Oh Noes!

Kitties, Woofies, the dental is really going to happen. My Tech friend from the v-e-t office came by last night to trim my claws.  I heard mom and she talking about the DENTAL to come on March 17th.  Tiffany said I had to starve to the worst degree possible as I can't eat after midnight.  That means mommy will take up my food and water at 1030 because I am not allowed to drink either, so I will be starved AND dehydrated to black and white dust.  And no breakfast kitties!  I'll whither on the vine (if I had one).

I'll be stuffed into my PTU and dumped off like a pot roast by 8 am or so and I won't see mommy all DAY!  Her's calling the carpet cleaners as if I am gone cause I can't escape through the door if I'm not here.

One thing though I will ask of you brave kitties and woofies who have gone through this.  If I have not eaten nor drunk anything, I hope when I come home I won't have diarrhea.  Tiffany told mommy probably not, but you never know so I was wondering if I am gong to have an unhappy heiney once I get home.  Can you help with information?  And purr for me that day too?

Mom and I are skeert!

Katie, you will be just fine. A lot of us have had to not eat or drink and were just fine when we got home. Hungry but that is to be expected. You might not eat right away that afternoon since your mouth will probably be a little sore. And you probably shouldn't get a lot to eat all at once. You will be just fine.

PS Katie, be sure to check your mail ... something from us to you, for tomorrow's special day ...

Katie, I am sending my Mom and Dad to your town post haste this weekend to snatch you away from that terribleness before it can happen. Sounds to me like your Mommy cooked the Dental up as a way to get her rugs cleaned. Hah!

Katie Isabella said...

SIMBA! I think you are RIGHT!!!

The Whiskeratti said...

Oh you poor angel! How could this happen to such a nice kitteh?? Our Mom did want you to know that we've never had an upset tummy because of this. Also, because of our ages, we were allowed to have water all night long, just not food.

Austin Towers said...

Miss Katie, I am in agreement with Simba! I think this terrible foul deed is perpetrated by your momma on a pretext!! There is nothing worse than a pretext!! It means she is trying to dupe you! But you are very clever to have sussed her out. What you should do is call her bluff and pretend to go in the PTU, but instead dart through the tunnel and visit with me! I'll send one of the minis over to take your place. Trust me, they will never know the difference!

PS Mum to Mom. Austin squeaked a lot when he went for his dental surgery because he said he was starving!! *rolls eyes* When Katie gets home after the anaesthetic just give her a little soft food to start with. Don't let her gobble. She might not be up to eating for a while, but obviously plenty of water :) xx

Flynn said...

Oh no, poor Katie! I will purr for you to not wither away from starvation. When I have my blood tests I always get starved before. I am allowed water though.

Oh dear Katie, not the S word. Not even the D word. We'll purr for you and your mom sweetie. We are reading the comments here and they say you will be fine.

Oh, no! Your Mommie must be worried too. You must be brave, dear Katie. The ordeal will be over soon and your Mommie will totally spoil you afterwards.
Kisses and purrs from Mickey Mouser and Rufus the Red and Maggie

It'll be okay, Katie. Both boys have had two dentals, Annie had one, and even Chum had one years ago. None ever got diarrhea, none ever threw up their food when they got home and started eating.

Lots of purrs to you (and your mom!) from all of us!

Summer at sparklecat.com said...

Both Binga and Boodie have had dentals - Binga twice and Boodie a few times more than that (her teeth aren't that great, although they improved after my human stopped giving her and Binga any dry food whatsoever). They both were fine when they came home. In fact, the last time, even though Binga was loopy, she was begging for dinner! (She didn't get it until the time the vet said it would be okay.) I'm sending purrs your way anyhow to make sure you get through it all right.

Brian said...

I agree, you will do fine pretty Katie. I agree with what Marg said, just don't eat too much when you get home. We all love you sweet girl!

William said...

You'll just sleep right through it, Katie. You'll probably dream of fishies or something! And the plus? No one will hiss at you when you get home (like some cats here have done).

Tamago said...

Oh Katie san, I'm sorry it's really happening. But you will be OK...you go take a nap and when you wake up, your teeth are shiny! Niko had dental several times and this is what I always told him.
He never had diarrhea but he sure was hungry. He ate a lot after the dental and I could see his tummy expand with all the food! I'm always very scared when he has to do dental..your mom must be really scared, too. I pray it'll go smoothly xoxo

The Island Cats said...

Katie, I went through this not long ago. It was HORRIBLE not being able to eat or drink anything all night, but I did not have diarrhea afterwards. I'm sure you'll be fine...and will have clean teef too! ~Wally

BeadedTail said...

I went through this too Katie but I got all my teefs stolen! I'm sure you'll just be all polished up but get to keep your teefs! I didn't have any heiny issues when I got home either. I did starvamacate though!

Purrs,
Isabela

Poor Katie! We are sorry you have to get a dental, but we know it is for your health. Please know we love you, and that we purr and pray for you and Mommy to not be skeered.

Andrea and the Celestial Kitties said...

First of all, we have to say that Leo and I LOVE that picture of you! So pretty, so regal!
I wouldn't think you'd get litter box issues for not having eaten, I don't think I've ever heard of anyone having that happen, but I'm curious if anyone comments that they have. We'll purr for you! And Leo says he'll come and stand guard over you if you come home groggy!

Oh dear, Katie! That is no way to spend St. Patrick's Day!

Purrs in support,
The Chans

Oh Dear Katie......the starving/dehydration part will be forgotten as soon as you get back home because your Mom will make sure you have EVERYTHING you want and need! You won't even REMEMBER the trip to the vet - you'll be back on your throne and getting hugs and sympathy (from your Mom AND from all of us). Really and truly.

Love, Sammy

Hannah and Lucy said...

Katie we hope you won't be too sore after your dental work. When you start to recover at home we're sure your Mom will wait on you paw and paw until you feel better.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

SailorEdgar said...

I hope you do fine,sweet Katie, and I'm sure your fate will be better than that of a pot roast!

Seeking Serenity said...

awww, this is so hard on your mommy... Myst had this done and her mommy doesnt even remember it! (a bit worried about that!) so i guess it wasnt that big a deal

Mariodacat said...

Sweetheart, you are going to be just fine. The only kitty M had a problem with was the very first kitty, and that was about 49 years ago. They have come a long way with the dental procedure since then. I had all my toothies pulled, and never had litter box issues either. I don't think it will be a problem at all.

Oh, KI, you will be the cutest pot roast ever dropped off! I never had dental work, but when I had surgery once, I could only lick an ice cube when I got home. Then in a few hours, Mom gave me a little dinner. I was fine. You will be fun, too. Mom and I already said prayers for you and your mom not to be too scared.

Love and licks,
Cupcake

Caren Gittleman said...

You will be fine!!! I never had one but our Angel Bobo used to have one a year from about age 10 (or maybe younger) on.......and Dakota had one last year and was fine!! You will be fine! Tell Mom to try and calm down so that she doesn't transfer her fears on to YOU!! xoxo catchatwithcarenandcody

Jo-Anne's Ramblings said...

Oh no dental work that is terrible, I hate dental work, I do like clean teeth and being able to chew my food but dental work no don't like that

pilch92 15andmeowing said...

We will be praying and purring for you sweet Katie. And if you get any teeth removed, we will send you a tooth fairy gift, but we hope you don't need any teeth removed.

Laila and Minchie said...

I sure can relate to what you are going through, Katie. I'm having my teeth cleaned on March 15th!
