In Tooth and Claw
Well, I got back and had to take Toulouse to the Cat Hospital again. Evidently there were problems with his teeth. I just took him to the vet for a full checkup last summer and they said there were no problems. Then, his new vet tells me his teeth look really bad and showed me the red inflamed gums. She said this wasn't a problem that could have come up since last summer. So, they had to put Toulouse under and pull three of his teeth including one of his canines. When I picked him up, I just lost it. I felt so bad for him. The difficulty of moving and adjusting. Then spraining his elbow. Now he has lost three teeth. What will happen next?! Luckily, he seems to be okay. But it breaks my heart when I see the big gaps in his mouth.
