Although cats have been domesticated for a long time, they still have the ferocity of their ancestors: you only have to look at their fangs! But even if they want you to take them seriously, sometimes they look hilarious when they show their teeth. One of the best places to see cat teeth is the subreddit Teefies (not to be confused with Toofers, which is for dogs). Don’t miss it.
Here we have compiled this fun and adorable list of cats showing their teeth, to make your day. Enjoy the pictures and share them with the cat lovers you know.

Cats need their 30 adult teeth cleaned regularly. If you don’t feel comfortable brushing them, you can take them to the vet once a year to do so. If your cat’s teeth become broken, infected or painful, they may need to be removed. The process is the same as for humans. The tooth is put under anaesthetic and removed. Sometimes it is stitched and antibiotics and painkillers are prescribed. Most feel better afterwards and can eat within a few hours.
