Ok so my awsome cat that is in my signature line is going on 12 years old.. she is the best! anyway I trim her nails about every 3 monts or so and have never had a problem. This morning I started trimming them and looked and one of her nails curled and was growing into her paw. I took some nail clippers and was able to easily clip it out. One snip and it came right out. But the top of the pad is pushed down and divided into two. I am not sure if this is alarm to take her into the vet. We really dont have the money, My husbands bridge for his teeth just broke and we have to get him a new one. I put some neosporin on it and she doesnt seem to be bothered by it, but one side looks a little dark. Could be dried blood. It started to bleed when I pulled it out. Or it could be the pad. I think that I am going to watch it for a few days and see what happenes. Please let me know if anyone has done this and regretted it..
