Wow, take a look at poor Fluffy in the state her pet parents found her.
(Fluffy when she was found)
Poor Fluffy decided to venture out in the freezing cold and snow. But while long hair can help a cat keep warm in cold temperature, poor Fluffy soon became one big snowball.
Fluffy was certainly less than her fluffy self, in fact, she was unresponsive. And staff at the Kalispell Animal clinic, where Fluffy was rushed couldn’t even get her temperature to register on their thermometers.
The snow and ice had penetrated Fluffy’s fur and it took staff hours working on her to raise her temperature. And what did they use?
State of the art equipment?
Well, I am sure they did! But for the most part, Fluffy was warmed back to health with blankets and A HAIRDRYER, of course!
It really is a miracle and well done to Fluffy’s fast acting owners and all the staff at the clinic.
Now, next time your kitty has a bath or has gotten wet and cold, you can be assured that you are using veterinary-approved equipment as you give your furbaby a loving kitty blow dry and style!
(Fluffy – at least one life still remaining after vets give her a kitty blowdry and style!)
Of course, always take care in cold weather with your pets.
If your cat is going out in the snow, be super careful. Cats are not like dogs that are satisfied with emptying their bowels in a hurry after a frolic in the snow. Due to the diminutive size of these tiny tigers a snow drift could cause serious problems with no effective launch pad for these jumping climbers to escape from.
Next time it snows, let’s hope Fluffy chooses to stay indoors and look on at the picturesque scene.
