I don't really know anything about why her paw is pink, but I do about the excessive litter digging! Spook does it everytime! He is confused, I believe!
Cause sometimes he'll even scratch around his food, just around the floor around the outside of the bowl! I thought, he is not really hungry, so he does the scratch thing as if to maybe save it for later!
I have often
wondered why he does all of the scratching to the litter though! None of the others do it, just him! When he starts it , I'll tell him, "Ok, that's enough"and he turns a deaf ear, and keeps on! Litter will be scattered from here to there!
Maybe he's just oversenitive about anyone smelling it, and I guess that is
one of the many things I love about cats, is that they are all different!
They all have something about them which makes them just that much different from the other!
I hope it is nothing serious about your babies paw!!If it is getting bigger, I
would be going to the vet! I don't think just chafing would get bigger! unless it is infected, and like LDG said, have you pushed on it? If it is senitive and you gently push on it just a little, well pus may come out, or a howl from her and then a visit to the vet is for sure!! I'll be keeping ya'll in my thoughts!
