Cats on Tuesday & Toesday

Cats on Tuesday Here are some photos of my long Sphynx toes. Some people claim that Sphynx toes look like little fingers. In my case, because the skin on my toes is pink, they really do look like little fingers!

As I've mentioned before, my paws need to be cleaned regularly, just like the rest of me. Oils that my skin secretes build up and attract dust and dirt. To clean my toes, my mom gently presses on my toes to make my claws stick out. Then she wipes my claws clean with a damp washcloth or a baby wipe. She also cleans the claw sheathes, under my toes, and between my paw pads. It is also very important for her to clean the area between my plantar paw pad (the large one on the bottom of the paw) and my digital paw pads (the small ones under each toe) because dirt and wax can accumulate here, and if not cleaned regularly, can cause abscesses.

I love how your paws look like tiny little hands. They are so cute!

Parker said...

Your paws do look like hands! That is very cool! And very cute!

Are those your FEET, dude? That is, like, WHACK. But Sam has very weird feet too. He has a whole extra half of a paw growing out of each front foot and EIGHT toes. (But DON'T MENTION IT).

xxx FlatCat.

Please ignore my unevolved and ridiculous young colleague. Your feet are exceptionally elegant. Some cats might give one of their lives for toes of such delicate precision!

Sorrowfully,
Sampan

Dude! Your toes ROCK. You should become, like, a toe model! And it's, like, soooo great that this "Mom" of whom you speak gives you manicures. I KNEW that my life would be more, like, SPA-like if I lived in Europe.

I think you have nice toes. Rex kitties have paws similar. Prinnie needs to get her paws cleaned regularly, but not me.

You are really lucky to have someone cleaning your toes and "fingers" and your whole body oiled. Lucky Dragonheart.

Gemini said...

Oh Dragonheart, you are such a good cat to let your Momma do that. You do have cute toes. I wouldn't let people do that to me though!

You've got the most awesome toes we've ever seen, Dragonheart. That's way cool! I wonder if my toes would look like yours if I got them shaved. I don't think I'll try that tho. I don't think I'd trust Mom with the shaver.
Purrrrrrrrs,
Mini

FelineFrisky said...

The Furry Kids said...

At first glance, our Mom thought you posted a hand on your site. She said, "Why the heck is there a hand on DH's blog?" Then she realized it was your paw. You fooled her! Hahahahaha! Look out, though, because she wants to squoosh your toes.
Love,
Titus, Tazo, & Earl Grey

Hi, Dragonheart! I'm a happy girlcat because I've got my own Blogger account now.

Your toes are truly nifty -- they do look like little fingers! And all of us Ballicai love learning about your breed. We didn't know much about Sphinx kitties until we met you.

meeyauw said...

Those are such beautiful feet, Dragonheart. They do so much look human. But they are delicate and agile and a work of art. How lucky you are to have a home with your family.

Suzanne R said...

I thought I was looking at a human hand, too, in that first photo, until I realized that it was your paw, DH. It looks like it would be very delicate so I'm not surprised you need extra care with your feet. Thanks for teaching us more about your breed!

Jodi said...

Wow! They do look like fingers! Hope you had a great Tuesday!

Celeste said...

What beautiful paws.

Kuanyin said...

Your fingers/nails/paws are so gorgeous! And your Mom takes such good care of you! I bet your Mom was a Bast Priestess in another lifetime!

Mom Unplugged said...

Wow Dragonheart! I love those paws! You could go to the salon and get weekly manicures with paws like that. It sounds like your Mom takes great care of you!

Jake and Bathsheba said...

Utterly amazing paws, Dragonheart!

srp said...

You have such delicate toes... and they really do look like long toes, little baby toes....

We don't mind getting our toenails cut.. we sit still.. not like Maggie. Grandpa has to dress in three layers of clothes and put on oven mitts and has to put a muzzle on her and wrap her up in a towel and hold her... then our mom has to clip the nails. Something is seriously wrong with that cat in the head....

What cute tosies you have. Momma better not mess with mine like that, I get real sassy about it.

My sister, Mittens, has extra toes. I think she is handy capped.

Those are perfect toes, and I like them. Mine are long, too, but they're covered up with white hairs.

I found a friend called Crianhas she helped me so much that one time when I will be stronger and more powerful and get lots of flyff penya. I started to build it up without help and any flyff money, my friend helped a little but I did most of the work. My assist is level 57 and it is getting harder and harder, but my friends who use flyff gold to level me are the greatest. There is one thing and that it is addictive to buy flyff penya. My life as a vagrant began as being hard and lost without knowing but the people and the giant penguin which helped me to get cheap penya to power my assist.

Once I played Anarchy, I did not know how to get strong, someone told me that you must have Anarchy credits. He gave me some Anarchy Online credits, he said that I could buy AO credits, but I did not have money, then I played it all my spare time. From then on, I got some Anarchy gold, if I did not continue to play it, I can sell Anarchy online gold to anyone who want.
