I'm going to look at all mine's paws tonight -- well, those that aren't
feral, anyway.
You're right Terrie---he got a lot of loving and care from you while he
was here that he otherwise wouldn't have got.

Hi all,
A few years ago some of you older members may remember Ling. 
As he is no longer with me as he had passed on to the bridge.
For you newer members.
I took in a male Siamese that was 19 yrs old that had the same thing.
All of his claws on his front paws were in the flesh. 
So he the had surgery done ASAP immediately right there.
When I got him I had noticed he was walking funny. Then I look at his
paws thought to 
myself "Oh My God" there was no way I could do anything.
I can't imagine the pain he was in. Poor old fella.....
I have to tell you though when it was done he was like a kitten again
shortly after surgery. 
I end up losing him after a year to kidney failure but at least he had
some happiness and medical care from me that he wouldn't have gotten
Well I won't be taking Snowy in for spaying this coming week.  I went to
clip her nails tonight and noticed that there was a big lump on her
right paw.  When I touched it she meowed so I got her into the emergency
vet.  They told me I did nothing wrong that this had happened to her
over a very long period of time.  Her nail had grown into her skin,
along with hair and they had to put her under and remove it.  It had
grown far into her pad and couldn't be removed easily.  I don't get
this.  She had seen 2 vets prior to our getting her and no one noticed
this.  Now the poor little thing has to be on antibiotics (Clindamycin)
and wear one of those horrible hood things so she won't lick her paw.
She had a piece taken out of it and cauterized.  I am so sorry for what
this poor little dear has been through in her short life.  I just hope
all this trauma doesn't cause her herpes virus to resurface.  The first
thing the vet did when we got her there was to squirt eye wash into her
eyes and she got all upset.  I kind of yelled at him for doing that and
asked why.  He said she looks like she has allergies and I said "she's a
persian their eyes tear".  Fortunately there was a very knowledgeable
technician present who seemed to know a lot more than this guy did.
