He actually grumbles at me when I clip the back claws! He doesn't like having his front ones clipped, but he just tries to pull it away and gives me the most pathetic look like 'how could you do this to me, I thought you loved me." But the back, "grrrr no touchie mommy!"
There are at least two extra toes on each front foot, one extra on each back. One of the extra claws on the fronts have odd claws. One one foot it's normal looking just very large and thick. On the other the claw is flat and slightly wavy. There is hardly any vein in it so it gets cut into a tiny square when I trim them, (this is how the vet told me to do it).
I just trimmed claws this week (on both kitties, and medicated and gave a preventative flea treatment, they were NOT happy!) When I trim, he usually hides the paws from me for a while, but I caught him sleeping and showing his flat wonky square claw off a little! And the picture shows I didn't cut it quite short enough.. but it works for now, he'll just have to have them trimmed a little sooner next time, poor guy!
I may look like I'm sleepin' but just try touching my freshly massacred claws and I'll show you that they still work.. Ok, maybe not, but I'll leave!
Oh boy are there cute kitties in the Winnie's Wish cathouse! Oh boy do they need their forever home! Are you their people? Do you know their people? Can you share them somewhere so we can see if their people see them from you?? Won't you help be the miracle for them? Please help someone (or you!) Opt to Adopt a darling from Winnie's Wish!
Here are just a few of the sweet kitties. You can see the rest on the sidebar of the Daily Dose blog!
Autumn, Shiloh and Truly were three kittens when they were rescued. They were found in a very remote place with no homes nearby. Chrystal and her family drove back and forth, forty five minutes each way, for around three weeks to capture kittens they thought they saw. That's dedication!
They assumed that the three were siblings, but Autumn is now believed to be several months older than the other two. Not old enough to be their mom, but too old to be their sibling. She's a very friendly kitty and loves other cats. She'd love a family of her own and if you already have other kitties in your house, she'd adore them.
Shiloh was the last to be captured, and how he kept disappearing is a huge mystery once they finally had their hands on him. He had a badly broken back leg, poor guy. He had surgery the very next day. There were also fractures in his hip bone but there was nothing that could be done for that. He's all healed up now and I don't believe he even acts like he knows there was ever an injury.
Shiloh is shy, but he loves his sister Truly. He's a sweet kitty, not aggressive, and he does like attention. He would do well with someone who could give him time to adjust, and hopefully, please, his security blanket sister.
