A toothless grin

Well, not toothless, but unfortunately my boy had to have a couple of teeth removed. So Chet’s a little lighter on the right side of his mouth.

Yesterday really wasn’t a good day for him. Instead of getting fed in the morning, he gets put into a carrier and taken to the vet. I abandon him there, they knock him out, and he wakes up with a lot of pain in his mouth and wicked hunger. Poor little guy.

Unfortunately, when they were cleaning his teeth it became apparent that two of his back teeth had really bad cavities, so he had to have them removed. Ugh.

He spent the rest of the day a little out of it, and for some reason his sister kept hissing at him. I’m not sure what that’s all about. I wonder if she smells all of the other animals on him, since he was at the vet’s all day. Yeah, that’s probably it.

For my part, my cold is gone and has been replaced by a sore throat. Lovely.

And that’s all I have to say about that.



  1. Be careful with that throat, I hear strep is going around! And didn’t I tell you that cold would last two weeks? Fun, huh?

    Hope little Chet is feeling better soon. 🙂

  2. Ummm… I hate to state the obvious, but if you’ve got a sore throat, your cold is not gone!

  3. Poor Chet – that really sucks.

    Hmmm – take care of that throat…(perhaps a visit to the doc if it persists…and lots of honey in your tea)

  4. Yeah, I went to the doctor this morning, and she confirmed that it’s not strep…just a continuation of the virus that caused my cold in the first place. Lovely. So I just gotta wait it out and hope that my immune system kills it before it kills me.
