Lightning is about a year and a half old, shes a rescue kitty that we found near our apartment when she was a baby. She is half blue russian from what we can tell. Her gums have recently turned this odd solid grey color, and one of her teeth is kind of brownish. She doesn't seem to have a problem eating at all, but there is an odd red line where her gums and teeth meet. I was thinking she might have a gingivitus/tartar problem so I bought her some Whiska's Tartar Control treats, and she does eat a few now and then but she shows little intrest in them.. I tried a different brand and same thing. She eats her dry food without a problem though. I was wondering if anyone else has run into a similar problem, and if there are any good cat foods I could try that might help since she won't eat the treats? I've thought about trying one of the feline toothbrushes I've seen around at petsmart.. but I doubt she would let me anywhere near her with the thing lol.
