Mommy was playing our "Trap Door Kitty" game where she huffs and puffs and it makes me roll around and I always yawn like I am bored when really I am in heaven. Only this time,when I had my mouth wide open like a trap door, she noticed my left fang tooth was missing. She blinked a few times as I stared at her. "WHA???" She snatched me up and put me in pill popping position and opened my mouth. "HEY....pill time is at night...the sun is still up and it is only lunchtime!" So, I fought her. Pork chopped her. Moaned in agony. And finally, I relinquished my stubborness and let her open my mouth...barely.
The tooth is gone. Oh cats, that made my Mom hop up and run to the phone to call Dr. Joyce. Only when she was dialing did she recall that today was Wednesday (days kinda run together for teachers in the summertime..teehee) and the office had already closed for the day. Was this an emergency??? Well, I am eating like I don't miss the chomper, I am purring and prancing in my usual diva style. The socket where the tooth used to be is pink, not red and doesn't appear to hurt what so ever.
A call will be placed first thing tomorrow....and of course, her bags are packed for a 6 day girls weekend with her bestie, my Aunt Donna. We hope that the vet says not to sweat it....does any other cat need dentures out there??? Have you lost a tooth and did you have any problems??

None of the kitties in our family have lost a tooth (that mom knows of) but Sophie has had some pulled by the v-e-t. Wonder when this happened? My mom isn't sure she would notice a missing tooth in one of us kitties!
Of course, it only makes sense that your Momma would find out about it right before a trip- nice planning, Princess!
Sending purrs that your mouth and toothies are all good!
I have a kitty friend named Stalin who lost one of his fangs about this time last year. Are you friends with him? http://www.catster.com/cats/661411
I don't know anything about teeth, Chloe. I sure hope the dentist says it's NBD. Way to go in the timing! MOL
Oops, that last post was from me. Cindy T. is my Mommy.
Hmm... I hope it's nothing serious. It sounds like the gum looks healthy. We're furriends with Stalin and sure were sad when he lost a fang, 'cause Stalin had the most impressive fangs I've effur seen!
