Hey, (i'm not 100% sure about the age) but yes it's absolutely normal for cats to lose their teeth.. like humans, they have baby teeth they eventually replace with adult teeth. Now... i'm sure, somebody will confirm that this is one of the ages cats lose their teeth in.
I remember, going frantic thinking somehow in my sleep I must of hit Sunny and knocked one of her teeth out.. and I was going crazy... and I called the vet, and im like "Doc' Doc' ! !! Sunny's tooth fell out"... well he basically told me it was alright, and now she has a complete and healthy set of adult teeth.
