Kon and the Betternarian.


Today while I was lounging around, Mom came in the apartment, scooped up Kon, stuft him into a carrier and whisked him away.  I cried a lot, because I missed my brother.  He came back about an hour later and was rather flustered!  He said Mom took him to the Betternarian.  

He had lost a big tooth on the bottom on Sunday and Mom was it would get infected, so they went to the doctor.  It looks like where the tooth was, the root is still there, and the doctor said that it looked like the top big tooth was irritated too and would probably fall out later.  But the worst thing is that Kon has to get a surgery to remove the root and check out the other one.  So he'll be going to the Betternarian AGAIN!!!  Sometime next week.  The only problem is, it's pretty expensive.  About $300 which mom isn't sure where she and Dad will be able to find that.  Especially since Dad is a Teacher Assistant and doesn't work fulltime during the summer.  But it has to be done, so I know they'll find a way.

Oh Kon! Maybe you could put the tooth under the pillow and the tooth fairy will leave some money. At least that's what my pet human says.

Tell dad to work extra tutoring hours to make the dough for the cat.
Or he could sell one of his lungs.
