Tell All Tuesday: Your Pet’s Oral Health Is Important #ChewyInfluencer

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. We’re so behind it ain’t even funny. But, we’re tryin’ to get caught up on everythin’ and make plans fur the future. You know, I’s luvs makin’ plans. 

 

Dezi and Raena look out window from cat tree

 

 

 

          Like you luv hoggin’ the mommy heat at night Raena? Cuz you did it again last night. Me nearly froze while you were all splayed out next to mommy.   

 

Raenalays pretty on the cat tree

 

 

 

Hmmmpht  What mommy heat sissy? Didn’t you hear her chatterin’? I’s mean, she may not have any teethies, but she can still chatter. Besides, it’s not all mine’s fault. Mommy was so cold she kept scoopin’ me closer and closer and stealin’ all mine’s fur heat. I’s didn’t mind tho’, I’s luvs snugglin’ with mommy.   

 

Dezi lays in chair

 

 

 

          Yeah Raena, me did see that. She even tried to steal me’s fur heat. But her legs were shakin’ so bad me vibrated right off. Me thinks it’s time fur the cozy ‘lectric blanky.   

 

Oooooh Yeah, I’s luvs the cozy ‘lectric blanky sissy. But it can’t take the place of a good cuddle with mommy. 

 

          You’re such a kiss up Raena. 

 

Raena lays in lap with mouth openSmell mine’s breath mommy. Does it smell nice?

 

 

 

 

Well, least mine’s breath is smellin’ better. Which reminds me, we need to tell everypawdy ‘bout this great supplement we’ve been usin’ called VetriScience Perio Support fur cats and dogs. As most of ya’ may ‘member, I’s had to get mine’s teethies cleaned recently when I’s got mine’s eyes fixed. Mommy says she luvs me no matter what, but that mine’s breath had lost that sweet kitten smell. And, at only 2 1/2 years old she was a bit disappointed that I’s already had plaque build up and needed a cleanin’ in the furst place. So, when we saw that Chewy was offurin’ a product to help with our oral health, we pounced on it.

          Yeah Raena, oral health is very ‘purrtant. And after all that mommy’s been thru with her own teethies the last couple of years and havin’ sis Lexi who lost most of her teethies by the time she was 5, mommy’s very serious ‘bout takin’ care of ours.

Perio Support pet supplement

 

 

 

Mommy always hates products/supplements that get sprinkled over our food. Mostly cuz we’re really picky. So, when she opened the jar of Perio Support, she was a little nervous ‘bout whether we’d eat it or not. You’ll notice the description says it’s “aromatic”, and it is that fur sure. Mind you, it doesn’t stink, but it fur sure has a smell. And ifin a human can smell it, you know us kitties and woofies can smell it. One usually assumes a smell also means it has a flavor. But, mommy took the chance and sprinkled a bit over our noms and then added water as usual. What happened next was a pleasant surpurrise…we both ate our noms like nuffin’ had changed. Mommy isn’t brave enuff to taste it and we’re not meowin’ ifin it has a taste, but either way, ifin it makes it passed us picky girls, it’ll most likely make it passed your finicky eater. I’s gives it 3 paws up.

          Me too Raena. The VetriScience Perio Support is a 4.2 ounce bottle fur $15.00. We’ve not been usin’ it long enuff to see real results, but ifin it works as described, it’ll be worth the money. Mommy likes to split supplements t’ween our meals so they’ll all look and taste the same. Less chance of us turnin’ our noses up and not gettin’ what we need. As Raena meowed, we both ate our noms as ifin nuffin’ had changed, so mommy gives it a thumb up as well. She’s reservin’ the other thumb till she sees whether or not it actually works.

Chatting Cats: Where’s My Bite

MeOW  Raena, What are you doin’?

 

 Raena eats treats on the Liberty cat tree

 

 

          Uh, Who? Me? Uh, I’s just havin’ a little turkey tom lurkey. You know, mommy had another dentist ‘pointment yesfurday to get somethin’ called a soft liner in her new teethies. Seems she’s had trouble keepin’ ‘em in her mouth, and this soft liner stuff’s s’posed to help with that.

 

Dezi lays atop the liberty cat tree

 

 

Yeah, me knows ‘bout the ‘pointment Raena, but where’d the turkey tom lurkey come from? Me knows you didn’t get it at the dentist office.

          You’re right sissy. But wouldn’t that be fun. Mommy says when she was little, the dentists always gave her a sucker after her ‘pointments. She’d get a long lecture ’bout eatin’ candy and how that was the reason she was losin’ a tooth, and then he’d go and give her a choice of suckers. Seems kind’a crazy, but I’s guess it assures him of future business. MOL  Anyways, right next door to the dentist office is an Arby’s. After talkin’ with a furiend who’s goin’ thru the exact same thing as mommy, and findin’ out he was able to eat a steak sammich and a pizza, mommy decided to give that sammich thing a try. Arby’s has these sammiches called sliders, that only cost a dollar ‘tween the hours of 2 and 5, so mommy said we just had to make a stop. But, we had to wait till we got back home to have any cuz mommy wanted to make sure we both got some.

 

Well then, where’s me’s bite? Did you already eat it up?

 

 Raena sits on small perch at door

 

 

          Who? Meeeee? Nah, that wasn’t me sissy. Maybe we have a kitty ghost or somethin’.

 

 Dezi lays in the house on the Liberty cat tree

 

 

Me thinks you did. But, that’s okay, me saw what ya’ll brought home the other day, and me purrfurs that to Arby’s turkey tom lurkey any day. Mommy had bought one of those tv dinners with turkey tom lurkey bites and was able to chew them up. She got purretty x’cited ‘bout that and then saw that turkey breasts were on sale at the grocery store fur $4.99. ‘Course, mommy headed fur the grocery store where she discovered they weren’t actually $4.99, but $4.99 a pound. So, mommy bought another bag of taters instead.

 

 Raena scratches on the butterfly cat scratcher

 

 

          Yep sissy, I’s know mommy has to be getting’ tired of taters, but there’s no way she was payin’ $5.00 a pound fur anythin’. But then, one of our angels sent mommy some green papers and told her to go get one of those breasts. So, we went back to the store and mommy found a different turkey tom lurkey fur less green papers. I’s tried to tell her to get the biggest one they had, but she said the one she picked out would be purrlenty fur the three of us. But, when we got home, mommy put him in the freezer. She said we had to wait till after she got that soft liner fur her teethies, and a weekend, when ‘lectric purrices were cheaper befur she’d be cookin’ him up. 

 

Ya’ know what that means don’t ya’ Raena? We’re havin’ turkey tom lurkey this weekend. Me can’t wait. 

 

          Me either. In the meantime, I’s’ll be happy to finish mommy’s sammich. Seems it’s still too early fur mommy to be bitin’ anythin’. Anyways, what did you do while mommy and me were gone yesfurday? 

 

Me took a nice long peaceful nap. Till the sky started grumblin’ that is. Me’s so tired of all these storms. Me was so glad to see ya’ll come walkin’ thru the door. Me was worried what with ya’ll bein’ out in the storms and all. 

 

          Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaw fanky fank you sissy. We worried ‘bout you bein’ home alone too.

Me’s glad to hear you were at least thinkin’ ‘bout me Raena. But, me does enjoy me’s alone time…well, sometimes me does. That sammich does smell good. Let’s go ask mommy fur a few more bites and try to visit some of our furiends befur the storms roll in again.

Put That Finger In My Mouth and See What Happens

Hey, are ya’ll out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. I’s sure wish I’s could see ya’ll. Do you wanna see me? What’s that mommy? Oh, okay, we’ll post fotos later so everypawdy will be able to see me. Well, okay then. Let me tell ya’ll ‘bout our crazy week. And furiends…it’s not over yet. While you all be readin’ this very posty, mommy will be chattin’ it up with the DHS nurse ‘bout qualifying to get some help around here. You know mommys doctor would like it ifin mommy quit drivin’. It’s cuz of those passin’ out spells she has. But a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do, mommy says. And till we can find somepawdy who’s willin’ to actually work fur a livin’, then…Well and now mommys gotta prove she still needs help. Anyways, I’s was gonna tell ya’ ‘bout our crazy week so far.

 Raena lays in the stroller

As ya’ know, I’s went with mommy to the doctor on Monday. And it was basically a good trip. Mommys’ back ain’t broke and she’s healin’ up slow and steady. Then came Wednesday and the dreaded dentist ‘pointment. Furst let me just tell ya’, mines harness still fit. And by still fit, I’s mean barely. It did pop open a time or two on Monday, but mommy made it work and said we’d look into getting me a new one. I’s hope she gets me a new Butterfly Cat Jacket. I’d be stylin’ then. Anyways, mommy decided she had the patience to deal with mines trainin’, so I’s got to go with mommy to the dentist.

But let me tell ya’, our house became grand central station ‘bout 10 minutes befur we needed to be walkin’ out the door. Furst the mail lady showed up with a package fur mommy. She had signed up fur some free “fight the wrinkles of old age” samples months ago and they arrived as we were getting all our things together to walk out the door. As soon as mommy laid the envelope down, the doorbell rang. Some neighbor we’ve never met was standin’ at the door askin’ ifin we had any boxes she could have. Somepawdy told her we got a chewy delivery and Christmas prezzies and might pawrt with a box or 2. Guess she don’t mind cat hair, cuz everypawdy knows any box that comes in our house is well luvved. Mommy was able to put the neighbor off and we ran out the door. Okay, maybe we didn’t run, but we were off as fast as mommy can hobble.

 Dezi lays on the arm of the chair

In the car, car started, and…OMC mommy furgot the camera. Mommy hobbled quickly back to the house while me meowed loudly after her. Don’t leave me, I’s meowed. Come back mommy, I’s chortled. Finally, mommy reappeared at the door and hobbled herself back to the car and we were off. And hey, we were only 15 minutes late. Mommy got out her old fashioned cell fone and tried to call and let them know we were runnin’ late. Hmmmpht  They were closed fur lunch. Mommys ‘pointment was at 1 o’clock, right after lunch. So mommy put the fossil of a cell back in her bag and just drove…purrobably a little too fast. But, we made it and only 5 minutes past our ‘pointment time. Aspen Dental was the name of the place. Must have been all that wind blowin’ us all over the place. Least that’s what mommy says. We caught a tail wind to be exact. We settled into the seating area so mommy could fill out the new patient paperwork. When she turned it in, she reaffirmed there would be no charges fur this appointment.

 

 

A few minutes later we were called to the back. Yeah, everypawdy was ohhin’ and ahhin’ over me, but so far, I’s was the purrfect Service Cat. I’s chilled in the stroller keepin’ both eyes on mommy and mines nose in the air. I’s smelled lots of strange things, but no purroblems with mommy. They stuck mommys head in this funny machine that went round and round and took the funniest fotos. Oooooh (shudders) Mommys foto sure looked ugly. Then they moved us to another room and the lady kept stickin’ her fingers and some strange thing in mommys’ mouth. I’s don’t know why mommy didn’t bite that girl. I’s gotta tell ya’, stick your hands in mines mouth like that and watch out. Rrrrrrrroar  Well, many more of those ugly fotos later, and we were off to yet another room.

 Raena bathes while sitting on the perch

The girl with the fingers left us alone and mommy finally reached into her bag to pull out the camera and take a purretty foto of me. “You’ve got to be kidding me!!!”, mommy exclaimed. The batteries were dead. She’d just charged ‘em the day befur, but they just don’t hold a charge like they used too. It didn’t really matter, cuz another girly came walkin’ in the room befur mommy could even get the camera put away. She started shovin’ her fingers in mommys mouth along with something that made mommy nearly jump outta the chair. Then she started ramblin’ on ‘bout cleanings, infection and periodontal disease. With tears streamin’ down her cheeks, and these weren’t the happy ones fur sure; she told girly that she’d never been told she had periodontal disease befur. To which girly replied, “Well that’s why your teeth are hurting. It’s really your gums.” To which mommy snarked, “No honey, it’s the gaping holes and exposed roots that’s makin’ my teeth hurt.” And girly looked at mommy kinda shocked and said, “Well yeah, that too.” And she purromptly left the room.

 

 

I’s chirped and mewed softly fur mommy to feel better and she cooed and told me how purroud of me she was. And then a little short man in a white coat came whooshin’ in and looked at those ugly fotos of mommy. Then he turned ‘round and innerduced himself to mommy. Dr. Luong he said and then he started puttin’ his fingers in mommys’ mouth. I’s gotta tell ya’, I’s so purroud of mommy, she didn’t bite any of those peeps. I’s couldn’t have done it. He poked and pushed mommys teethies and said things to the first girly who couldn’t keep her fingers to herself and took such bad fotos of mommy. Finally, everypawdy kept their hands and fingers to themselves and Dr. Luong talked to mommy. I’s gonna let her tell ya’ what he said.

 Raena bathes while sitting on the perch

Thanks baby. In order to get rid of the pain and infection I currently have, 8 teeth need to be removed on the first appointment (cost varies between $152.00 and $256.00 per tooth). Several of those are broken off so much they require surgery because there’s nothing to grab onto to pull. Of those teeth, 4 are the bottom front teeth. Basically, all I would have left on the bottom of my mouth is a crowned wisdom tooth and my canines. (The crowned wisdom tooth was done over 20 years ago, but is still holding well.) Also included at this appointment would be an immediate partial denture, for a total cost of $3598.00. Then there is 1 root canal and 3 additional teeth with smaller holes that need to be filled ASAP to avoid them becoming infected like the others (cost between $193.00 and $220.00 per tooth). These as well as the few remaining teeth have roots that are deeply implanted in the bone and so he refuses to entertain the idea of full dentures at this time. Also at that appointment would be placement of the permanent partial denture at a total cost of $1662.00. And lastly, they insist I need a cleaning that is done one side of the mouth at a time for a total of 3 appointments and a cost of $1535.00. I’ve never had my teeth cleaned, but of course these numbers sound outrageous to me, and I can’t find anywhere online where these numbers are valid for teeth cleaning. Unfortunately, the rest of the numbers do seem par for the course.

 

 

Fanky fanks mommy, that was too much fur me to ‘member. And I’s tryin’ to furget anyways. All those fingers in the mouth and all. Hmmmpht Just let ‘em put in ‘em mines mouth and see what happens. MOL  Mommy says she nearly passed out when they told her the cost, but I’s didn’t sense it. Mommy says it’s okay, I’s wouldn’t have. Sounds kinda strange to me, but okay. Mommy says anytime you want more money than she makes in a year, she’s gonna pass out. MOL  We did start a fundraiser fur mommy. You can see it here. Ifin you can spare anythin’ we fur sure would purreciate it, but unnerstand ifin ya’ don’t. Mommy really hates to ask since it’s not fur us, but she doesn’t know what else to do. There are fees associated with fundraisers that lessen your donation. But we know that some peeps only want to give thru a fundraiser. Fur all others, if you go to paypal and choose send money to friends or family, there are no fees charged and we will receive the entire donation. Our paypal email is: lexi.dezi@yahoo.com ( lexi (dot) dezi (at) yahoo (dot) com ) Fanky fank you. 

 Dezi lays on the arm of the chair

 

I’s gonna wrap it up now cuz this is a really long posty and fanky fanks to dead camera batteries ya’ don’t even have cool new dentist office fotos to look at. You’ll have to tune in to Service Cat Monday fur the rest of the story. And we’ve got a great question to answer too. We’re joinin’ the weekly Pet Parade.

 

Till the next time……………………………………Be Blest!!!
