What a happy kitty of love! Duchess is in her forever home now living a beautiful life, but she had a fairly tough start.
Duchess was a stray who was struck by a vehicle that broke her jaw and banged her up fairly badly after being taken to the vet clinic.
“Most locations would have just euthanized her, but by some miracle Duchess got fortunate and Dr. Meyer took a opportunity and repaired her jaw. Her jaw was wired back in location (or near it) and she removed most of her teeth,”
said her human mother, Crystal Tate. She was about a month in recovery, on a feeding tube and a lot of medicine. Her survival chances were slim, but she was a fighter and pulled through. Look at the smile!
“I encountered her on my first day at the clinic and finally brought her home with me less than a week later.”
Her jaw is still crooked and will be for the rest of her life, but her spirit hasn’t been crushed.
Duchess wasn’t supposed to survive, but she’s now a happy kitty house that loves everyone.
“She reminds me everyday that each day is a gift and that miracles really do happen.”
That crooked smile is lovely and melts everybody!
Who could tell this face no??
The distinction is palpable now that Duchess has discovered an eternal home with an eternal family, but she still requires assistance!
