Meet Duchess, a Siamese cat who had a rough beginning to her life. She was found as a stray with a broken jaw due to being hit by a car. Thankfully, rescuers brought her to the Adobe Animal Hospital and Clinic in Texas, where she got the treatment and medical care that she so desperately needed.
“The impact from the car broke her jaw, and seeing the condition she was in, most other places would have chosen to euthanize her.” Crystal Tate, an employee at the animal hospital said. However, the hospital staffs didn’t give up on her and repaired her jaw.
Although Duchess had undergone the successful surgery, she would never be able to eat properly again, as her jaw had been shattered and she only had a few teeth left. She kept staying at the clinic for a month to recover after the surgery. She had to eat through a feeding tube and take a number of different medications.
In spite of all of this, Crystal fell in love with Duchess and wanted to give her a forever home. “Every day, 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 be in each other’s lives. “
Duchess now has a new family at Crystal’s home, including a Siberian Husky named Joshua, her cat brother, Oliver, and a bichon named Peaches. She loves having a family and spends her days playing with them as much as she can.
It’s wonderful that Duchess finally found a forever home after everything she’s been through. Although Duchess needed a few more medical procedures after coming into Crystal’s home, she’s been getting stronger every day because she knows she has a loving family.
