Fluffy used up one of her nine lives.

The owners of Fluffy, who live in Kalispell, Montana, in the far northwest of the state, found her in a snow bank on Jan. 31 -- unresponsive, with her fur matted with ice. The low in nearby Whitefish was a bone-chilling 8 degrees on Jan. 31, and they had received about 16 inches of snow for the month.

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 animal hospital shared the good news on Tuesday morning that Fluffy has made a full recovery and is back at home with her owners.

The title is misleading. "Brought back to life" implies having been clinically dead. This cat wasn't. It was always alive, just unresponsive.

And it wasn't frozen, just suffering from hypothermia.

If the cat had really been frozen this would have been a much more interesting news story.

I blame the owners for letting the cat outside. I never let mine out, it is dangerous for them, and dangerous to wildlife.

Once I realized the cat was okay, I had to laugh because when I saw this on the news this morning, the story started out by saying "this cat only has eight lives left".

While I'm happy the cat made a full recovery it should never have been outside in those weather conditions in the first place.

Our cat would never have to deal with severe cold ( west coast Oz) but it is still an indoors cat. Safer for him, safer for the local birds, lizards etc.
