they took her to their vet who said 'your cat has no tongue"
so who would take such a cat? Me, of course.
She has from the tonsils back which is how she can swallow without choking. She has figured out how to eat, and even to drink. She puts here entire lower jaw in teh water dish adn moves it up and down to wash water to the back. Her biggest problem is grooming. Being a cat she of course wants to groom. She ends up drooling all over herself and coating herself with slime. yuck. So she gets regular baths and often wears shirts to give her skin some protection from her grooming efforts. She has gotten a little tubby and is very sweet.
So depending on how much of the tongue remains, yes they can. As long as they can swallow without choking they can.
forever in my heart
i am not the same without you.
