I wanted to share this photo, because it's funny... my cat's vet told me I have to brush and rinse his teeth everyday. Here is Xander getting his teeth brushed:

aside from that, I have to control his dry food intake, give him half-a-pill of crushed L-lysine for his eye and trim his claws. :eek:

but the pay off is that he lets me dress him up which is very funny.

i love/hate brushing my kitty's teeth. we have a little finger-glove with bristles on the end, so it's just rubbing a finger around his mouth instead of tackling him with a toothbrush.

I used to do that but I couldn't reach his back teeth where he needs brushing the most with it so this tooth brush works out well.

how often do you brush?

perhaps, you should at least try feline mouth rinse? xander got himself gingivitis, so I knew I had no other choice but to take care of them.

yeah, it is definitely a struggle to brush everything with him. I don't think we brush his teeth nearly enough, probably once a month. i am now a little ashamed, i should brush his teeth tonight.

we dress him up, too!

yeah, brush it more often so he/she gets used to it.

my cat doesn't mind this oral rinse: http://www.virbacvet.com/cet/product/cet_oral_hygiene_rinse/

and LOVES this toothpaste (poultry flavor):

Kinda ballsy showing Maleev a picture of a wet pussy, dont'tcha think?

I swear to god my cat was gay before he got fixed. He's the prissiest thing you'll ever meet. He MUST have at least one handful of freshly scooped fod in his bowl when HE wants it, regardless if the bowl is filled. He also MUST have the door opened for him to leave, despite a window always being open.

Then he goes and drinks from the toilet.

Tell me about it! We have a black cat that meows a lot when she doesn't get her way. And if she's not meowing, she's getting herself into trouble. Case in point: As I type this, she just jumped onto the bathroom door. Now she's meowing because she doesn't know how to get down :evil:

Probably. She's actually my sister's cat, and I assume she takes care of her. I haven't seen much of her since I started college.

i grew up with barn cats and they are totally the opposite.

they might leave the occasional mouse on the doorstep but that is about it.

a few were affectionate towards us but that was the exception rather than the rule. one was pretty awesome but she made it very clear that she did not need us one damn bit.

Pretty...where's that from? I feel like I should know but I have no clue.

And yes...I've got a Persian/Siamese mix and she seems to have inherited the worst of both her parents' stereotypes. On the one hand, she's super stuck-up and will refuse to come near me if I call her. On the other, she will climb onto my lap and refuse to leave whenever I have an inclination to move.

Although she brushes her own teeth :) I keep a brush for her in the bathroom and she just goes in and rubs her teeth against it 3-4 times a day. According to the vet, while it isn't as effective as actual brushing, it's keeping the gingivitis as bay so I'm happy.

She actually likes to climb into my shorts while they are down around my ankles and will just watch me intently.

It's kind of disturbing.

So does one of my cats. As soon as the trousers drop, he climbs in like he's in a basket or something. I'd have to go, "Get out, Puppet!!!" Both of my cats also like to watch me shower, squeezing themselves at the edge of the curtain and popping their heads in.

Too cute.

My cat will snub her food if it's the same variety she's had a couple days in a row, but otherwise she's pretty low maintenance. So long as she gets regular pets and the occasional rodent to eviscerate slowly after a prolonged hunt, she's good.

Very charming cat piece, Mike.

About 6 or 7 years ago I was messing around with watercolor and color pencil with the idea of drawing a childrens book about a fox. There was as much I didn't like as liked about it, and other work came up, so I shelved it:

Yeah, we have to give Peanut L-lysine, too. And hyperthyroid medication and shots of insulin twice daily. But we dress him up, too, so it's a good trade-off. :)

My old cat Nermal did that, too. I thought it was weird as hell. He also used to climb up on my chest whenever I was sitting on the couch, and bury his face into my neck.

The new stray does that, too. The kneeding claws hurt like a bitch.
