I need to save up $2000 to pay to have most of my cat's teeth extracted because of chronic gingivitis. His body reacts to his own tartar. I feel horrible doing it to him.

That's really sad. And expensive.

Yes. I should see what the lady who runs the shelter pays. She was discussing it at the last open house. A cat without his teeth is just unimaginable. He gets to keep his canines.

One of my cats (the one that later got cancer) had to have one of her teeth extracted because the tip broke off. I felt bad enough about that. I can't imagine removing all of them. Can they fashion some false teeth for him? I'm sure that would be even more expensive.

They say cats can get by with no teeth, but so far it looks like mine can keep all the ones that are visible in the front. It's the worst though. He's so gentle.
