Kitty Jellybeans

Ok, the second cutest thing aside from kitty noses, are kitty jellybeans. No, I'm not talking about the candy you get at Easter, I'm talking about their little paw pads on the bottoms of their feet! They totally look like jellybeans! I often wonder if Ginger and Vicktor's paws were real jellybeans what flavor would they be?

Ginger Roger's jellybeans ~ they would be strawberry or chocolate covered strawberry flavored.

Typical cats have four small toe pads and one larger one in the front and back. They are made of thick hairless skin but are sensitive to vibration and temperature. The thickness helps them to act as insulation and shock absorbers when they jump.

They also sweat through paw pads. The sweat regulates their temperature. When they scratch something they leave a scent trail too.

Cat paw pads come in lots of different colors just like noses...

Here's my friend's cat Sweet Baby Thor's jellybean...when I first saw it I thought it looks like a toasted pine nut. Do your kitties have paws that look like food?

p.s. Vicktor was being uncooperative and wouldn't let us get near his jellybeans. They are black licorice flavored.
