A FEARSOME OVERBITE QUEEN 😩🤣 #goofberry

There’s a new kid on the block! That’s right—Gooseberry met the hummingbirds today! Goosey is almost a month older than the birds, but she’s the actually smallest of them all. In fact, all of her siblings were a lot bigger than her...and they were adopted from the shelter weeks ago! It’s nice for her to have some friends who are close to her size. 🥰 #goofberry

*Donations requested!* Our kitten Gooseberry saw a fantastic dental specialist yesterday, and we received the unfortunate news that her overbite (class 2 malocclusion) is so severe that she will need two dental surgeries. Gooseberry’s lower canines (fangs) collide with the roof of her mouth. This positioning of her teeth is preventing her jaw from being able to grow—as soon as her canines came in at 4 weeks they began to act as a stopper, preventing her jaw from growing properly, which is why she has the disproportionately small chin of a 4 week old even though she is almost 12 weeks old! She’s also tiny tiny tiny—only the weight of a 7 week old because she has struggled to obtain proper nutrition due to her issues with her mouth. Left untreated, her canines will continue puncturing her soft palate, likely doing serious damage. By removing all of the lower deciduous canines and incisors, her jaw will have an opportunity to grow a bit more, her palate will be protected, and she’ll have an easier time eating. We hope that we can do this first surgery as soon as she hits 2 pounds. At 6-7 months, she will need a second surgery to address the adult teeth—either removal or pulpotomy. We will cover this expense for her future adopter and ensure that she is set up for a healthy life. We took Gooseberry on because we believe she is worthy of support and protection.

Poor Gooseberry had a rough day! We had a long drive to a feline dental specialist to get answers about her condition (a severe overbite—called a class 2 malocclusion—which causes her lower canines to collide with her soft palate.) We hoped her case would be mild, but it is unfortunately quite severe, and she will need two separate dental surgeries. 😥 I’ll share more about it tomorrow, but right now me and Haroun are just trying to give her some love and let her know that we’ve got her back. Please consider making a tax-deductible contribution towards her surgerical procedures at the @orphankittenclub link. We greatly appreciate all who enable us to take on these more serious medical cases who would otherwise have no chance. Gooseberry’s life has value, and she is worth it. ♥️ #goofberry

Friends, I’d like to introduce you to the new overlord of overbites...GOOSEBERRY! Bow before her wondrous bb chin, for we are truly not worthy! Gooseberry is a young kitten with mandibular brachygnathism, which is a fancy medical term for a shortened jaw à la @tunameltsmyheart. Because her teeth are not properly aligned, her lower canines collide with the roof of her mouth, which can make it difficult for her to eat and can also cause damage to the soft palate over time. Another side effect is dangerous levels of cuteness.🚨 We’re setting an appointment with a dental specialist who can tell us if her teeth need to be rounded, pulled, or if they can stay as-is, but the trick is that she will need follow-up dental work when her adult canines come in (in about 3 months.) All that means is that her future adopter will need to agree to take her in for an appointment this winter, which we will pay for. Piece of cake! Goosey came from a shelter that does incredible work and that loved her dearly (seriously, I’ve never seen more shelter employees ooh and aah over a kitten in my life!) but the shelter was in difficult position because their program cannot adopt out cats who require follow up care, as Gooseberry will. That’s where rescue partners come in! @orphankittenclub is fortunate that we have the ability to take on special cases like hers, thanks to our small roster and our foster-to-adopt program. This is why organizations work together: what might be difficult for one can be easy for another, so we each play to our strengths as we collaboratively save lives. Gooseberry is a perfect angel who slept basically on top of my head all night, and she already has a lot of nicknames from me. Goofberry, Silly Goose, Lucy Goosey! Welcome, Goosey! #goofberry

I'm a brave boii and all that but Dogtor visits sort of scare me, hence the face! . . . . . . . . . . . . #goofberry
