Paws's paw.

I have just spent fifteen minutes chasing Paws round the house trying to get a good look at his paw. He is one hairy cat and has very hairy paws but there was a something growing out one of his toes, he was limping and every two minutes he was stopping to pick at it. I thought he might have torn a claw out or something. Still, he wasn't keen for me to look at it and kept on running for cover. When I did finally get hold of him (using a large towel for body armour) he still put up quite a fight and gave me a couple of good nips.

It was a sugar puff stuck in his fur.

So while I am very glad he's okay and that I'm not going to have to tale him to the vet, that's fifteen minutes of my life I'll never see again and I have two cat bites in my thumb. My knitting thumb at that. Pets, eh? Worse than the bloomin' kids!

Better a bitten thumb than a vet's bill, I say. But a sugar puff, really. That's spoilt his macho reputation quite a bit.

Hilarious! I sympathise with the battle, I chased my very hairy cat round the living room yesterday to finish cutting a huge lump of matted fur from near his rear end ( I started on it a week ago, it's a delicate operation). I got it eventually, one down, two more to go and it's over until next summer when we start the game again...

Best laugh of the day - thanks!

Oh no, cats are SO bad for things like that. At least you've avoided an horrendously expensive trip to the vets.

Hi

Can I ask a question please? I'm on the west coast of Sctland with no spinning experience but the chance of buying a frank herring wheel for about half price. I googled herring and you were the only fan I found. I would greatly value your advice about whether it would be a useful thing to buy. My email is tinyshinythings@gmail.com Many thanks, Sally.

Hah! Was looking for info on cats with hairy paws as our Fred has lots of fur there. Very funny post!

I don't know... if someone was chasing me around to take a sugar puff off me, well I might bite them too.
