Hooray! ET lets me brush his teeth!
I am really so excited! I bought a baby toothbrush yesterday, just to see if ET will tolerate something in his mouth. I let him sniff it last night and let him chew it yesterday.
This morning he came to me for a chin rub on my desktop again. I thought I'll try this time to actually use the brush and do a mock brushing without toothpaste. To my surprise! he actually showed me his teeth and let me brush both sides of his teeth. Come to think of it, I realised I didn't know how to do it properly, I only managed to brush his front top teeth, but I am really excited enough. I wanna go buy toothpaste, but then again ET almost always tolerated anything dry, if I were to add toothpaste, he may resist. Whatever the case, I'm gonna try.
It just makes me wonder if ET was an abandoned cat and not a total stray. He knew "sit" right from the start. He knew how to use the litter box right from the start. Now, he tolerated teeth brushing without an issue. Though at other times, he didn't tolerate many other handlings. I am really beginning to think he was once a house pet.
