Toothless Tuesday

Today I have to go in to the V-E-T.  My teeth are not so good, or so they say.  I have to go in for dental work.  They already stole some blood from me and they say it looks pretty good for a 14 year old.  I could have told them that.  They didn't really have to take it.  Anyway...they are not so sure I will have many if any teeth left once they are done with me.  Mom say this is ok, I won't starve and I can still eat if I don't have many teeth.   Mom is just worried because I have to go "under"...whatever that means.   Does that mean I'm going to visit Fui and Suey and Ronny?  Can I visit MoMo too? 

Is that true?  All I really care is that my Cecilia still loves me.

Pee Ess:  I weighed in at 17.4 pounds!

Awww, I hope all goes well and that you aren't frightened. Vet hospitals can be intimidating places, and we know you will be happy to get home.

Goodness, you are a big boy. We will be thinking of you at the v-e-t. Our mom said she had a cat with no teeth once that did indeed eat just fine, including kibble.

Shelly said...

I had no idea that you were 14! I also didn't know that you were such a big boy. Snowball will be 16 in September. She started losing teeth last year. I hope everything goes great at the V-E-T!

Sadly, no, going under does not mean you get to go anywhere near where Fuey, Suey, Ronny or even Momo live. What it means is that we're all keeping our paws crossed that everything goes well with your vet appointment tomorrow! If they test you before they put you under, you should be okay.

We are sending big purrs to you today, Madison!

Our Mom had a cat when she was young that lost all his teeth too. She said he still ate all his food like nothing had changed! (even dry food!)

Madison, we hope everything goes well for you today and that they leave you with a few teefs. If you do see Fuey, Suey and Lishy, tell them we said hi!!

Lots of purrs for you, Madison! No worries, you're mom is right, you won't starve even if you lose most of your teeth. Nicki had 8 out last November (and he was just 3), Derry just had 9 out at the beginning of June (not quite 3 years old). In fact, Derry lost all his lower chewing teeth--molars and pre-molars--and once his gums healed (within a couple of weeks), he was back to eating his small bit of daily kibble without problem. (Mostly canned, but he likes his crunchies, so he and Nicki get a small bit.)

So paws crossed all goes well and that you don't need as many extractions as anticipated.

Huffle Mawson said...

My paws are crossed for you Madison.

p.s. when you are down under, come visit me too!

We hope the dental work is painless, Madison.

17 point something pounds?! That's Tama-Chan, Yuu-Chan and Bibi-Chan combines!!!!

Busby and Raymond said...

Madison, we hope your dental goes smoothly. You look to be in great shape to us. Sending our purrs...

Sammy and Andy said...

Sweet Madison, we are definitely sending out mega purrs for you today. xxxxxxxxxxx

Mishkat said...

We're sending you many many purrs, Madison! And we're sending purrs to your mom also - our mom gets nervous when we have to "go under" too. (It doesn't bother us at all!)

Amy and The House of Cats said...

We are sending you lots of purrs Madison! Kirzon is about your age and has to have tooth stuff done a lot too - he has bad teeth too, so we can sympathize! We know it will be ok and no matter what we know your mom will take good care of you - even if it means only squishy food for you (which actually can be quite tasty!) So even with only a few teeth you will do just fine!

JC said...

I hope your 'nap' goes ok and that you aren't sore for too long.

AttieCattie said...

Junior and Orion said...

We will be purring for you Madison!!!!!! Adn don't worry about losing teeth...you have great humans that will make sure you still have plenty of good foods!

Junior and Orion said...

Oh and, Meowm just LOVES you Madison. She wants to hold you and give you lots of scritches!!!!!

Eric and Flynn said...

We are purring for your vet visit to go well.
Mum said she had a tortie who lived to 23 and never had a tooth left in her mouth. She said she would gum a lamb bone to death and get far more meat off it than any of the younger cats.

Ayla and Iza, said...

Well, we know ya can go "under" fer a short sleep cuz we done it bein spayed. We felt just fine after.

But we hope ya get ta keep yer toofs. We mean, we LOVE ours...

Fin said...

Healing purrs to you! My crackpot vet says I need to get my teeth cleaned too! What do they know?

Au and Target said...

We are purring for you, and we hope that you will get loads of special treats when you come home.

Nico, Simon and JayJay said...

Madison, we are so sorry you have to go to the v-e-t & get your toofs taken - if they take all of them, how can you put the bitey on anyone?? Our Mom has heard that kitties can do just fine without them, though!

We hope it doesn't come to that, but if it does, you know your Mom will take extra special care of you after it's done.

We'll be purring that everything goes ok & that you're up and around in no time!!

~Nico, Simon & JayJay :)

Keiko said...

Aww Madison, we read about your surgery on today's post - glad you came through it okay! We're going to purr for you softly so that you won't get a headache.
Wish you could come fly 'down under' and visit us in Australia!

What a sweet boy you are, Madison -- just look at that face! I'm sorry to hear about going to the V-E-T and the tooth problems, but you'll be okay no matter what. The V-E-T is there to help you, not hurt you. And it's great that you're healthy otherwise. I know Mom doesn't have to worry.

Wow, you're quite the big boy, Madison! I never would have guessed.

Actually, I know everything went well already, so I just hope you get back to normal as soon as possible.
