|This is Delyte. I lost my top fang too, about two months ago. The dentist said my teeth are in bad shape and they want to go in there and clean some and pull some more. I hardly have any teeth left as it is, and when you are a black cat, your fangs show more prominently. But I haven't noticed any other side effects, no dribbling or anything. Maybe it just takes a while to get used to? How are all your other teeth? Plaque buildup and actual tooth infection can make you drool, too. And I know your people don't need any more problems right now, and getting dental work done on cats is expensive and can be hard on the cat. [Our person had a sweet old doggie who died from the aftereffects of the anesthesia.]
It is very humiliating when you are trying to be the imposing top cat, and you don't have all of your fangs, isn't it? And you with such an important position and your reputation with the ladies to consider. Age is flooring everyone in our household, except maybe for these brat kittens who are only 4 and 2.
Perhaps we should start a group for the defanged and discuss ways of impressing the others without using our fangs and the big snarl? What's an old guy to do?! Giant purrs to you from this old guy!
