Paws

This is a photo of my paws. I know, exciting right?

Huffle 04

But I wanted to point out to you that when I first arrived here four and a half years ago, I had perfectly pristine black paw pads. That's because I'd been in the cat shelter for more than three months and I never got to go outside very much.

And for a few months mum and dad didn't let me outside here because they didn't want me to run away. Eventually I was allowed out in the back yard and ever since then my paw pads are much tougher, and they've gone grey.

I hope you don't like my paws less because they're grey.

We think your paws are purrfect, Huffle, and we must say, your claws are lethal weapons! :-D

Uhm, impressive, yes. We are full of admiration and a bit of fear.
We think we love you even more with grey paw pads.

Gray paws and long claws only show that you are a tough kitty and no one had better mess with you! Just 'cause you're a girl doesn't mean you're a wuss!

So with that one white hair and now gray pads, we think it gives you a very distinguished look, Huffle.

That was the same with me - I was a rescued cat and I had never ever been outside. Now my paws have blood blisters on them and hard little callouses.....

Wow! Those are quite the claws you have there Huffle!!!

I don't mind that your pads are gray. It's a nice contract to your shiny black fur.

Sorry about that above...I sat my cute little rear on the keyboard because I had to say something before I could meow something for my mom to type up.

Love those pawpads and toenails...and I'm a bit in awe since mine are still tender pads because I'm not allowed out.

Purrs to you Huffle Panther!

Sweet Praline said...

I have grey paws too Huffle. Even though I was in the shelter for a month or two, I still had really rough grey paws from being Outside. My paws actually got nicer once I got to my new home.

I think your paws are very beautiful. :)
