Well, they say things happen for a reason. An infected paw wouldn't help 
anything heal.  Glad you found it.  I have a cat who has that happen all the 
time.  He is semi feral, and the vet has to clip his hails.  He is diabetic, 
and i don't mess with that.  Give her extra loves...as if I had to tell you to 
do that!!!


"When you are in the service of your fellow beings, you are only in the service 
of your God"
