    Eve - Happy and Healthy!!

    Eve had her annual wellness session this morning and as always, was such a good girl and melted the heart of a new vet at the hospital. She is a happy, healthy little girl (not to mention gorgeous) and took her shot like a good little soldier. A tip the vet gave me for keeping her teeth in good condition is NOT to use a cat tooth brush but instead to buy a Winnie the Pooh tooth brush designed for infants (not much larger than a Qtip) and clean both sides of her gums (with water) every day for 10 seconds. Apparently it works really well for maintenance. If your cat's teeth/gums are already bad, it won't fix the problem however, once the kitty's teeth have been cleaned, this procedure helps to maintain the gums' health. I guess Evie will soon have her own (baby) toofbrush.

    Another bit of information I learned today is if a female cat has had a litter, she is more vulnerable to breast cancer. The vet checked her thoroughly in the breast area and advised that if I ever felt any unusual lumps, to have her checked immediately. I love how thorough he was with her exam and how well he communicates on preventative care. It was a good visit.

    Evie is now happily tucked into her blankie having a much deserved nap.

    Hi Cuz! I'm so sorry you were subjected to the indignity of the V E T. So glad it's all OK, though, but whassis toofbrush?

    Anyway, it looks like you're having a comfy nap and you look great, so I won't disturb you any further. SHHH!

    Yay, a happy and healthy Eve - that's good news! I bought a packet of childrens tootbrushes for Fister and started brushing his gums years ago, I really think it helped. He soon got used to it and expected me to do it every day. So it's great advice the vet gave you. Give Eve some kisses from me.

    Hello, beautiful Eve! I'm glad you are healthy! Thank you for the tip about breast cancer -- Cassie did have kittens before I adopted her, so I'll make sure the vet knows that at our next visit. What a peaceful place you have for your nap!
    Yikes! I've been Boo'd ... right off of the stage!
    Aaahh, I have been defrosted! Thank you, Bonny and Asiel!
    Brrrr, I've been Frosted! Thank you, Asiel and Pomtzu!

    Dearest Eve, you are just gorgeous! And you look so comfy tucked in under your blankie!

    It's so great, if you had to be subjected to the indignity of an EXAM, that you have such a good report from your V E T and you are happy and healthy! We are going to pass the tips he gave your Meowmie along to our Meowmie.

    Eve, I'm so glad to hear that your vet visit went well and that you're a very healthy girl. I had heard about using baby toothbrushes but not about brushing gums for about 10 seconds with water every day. I did know that even if a female cat or dog goes into heat, that his will increase their chances of getting breast cancer.

    Thank you for all your sweet thoughts. Despite getting her shot today, which is supposed to make her sleepy, Eve is tearing around like a kitten, looking for treats and generally voicing her many opinions to whomever will listen. That's my girl.

    KAK massaging their gums with the baby brush helps to manage gingivitis -just like us humans. My vet's wife is a dental specialist and she insists on doing this with their own cats daily and it works!! I am willing to try this as I have had gum surgery (not fun!) and since I have been brushing/massaging my gums regularly with an electric toothbrush, the problem is totally under control.

    Hi there Eve,
    The news about your vet check is great to hear! Not only are you one gorgeous kitty girl, you completely aced your check up. I don't want to disturb you while you're sleeping so peacefully, but when you wake up remind your Meowmie to give you lots of lovies from me? Have nice kitty dreams
