I obviously missed the back story on this one... ?
Glad (s)he's ok!!

Our eldest had to have one of her top fangs removed, so now we call her "sweet fang" when she's needing cuddles sometimes!! :D

I mentioned it in passing the other day, he had to be sedated for the exam and tooth cleaning because he is an EVIL EVIL KITTY and gave all the vet staff hell. I was mostly worried about ridiculous things like the gas being wrong or them accidentally doing the wrong stuff to him or something terrible. But he's fine, and in fact is chasing the stinky cat around the house.

Was there the option of NOT being sedated?
Our vet always puts them in lala land for dental work, which makes me aprehensive, but I trust him... So did our old vet... Hmm, I just assumed it was a standard procedure! :D

oh, what i mean is, the vet couldn't even look at his teeth to see if they needed work, nor could he give him shots, or any of the normal non-sedating stuff. he basically tried to feel the kitty's tummy, and the kitty gave him a 10 second warning, and then turned into the vet-shredder. so sedation for the whole thing, exam and the rest.

Yowza! My girls apparently figured out, by group discussion or instinct, that if they play along, they get out faster. :D

Except the once when Onyx took a chunk out of the vet when he was taking too close a look at her mouth, and then eliminated all waste from her body onto the table. But she was already terminally sick, so she was forgiven. :(

Apparently the eliminating all waste thing is endemic to many cats when being prodded by strangers. Most high strung cats I know have done it!

Hero on the other hand is totally chill. He practically rolled over and opened up his mouth for the doc when we initially took him in.

Little Nicholas! I'm glad he's ok!

Nicolas (*grin*) has a totally clean bill of health other than that one pesky toof. You should remember the spelling because I named him after Nicolas Cage... because of some certain movie... ;)

I knew it didn't look right as I was typing it. Then I was going to say Little Nicky, but no one has the same love of Adam Sandler as I do.

Yay Valley Girl!

You're making me feel guilty for not brushing my cats teeth like I should. ;)

I think if I showed you the bill for this fiasco, it could provide another, less self-hating motivation. :)

I'm sure one less tooth will not diminish Nicolas's handsome orange ferocity or macho feline swagger. Happy kitty healing!

I'd hug Nicolas, but I'm pretty sure he'd scratch me in my mind.

With all the kitty icons I had to get mine in too!

Poor Hazmat just got back from the vet today - she had her reproductive parts removed and dad made them take out her front claws!!!! I'm really upset about this, why do vets even still do it? Grrr... But aparently now they keep them for 3 days so at least they're showing people it's serious surgery...

Argh!!! I understand in some very extreme situations that there can be reasons to de-claw a cat. But otherwise I just find it to be cruel. :(

sadmnky and I are convinced that declawing cats makes them far more skittish.

Hooray for a healthy Nicolas, even minus one tooth! Give him a packet as a reward! =)

The "Meow Mix" packets have won my cats over, they prefer them VERY much over the Whiskas. Bonus: they are EVEN STINKIER. I know Hero can't eat that kind of food, but maybe you can sneak some to N. on the sly!

I totally went right out and got him some packets as a reward. :) I think it might have been meow mix, it was one of the other brands, but it had actual little shrimps in it!! It was very exciting. And yes, even stinkier. I give Hero like one or two little mouthfuls and give the rest to Nicolas.

The Meow Mix kind definitely has tiny shrimps in it! First time I put that kind out for the cats I was like "What the hell! Are those ACTUAL shrimps?"

So a mouthful or two doesn't send Hero into conniptions or anything? That's good!
