Oh no, not again!

I've just been reading my mum's blog and I've found out something awful.

I won't keep you in suspense.

She actually wants to brush my teeth. Apparently it's National Pet Dental Health month and so it's got her thinking about how she hasn't been able to achieve her aim. I really thought she'd given up on it.

I think my fangs look great as they are. But then she keeps telling me that it's vital for my health and well-being to clean them. She also says they will rot if I don't and I will get smelly breath.

I wish she'd stop listening to those vets. Spending too much time on-line isn't helping either. She's just getting brainwashed by all this so-called 'advice'.  But come to think of it, and as a very wise cat who likes to do a lot of thinking, I think my mum does have a point.

What do you think? Shall I let her brush my teeth? As a loving caring human, she is a wonderful mother and I know she'd never hurt me. It's just the thought of that brush (it may be tiny to her, but it looks massive to me) in my mouth makes me nervous.

 Do you have your teeth cleaned by your humans?

Ugh! I've had my teeth brushed by my human, and I did not like it one bit! OTOH, getting a dental at the vet's is even less fun.

We have made it clear that the head peep is not to try that tooth brushing thing. We tolerate a lot, but that's just over the line!

No way…not unless the humans want to lose a finger. We have some dry food and treats that are supposed to help keep them clean. We let the vet clean them for us. Good luck if your Mom decides to try it. Purrs and paw-pats, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

Sorry sweetie - I has to agree with your mom. My blog today will tell you why. Brushing is not that big of a deal, so be a good girl and cooperate with mom.

Thanks for the comments, everyone.

I have some treats that are supposed to clean them for us. As for the vet, no way!

We'll see :)

Never. And good luck to Mum if she would like to try it.... We have dry food and treats that are supposed to help keep our teeth clean. If we really needed to have our teeth brushed, Mum would ask the V-E-T and his evil army to do it. Purrs
