my cats have (cavi)ties!

So as you may or may not be aware, the loml and I have four cats whom we have any number of names for. Since the fuzzy spawns of evil have become "ours", I consolidated their vet care to one provider. This means that once a year, we take a musical (yowling, mewling) field trip, all together. Everyone at the vet's office keeps saying "Oh, you brought the whole gang, eh?" This always makes me wonder if they think I should split the trip into two separate visits with half the cats, but since no one every talks about it, I just don't know.

Anywho, our vet is awesome. This is the same vet who noticed that one of our cat's odd behavioral grooming issue was actually fleas (just one cat out of four! these were the sneakiest fleas ever!), who confirmed that 'little girl' had consumed half a pound of christmas ribbon which subsequently had to be surgically removed, and consistently does not recommend extra medical procedures for the sake of money.

sigh. which is why when she noticed that two of our cats (siblings) had identically rotten teeth (2 each), I knew it was for real and now we have to go back to the vet for surgery. wahh.. Is this what happens when your cats get old? How do cats deal with this in the wild? or do they just die?

oh well. Anyone who lives near us or northerly, who wants a vet recommendation? Ours is great. Technically, its an office of several (three I think) vets, but they're very good.
