ouchy tooth

It's that time of year again, when all the cats head next door to the vet for their annual inspection and vaccines. Willow, Nahum, Theo and Rose got to partake of the adventure. Managing four cats in the exam room is a bit of a challenge, but the bulk discount makes it worth it - they charge one multi-cat exam fee for as many cats as we show up with.

Everyone checked out ok, even Theo's thyroid blood levels were good. Only one issue was found, Willow has an ouchy tooth. She has a cavity that needs attention. How could this be?

I'm guessing it's because she's so sweet and everyone knows sugar causes cavities.

Poor Willow, soon she'll be missing a tooth. I inquired about getting her a crown or implant, but the vet didn't seem keen on that idea. I'm thinking my Willow will still be perfect, even with one less tooth.

She's scheduled to go in Monday morning for the extraction. 
Purrs for my sweet little precious girl.


  1. We are all sending sweet Willow our best purrs and prayers. We know not having that ouchie will be much better!

  2. oooh, look at her! isn't she the cutest? she will be purrrfect even without a teeth.
    Happy Easter for all of you!

  3. Keeping Willow in our purrs. Remember there are many kitties who do well with NO teeth. So we are sure Miss Willow will be fine and dandy when this is all over.

  4. Four at once? Four?! I couldn't even stand it with just the two boys, they made such a ruckus. LOL.

    Lots of purrs for Willow -- Nicki had 8 teeth out way back in November 2009, and Derry had 9 extractions in June 2010. Even Annie Bananie had 3 out back in February 2010. All did just fine!

    Happy Easter!

  5. Me too think that Willow will look purrfect with one less toothie :)

  6. You should look into Oxyfresh for their water. My cats are 9 and 8 and have never lost a tooth. :). Their teeth are probably healthier than mine! LOL!

  7. Hi there, awww, the cats are so cute. I'm just stopping by to say how delightful your blog is. Thanks so much for sharing. I have recently found your blog and am now following you, and will visit often. Please stop by my blog and perhaps you would like to follow me also. Have a wonderful day and Happy Easter. Hugs, Chris

  8. We'll be sending lots of purrs for pretty Willow on Monday.

    Have a happy Easter.

  9. Willow will feel lots better without that "sick" tooth.....we hope everything goes well for her on Monday.....HAPPY EASTER TO ALL!

    Hugs, Sammy

  10. Sweetheart, I will be purring for you but I now all will be well. SO glad everyone is doing so well. xox

  11. We know Willow will feel much better without that tooth. Cats are prone to FORLs. They can cause a lot of pain, which cats are good at hiding :(

  12. aww.. poor Willow, but she will feel better once it is taken care of.. Purrs
