Gooseberry is a kitten with a severe overbite. Her overbite might be adorable, but sadly, babies like her are at risk of medical complications and even euthanasia due to their conditions. In this video, I'll show you how you can help kittens with severe overbites so that they have a chance to thrive.

  • And chick pea is the over bite king

  • Has anyone ever delt with a kitten's teeth being Misaligned, and when they eat they rub on each other and make a noise? I know that sounds bizarre but I know the people on here are dedicated and truly love their kitties so I thought I would ask :)

    • Neither Gooseberry nor Chickpea are male, hence the “queen” part.

  • Dental stuff is no joke. I had the cleft palate, so nothing between my mouth cavity and nose cavity...thankfully none of it affected my appearance, but think of the angst of waiting to get your baby to the right weight, only to have to finally get it done at 16 months because their weight just wouldn’t peak...I do not envy the stress I put my parents through. Also - how would people think that a cute lil’ cat like Gooseberry wouldn’t be in pain??? Those eyes...I started crying too.

  • I started noticing that my kittens chin was really small. He’s a year old now, and watching this I brought it up to my parents. They said that since he isn’t having trouble eating, he’s fine. Recently, it could be a coincidence since he goes outside and comes inside (we live in a very woodsy area) but he lost a top canine. I don’t this it’s associated but it still worries me he has an overbite and lost a tooth. My parents have yet to agree to take him to a vet because they think he’ll be alright. Any advice? (My parents care deeply about him, he has a really strong bond with my father.)

  • I watch all of your videos because I love cats / kittens so much and you are so informative. My husband got me a kitten today and he knows nothing about malocclusion or anything. But we got the last of the litter who has a severe overbite. And because of this video I knew exactly what it was and we are going to take him to the vet as soon as possible and see a cat dentist. Im so grateful for the videos you post they are so informative. Thank you so much, now I will know how to provide my little kitty with the help he needs and I know to do it ASAP. thank you hannah I am so grateful

  • Awwww so sad if the teeth puncture the pallet. Must be awkward for the cat but removing the teeth that could do that is the logical solution Your tats look awesome btw. I’d love to see a video about them but this channel isn’t the right one for that.

  • This is so helpful.. I think the mother feral I’m caring for has this issue and I never would have known what r was if not for your video. I just noticed that wet food would drip from her upper incisors and her profile looked different. I’m not sure what to do to get her treated but now I know she should get checked out and her babies should too! Thanks!!!

  • This makes me so angry. The first Queen we ever fostered, the runt had a horrible overbite -- even worse than gooseberry. The rescue org we were working with gave us NO guidance on how to care for her. The whole litter had weird problems and the mom did as well (she would only eat from my hand but was skin and bones) and the Rescue just treated us like we were doing a crappy job. And we did bc no one told us anything! Even so, I know that kitten lived bc of us. We gave her extra feedings all the time bc we could see everyone just pushed her out of the way. I watch your videos all the time. When I am ready to start fostering again I will be so much more informed and you are the reason.

  • ..... Just realized that my now 4 year old cat Satchmo has a overbite (presumably because he s an little incest kitten), we never thought much of it and call him our little vampy-pampy.😅 Before you come at us, we went and go to a vet regularly because he has/had a little hole in his heart cleft, which needed to be monitored, and never did our vet told us about any risk because of his dental issue or ever mentioned that there was an issue and all... What now? ☹️

  • my sweet calico, tuna, just had to have surgery to remove her left upper canine a month ago. she’s about 3 years old (i adopted her when she was a stray) and the vet said the tooth had been injured sometime when she was very young so the root had disconnected from the gum and was rotting inside there. she also was very sleepy the first few days of recovery, but she is all healed up and doing amazing now! tip for owners: look out for drooling or bad-smelling saliva. that could indicate your cat has a dental or gum problem and they should see a vet as soon as possible!

  • This video helped explain a lot. Many of my kittens haven't made it & I couldn't figure out why. I own and rescue many cats; but here in Arizona they don't think a Veterinarian is needed or a priority in most areas. (the one place in Globe, Az has actually turned me away and hung up on me many times over the years, flat out refusing to care for my cats! "We don't take new clients!!" a nasty old woman shrieked at me and hung up. Another time she actually shouted "WE DON'T CARE!!" at me before hanging up. One of my boys was seriously ill w/ upper respiratory infection,and I was begging them to let me bring him in. ) ..I tragically lost my Ghoulie Boy for that reason. He was a great big friendly Tuxedo cat born here on Halloween, with the loudest motor you've ever heard. Broke my heart to lose him. ) ... so if something tragic happens/develops, I am powerless to do anything but comfort the kitties best I can. It's very frusterating living out here for that reason. I continue to care for the ten other cats I own here, and strays/abandoned cats that also live in the nearby area. Cats have taught me that I am useful for something, that someone needs me to be here. We Love you, Kitten Lady!!!

  • Dear Hannah. I live in Ireland although i originally came from the uk. Irish people seem to have a weird attitude to cats and i have rescued and fostered kittens because if i dont they would drown them. There is a program now called cat hospital and the vet seems really cool. I know you have enough to do saving kittens and cats in the US but maybe if you reach out something could be done in ireland tnx Annette

  • That overbite looks just adorable. I really hope the condition doesn't have a genetic basis, i don't want breeders trying to get a breed with a large percentage of kittens getting an overbite. Even if when treated it wouldn't decrease the quality of life, there would be people who wouldn't get the surgeries, and just look at the cute little faces and make fast decisions. Hope in humanity and all that, but even if i believe most people are good, some will be just damn evil in the sake of marketable things. Like lives of the precious little animals.
