It was discovered in the snow outside her owner’s home in Montana that Fluffy was “significantly frozen” and “almost dead”.
There were temperatures between -1 (30F) and -8 degrees Fahrenheit in this landlocked state in the Northwestern United States (17F). It’s awful to think of how the poor cat is attempting to survive in these surroundings despite everything.
When the homeowner found her, she was immediately taken to an animal clinic where she was given medical treatment. Her staff initially believed she was dead until they examined her, listened to her, and realized she was still alive. Her veterinarians were very diligent in their efforts to save her life.
During Fluffy’s arrival at the Animal Clinic of Kalispell, says Andrea Dutter, the clinic’s executive director, “our first thoughts were exactly the same as they would have been if it had been any other patient in distress.” In these kinds of situations, we have to take everything one minute at a time.” We need to get this precious baby out of the freezer! “Let’s work together to get this done!”
Fluffy was able to fully recover in the hospital after spending hours in the emergency department with her owner. As in Fluffy’s case, she has proven to the entire world that she has the will to survive. Fluffy is now back at home with her humans, where she will be able to relax and recover this time around.
Despite the fact that she was used to living outside, we hope that her miraculous recovery will inspire her to reconsider the advantages of staying indoors.
The doctors and staff are grateful that the owners of fluffy took proactive actions in a difficult situation by seeking medical assistance for their pet.
Fluffy’s recovery is a miracle. A cat that has become frozen like an iceberg is fortunate to have received medical treatment at the appropriate moment and to be surrounded by such compassionate people.
We hope that Fluffy’s story will raise awareness among other pet owners about the importance of keeping their indoor and outdoor pets safe, as well as the importance of seeking medical assistance immediately rather than treating them on their own.
