  • Frozen, unresponsive cat brought back to life by vets

Her owners found her outside near their Montana home last week.

The animal clinic posted before and after pictures of Fluffy's unexpected recovery with this final sentence: "Fluffy is wonderful!" Some clients found their injured cat buried in snow.

Fluffy's body temperature was so low it did not even register on a thermometer.

Fluffy's owners weren't home when she got stuck in the snow, so they aren't sure how it happened. She had suffered an injury that prevented her from returning indoors.

The clinic knew Fluffy would survive once they heard growling.

"It was all hands on deck, with two veterinarians and four technicians that afternoon", Andrea Dutter, executive director of the clinic, told TODAY.


Fluffy the cat was brought into the Animal Clinic fo Kalispell, Montana, on January 31, when temperatures hit a low of 9F as parts of the United States were hit with a polar vortex.

Clark and his associate, Dr. China Corum, D.V.M., used a variety of methods to defrost Fluffy. According to reports, the vet team used warm water, towels, hairdryers and intravenous fluids to slowly bring her back from the brink of death.

She remained an indoor-outdoor cat, and last Thursday the couple found her frozen outside. At her follow-up appointment this past Tuesday, Fluffy was rechecked and cleared with a clean bill of health. "We'll see if Fluffy likes that or Fluffy doesn't like that", he said.

Fluffy is one lucky feline.

Extreme cold weather is not only unsafe for people but for animals as well.
