A Lost Fang?

Few days ago, EJ found this fang in one of the cubicles of the kitty condo and wondered who the owner was. It could be anyone as all the kitties are seniors and have weak gums.

So EJ went on a hunt, crawling on the ground peering into their mouths. It was no easy task as you get jumped or sat on, even wrestled.

It belonged to Kenggy. It was weird that Kenggy did not show any signs of refusing to eat. She was and is still as greedy gobbling her food.

Without both front paws and claws, EJ shudder to think if Kenggy were still a stray outdoors. She would never survive now that she lost her final weapon of defense.

Our human is happy that Kenggy and all her roommates are always indoors and never allowed out of the house.

How did that fang get loose? EJ suspects that it is because Kenggy constantly use her nose and mouth to help support her bad landing due to her two pawless and shortened front limbs.

Ouch! My condolences to Kenggy. I would guess that must have hurt! :-(

Poor Kenngy, I think false teeth or implants will have to be invented for cats. Or are they already available??

Poor Kenggy, We're glad the loss of the fangs didn't affect your eating. :)

Aw, poor Kenggy. We hope she continues to do well without that tooth.

Oh Poor Kneggy. We hope that you didn't fall and lose that tooth. And we are so glad that you do live inside and away from danger. Take care and have a great day.

Just read Kenggy's story. She is so fortunate you took her in. It's a shame no one else wanted her. She's obviously adorable.

The Swiss Cats said...

Sorry for that tooth loss : fortunately, Kneggy lives inside ! Sometimes it's better to have no tooth than one hurting tooth...

Poor Kenggy - but the toothies do get looser as one gets older. As long as she is eating well and still purring, all is good! Hugs and whiskeries, YAM-aunty xx

Ginger Jasper said...

Oh dear Kenggy. Abby had one less canine her entire life with us and it never stopped her or slowed her down.

We also hope that fang just fell out and wasn't knocked out! Purrs to EJ, taking Kenggy in, so long ago.

I'm glad Kenggy is still eating, EJ, but I'm not surprised. One of my cats had all her teeth removed (except one) and she kept on eating just as much.
Kenggy certainly wouldn't have survived as long as she has if she didn't have you, an indoor place to live, lots of friends, and lots of love.

Poor Kenggy! Can your vet maybe help with cleaning?

Annie Bear said...

Kenggy, I hope it didn't hurt. Love that last picture. I'm glad too that you're safe indoors. You have lots of love there with EJ. Glad you're eating!

Poor Kenggy - we are sure she will adjust very well as long as her food is made into biteless size pieces.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

My cat Akua gets so excited and carried away about his face marking and petting. I call it fanging and banging. He just loves to rake those fangs along my hand. Ouch.
