This answer was rated:

I discovered some fleshy growths between my cat's toes while trimming her nails. They are not attached to the toes and are soft, covered with fur. I had to push them aside to get to her claws. She has them on both feet on the left side. She doesn't seem bothered by them.

Good Morning and welcome. I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.

It is not unusual for older cats to develop extra skin in these areas of the paws from years of movement. Since these are covered with fur, this is a normal age related occurrence and will not harm her....the only time this may cause a problem is if they grow large enough to interfere with function and this is very rare.

Does that make sense to you?

Please let me know if you have ANY other questions. My goal is to give you 100% satisfaction and if you are not yet satisfied, please Reply so I can clarify for you
