This cat is cute as a button.

A kitten who suffered serious facial injuries after being attacked by a dog is now recovering — with plastic buttons being used to help keep the feline’s stitches together.

The Angell Animal Medical Center shared images of the cat, whose name is Juicebox, that show a green and red button on either side of his nose.

“Yes, those are BUTTONS on his face — to hold his sutures in place!” the animal center wrote in a Facebook post last week.

Juicebox is also seen wearing a protective cone in the photos.

The kitten, who is 7 months old, is now on the “road to recovery” after being treated veterinarians, the center said.

The facility asked people to support Juicebox by making donations toward his medical bills, which cost close to $2,000 thus far.

The medical center shared plans to help the kitten find a new home once his recovery is complete.
