Hi everyone, sorry I haven't been around for a while. I rescued a stray kitten the other day that some drunks were being mean to (kicking ect.). He is so cute a clasic black & white Sylvester type and so loveable to; he's a shoulder cat. Anyway there is one thing, he has a deformed bottom lip. The lip looks as if it has been skined back from the gum, one side a 1/4" farther than the other, exposing his bottom teeth and gums. It also looks as if he may have had a small hair lip on one side of his top lip that has grown together so that it only looks like a C shaped curve in his lip. It all looks like something he was born with and what I was wondering is if as he grows up (I think he's about 4 weeks old) will this cause him any problems? Does anyone know if this kind of deformity is common? Oh well, I thinks he's so cute anyway and it's not that noticeable right now because he's so small but I think it may be as he gets bigger. Hugs & Kisses, Larissa.
