Fluffy's owners took her to the Animal Clinic of Kalispell in the USA state of Montana after they discovered the injured cat buried under the white layer of snow on January 31.

The cat's owners rushed their "essentially frozen and unresponsive" pet named Fluffy to the Animal Clinic of Kalispell, where staff members worked to remove the caked-on ice off of her fur.

After Clark, Dr. China Corum and their staff picked the ice off Fluffy's coat and she started moving around, they sent her to an emergency clinic to help raise her body temperature.

The clinic wrote on Facebook her temperature was low but had recovered after she was thawed for many hours and was now completely normal.

The cat was discharged to its owners the same night and when Dr Clark checked in a few days later, Fluffy appeared to be back to normal.

"Amazing success and survival story from this week", the post read. Some clients found their injured cat buried in snow.

Rick Zamperin: Toronto Raptors general manager Masai Ujiri is going all in
His shooting woes had become a hot topic among fans of the Raptors, who have struggled with the deep ball in recent weeks. Toronto played short-handed due to the trades Thursday night but still pulled out a 119-101 win over the Hawks.


"They didn't think twice and they brought her straight to us to treat her medically", Dutter said. "We'll see if Fluffy likes that or Fluffy doesn't like that", he said.

The three-year-old cat mostly stayed outdoors before, but now she'll be staying inside - where it's nice and warm.

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

She remained an indoor-outdoor cat, and last Thursday the couple found her frozen outside.

Fluffy's owners will keep her inside after her wild adventure.
