In preparation for the travels, I took Toonses into the vet for a dental work-up. Turns out, his hygiene was SO bad that they had to extract two teeth, and a third one fell out during the cleaning! Aside from his hygiene, he must take after his mom! He seems to be recovering well and has been quite spunky post surgery. What a trooper. He is now living like a king and eating more than his share of tuna.
