As far as cleaning Torrie's teeth goes. If Torrie's teeth are strong and healthy and just covered with tarter - you may be able to clean them yourself and save the danger of an anesthetic. This all depends on whether she will chew on some meaty RAW bones. My cats absolutely love raw rabbit and the rib bones are soft so that is a good start. Raw chicken necks are also really safe to try. The gnawing on the bones and connective tissue scrapes the tarter off the teeth. That tarter is fairly soft and sometimes you can just flick it off with your thumbnail for starters. My cats will never, ever need to have their teeth cleaned because they get raw, meaty bones. This is very controversial and I have no medical training - so consider the source. There is lots of information on the internet about raw feeding cats and I fed mine raw meat for two years and they absolutely love it. We are on a meat canned diet at the moment - but for them, Sunday morning will still be chicken leg Sunday and when they get done with the raw chicken leg - there is nothing left and their teeth are sparkling clean. My guys have strong teeth to start with - chewing on raw bones could cause teeth problems - I just want you to know that.
