A Montana cat named Fluffy was found frozen and buried in snow by her owners this week - and brought back to life by a team of veterinarians.

Fluffy - who is an outdoor cat - was found by her humans last Thursday, cacked in snow and ice, cold and unresponsive. "Her temperature was very low but after many hours she recovered and is now completely normal", the post read.

Vets at the Animal Clinic of Kalispell used warm water, warming blankets and heating pads to bring Fluffy's temperature up and back to life.

The animal clinic posted before and after pictures of Fluffy's unexpected recovery with this final sentence: "Fluffy is wonderful!"

"But really she was just so packed in ice and snow, you couldn't really tell she was alive until you looked at her and started listening to her and realized that she's still alive".

I'm not sure if this was Fluffy's attempt at being cast in the adaptation of Stephen King's animal horror, Pet Sematary, but if anything it's a ideal example of why we should be taking care of our pets, and other wildlife, during periods of extreme weather.
