None of us here have had an x-ray, which was what we were going to blog about today if Mommy had written it for us on time. Auntie Lydia had one once on her intestines, and another one on her teeth. She had something called stomatitis, where her body was literally dissolving her own teeth! It's some kind of common autoimmune disease for cats, and can be prevented or at least lessened by regular brushing and seeing the vet for dentals. She had to have all her teeth pulled! She did just fine after that, though, and even ate crunchies after her mouth healed. We're glad the x-rays helped the vets figure out the problem so they could help her.
