"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".

After their beloved two-year-old tuxedo kitty Maverik had gone missing for two days, the family assumed the dead black-and-white cat they found lying on the street outside their home was their pet.

Fluffy was found by her anxious owners-who live in Kalispell, Montana-completely buried in a snow bank on January 31, ABC News reported.

Fluffy was then taken to an emergency clinic as her temperature remained dangerously low, but Clark said she had returned to normal by that evening.

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

An incredibly fortunate cat that was "essentially frozen" after being left outside in sub-freezing temperatures has made a miraculous recovery, according to vets.

She had to be thawed out after getting buried in snow last month. The clinic said there were some signs of injury and they believe she couldn't get to her "warm spot". "Her temperature was so low our thermometer wouldn't read it, so we know it was less than 90".

It took seven hours, but eventually, doctors were able to bring her body temperature back to normal.

She was so cold the staff struggled to get an IV in her right away.

"And finally, we put her in a heated kennel".

Fluffy's owners weren't home when she got stuck in the snow, so they aren't sure how it happened.
