Vets Make Nick-Of-Time Rescue Of ‘Fluffy’ The Cat Found Nearly Frozen In Montana
A Montana cat and its owners were thanking their lucky stars recently as a local veterinarian and his dedicated staff were able to bring her back from the brink of death. Fluffy was found by her shocked owners frozen to the sidewalk outside of their home in the city of Kalispell. Luckily, the vet says she’ll make a full recovery.
Have You Heard The One About The Frozen Cat?
No, this isn’t the set-up for a joke. A frozen feline named Fluffy came through the doors of a small veterinary clinic recently in Kalispell, Montana, resembling a snowdrift more than a cat. Nevertheless, Dr. Jevon Clark and his staff sprung into action in the hopes that it wasn’t too late to save little Fluffy’s life.
Give Us A Sign!
As Fluffy’s owners anxiously awaited news, Dr.Clark and his team used warm towels, cage warmers, and even intravenous fluids to warm him up and elicit some kind of response from the comatose kitty. They were looking for a sign; any kind of indication that there was still life left in Fluffy’s body.
A Mighty Roar
Ok, maybe not a roar, but a low, agitated growl, finally let everyone know Fluffy was going to be alright. “These crabby cats are survivors,” Clark said. Confident that Fluffy would make a full recovery, Dr. Clark sent him to a nearby emergency clinic to keep up his body temperature. He was discharged that same evening.
How Did it Happen?
It’s unclear exactly what happened or how long Fluffy had been there when the owners returned home to find her crusted to the sidewalk, but Dr. Clark has the broad strokes. “I suspect that something traumatic happened,” Clark said. “Either something fell on her or she fell or something chased her and she got injured. She couldn’t get back to her normal little hiding spots that she goes to.”
A Fluffy Future
The three-year-old feline has always been an outside cat. Fluffy was a resident there before her owners even moved in. But, the family plans to keep her mostly inside from now on if she’ll have it. Once she knows the pleasures of modern day heating and air, she’ll be hooked.
