On July 11, 2019, Jaws was tossed out of a truck window in front of the Petco on Cajalco in Corona falling through the bushes landing on his chin.
The store clerk called Purrfect Fit Cat Rescue to lend a paw in saving this little guy. Upon inspection at the vet he was found to have a dislocated jaw and a hairline fracture that was obtained previous to being tossed out the window.
That fracture started turning into a bony growth on his lower right jaw which caused much swelling in his mouth extending to the back of his throat. The surgical dental specialist and the vet feared it was an aggressive cancer.
Jaws was given antibiotics and anti-inflammatory meds and had a biopsy done. After a week of nail biting I received word this morning that it is not cancer!
Despite all these struggles, he remains happy, playful and an absolute sweetheart! He has a strong loud purr-motor and still enjoys sitting on the vet’s shoulder while she writes her notes at work and watches TV at home. He also enjoys sitting on the recliner and watching the vet’s cockatiels and chasing her older kitten and getting licked from head to toe by her rescue dog.
Overall he is doing well and the vet will continue to take care of him and make sure that whatever comes, he remains as happy and loved as possible.
So far, the specialist has been EXTREMELY generous with her time and has greatly discounted her services. However, with all the x-rays that have been taken and the anesthetic biopsy, his bills have been between $600-800.
The previous fundraiser on Facebook raised $415. As that fundraiser has ended I would like to start another one to raise more money for Jaws. He will soon be undergoing surgery to repair his dislocated jaw and neutering. He will need extensive aftercare once his jaw has been reset.
