A Roller-Coaster Journey

Considering his unfortunate start, he was given the name Jaws!

The following morning Jaws had his surgery scheduled to reset his jaw into place. Which they would soon find out would be easier said than done.

“Since he is so young the jaw may pop back out of place due to kitten play, etc. If this happens Jaws will basically have to have his jaw wired shut until he fully heals,” a specialist explained.

Staying Positive and Remaining Hopeful

There were multiple drawbacks during surgery.

After a few attempts of resetting his jaw and it continuously popping out of place, the vet was afraid of a possible hairline fracture that couldn’t be seen. 

Further surgery was postponed, and kitten would be taken back to the specialist.

 “He’s being such a trooper though. He eats and plays well and is just over a pound so he’s likely around 6-7 weeks,” Beth stated.

The vet and her family took Jaws into their home while he waited to see the specialist for more tests.

He was kind enough to help her with paperwork and spent a lot of time snuggling.

The Waiting Game

Upon the day of his appointment, they received some very disheartening and unexpected news.

“The dental specialist found an old fracture on his lower right jaw. That was likely inflicted prior to being tossed from the truck but it appears to be healing well.”

She advised against any further surgery because of high complication rates with tiny infant kittens like Jaws. 

At about 7-8 weeks old, weighing 1.4 lbs. and performing exceptionally, she recommended scheduling his re-evaluation when his adult teeth came in around 5 ½ months of age.

Unfortunately, the following visits provided even more upsetting news.

Beth was informed that Jaws could possibly have cancer. More x-rays and a STAT order on a biopsy of his jaw were immediately taken.

Beth patiently awaited the results and remained hopeful.

All Clear and Thankful!

The day finally came that brought the good news everyone had been desperately hoping and praying for, the results of the biopsy were non-cancerous!

As fate would have it, through all the hardship and difficulties put in front of this baby kitten, Jaws overcame every obstacle and stayed strong.

Jaws is happy and living a wonderful life where he is loved and taken good care of.
