I've noticed that you can see Vlad's teeth even though his mouth is closed. I have a picture so you can all see.

Do you all have any cats that have their teeth like this? I'm now just wondering if maybe that will irritate his lips at some point.

I can see both my cat's pointy teeth sticking below their lip when their mouths are closed, I think it's normal.

Thanks for answering! Oksana's teeth don't do that and I've never seen any pictures of other cats like that, so I was wondering if it was something I needed to worry about. LOL, as if I don't worry enough about them.

Some of my cats are like that but not all. I think it's normal, too. Just differences in cats.

:laughing: Kitty vampire.... that IS what they look like. And ya all of mine have that where they stick down below the lip a little. Its because the top canines are longer than the bottom teeth I think.

It's good to know its normal. I just wasn't sure if I should say something to the vet or not. LOL, he is taking my email literally, because my main email is kittyvamps, and I have an online ID on ebay called black kitty vamps.
