature was below what the clinic's thermometers could read - 90 degrees.

Staff warmed the cat using towels, cage warmers and intravenous fluids. Fortunately, after a few hours, she remarkably recovered.

"But really she was just so packed in ice and snow, you couldn't really tell she was alive until you looked at her and started listening to her and realized that she's still alive. Excellent save! So glad the veterinarians and technicians and the owner worked hard to save this cat", said one commenter.

Fluffy recovered and is now back home - as an indoor cat.

"She was frozen", said Andrea Dutter, executive director of the Animal Clinic of Kalispell.

The clinic posted pictures of her recovery on its Facebook page.

Amid the deep freeze that has swept across the USA, an astonishing sight greeted staff at an animal hospital - a cat frozen in snow.

It wasn't clear how long the cat had been there.

The polar vortex was raging in the Upper Midwest last week, and temperatures had dropped below zero on the morning of January 31 in the city of Kalispell, Mont., near Glacier National Park.

The owners did not want to be identified.

The furball has always lived outdoors - so the doctor suspects something happened to her to curl up in the position she was frozen in. The clinic said there were some signs of injury and they believe she couldn't get to her "warm spot". "She couldn't get back to her normal little hiding spots that she goes to".

Clark said Fluffy's owners plan to try to keep her inside for now.
