Cat surgery

Well, after 8 1/2 years of owning our low-maintenance cat, we finally had to spend some real money on him. Fosse was born with bad teeth (perhaps he was from England). I guess we could have been brushing these teeth all these years, but let's face it.....that was never going to happen. So the poor thing had rotting sad and gross and probably painful.
On Wednesday, he had tooth extraction surgery. He now has only one big tooth left. How sad is that! You should have seen him when he still was doped up. His back legs wouldn't work and he looked drunk. We now just have to shoot him up with pain meds (that's fun) and give him the yucky soft food. Poor thing, but I guess he's been a great (yet slightly psycho) pet, so what's a measly $350?
