quick Q about taking a paw print from kitty

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hello Everyone
I have a question about getting a paw print from our kitty. I want to get a tattoo done of his pawprint but I know I shouldn't use ink because he will lick it off and get sick. What would be the best way to get a detailed pawprint from him without getting him sick or hurt? I need it to be detailed as possible so it is as original as possible and not just a generic cats pawpring tattoo. What do guys think would be the best way to get this done? Thanks in advance.

You can lightly wet the bottom of the chosen paw and put him down on brown paper bag and he will leave his pawprint .

I thought about that but I don't think that will make it detailed enough. I would have to draw around it. I'll give it a try it tonight though.

You can always wet all four paws enough for him to walk all over the paper and have many prints to choose from.

my groomer does plaster prints of kitties paws - i know she uses some special stuff and then cleans their paws with something else and it doesn't really stick to their paw furries

Is it the stuff they use to take impressions of teeth? I can't remember the name of it though!

That is a good idea. My wife is a dental assistant I'll ask her to check and see if it is safe and bring some home.

I'll also try the many prints on the paper tonight as well.

If I can get a good one tonight or tomorrow I'll get the tattoo done this weekend and post it for all to see.

Thanks again for all the help everyone, I really appreciate it.

You can have the kitten step on a pane of glass and take a photo from underneath. Then you can do some photo shop wizardry to get the perfect paw print.

If you really want a 1 dimensional print, you could try something like kool-aid or food coloring. Something that won't hurt kitty when he licks his paw, would be water soluble so you could wash (most of) it off, but will leave an ink-like impression on a piece of paper.

However, I can't really offer any advice on getting kitty to cooperate with this exercise, unless you start while he's completely asleep.
