Frozen cat thawed out after being found frozen in Montana snow bank

Frozen cat thawed out after being found frozen in Montana snow bank

The frozen feline was found by its owner in a Kalispell snowbank late last week when the temperatures dropped to a chilly -13C, its fur clumped with snow and ice, ABC News reported.

"She [was] crouched down looking like she's hunting something or something's in the snow bank", Dr Clark said.

As the temperature just barely registered double digits in Kalispell, Montana last week, people were sure to bundle up if they HAD to go outside.

Fluffy is normally a little crabby, so when she began growling after about an hour, Dr Clark knew she would be fine.

The very lucky cat is now back home. This is far below the normal body temperature for cats, which usually hovers around 101 degrees, Clark said.

Five Cases Of Measles Confirmed in Texas
A hallmark of measles is a rash that begins as flat, red spots on the face and spreads down the neck to the rest of the body. The first dose is administered at between 12 through 15 months of age and the second dose at between 4 and 6 years of age.


"She was essentially frozen", said Andrea Dutter, executive director, reportedly.

She was so cold the staff struggled to get an IV in her right away. But even with her eight remaining lives, we hope she avoids the outdoors for a while.

Veterinarian Dr. China Corum cared for the cat until she started to bounce back after a few hours of treatment, WPEC-TV reports.

Because the owners weren't home at the time, they aren't positive how Fluffy got stuck in the snow.

The 3-year-old cat was mostly an outdoor cat that the owners "acquired" when they moved into their new home. The clinic said there were some signs of injury and they believe she couldn't get to her "warm spot". She will be staying inside from now on.
