She's ancient, and unfortunately there is no longer anything to her. She seems, in general, to be doing well, but her doctor recently indicated that she needed some dental work done. She had given no indication of discomfort, and we hesitated to allow the use of anesthetic at her advanced age.
To our great surprise, they took nine of her teeth, leaving her with only sixteen. The fact that the total number of teeth is odd continues to confuse.
But now that it's over, and she's home, she seems to be so much younger. Certainly, when she yawns, and exposes the gaps, we all laugh together, but when she hisses at other cats, she doesn't seem to understand why they don't take her seriously.
