Rescue kitty turns broken jaw into a beautiful smile! (Gallery)
What a happy loving kitty!
Duchess is living a wonderful life now in her forever home, but she had a pretty rough beginning.
Duchess was a stray who was brought into the vet clinic after being hit by a car, which broke her jaw, and banged her up pretty bad.
"Most places would've just euthanized her, but by some miracle Duchess got lucky and Dr. Meyer took a chance and repaired her jaw. Her jaw was wired back in place (or close to it) and she had the majority of her teeth removed," said Crystal Tate, her human mom.
She was in recovery for about a month, she was on a feeding tube and lots of medicine. Her chances of survival were slim, but she was a fighter and pulled through.
Look at that smile!
"I met her the day I arrived at the clinic for my first day and ended up bringing her home with me less than a week later."
Her jaw is still crooked and it will be for the rest of her life, but it hasn't crushed her spirit.
Duchess wasn't expected to survive, but now she's a happy house kitty who loves on everybody.
"She reminds me everyday that each day is a gift and that miracles really do happen."
That crooked smile is beautiful and makes everyone melt!
Who could say no to this face??
Now that Duchess has found a forever home with a forever family, the difference is palpable, but she still needs help!
Check out her GoFundMe page, where Crystal is collecting money for future treatments.
