cat's paws problem.
my cat;'s dirty paws
hi! im from singapore. i have a 17 years old female cat named Tina. recently, tina has been licking all of her paws until its wet n her fur on her legs turn black (she's ginger in colour).why is it so? i will be bringing her to the vet next month but right now i have been searching for answers but failed. could you please help me? thank you so much.
Oh my goodness this is odd. I have not seen this before.
Have you checked that your cat does not fleas or any other skin mites? This should be your first option.
Other than that are you sure she has not walked in something which she is trying to remove. See if there is a smell to her fur or if it is sticky at all.
The fact that she is licking all of her paws would suggest that she is trying to get something off. It may be an idea to give her a foot and leg bath using a very mild baby shampoo.
Although as this is very odd i do think that a trip to the vet is a good idea as he will be able to do a thorough examination.
Hope all is well
