Our cat has no upper front teeth. All of the other cats we have
do. Anyone else notice this in their cat? The cat is only 4-5 years old and eats fine.

Sonia, the black cat in this picture, is the cat without the teeth..

1. My cat had to have 8 teeth pulled last year
she gained about after the procedure.

2. It is the tiny little incisors on the top that are missing.
My daughter actually discovered this, though I have no idea what she was doing looking into the cat's mouth. The cat still has her canines and back teeth, so apparently it's not a big deal.

3. My four-year-old
is missing 2 of the tiny little teeth on the top, too. The rest of his teeth are perfectly fine and the vet hasn't ever said anything about it.

He's indoor-only and eats organic food. I'm assuming it's not a problem. I don't know what they use those teeth for anyway, lol.

6. Based on our other cats, there should be six of those little teeth
between the canines. She's only four and the rest of her teeth are fine.

4. I like your chair!
Many cats are missing some of those little tiny teeth. Don't worry.
