(Click either photo to view a larger image)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.
