BOSTON (WHDH) – A 7-month-old cat continues on its way to recovery after being attacked by a dog at his Boston home last month.

Juicebox ‘foster mother, who nursed him back to health after the attack on January 20, shared new pictures of the adorable cat.

Juicebox suffered from head trauma, cuts and damage to the roof of the mouth as a result of the attack.

He also underwent surgery to repair multiple jaw fractures, in which veterinarians put two plastic buttons on his cheeks and two under his chin to keep the sutures in place and stabilize his jaw, according to the MSPCA Angell.

Juicebox is expected to wear its buttons for a few weeks, after which they will be completely removed.

His family made the decision to turn their cat over to the MSPCA so that after his recovery he could be moved to a new dog-free home.

Anyone interested in the launch of Juicebox can inquire about its status by completing this form.
