    Thomas is getting his new canine teeth (if that's what you can call them in cats) His mouth looks like a shark. I'm surprised how quickly they have come on in the last 2 or 3 days. There is no redness or infection I can see but I am noticing he has lost a little bit of condition. Only a really little bit, most would hardly notice. Is there anything I can do to help him with this? Any tips to ease it for him? He has chew toys and was going to give him a chicken wing tomorrow night for first time. Is that likely to bother his tummy though?

    my boys are teething too! they are 21 weeks this friday, the top canine teeth are coming through before the baby ones have gone which looks odd! but hoping the baby ones fall out soon!
    Chicken wing should be ok, just watch him with the bones as his teeth are loose, one of my boys, Lightning, knocked out 4 baby teeth by chomping on a bone, they are growing nicely now but he still looks odd when hes eating and takes a lot longer
    give him something wooly, its meant to sooth the teething pains, mine enjoy fluffy socks lol :eek:
