Based on the photo of the lovely Orion, he's part Norwegian Forest cat and part bull dog! Love how his legs go straight back. Other cats don't (can't) do that. That doesn't make him deformed, it makes him extra special. He is absolutely gorgeous.

As for the abscess, I agree that it might be an underlying infection. I had a similar problem with my own jaw, that reared up during a dental procedure. Once we realized what was going on, got it drained, zapped with heavy antibiotics - I haven't had a problem since. We will all keep our fingers crossed that this will pass.

Thanks MissNM, I think he's extra special too Never thought of him as part bull dog tho', LOLOL He's very sweet, laid back and intelligent. I've never had a cat that could do that with their back legs though. He'll sometimes 'melt' off the bed instead of jumping down he'll slide, I wish I could catch it on video it's hilarious, he stretches out as he is in the photo and just slips off like a silk blouse.

I'm hoping this round of antibiotics works, he's very annoyed with me shoving things down his throat and in his mouth. But he still came and let me know something was wrong and I'm very glad he did poor guy had to be in pain.

CFoulke the vet said he'd do an x-ray but he doesn't have dental x-ray equipment so he couldn't tell if the other vet took the root when he did the original extraction so we're kind of in the dark. He's changed the antibiotic so we're hoping this will do the trick. It's quite possible he has a deep infection, I'll ask the vet when I go next week. I'd hate to see any of the guys or Judy (my GSD mix) suffer but Odie is my favorite by far, not only is he the sweetest and the most bonded to me, I think he was too young to be taken from mom but he also came into my life when I needed him probably more than he needed me. Our bond is deep.

Threestep he seems better he's doing things he hasn't done in a while, like the odd way he's laying in that picture. He's not happy with the meds but I think he understands it's necessary, he doesn't run and hide when he sees me with them.
