Spider goes to the Vets!


Spider hates being in the cat carrier. He even got himself a bloody claw once because he tried to fight his way out. He simply goes ballistic in there. So instead, when we drive to the vets, I put him on a little harness and secure him with a pet belt that clips into the seatbelt socket on the backseat of the car. Except for meowing a few times, he is very calm, just lies down and enjoys the ride. 

This is us walking down the alley to the car.

Our Vets Rock!


Back in June Lugosi had to have both his upper canine fangs removed. They were badly diseased and rotten and, sadly, had to come out.

I meant to post this earlier but never got round to it until now, but I just wanted to say a big THANKS to my wonderful vets Marga, Vanessa and Maria, for giving me such a big discount (two tooth extractions for the price of one!) and for taking great care of my old baby boy.

Vampire Kitty without Fangs!


Lugosi sadly had to have both his top fangs removed because they were badly rotten and the gums around them severely inflamed, and for a long time had probably been causing him a lot of pain… 

The good news is that as soon as he was home after the op he immediately started eating his wet food and demolished four(!) small plates of it! It didn´t seem to bother him much, and it appears that he was probably in more pain before than he is now that the teeth are gone. 

I am so relieved that his recovery is going so well. I guess we worry far too much about our furbabies, but cats never cease to surprise me with the amazing healing power they possess and the way they cope with pain… 

Pic of Lugosi´s top fangs after removal – the root is bigger than the tooth itself!!!

Lugosi at home after the operation – looking a bit worse for wear, but doing alright.
