I was inspecting my three cats teeth(just like I was told by my vet to do) just a few minutes ago and I noticed that each of them has deep natural lined running down each of the k-9 teeth. I was wondering where I had seen this before and it hit me! Bayonets and other blades made for stabbing into flesh have these to reduce suction and make retracting the blade out of your opponents flesh easier. So, do you think this is a natural fix to when cats had to hunt for their food? Anyone know if my theory is correct?

M4 They are fangs and if you piss them off they will bite you, then suck your blood out of your body. [}:D]

Are they from Transylvania?

Ah, yes. You have a rare specimen of the Transylvanian Vampire Cat. Although, their name is actually a misnomer, for their lineage can be traced directly back to Cleopatra and the ancient Pharoahs. edited for syntax syntax syntax

Sounds viable. Blood channel. Blood groove. Something like that.

Just don't let your cats sit on your chest while you sleep, they will suck the life out of you... BISHOP

some cat fangs are also free floated to allow maximum accuracy when biting...[rolleyes]

On well, it sounds good anyway.

Hell, I'd buy that. Microevolution works. J.

I am trying to fit muzzle brakes on my cats' fangs, but they won't sit still to allow me to pin and solder them on. See, they are post-ban cats, born after 9/94. Maybe I should just wait until next Sept, when I can thread them on the little monsters. -934

I think your cat has the pre-ban fangs. They are probably illegal in MD. [dracula]

This is actually a misconception. "Blood-grooves" is a misnomer. They don't reduce suction and make pulling blades out easier. They are actually called fullers, and they serve the same exact purpose as fluting on a rifle barrel or temple collumn. The fullers are there to a)make the knife/sword/bayonet lighter (when properly fullered, tapered, and tempered, this can be anywhere from 20 to 35% lighter), and b)to increase it's rigidness. This same principle was applied in the development of steel I-beams for construction.
