Ride or Die

A couple of weeks ago, my humans noticed that my brother Jack’s breath was stinkier than normal (my female human said it smelled like the breath of an elderly cat). Then the other night, my female human noticed that Jack was drooling in his sleep. The final straw was when my male human found some bloody toilet paper that Jack had been gnawing on. The humans examined Jack’s mouth and noticed that his top gums were bloody. They decided that a trip to Uncle Dr. Kraft was in order. Before leaving, my male human found two small teeth in his bathroom (where the bloody toilet paper had been spotted).

My humans debated whether taking me with Jack or not. My female human pointed out that we went everywhere together and it might make Jack feel better. My male human said it would be easier to leave me behind. They went back and forth and finally agreed to leave me behind. I could tell Jack was trying to be brave but was a little bit scared to have to go somewhere by himself. So when my humans brought the cage out, I jumped in and promptly laid down. I settled the debate: I was going with Jack to the v-e-t!

Since Jack and I were raised by a foster mom that is a vet tech at the clinic, we went to the clinic quite a bit when we were babies (to help socialize us). We weren’t a bit frightened to be back together, and everyone was so happy to see how much we’ve grown. Good news for Jack’s mouth: turns out the teeth my male human found were baby teeth. Uncle Dr. Kraft found two other baby teeth that were really loose and close to falling out, so he took Jack in back and removed those. I was a very good girl and napped in my cage while they were gone. Uncle Dr. Kraft said the bad breath, drooling, and bloody gums were most likely caused by the erupting teeth and should clear up soon. He also said Jack will be a very big boy someday!
