The cat was discharged to her owners the same night, and when Clark checked her on Tuesday, she appeared to be back to normal, he said. China Corum, D.V.M., used a variety of methods to defrost Fluffy.

Her body temperature was below what the clinic's thermometers could read, minus 32 degrees.

"It took about an hour for her temperature to return to normal".

After about two hours of using warm water and blankets, the cat's temperature was still too low, so they took her to the emergency room. "Fluffy is awesome!" the clinic said.

"These crabby cats are survivors", Clark said. They then used specialized heating pads and heated cages, which helped her to regain consciousness.

"She was frozen", said Andrea Dutter, executive director of the Animal Clinic of Kalispell.

Dutter said that Fluffy is three years old and had always been an outdoor cat, but a couple who had recently moved to the area chose to take her in.

Clark said Fluffy's owners plan to try to keep her inside for now. For Fluffy, her owners made a life-saving decision.
