Hello,

I have a couple of questions about my cat, Rascal. Rascal is currently twelve years old, and he's been having some trouble balancing himself when he stands up, some light limping, and he meows if you pick him up and by accident squish his back legs. Some of his problems we assume to be caused by arthreitis, but my dad noticed that his claws, in his back feet are not really retracting, they're staying in view- and we're wondering if maybe he's having pains in his feet due to the length of his claws. If this is the case- what can be done to shorten the claws without hurting him? Any ideas about my kitty?
Any suggestions for what to do with a cat whose got arthreitis in his back legs and/or hips? Medicine or Massaging techniques?

Thanks everybody very much.

- Sincerely,
Lauren Fitzgerald & Family
