    Good job Tommy! Sounds like you got in touch with your "inner dentist"
    Ask your vet about microchipping. ~~ It could have saved Kuhio's life. And it cost Halo hers. Consider having your cat tested for Polycystic kidney disease ~~ Rest in peace Willy

    We're all so glad this worked out so well for Tommy and you, Sandie!

    I meant," said Ipslore bitterly, "what is there in this world that truly makes living worthwhile?"
    Death thought about it.
    "Cats," he said eventually. "Cats are nice."

    I'm so glad Tommy's okay! Did the vet have any idea what made that tooth fall out?
    Proud to be a crazy cat lady!

    Tommy was born feral; he was 3 to 4 months old when I trapped him. She said that feral cats are genetically prone to gum disease. So he likely had a build up of tartar on the tooth, caught an infection and as he is predisposed it just took off. It is hard to see in the photos, but the top of the tooth - the part which would be under the gumline -- is full of tiny holes, where disease ate through it.

    He will have a dental in 2 to 3 months. We try to keep the mouth clean on the former ferals (for me, that means Ebony, Chaplin, Bobby, Tommy, Tuppence and Mandy -- I trapped all but Ebony, she came from another colony which I didn't work on myself). We are going to wait on his dental to allow this area to heal up completely.
    Thank you Karen, for fixing my siggy!

    Thanks, Tracy. I don't know that he EVER stopped eating, if the tooth was bothering him that much; but he is definitely eating normally at this point, lol.
