(One) Toothless Jaq

Jaq:  Hi Everybody! I'm home but with one less tooth.  What a strange day!  Well, it started last night.  Mama put me in the foster room.  She must have forgotten I was in there and she closed the door.  That was ok for a couple hours but then I got bored.  I told Gus who was on the other side of the door.  He went and woke Mama up.  She wasn't happy since it was 2:00 in the morning but she let me out of the room. Then she went around the house and picked up all the food and water bowls.  Like I said, strange!  At least I got to sleep the rest of the night on top of Mama like I normally do.

This morning I was soooooo thirsty, but Mama had emptied all the water bowls.  She even emptied my fancy fountain!  I tried to go into the shower and have a lick after Mama had her shower, but she wouldn't let me in.
Then she put me in a PINK transporter and took me to vet's office.  Just when I thought my day couldn't get any worse they start poking and prodding me.  I don't remember much after that.  I woke up feeling kind of goofy and not just because I had a bandanna on.  Not long after that Mama came to pick me up.  I was so happy to see her!  I purred and purred and purred.

When we got home, Mama gave me some canned cat food.  I was starving!  Normally, I let Gus choose which bowl he wants but tonight I nosed him out.  Then when I scarfed that down I went and ate his too.
I'm a little achy tonight.  Mama said they pulled one of my teeths.  She said they gave me some pain medicine so I could be feeling much worse.  I'll have that for 2 more days and I get to have canned food for a whole week!

Thank you so much for all your purrs and prayers!  It helped so much!  I'm doing fine.
I didn't get to bring home my teeths.  Do you think the Teeths Fairy will still come?


  1. So glad all went well at the vets. Two of my foster sisters had ALL their teeth pulled so one is not so bad! If there is a tooth fairy for kitties, I'm sure she will still come. Mom never found any of our teeth.

  2. Jaq, we're glad everything went well today, but we're sorry they took one of your teefs. We hope the teefs fairy leaves you lots of treats. :)

  3. Oh yes I think the tooth fairy will come for sure! So glad you are ok, you probably didn't need that tooth anyway! ((((hugs)))

  4. Well, having a tooth pulled is no fun, but a week of stinky goodness sounds pretty good. And you look adorable in that bandanna. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calistsa Jo

  5. I hope the tooth fairy comes. I would love to hug you, you look like our Barney who went to the Bridge in 2013.
