Yup. It’s true. When I was in high school, my older brother, Marsh, and I were talking about Rags. And he said, “Jen, I know this is kind of gross, but I sorta like the smell of Rags’ breath!”
And I then said, “So do I!”
Later on, when Rags was older, I took him to the vet and Dr. Gloor stuck her nose into his mouth, and I asked what she did that for. She said that certain mouths of cats that are sick smell differently and you can tell sometimes through that method.
She then mentioned that if you end up knowing the smell of your cat’s breath, then if they are sick you will be able to tell pretty quickly if something is going on.
So smell that cat breath, good people, smell away!
Do you smell your cat’s breath!?!
I smell Charlie and Trigg’s cat breath daily and also smell Caymus and Murphy’s when I go to my parents’ house.
