Dirty paws - how to clean?

August 12th, 2004, 11:54 AM
Hi All,

My cat was outside a few days ago and it appears she walked on a driveway that was being redone - not repaved, but having stones laid. Now she has grey paws that are not coming clean! I would prefer trying to clean them myself as I don't want her ingesting this grey dust or substance. I am assuming soap and water would be ok, but would vinegar also do?

Unless this substance is sticky, a few drops of dishwashing liquid in some warm water should do the trick. If that doesn't work, try adding a little baking soda and making a paste. Make sure you rinse thoroughly.

I wouldn't put vinegar on a cat's paws as she might object!
