Kitten with a broken jaw

This morning (December 28, 2014) a good samaritan found this little kitten on the way to work outside, the temperature in Sterlitamak (Russia) is 11F or -12C. The lady went to the store and bought dry cat food but as soon as she tried to feed the kitten, she could see the horrible condition of this animal.

The kitten had a broken jaw apparently because the jaws are not aligned and the mouth is not closing, also there is blood on its face.

SV group took the kitten to their foster care later today. Right now the kitten is in a warm crate being fed soft cat food. The vet is scheduled to make a house call tomorrow morning to assess and diagnose the kitten’s condition.

At foster home. The kitten cannot fully close the mouth and cannot eat because of the broken jaw.
