EL PASO, Tx. – A team of veterinarians went the extra mile to save a cat who was hit by a car. Now, she’s stealing hearts across the country.
Duchess, a young Siamese cat from El Paso, Texas, was brought into Adobe Animal Hospital and Veterinary Clinic getting hit by a car last October, according to ABC News.
“The impact from the car broke her jaw, and seeing the condition she was in, most other places probably would’ve chosen to euthanize her,” veterinary assistant, Crystal Tate, told ABC News. “But the doctors here thought we she should give her a chance, so they attempted surgery to repair her jaw.”
Tate fell in love with Duchess’ fighting spirit, and adopted her after helping to treat her.
Now, Duchess is a viral sensation online. Her Facebook page, Duchess – The Miracle Kitty, has thousands of followers. Tate posts updates about her condition daily.
“Duchess’ jaw is still crooked and it will be for the rest of her life, but it hasn’t crushed her spirit,” Tate said. “We are still learning her quirks and helping her live her new life, but we wouldn’t have it any other way.”
