Fluffy was unresponsive and nearly frozen when her owners returned home and found her later in the day — but thanks to her quick-thinking family and the Animal Clinic of Kalispell, the cat has since made a miraculous recovery.
"They've always been great pet owners so they didn't hesitate to bring her straight here," Andrea Dutter, executive director of the clinic, told The Dodo. "It was all hands on deck. We had both doctors here working to thaw the snow and ice off her with warm water, and they were also blow-drying her and rotating in warm towels from the dryer."
While Fluffy had a heartbeat when she arrived to the clinic, her body temperature was too cold to even register on the doctors' thermometers. It took nearly an hour of warming the cat for her to be able to move.
