Cat Claws

I found 3 of my cats back claws on the floor... And it looks like the whole claw. Is it bad? Do I need to take him to the vet?

It is normal for your cat to shed the outer "shell" of his claws. You are likely to find these around your home from time to time, and it is not really a cause for concern.

Thank you for writing in with concern for your cat!

All the best,
