Rescue Cat Turns Her Crooked Jaw Into A Beautiful Smile

The cat pictured here has an odd smile. The cat, named Duchess, was hit by a car in El Paso, Texas, and the impact messed up her jaw, but Dr. Meyer thought he could fix it. But given the severity of the accident and her overall health Duchess was given only a 20% chance of survival.

But, you know we wouldn’t be telling you this story if Duchess hadn’t survived. She did survive the surgery to fix her jaw and her other immediate health issues.

To properly fix her jaw, they had to remove most of Duchess’ teeth and wire it. After getting her surgery, Duchess would now need a home.

In walks Crystal Tate. When Crystal first saw Duchess, she was just beginning to recover. Duchess had been a stray and was very thin, and then there was the crooked face.

None of those things mattered to Crystal. She saw a young cat that needed a home.

Crystal came to see Duchess every day – which wasn’t that hard because Crystal worked at the clinic, Adobe Animal Hospital and Clinic, where Duchess was staying.

Crystal and Duchess ‘talked’ and spent time together.

Finally, Duchess healed enough that Crystal could take her home. Crystal had two other dogs and a cat at home, and Duchess fit right in.

Yes, Duchess’ jaw is still crooked, but Crystal says that they may be able to do some reconstructive surgery at a later date.
