    Shucks Bobo is 98 in human years. If I carried my age that well at 98 I'd be chuffed. Alas, humans are not as blessed by the ageing gods.

    So today Bobo is 21. We went out for Kahlua and cat milks when she turned 18. She's now legal to drink in the US. I would give her the traditional 21st key but she already owns the house...

    We need more PSB cats posted, the dogs thread is more active.

    So, Bobo has been with me more than half my life and all my adult life. Together we've been part of each other's daily lives, shared good times, survived tough times, endured our own health issues, and everything in between.

    Today we face our biggest challenge - dental surgery for Bobo at 21 years of age. She's not been eating and is showing other signs of her teeth causing her pain but it's not known for sure that it's entirely teeth-related and/or issues associated with ageing. Two dental vets have said there are definitely teeth that are causing her pain and need to be removed. If it is her teeth causing her to not eat, then I can solve that issue for her. Thing is, we won't know for sure until the surgery has been done, and of course, the surgery is not without its risks. However, it is a quality of life issue - she is in pain and may stop eating entirely at some point (she's currently only eating when being hand-fed super soft meats like Porterhouse Steak); so in many ways, my hand has been forced and this has to be done as I will lose her if she doesn't eat.

    I have researched, investigated, talked to and found the best people. I have planned it to the nth degree and have come up with Plan A, B, C and Z, taking into account multiple different scenarios. I have done everything I can to give her the best chance at the best possible outcome. Now it's over to you, Little Miss. Be strong, be brave and be as amazing as you always are. I love you so much.

    Please spare a thought for my Little Miss today and please send her good vibes.

    So all has gone as well as we could have hoped. She's making a good recovery and has eaten some food. She is amazing ❤

    Her eyes are as big as saucers as she's tripped out on pain relief.




    She's still not out of the woods as the first 24 hours are critical but she's done so well and the vets are happy with how it went.

    30 sounds about right. They definitely have a minimum of 18 as another kitty yesterday had 18 out! As said by the vet, cats will eat better with no teeth compared to having bad teeth and a sore mouth.

    She's been completely amazing. Hasn't eaten any more food but I'm not surprised! (I had a filling replaced a few weeks ago and that was bad enough - I had trouble eating dinner due to the local anaesthetic, let alone having teeth removed but not understanding WTF has just happened, and wondering why my mouth feels different). She's been recovering well and people have commented on just how well she's doing. She had a sleep over at an emergency place so she could be watched and be given fluids. She's now back at daycare in the clinic. Will be checked over by the vet mid-morning and I reckon she'll be back home today 😊 Nervous, over-protective mum is still nervous and over-protective though!

    So..., overjoyed doesn't even begin to describe it. She's been eating and drinking all day. Just got her home an hour ago and she's drunk some water, had some food and been sitting on my lap. Order has been restored as I am currently experiencing feline paralysis:


    The most risky time is largely over but I won't be at ease for a few more days, and long-term for about 3 to 4 months as there can be some anaesthetic impacts that are not immediately apparent (rare, but it can happen); but it has gone as well as it could, and even better than I expected.

    Cant wait 'til I hear the first purr ❤

    Perth Cat Hospital. Was recommended them by a dental vet who no longer performs surgery. Had a consult with another dental vet to confirm diagnosis and also to suss out alternate dental surgeons. I chose the Cat Hospital and Martine as the surgeon. Also enlisted the services of a specialist anaesthetist (common in higher risk cases) so the dental surgeon could solely focus on her job and the anaesthetist could monitor and maintain the vitals (the anaesthetic was a bigger risk than the act of surgery). There were no shortcuts or cost-cutting so a very expensive exercise when factoring in pre-surgery tests as well, but I wouldn't have/couldn't have done it any other way. I never actually asked the cost because it wasn't relevant/a factor in my decision-making. You can't put a price on quality of life.
