Cat Lady No. 352...Proper Oral Hygiene

Bathrooms can be a chamber of horrors for some cats (all that running water!), while others find it a wonderland of amusement. Take Gunther and Iris, for example... a brother and sister pair of fearless felines who love to supervise toothbrush time with Cat Lady Camilla.

According to Camilla's daughter Danielle, "Gunther is very lazy dazy and is a little goofy sometimes. Iris loves to sit on Camilla's back while she is bent over the sink brushing her teeth. She also likes to drink the water from the sink when Camilla leaves it running for her."

Good dental care is important for cats too. Here are some tips from Cat World's article on Cat Dental Care:

How to prevent dental problems:
  • Regular visits to your vet, which will include an oral examination.
  • Daily care of your cat's teeth at home.
  • Regularly check your cat's mouth for any signs of dental problems. If you notice any of the symptoms such as drooling, bad breath or red or bleeding gums, seek veterinary attention immediately.
  • Avoid feeding an exclusive diet of canned food.
