This is sad news. :( Our cat, Cammy (the fluffy one) was apparently having problems closing her mouth when Dj arrived home this afternoon. He knew something wasn't right so he, with two kids in tow, took her down the street to the vet. Vet looks in C's mouth to discover she has some severe issues with her teeth. One tooth is pulled. Vet says she will probably need all of her teeth pulled b/c she has horrible, diseased teeth. They are running some blood tests on her overnight (they kept her) to see if anything else is going on, but I am just sick about it. Why? She is one of our first pets. She is so sweet and I am worried about her. She is probably freaking out wondering what's going on. She is all alone. I know she is just a pet, but she's been a part of our family for the last six years. The problem with all of this is, it's very expensive to get all of her teeth pulled. Very expensive. Vet says it's normal to have teeth pulled like this and she'll probably be a much happier cat and won't be in pain anymore. She has had such horrible breath since she was born, so she's probably lived with this for years. Poor thing! :( Vet says that the teeth pulling will help her stop sneezing and hacking so much. Vet says she'll be fine and it won't affect her quality of life. Vet says she'll probably have to move to soft food though. We'll know more tomorrow after they get some test results back. But the whole thing just sucks. To those of you who read this blog: would you pay $ to fix your pet? Why or why not?
