Tooth Cleanings

MAX

You might remember my blog about the V.E.T. giving Mom some special junk I need to have rubbed on my teeth to take away tartar. I don't like this at all and avoid it if I can.

Mom thinks I should have clean teeth though, and she wants me to do this. There's a wrestling move called a headlock that she tried a few times to make me hold still. But she tried to do it alone, with very little success on getting any of the junk on my teeth. Ha, ha, ha. Then I overheard her say she needs Dad to help hold me.

A few times a week she'd say "We need to do Maxie's teeth". Then Dad would say "Where is he?" Of course, they didn't know where I was!!

I've found several new hiding places and so far have managed to escape this torture. But last night, they got me as I was passing through the kitchen. Here I am before the procedure. I wouldn't allow a picture afterwards since my mouth was covered with chicken flavored goo.

Now I have to be extra watchful so I they don't get me again.

hiding behing the giant people litter box is always a good spot.

Poor thing! I'm the only one of us who will allow Mom to touch my teeth, but only touch. I don't think I'd like that fakely flavored toothpaste!

After they rub that crap on you, breathe into their faces. There is no reason why the pain should not be shared!

Ugh! This sounds like the ordeal we go through when it's time for "manicures" (as my mom so lovingly puts it). She'll make her voice sound so soothing and wiggle her fingers like she is ready to give me scratches...then SNATCH! I'm captured in her arms and she is trimming my nails!

I'd resist her, but what if she is really just wanting to give me scratches?! I can't take the chance of missing out on that!

Ah...the dilemma!

It takes two people to do my teeth. Come to think of it, they haven't done it in a while. I think I won!

Hey, what about treats that claim to reduce tartar? That's what Mom gives me and my vet hasn't said nothing about my teeth. Maybe they're afraid to even try it wif the Attack Tabby.

I know it's yucky and I don't like manicures either, but your beans are trying to keep you healthy. A tiger cub at our zoo DIED because her toof was infected. That makes beans sad.

LOL...Mommy tried to get my teeth cleaned...she even tried that headlock thing. I didnt like it, and I told her so, with those teeth! She wasnt at all happy, but she wouldnt let me go till she was done. I didnt speak to her for a few days

I am happy that you found me, it is always nice to have lots of furr-iends

The vet told mom to bring me back for teeth cleaning-is she nuts? I think what she saw on my tooth was part of a treat that mom was using to keep me happy before the vet starting poking at me with her needles.
