Poor kitty

One half of my cats teeth went home in the cat, the other (slightly more than) half went home in this bottle.

Bottle contents 2x Feline Carnassial, 4x Feline Pre-Molar
Cat contents 1x Feline Pre-Molar(?), 4x Feline Incisor

(?) the doctor said there was one tooth in the back left, I'm not actually sure if it was a molar, pre-molar, or carnassial.

She also came home with a pain patch taped to her leg.

Awww, poor kitty!

Phoneix has some very small number of teeth left (three?). He still insists on eating dry food - swallows it whole. I've saved his teeth in a little altoids box. I had no idea how much pain he must have been in; it took him a week or two to recover, but he's now much more playful and loving. Poor thing. I try not to feel too guilty for not taking him sooner.

Are you going to soak the teeth in hydrogen peroxide to clean them up?

Our other cat is allergic to his teeth, so we had to have various drugs and teeth removals for him. In the process we learned that house cats don't need their teeth. They can eat the stuff we give them by squishing it agains the roof of their mouth.

Would hydrogen peroxide make them last longer?

No, not at all. It just helps to get the bits of flesh & blood off the teeth, so that they're nice and clean to store.

Allergic to teeth! How sad! Sometimes i joke that Phoenix is allergic to his own fur (since he sometimes itches himself so much - no, no fleas or mange or anything) - but he's not really.
