...i can't explain this well, but my cat is polydactyl and i noticed that he has a claw growing in between his toes. if these were the toes UUUU then the extra claw would be UIUUU where the I is. it is very difficult to clip and he doesn't like me to touch that area. he is fine and calm until i try clip that claw. i know it's not growing into the pad b/c i have managed to clip it. is that normal? do all cats have that? he has one extra toe on his right foot and the nail is very brittle and does not get sharp. i clip it b/c i fear it will grow into the paw pad. also, he has softpaws on and last night i clipped the ends so that they come off quicker. they've been on for more than six weeks and he gets himself caught in blankets. thanks to whoever suggested it!
