Animal lovers, rejoice!

Here's a story that should make you smile.

Fluffy the cat was discovered in a snow bank on January 31.

Fluffy was frozen in the ice. The low in nearby Whitefish, Montana, "was a bone-chilling 8 degrees," according to one report.

The area had received 16 inches of snow during the month.

Dr. Jevon Clark, who works at the Animal Clinic of Kalispell, told ABC News that when Fluffy's new owners brought her in, she was so cold that her temperature didn't even register on a thermometer.

Fluffy's temperature registered at a bottom range of 90 degrees.

Dr. Clark says normal temperatures for cats are around 101 degrees.

Fluffy was taken to the emergency room when doctors realized her temperature was still too low after about two hours of using warm water and blankets.

A few hours passed before she finally began to show signs of recovery.

Just look!

The animal clinic also shared the news with its Facebook followers:

"Amazing success and survival story from this week. Some clients found their injured cat buried in snow."
"They brought her to us essentially frozen and unresponsive. Her temperature was very low but after many hours she recovered and is now completely normal."
"Fluffy is amazing!"

Fluffy is indeed amazing, and people are thrilled that she's doing well.

Though this is indeed an unnerving thought...

...we believe this might be the actual reason she chose not to depart this mortal coil.

Fluffy is now back at home with her owners... and she's now an indoor cat.

That's probably for the best.


Being woken up suddenly is not very good for our health.

Especially for the elderly, it's not something to make a habit of. Sleep interruption can increase blood pressure, cause a worsened self image, and cause a day filled with irritation and confusion.

No one wants to be woken up, but there are definitely some reasons for being woken up that are worse than your alarm clock.

We went to Ask Reddit to find out some of the worst reasons people have been woken up.

People have a habit of excusing crap behavior - honestly because it's often easier in the short term. Long term = flaming dumpster fire.

We live in a time where we are critically re-examining how we pay workers. After a two-year-long pandemic where some low-income and "unskilled" jobs were deemed "essential," we now must put our money where our mouth is.

For too long in the world have incredibly important jobs been overlooked or else outright maligned. Teachers in the USA make some of the least money, career-wise, and have some of the hardest jobs. Dancers pay to put their bodies through hell with no guarantee of paid work after training.

What causes a small town to die?

Honestly, there can be quite a few factors, but perhaps the biggest one is that small towns often lack the upward mobility opportunities that are more available in urban areas.

As a result, many towns around the United States for instance have lost tens of millions of people as their populations seek jobs and opportunities elsewhere.

And what remains of these places can be pretty sketchy.

People told us more after Redditor RadicalizedSnackWrap asked the online community,

"What's a super sketchy US city that we never hear about?"
