White Teeth: Give Me Smile Kitties!

"Gosh, here it comes...."

It has been a year since I started brushing my cats’ teeth.  Yep, I do it every night.  Both cats don’t like it, but they learned to tolerate it in order to please me (I wish).  In fact, I bribe them.  They know that I give them three to five bits of crunchy-bad-for-you treats before the brushing.

As you might have already known, I feed them raw meat mix as their regular food twice a day.  According to my animal communicator, Tora missed the crunchies so much that all he talked to her about food was “give me crunchies” (the kibbles I fed for his first four years of his life).  I gave in a little after that conversation.  Oh well, I give myself a bag of potato chips as a treat, so why not to my beloved cats?  It is only fair to Tora.

I use a human-baby tooth brush for the cats’ teeth.  The bristles are softer than the toothbrush made for cats.  Instead of toothpaste, I use a few drops of much diluted colloidal silver which has antibacterial quality in it.  I used to add Peelu natural dental fibers (powder) to the colloidal silver, but it was too much to deal with for me and the cats.

"Mom! Gentle, please!!"

The great news is that Tora didn’t need to have any teeth extractions last year at all.  He had eight teeth already taken out in recent years, and I didn’t want him to go through it again if it can be avoided.  The vet told me that Tora seems to have genetically weak teeth and gums.  He had a regular teeth cleaning only at the vet, and Mimi didn’t even need the cleaning!  I saved a lot of money as a result of brushing.

I plan to celebrate this memorable, one year anniversary tonight…by taking one day off from the routine – NOT brushing their teeth, and not feeling guilty about it!!  I’m sure Tora and Mimi don’t mind giving me a night off from it, and they may even be smiling behind my back…

"Yikes, brother! I gotta run!!"
