Just a note because we have looked into this, the 4 that are left are likely the canines, the most deeply rooted ones. The ones on the bottom are even more deeply rooted from my understanding. Sort of a tip of the icebug thing. Sometimes removing those last 4 teeth are difficult is what we were told anyway. But certainly if teeth are so rotten, to the point of pain and infection, best to remove them unless there is severe risk to the cat according to a responsible vet.
