Boo Cat has Boo Boo

Our beloved crazy cat Tika is in the vet hospital overnight because she either has an abscess in her mouth or a tumor. She has been acting normal - as normal as this crazy cat can be. But her new habit of drooling and the onset of simple-chronic-halatosis (spelling), which in her case was complex and quite fishy, indicated to us that there is something wrong. The vet explored her mouth and there we discovered the problem. It is not a pretty site.

Tomorrow they are performing dental surgery to see if it is an abscess. If not a biopsy will be performed. The vet doesn’t think that it looks good because it is an on the lower jaw – abscesses usually do not appear on the lower jaw, only the upper one.

Poor Tika.
