Thankful Thursday Blog Hop: I Am Sure Glad the Dental Is Done

thankful thursday blog hop brian 10042018Welcome to our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop,the first one for October. We are sure happy to see you today and it’s time for us to post about things we are thankful for, as we do every Thursday. We sure do look forward to reading about all of the things you are thankful for too and we sure love it when we see new blogger pals hopping in to join us!

Now for my thankful part I’m going to turn it over to the Dad so he can update you.  Take it away Dad.

Hello everyone, Dad Terry here.  We always post Thankful Thursday on Wednesday evening so those in a different time zones can see it early on.  I’ll try to keep the days straight.  Brian went for his dental today (Wednesday).

Brian is not home, he has to spend tonight (Wednesday) in the hospital and should be able to come home tomorrow (Thursday).  Our poor boy has really bad tooth resporption and had to  have half of his teeth extracted, yes, 15 of his 30 teeth.  We feel so bad for him, he had to be in so much pain, but, as cats do, he hid it well and only complained a wee bit recently.

So today we’re thankful that his dental is over and our sweet boy will be dealing with a lot less pain soon.  That’s a great big thankful for sure. We are also thankful that he has a good Dentist and is at an AAHA facility that can manage his post-surgical care throughout the night.  Please send dear Brian your purrs, prayers and POTP for easy healing.

What are you thankful for today?  Tell us in the comments and then join us for our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.

Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

    Brian, I remember when Kali had her teeth removed. Bad scene! She was left with 4 teeth. She felt so much better after she got over the surgery. She ate most foods like dry crumbles…small ones. She did prefer pate to chunks though. Kali had the same problem as you have. My thoughts are with you Brian my friend.


  2. Foley Monster, Pocket and River

    Pocket went through the same procedure. She was fine the next day. Maybe a little too active. Sending prayers

  3. meowmeowmans

    We’re glad Brian is going to be okay. Our Ava has to have a dental soon, too. It’s no fun, but surely it is better than the pain they feel before the dental. Sending lots of purrs and prayers.

  4. Summer

    Poor Brian! I’m glad the vet took care of all that awful stuff going on in his mouth. You are right, we kitties are really good at hiding things! I’m sure he’ll be feeling MUCH better as soon as he recovers.

  5. Mickeys Musings

    We are thankful that Brian has you looking after him,even if it means taking him to the Vet.
    We are sure he will come home feeling much better though 🙂
    He will be a happy kitty again.
    Purrs Georgia,Julie and JJ

  6. Zoolatry

    Dear Brian ~ this is a note from Zoey, who knows all about “toofs” and shares your pain. Hoping you feel better real real soon (no crunchies just yet please), and don’t drink really c-c-cold water! We know your family is going to take very good care of you and guess what: the Toof Fairy is sure to leave lots of great things under your pillow. After all, she’s getting quite a collection from you when she comes to visit! We from Zoolatry love you and send you a gentle hug (a hug around the middle, not the head).

  7. RO P

    Oh my goodness, the pain! Thank goodness it’s been resolved and Brian will be back home soon for more perfect pictures. You’re such a great dad, Terry, and the cat world needs more people like you. Hppy Thursday and Hugs…RO

  8. Margaret Elmendorf

    Oh Brian, we are so so sorry you had a rough time with your teeth. But you will feel better soon. There are three of us here that have all their teeth taken out and we even eat dry food. Not at first but down the road some. We sure will keep our paws crossed that you are feeling much better and soon. Bet you will be so glad to get home.

  9. The B Team

    OH NO Brian dude, we’re sending mew oodles of healing purrs buddy! Get well soon and we hope by the time mew read this mew’re all back at home and snuggled up with your family.

    You get well soon, Brian. Prayers for a speedy recovery. I just know you’ll be enjoying a pain free mouth and soon. You have great peeps that make sure you’re as healthy as you can be and I’m thankful for that.

    Have a purrfect Thankful Thursday. My best to your peeps. ♥

  11. Ellen Pilch

    Poor Brian! Tell him the tooth fairy will send him something extra special after all he went through. XO

  12. Pam

    I for one am really thankful for the fact the Brian is doing well and life will be pain free for him.

  13. The OP Pack

    We hope the Tooth Fairy is well-stocked with lots of love and goodies for Brian when he is up to it. He has all the POTP we can muster for a good recovery. We knew he will be getting the best of care from Mom and Dad and lots of good company from his kitty family. We have had to postpone Lightning’s dental due to his surgery tomorrow.

    Feel better, pal.

  14. Eastside Cats

    Oh noes, Brian! Something tells me that you are going to be a lot happier after you heal from this experience, big guy! Bad teefs make for grouchy cats…and humans! Sending you some hugs and purrs so you feel better a bit quicker!

  15. All Things Collie

    Oh your poor kitty! I’m glad you were able to get those teeth extracted, I’m sure it had to be pretty expensive. We had two pulled on one of our senior collies and I remember that bill!

  16. Spitty the Kitty

    It’ll take a few days, but he is going to feel SO MUCH BETTER! Spitty had 12 extracted a couple years ago and I couldn’t believe how much happier he was after. Poor boy, he will feel better soon, and I know he’s going to get LOTS of TLC from his People! XOXOXO

  17. Kyna Bear

    Sending sweet Brian lots and lots of purrs, love, and POTP. I’m glad that he’ll be in less pain soon. The tooth fairy is going to leave him a lot of treats (15 teeth worth!). I’m so glad that he’s in good paws for his after-surgery care.

  18. Lisa

    Oh my, I hope Brian feels better soon. Sounds like some serious cuddling and spoiling is in his future. And, maybe new toy or some soft kitty treats….or both! 🙂

  19. Cathy Keisha

    OMC! That is awful news. How are you going to bite your peeps, Brian? TW thinks I may be hiding some dental issues. There’s no particular reason. Now that Dr. D. is in a clinic about 20 miles from us, it’s such a production to get there and I’m told I don’t make it easier.

  20. Catscue Catmom

    Poor baby! Now the owey’s will be gone and it will get much better. You’ll probably bounce back faster than your Dad will – it’s hard on a pet parent to see their little ones in pain – be extra nice to him for a while. Purrrs

  22. Teddy

    Oh Brian I’m so sorry you have such a sore mouth from so many teeth being pulled……I know this resorption thing is really bad but you are such a brave boy to not have let on you were hurting until you just HAD to. Now you should be feeling better even if it hurts from the surgery. We are sending you a ton of POTP…..and hugs for being so brave.

    Love, Teddy

  23. World Of Animals, Inc.

    We are so happy that Brian will be ok. We are sending many purrs to him to come home and that he will not be in pain. Thanks for sharing the update with us. We are thankful that everything went well. Have a wonderful day

  24. Maggie

    Ohhh that’s a lot of teeth. We hope Brian heals fast and is much more comfortable soon!

  25. Create With Joy

    Wow, Brian, I sure hope your are home and healing and feeling better soon.
    That picture is worth more than 1000 words.
    My heart goes out to you and your entire household!

  26. Jan K

    Oh dear, poor Brian! No wonder he looked mad in that photo we saw on FB today. (just kidding). We think that photo said he was now home, and we hope he recovers quickly and easily. ♥

  27. Savannah's Paw Tracks

    Brian my man, I am so very very disturbed to learn you lost so many of your toofies!! Hand tough my pal and your Mom and Dad will make sure you have the very best of the best of anything you need

  28. Kitties Blue

    Wow, Brian, we are feeling so badly for you and praying extra hard that you are feeling so much better after getting those teeth out. You should be home now, which is great. Hope you aren’t in one of those awful cones. Love and hugs. XOCK, angel Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo, Cooper Murphy and Sawyer 💖🙏🏻

  29. Marv

    Oh! My! COD!!! Brian! My furrend, I really feel for you! What a horrible rotten, no good, furry bad experience! Ninja and I are sending you loads of purrayers, that you heal up A-OK and quickly.
    Feel better soon dude!
    Marv, Ninja (and Mom)

  30. Raven

    Oh my goodness, that was not your typical “dental”. I’m glad Brian is doing well. Hopefully he’ll have an easy recovery.

  31. Nicki and Derry

    Oh, Brian, you poor sweetie. We hope you’re starting to feel a bit better now, 2 days after the surgery. Nicki and Derry both have lost many teeth, but not 15 at once! (Derry is down to having only 14, he lost 5 more in June with his most recent dental.) But 15 is an awful lot to lose in one go and would hurt so much. Purrs and purrayers and lots of healing universal Light!

    Kim and the boys

  32. katie Isabella

    Brian, because of things here I missed that you had the dental and had to stay even longer. I am so sorry, sweet boy. I send lovins and more lovins straight from mom and me to you. Love you.

  33. Mary McNeil

    Hang in there, Brian ! We hope you start feeling better soon – and with those bad teeth gone you should feel a LOT better.

  34. Deziz World

    We are so sorry to hear you’ve been in pain Brian. But we’re glad you’ll be feelin’ better soon. We’re sendin’ hugs and purrayers fur all and extras fur you.

    Luv ya’

    Dezi and Raena

  35. the critters in the cottage

    Brian we are sending you all our love and support. Our Angel Tulip had that problem and needed teeth removed. We know it isn’t any fun but you will feel much better very soon! xx

    Oh, you poor darling. Toothies can hurt so badly and give lots of other health issues, so we’re glad that they were took out for you. Here come some Extra Healing Pawkisses to feel better soon💗💗💗

  38. John Bellen

    Fifteen is a lot of teeth to lose but, as you write, Brian will feel much better soon: a whole new cat, I’ll bet. My foster-cat, Parker, was more active and playful after his teeth were removed. Even so, there is worry and anxiety; surgery is surgery, and it never seems minor or major – it’s just an ordeal – when someone we love is involved.

  39. Glogirly

    Oh, Brian…we just heard about your dental procedure. I’m so sorry to hear you needed so many teeth removed. That’s not an easy procedure, for sure. Katie went through something similar, but not as many extractions earlier this year. We hope you’re recovering well and getting used to how new your mouth must feel. We also hope your kitty pals are doing ok with the strange smells. We know it can take a while before you are comfortable grooming again.

    Sending you our biggest purrs for a speedy recovery!
