This is the follow-up story of Duchess!
It seems that Duchess has learned how to smile!
When we first covered the story of this precious kitty, her life was have been getting off to a rough and rocky start.
She was a stray cat who had been struck by a car but a vet named Dr. Meyer never gave up on her. Duchess underwent surgery on her jaw and the operation was a complete success considering the shape she was originally in.
“Her chances of survival were slim, but she was a fighter and pulled through,” Crystal Tate told Amy at Love Meow.
“The day I first met Duchess, her mouth was just beginning to heal and the feeding tube had just been removed, and she was very thin…
“The lowest meow caught my attention; her eyes showed so much sadness but her purrs showed so much love and hope.”
“Everyday I would spend time with her, petting her, talking to her and when the doctors asked me if I could give her a home a few weeks later I knew immediately we were meant to land in each other lives.”
“It was a transition for us both, I had never cared for a special needs kitty and she had never experienced life as a special needs kitty but we learned together.”
Duchess can finally meet each new day with a bright, beautiful smile that she can call her own!
How would YOU like to wake up to this sunrise smile everyday?
“And now she’s grown so much and I couldn’t be prouder, from a cat whose chances of survival were at 20% to a spunky little love bug who climbs on everything and loves on everyone.”
“She reminds me everyday that each day is a gift and that miracles really do happen.”
The best endings will always be the happy ones!
