Hey guys. My selfie for today features my pearly whites.

black cat showing teeth

Over the past couple of months, the mom noticed that my breath was kinda stinky. I suggested that some good breath mints could take care of that problem but the mom wasn’t buying it. Then when I was at the vet for a check-up last month, the vet lady said I had some tartar and gingivitis building up on my teeth and probably could use a cleaning. Y’know, I’m almost 14 now and never have had my teeth cleaned. So last week I got dragged off to the vet for what they call a “dental.” And apparently my teeth were a little worse than originally thought. The vet had to remove 3 of my molars because of tooth resorption…kinda like a human having a cavity but with cats, they don’t fill cavities, they just remove the tooth. If those teeth hadn’t been removed, they could get very painful and cause me more problems. So out they came. I’m  doing okay despite losing those 3 teeths.

Check out my pearly whites! Pretty impressive, aren’t they?

  2. Oh Ernie, we are so glad you got your teeth all fixed up. They are looking mighty good. Have a super Sunday.

  3. I sure am glad your dental is over and you are doing fine once again Ernie!

  4. I’m so glad you came through it successfully. Toby had resorptive lesions… Painful and expensive to deal with.

    • They’re a lot more common in cats than most people know. That’s why it’s important to have our teeth checked regularly before problems arise.

  5. Ernie, look marvelous! If the dental makes you healthier, then it wasn’t so bad?

  6. Please let us know meaning mama and me about the anesthetic that you probably had to have to get those pearly whites so poorly and white. Thank you Ernie!

  7. Sorry they took three of your teefs, Ernie, but hoo boy, that’s one pearly white smile you have now, pal!

  8. Dude, you’re lucky! I had to have everything but my front teeths taken out. And I’m afraid those are going to have to come out this year. I’m gonna hafta gum all my foods.

  9. Glad you have a healthier mouth Ernie and my goodness but those teeth look white and shiny now! A PURRRFECT smile!

    Hugs, Teddy

  10. RAWR! Looking good Ernie. Happy Sunday.

  11. Wowzers, Ernie, we cannot believe you made it all those years without a teeth cleaning. Losing three teeth isn’t great, but those remaining are dazzling! We cannot blame you for showing them off in your selfie. Thanks for hopping over to see us.

  12. Ernie!
    What a magnificent set of canines you have! Sorry about the losing of 3 teeth, but like you said, its better to get rid of them now rather than get sick because of them.

  13. Ernie, I’m jealous of those white teeth. Glad you got your teeth taken care of. It’s important to both kitties and humans. Prevents a lot of future health issues, plus makes you look pretty handsome with those pearly whites.

  14. You have now a bright and dazzling smile, Ernie ! Purrs

  15. Those teefs are the best II have seen. Better than mine when I got my dental!

  16. Oh I just love your photo looking gorgeous as always.x

  17. Wow! Those are some pearly whites alright! Sorry you had to get the ‘dental’, but you’ll feel so much better in the long run sweet Ernie.

  18. Ernie those pearly white daggers made me run for my Shades.
    Thank goodness you managed well with the tooth removal.
    Hugs cecilia

  19. Your teeth are beautiful, Ernie. It’s too bad you had to have some teeth pulled, but resorption spots can be very painful (I had one) so I’m sure your mouth feels much better without those teeth.

  20. I’m glad you are okay now, Ernie. Chris lost eight teeth before age ten so you are doing better than him.

  21. You look great. Please have your mom email me (pilch92@aol.com) your new address so the Tooth Fairy can send you a gift. XO

  22. Gee….I need my sunglasses, Ernie, your teethies brighten up my smile…eh…yours too 😀 Pawkisses for a Relaxed Sunday to all of you 🙂 <3

  23. Erns! OMG (Oh My Floofy Paws!) sorry the V-E-T took your 3 tooths away. I bet they beamed them up to the Alien mother ship as their lil’ trophies. EEK!

    I sure hope the tooths fairy left some treats under your pillow. You still have a mouthful of fab pearlies, pal. And those fangs of yours are pretty terrific! Luvs.
