Stomatitis in Cats
Stomatitis sounds like something to do with the stomach… but it is not. Inflammation of the mucous lining of any of the structures in the mouth, which may involve the cheeks, gums, tongue, lips, and roof or floor of the mouth. The word “stomatitis” literally means inflammation of the mouth. (reference: Medical Dictionary)
Gingivitis is inflammation of the gums. Bleeding is a primary symptom, and other symptoms include swelling, redness, pain, and difficulty in chewing. (reference: Medical Dictionary)
Hard to believe Lucy celebrated her first birthday on 9-17-2021. We brought her home exactly 8 months ago. Two-thirds of her short life, has been with us. Sad when they start to get bigger and not a cute little bundle of fur as when you bring them home. We all know baby animals are so adorably cute, hard to resist. She was such a tiny little kitten, just a handful. Home coming.
And if you’re familiar with Siamese, you know they never quite grow up. Now she is still a handful of mischief. Do love every minute of it… well maybe not sometimes as you can read below. But keeping them healthy and inspired with fun things to do, they can bring you hours of laughter and joy.
She has graced our home with laughter and love. A happy, comical cat, and also mischievous.
Lily and Lucy both have red gums. There has been improvement since I first started on this quest. Lily’s breath improved. Their coat is silkier. Still, there wasn’t enough progress.
By appointment time for both cats, I made a recent purchase of cat food. Ugh.
Lily turned a year old on March 1, 2021. She arrived at our house 3 months ago. How quickly the time flies.
Hard to believe we went 7 months without a cat to grace our home. Now we have 2 wild fun loving cats.
The flying squirrel, aka Lily, has been pushing her limits with us.
She wanted to get on top of the 6-foot shelf in the office. Many attempts, with a firm ‘NO’ have gone on deaf ears. She has big ones, so I know she can hear.
Persistence finally landed her on top. Bolted up with a flash before I could abort the leap.
Back and forth she went as I tried to grab her. Hoped the scare of being dragged off the top might discourage future jumps. NOPE… not in the least.
We had been fighting this crazy adventure of hers for weeks. I guess she decided the day arrived to conquer the unknown.
