Poor Stella

Mrs. Nice was gone this week from Monday through Wednesday. Monday I started not eating well. Mr. Nice thought that I may be missing Mrs. Nice. Thursday they noticed that I wanted to eat but apparently couldn’t. Both of them were getting really worried. Mrs. Nice pureed my food and I licked my bowl clean. It really felt great to have a full stomach.

Today though they decided to take me to the vet after work. I knew it would be a trip to the vet when Mr. Nice brought the carrier upstairs from the basement. When we got there, the vet took one look into my mouth and saw that one of my teeth was broken. He also said that the rest of my teeth were not in the best shape and I needed a cleaning once I was well again.

Mr. Nice was holding me during the visit. The vet opened my mouth and scared me half to death when he pulled my broken tooth. I really tried to scratch and bite him, but I couldn’t get him. Then he gave me a shot with something he called antibiotics. He even gave more medication to Mr. and Mrs. Nice to give me at home for the coming week.

I was in my carrier so fast when it was time to get out of the vet’s office, you would not believe it.

Since I am home I drank a little of my milk that Mr. Nice picked up at the store for me, but I still can’t eat. My mouth still hurts. The vet said I should feel better tomorrow. Let’s hope so, because right now I only want to sleep on the couch.

Stella is sick

Autor: Mrs Nice

My name is Stella and my home is in the south of Germany. In 2007 I was rescued from the animal shelter by a really nice couple. Mr. & Mrs. Nice are perfect. They have been taking care of me and giving me lots of love. As you can imagine I wouldn't trade them for anything. In my blog I try to share tidbits of my life with them. Have fun and please keep coming back!

  1. Ah poor Stella, Lisa who also is a tortie had exactly the same problem but she had to have several teeth pulled out and now has 3 left. She is 17. Didn’t you get any anaestesia ? Lisa yes, without it’s too cruel that must hurt a lot !!

  2. Oh poor Stella,didn´t you get an anaestesia ??? How horrible!!!
    I think cats can feel like humans when they have teeth problems and I think like Gattina it is too cruel without that.
    We wish you all the best and no more hurting teeth.

  3. Hi,

    just want to tell you that the tooth was broken and the doctor pulled out the rest in a second. Thats why Stella didnt got any anaestesia. She started to eat again this afternoon.
