Frozen Cat Revived

Fluffy's owners went looking for her in Kalispell, Montana, on January 31, when the temperature was only 8 degrees above zero (-13C). They found her stiff and unresponsive in a snowbank, matted with snow, as you see here.

Dr. Jevon Clark, who works at the Animal Clinic of Kalispell, told ABC News when they brought Fluffy to the clinic her temperature was so slow it didn't even register on a thermometer -- with a bottom range of 90 degrees. According to Clark, cats' temperatures normally are around 101 degrees.

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. After a few more hours, Fluffy finally began to show signs of recovery.

The clinic waited several days to be sure, and then announced earlier this week that Fluffy has made a complete recovery. However, one thing has changed permanently- Fluffy is now an indoor cat. ABC News has the story. -via reddit

It's best to keep your cats indoors. This protects them from not just inclement weather, but also traffic, coyotes, dogs, other cats, and evil people who like to harm pets.

8 degrees above zero isn't that cold, here in New Zealand during February, we sometimes go that low over night, but during the winter months of July and August, the daytime temperature is often 8 degrees where I live, dropping to 1 or 2 some nights, other times dropping right down to zero, and that's when my pet's water bowls freeze over.
I don't see how that cat was so cold at 8 degrees.
