Foster mom's crooked nose

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
I finally got my finances fixed and decided to buy myself a present. My first DSLR Camera!

I got a Nikon D60 which is entry level but still very nice.

Here's a good example of what i've been saying about poor mom cat.



To see how crooked it really is click this and see the original size

Oh, poor baby! I wonder if it can be fixed surgically?

She's very cute. I wonder how that happened to her nose. Does it hinder her breathing or give her any problems?

She's a sweetie but I think there might be something wrong with her. She does 'strange' things sometimes.

It's also strange how she never opens her eyes all the way. She always has this dopey look in her eyes. She doesn't act sluggish, just looks like that.

She doesn't have trouble breathing but sometimes it gets fluid in the right side and she sort of sneezes. I don't think it troubles her much, but I wonder how much her sense of smell is damaged.

She's a foster obviously, and if we can't find her a GOOD home she can stay right here as long as she wants.

I wonder if whatever happened to her nose also caused some nerve damage in her face.

Aww poor thing! I love that pic. she is really cute. She looks so small too! Are you sure she was the mama cat to all those kittens?? Give her a good petting session for me her face is just priceless.

Bless you for caring about her and opening your home to her for as long as it takes for her to find a great home! The world needs more good people like you

She's very very cute, her crooked nose makes her extra special. I agree with Goldycat, perhaps something happened to her nose (or she's born that way) and it somehow pinches a nerve that makes her eyes not open fully. She does look very dopey

Maybe a vet check could be scheduled to see if its affecting her in any way, but I guess its not an emergency, and her kittens need her around for now.

yeah she's the absolute sweetest. I think you guys are right though, she is probably just a little agitated. Today I went in to sit with her and she popped right up and wanted tummy rubs again. She was really affectionate after not being so for a few days.

It's so sad when she meows. When i come in she meows a LOT and it sounds like a panicked scream. She just sounds so pathetic.

When I first got her I told them they were wrong when they said she was at least 2. She's so tiny i said she couldn't be much more than 1. After having her for awhile and really getting a look at her body, fur and overall movements, I don't think she's a young cat at all. The pads on her feet are really worn, and some of her gray hair looks more like aged gray than natural.

Oh no... poor girl screams when she sees you? Kidding! Its obvious she loves having your company and getting belly-rubs.

As for the worn pawpads, she was a stray cat if I'm not mistaken, so she could have done a lot more walking than a housecat. Not too sure about the gray hair.

Awww that's great to hear!!

Going off what you've described, she's really become attached to you

Someone did mention possible nerve damage and I was thinking that, too. Poor thing has had a hard life.

I've seen a cat with a crooked nose like that, had been kicked in the face as a kitten and never vetted.

I think I speak for everyone here when I say to that:

I agree that that is likely damage from when she was very young. It might not have been intentional; kittens do get hurt on a very regular basis. And, on a kitten, the damage might not even be visible.
