We had discovered that Oscar had lost a fang. Yep, how that just disappears is beyond me. We took hime for a vet visit only to discover he has to have 3 other teeth removed. he did great. Took him a few days, some pain meds and some really good soft food and he was up and about. we somewhat felt guilty, because we had attributed Oscars behavior towards everyone as sadness and depression at the lost of Felix. We are sure that did have alot to do with his feelings but how long had he been suffering this awful toothache? Once he recovered, he started talking, loudly in the middle of the night again. Cant tell you how happy we were to be awakened by Oscar and his howl. Made us feel that Oscar was feeling like himself again.
On this same visit, we decided to make another drastic change in our lives. We met this little 4 week old kitten. THe vet was referring to him as the redbox kitty. An employee of the Sweetbay Grocery store found him. He was one of 4 kittens tossed from a car. 2 didnt make it, the other lost a front leg but has been adopted and we decided to take this little guy home and give him a chance. 4 weeks old and only 1.5 lbs. soooooo tiny
