    So i received my very lovely duck shoes yesterday from Nettie! ( my baby Pipers been having some issues with the starting signs of bumblefoot.. split skin and such. now he's running around outside with them on. I took some pictures of Piper modeling the shoes before he went outside. I will be posting pictures of him in action in the snow later on... these shoes are super cute and pretty easy to put on. and what matters most is i think they will help his feet heal alot better! i cant wait till his feetsies are healed!!also it keeps his feet warm in the snow, duck snow shoes!!! and he doesnt seem to mind them at ALL. the others looked at them real quick when he went back with them, but after a minute everything was back to normal.. he's just a little slower to start but has picked up speed after having them on all morning!
    Thankyou Nettie!

  8. Does he walk in them normal, or does he do that crazy thing cats do when they have something on their foot?

    Quote:he walks normal, just a little slower, sometimes steps on the other shoe with the other. he can run in them but looks a little goofy, kinda like a clown in oversized shoes or something. they def take a little time to get used to but Piper can jump onto steps with them on. the only thing he cant do is scratch his eye which is a good thing since he's having eye issues also, bubbles and clear liquid, he scratches at it more than the others scratch thier eyes so i think it'll be good so he doesnt step in poo and then scratch his but nettie sells pairs that can have the toenails out of the shoes, i just chose these cause he needs to keep his feet dry and clean so they heal well.
    thanks for all the comments on my Pipes (short for he seems to be doing a good job showing off netties shoes.
