Montana cat found stuck in the snow, freezing cold

KALISPELL, Mont. (CNN) -- It's been a wild winter for "Fluffy" the cat.

She had to be thawed out after getting buried in the snow. Her owners found her outside near their Montana home last week.

They rushed her to a nearby animal clinic to get her examined. A vet says Fluffy's body temperature was so low, it was difficult to get an IV into her.

They used warm water, hair dryers, heated towels, and a heated kennel to get her body temperature back to normal. Luckily, she made it out just fine after spending a night in the ER.

Fluffy's owners weren't home when she got stuck in the snow, so they aren't sure how it happened. The 3-year-old cat had mostly stayed outside before, but now she's staying inside - where it's nice and warm.
