Part of my "job" as a "household engineer" is to take care of our 5 cats and 9 parrots. Usually the hard ones are the parrots, that is if you don't mind cleaning up cat puke (you get use to it). It also means I take them to the vet.
So today I took Max the Cat (not to be confused with Max the bird) to the vet for his rabies shots. I'm thinking, man I gotta come back here in 2 more months with him for his regular vaccines so I ask the Doc to fix him up all at one time. So the vet gives him the once over and starts talking about his teeth. Seems Max has got Periodontal disease. Heck, I've got that too. Anyway he wants us to start brushing his teeth, gave us a tooth brush and some antibiotics too. WTH! Brush the cats teeth? What, am I gonna have to do this with all my cats? Anyway this is Max the cat. If his eyes are open, he's looking for trouble.
