I hope she heals well. IMO, cats w/o teeth can eat basically the same as cats w/ teeth....you may have to be more selective with kibble size. Twitch loves her dry food, but I have to be selective. Nutro's adult bites are too big. Purina ONE & Purina Naturals, Science Diet, Eukanuba, etc are all a great size for her(go figure, the junk!). I am working on getting her to eat the Nutro adult, I think it's just that she prefers to eat the Purina junk....Innova/EVO also work. I *think* Natural Balance dry is about the same size as Innova, not sure, tho.
Allie, sounds like Raphael did great having his teeth extracted. I wish Twitch had healed so well(it took a few days).
Gaye, I should have just taken all of Twitch's teeth out when she was 7 months old. It would have saved her a lot of pain(it took 2 years for me to finally take her teeth). I honestly didn't think she could eat like a normal cat if her teeth were removed, turns out, she can eat faster than cats with teeth!
I know it may sound bad, but I love it with Twitch yawns all toothless. It's just plain cute!
