Well not all of my teefs, just two. I cannot believe my humans gave their permission for such a thing. Supposedly one of those teef was dead and the other was being reabsorbed. And the vet discovered I had lost three teefs all on my own. That’s five toofies gone! Hope I don’t have to get kitty dentures. Do they have those?

Tuesday was a long day. Dad dropped me off at the vet office at 8 a.m.


Teefs: In the PTU in the Cat-Only Waiting Room.

In the PTU in the Cat-Only Waiting Room.

Teefs: Waiting in the exam room. No way I was voluntarily leaving the PTU.

Waiting in the exam room. No way I was voluntarily leaving the PTU.


That was the last I saw of my parental units until Mom picked me up at 3:30 p.m. Heather, who did my toofie cleaning, met with Mom. She gave her a complete set of the x-rays of my teefs, photos taken during the procedure and diagrams and descriptions of my exam and extractions.


Look at these nice clean teefs.

Look at those nice clean toofies.


I’m supposed to be eating only stinky goodness for a few days, but I’m a tough guy. I went straight for the “hard stuff” the moment we got home.

I’m on pain meds for three days. My stitches are supposed to dissolve. Thank Cod, I don’t want another trip in that PTU. Neither Mom, Dad nor I could remember the last time I visited the vet’s office. Since I never get sick, I only see Dr. Neel at our yearly round-up at the house.

They also sent a toothbrush home with Mom with instructions to brush my toofies everyday. That just ain’t going to happen!  Knowing that, Mom bought me a gift today. Don’t I look excited? I think a toy or some nip is a more appropriate gift after being tortured.


Teefs: Water additive.

Water additive to remove plaque and tartar.


I did not make one peep on the way to the vet nor did I make one on my return home. Those of you who know me also know that I am a chatty catty. But I am also a Cat Scout…strong and stoic. I wasn’t going to vocalize my fear and let anyone know I was frightened. I really didn’t start talking again until yesterday. Those mean humans didn’t deserve to hear my sweet and soothing voice.

I am getting some oh so sweet revenge when it comes to teefs. Mom discovered on Saturday she had broken the corner off of a molar. A trip to her dentist today got her a temporary filling and two more appointments to get a crown. Bwa-ha-ha-ha!

For the moment I am forgiving the humans to wish them a happy 43rd anniversary on behalf of my sisfurs and myself.

Belated Happy Anniversary to your humans Mau! Love the photos! Sorry about your teethies… mum wanted to brush mine but I won’t tolerate it but she’s talking about training the puppy to have her teeth cleaned pour soul. I get treats that are supposed to help keep my teeth clean… much better! Hope your mouth isn’t sore anymore xx

Mau, we are so sorry you lost some pf your teefs. We’re purring and praying for a quick and uneventful recovery. If it makes you feel any better, Zoe doesn’t have any teefs. And she STILL loves dry food. 🙂

Happy 43rd anniversary (wow!) to your wonderful Mom and Dad!

Love to you all!

Peeps, really! A nice catnip bouquet would have been much better than a water additive. However, mom is very interested in this water additive and will ask my doctor about it. Big whop!

Your mom and dad have been married a long time. My folks got married in 71 so they are like dinosaurs. I’ll bet telephones hadn’t been invented yet and all us anipals ate table scraps.

I’m so glad your dental went well, Mau, even if you’re down a few teeth. You are a brave boy indeed!

I am very sorry to hear about your mom’s tooth. Is this some sort of karma you’ve set on her, Mau? Well, regardless, happy anniversary to your mom and dad!!!

Don’t worry Mau, the tooth fairy is on the way. I am surprised you don’t need a recheck in 10 days. Sammy is going for his today and he had lost 2 teeth last Monday. I think you Cat Scouts eat too many Smores and they are rotting your teeth.
Happy Anniversary to your Mom and Dad!!!

Mau you are one brave Scout…..but now your mouth is all neatened up just in time for the wedding so maybe the sacrifice of a couple of teefs wasn’t all that bad right? Now when you smile for your wedding portrait – no tartar! Your Mom and Dad are the CUTEST couple – then and now. My Mom and Dad really enjoyed meeting them in purrrson last year. They love all of you AND each other and prove they do every day. Please tell them that my Mom and Dad sent wishes for a HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!

Love, Sammy

My human went to the dentist too! And they didn’t steal any of her teeth or even knock her out. How come some humans get it so easy? She says it is because she flosses. I do let her brush my teeth (not often enough), but I don’t know if I’d let her floss me!
