Re: cat and their teeth

I suppose I should clarify what I mean by a cat's teeth-cleaning.  He
doesn't go over the whole mouth with floss and clean every tooth, nor does
he blast them with soda or massage the gums. He just takes a good look and
if there's a little tartar, he scrapes it off .  This way it doesn't build
up for 4 yrs to the point of needing an extensive cleaning.
