Ball's Sad Day

It's Friday evening after 9.  Just got home a short while ago from grocery shopping for our Father's Day feast, and hubby and I finally - after about 8 tries - gave Ball a pill.  Ball is one of our 4 Tonkinese cats.  He's 12 1/2 years old now, and we just noticed last night that his left fang tooth was loose and at an angle.  I saw that it was in bad shape and needed to come out.  Called the vet this morning, and he was nice enough to fit us in at noon.  After taking blood, giving him a checkup, an antibiotic shot, and an opiate pain killer, he was able to extract the tooth with a hemostat.  I'll bring him back in another couple of weeks to have the rest of the teeth examined and a dental cleaning.  Meanwhile, twice a day we have to give him one of these antibiotic pills.  You've seen this on the internet, right?  How to Give a Cat a Pill?  Well, it's all true!
