Miracle in Montana? An "essentially frozen and unresponsive" cat found completely buried under a mountain of snow has been saved.

The frozen feline was found by its owner in a Kalispell snowbank late last week when the temperatures dropped to a chilly -13C, its fur clumped with snow and ice, ABC News reported.

Fluffy's body temperature initially did not register on a thermometer because it was so low.

"Amazing success and survival story from this week", wrote Montana's Animal Clinic of Kalispell on Facebook.

Fluffy is now fully recovered and back home with her owners and will remain indoors for the foreseeable future. China Corum, used heating pads and heated cages to help stimulate Fluffy.

Now the exact timetable for the pullout must be decided, but the Taliban wants to see this happen in months, he said. USA and Taliban delegations met in Qatar in January and are due to meet again this month.

The clinic's executive director Andrea Dutter told CNN the staff tried to raise the cat's body temperature in a number of ways.

It was not clear how long the cat had been there, but the temperature that afternoon in Kalispell was just below freezing. "We'll see if Fluffy likes that or Fluffy doesn't like that", he said. "They have a tendency to want to live", said veterinarian Dr. Jevon Clark.

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. Not quite sure if she's made a deal with the cat devil here or had a few lives to burn, but I'm impressed.

Fluffy's owners plan to try to keep her inside for now.

She has eight lives left, but Fluffy is very lucky to be alive.
