A Second Chance For The Formerly Faceless Kitten

(Warning: Parts of this video shows graphic images of the kitten's injuries before and after they were repaired, so if you're squeamish, you may want to get ready to cover your eyes, or skip to the 2:05 mark)

Faris, also know as TheBunnieGirl on YouTube, is a vet technician who happened to be working when a badly injured kitten was brought in for treatment. It had been found as a stray in a garage, with superficial injuries to its face, likely as a result of trying to stay warm in a car's fan blade that was turned on. The kitten's nose was broken, and his lower left tear duct was destroyed.

While the video starts out with some graphic images of the kitten in its wounded state before and after surgery, it also reveals his truly jaw dropping transformation into a happy, healthy, and normal looking kitten thanks to the veterinarian who took the time to suture his face back together. Faris hopes this video will prove that everyone deserves a chance at life, and will likely bring you to tears, so make sure you have your tissues ready before pressing play!

Oh that did indeed bring me to tears! With all the bad news stories we see everyday I'm glad you posted this good news story - it just goes to show that if you give these injured cats a chance instead of going for the 'easy' option they can go on to have a wonderful life. I'm so glad he got adopted :)

OMC! That was wonderful to see!! Thank you to all the peoples who saw that the "Faceless Kitten" was worth saving. Our mom said if he already didn't have a home, she would have taken him in a heartbeat!!

Amazing. The vet did great work. As a former vet tech it's great to see stories like this. It's amazing how the body has the will to survive and be loved.

Stephanie, thank you so much for always posting amazing stories like this. They are my favorite posts to read.
This vet is amazing...especially because he probably had to pay for the surgery out of his own pocket.
