Cat paw control people must have a special interest in fleshy paws, but do you know about cat’s paws? What kind of secrets are hidden in their furry, fleshy claws?
The skin on the surface of the pad is thicker than that on other hairy areas, but it is sensitive because there are many nerves on the inside of the skin. It is precisely because of sensitivity that we can move smoothly in unstable places. Dull sole in the uneven place, is nothing to feel. And the meat pad is full of fat and elastic fiber, so that the sole can be closely combined with the concave and convex parts. In addition, the cat’s foot pads also play a role in anti-skid. The specific way is to sweat when you are nervous. There are no sweat glands on the cat except for the meat pad. Cats sweat not to regulate body temperature, but to prevent slipping. We humans, too, sweat on our palms when we’re nervous. When humans were monkeys, they sweated to prevent slipping when climbing trees. It’s the same thing with cats sweating on their pads. In addition, the fleshy and sensitive meat pad ensures that there is no noise during hunting, making it possible to lurk. It can be called a muffle pad. It’s very comfortable to touch the cat. If the owner can gently touch with emotion, the cat will open its claws, showing a very happy look. Rough stroking, of course, is intolerable. A big pad is not a palm. A cat’s forefoot has five bean sized pads and one that looks like a palm. It’s not the palm. All the pads are toes. The bean sized pads are the front of the toes. What looks like a “palm” connects the base of the toe to the second joint. Cats walk on pads that touch the ground, that is to say, only with their toes. The hind foot is the same as our human “walking on the toes.”. Animal skeletons have something in common, but what they use to touch the ground is different. Like humans, there are few animals that use their heels all the time, only monkeys, bears, pandas and raccoons. The reason why a panda can stand on both feet is that it has landed on its heel. Next, let’s find out where the cat’s heel is and where its wrist is. The joints of animals are the same, as long as you find the bending part of their hands and feet. The cat’s heel should go up a lot because there is Achilles tendon on the inside of the wrist. Also, try to find the wrist, elbow, and shoulder of your forefoot. Do cats have pads on their wrists? This is not a finger, because there are no six fingered animals. So why is there a meat mat in this area? This is not known. We just know it’s in the wrist. Maybe it’s the “forgotten thing” of evolution.
