|Hi there! I too am a man-cat recently off the street! One of the vets at our practice says that both my canine teeth are cracked, one very badly and that they have to come out, but mom isn't quite sure because I certainly have no problems with eating, even rmb's (we're raw fed mostly), and don't seem to be in any pain. But, mom has never had a cat whose teeth have had to come out, so she's not really sure about this.
So, I'm going to join you in asking, when is it really necessary to have a canine tooth out? Cats don't really use them for eating, so does it matter? Mom says I have to have surgery for an ear thing anyway, that's when the vets would remove the tooth/teeth.
Thanks, and sorry Doppel-Newman that I'm only re-asking your question and not answering it!!
