In the excitement i forgot to post an update. The cats are not dead. In fact both are now very well indeed, a little more tootless than before, but much better. Kryten has stitches in his mouth but they will eventually dissolve and Holly is now eating far more than before, will have to watch that.
So result. A lot poorer than usual this month, but I just think if it were my teeth I’d be bankrupt by now with the amount of work they had.
Moral: Brush your animals teeth, or feed them some kind of vet dental approved food even if its now and again, better than just wet food. It will keep your animal well and pain free and your bank balance in better stead than if you don’t.
