Fluffy recovered and is now back home - as an indoor cat. Temperatures were hovering around 10 degrees outside at the time.

Her owners discovered her buried in the snow near their Kalispell, Montana, home on January 31.

Unresponsive, with ice matted to her fur, Fluffy's owners prayed for a miracle as they carried their beloved pet into the Animal Clinic of Kalispell. After a few more hours, Fluffy finally began to show signs of recovery. "Fluffy is incredible!" the clinic said.

"She [was] crouched down looking like she's hunting something or something's in the snow bank", Dr Clark said. Despite her harrowing encounter, clinic vets told KULR that by the evening, Fluffy was seemingly back to her normal self and now appears to be recovering.

The clinic posted pictures of the recovery on its Facebook page.

The lucky escape serves as a warning to pet owners who allow their pets outside in freezing cold winter temperatures.

Russian DM says new anti-US missiles must be developed
The reason for the subtle cold war is the United States fears of resurgent Russian Federation . But Moscow insists the disputed 9M729 missile is allowed under the treaty.

The three-year-old cat mostly stayed outdoors before, but now she'll be staying inside - where it's nice and warm.

The owners don't want to be identified. The clinic shared a photo of the unfrozen Fluffy, showcasing her lovely, long fur.

"These crabby cats are survivors", said Dr. Jevon Clark, who owns the clinic.

He suspects something traumatic happened that caused her to curl up outside instead of returning to her normal hiding spots.

"Either something fell on her or she fell or something chased her and she got injured ..."
