Toes Tuesday

Thought I’d do a Toes Tuesday today because I haven’t been getting enough use out of my new toy. Unfortunately my toes aren’t anywhere near as cute as Dragonheart’s (in fact they aren’t cute at all) so be warned! If you’re really squeamish, close your eyes now and scroll down a bit, or jump to here.


















Okay, hope I left enough white space round the photo so you scrollers/jumpers didn’t get a disagreeable shock! For those of you brave enough to actually view the thing, notice the horrible purplish blotching of the skin and the ragged nature of the toenails? Isn’t that the horriblest image you’ve seen all day? I don’t know why I’m so blotchy, but I do know why the toenails are ragged: they are just too tough for me to be able to clip them evenly, even though I have a super-duper pair of clippers specially designed for toenails! Doh! (Wish my fingernails were tougher, they are having a spate of breaking at the moment.)

On a more pleasant note, thank you to everykitty and bean who has signed my guest book. I really appreciate it so please keep those signatures coming:)


P.S. Please somecat, do my corn poll:)

The LL has feet that are always hurting her. I tell her she should just go without shoes but she doesn't seem to think that would work for humans.

I did! I did! I did the corn poll!

Lux said...

Haha - my mom says you're very brave - no way are HER toes going on display! (She says she has long monkey toes, sort of like me, I guess.)

Dragonheart said...

Your feet don't look too bad to me, except for the ragged toenails. My humans are both marathon runners, so they have ugly feet from all that running!

Regarding corn: the corn here in Germany is not very good, mainly because Germans feel that corn is an animal food, not a people-food. Which is upsetting to my mom, because she LOVES corn. Growing up, her Siamese, Whiskers, loved to eat sweet corn, but I've never had any myself, since, as I said, German corn isn't very good.

I'm sure my 'sis would love your toes regardless, she's pretty much toe mad... ;)

Karen Jo said...

Your toes look better than mine. I have a toenail fungus that is resistant to all treatment. It got so bad that my big toenails had to be removed. My big toes look rather odd now.

Bean where her crocks to baseball game and her feets get sunburned through the holes, so now she have spotted feets. Very funny!

Gemini said...

Momma laughed. She said she never noticed her feet until she tried to take a photo of one with a needle for her acupuncture site and then she thought hers looked bad too!

The Cat Realm said...

Nice meeting you black cat! I signed your guestbook, it's a great idea.

And as long as those toes move I think any cat would give them the bitey!

My Opposable Thumb Wench says humans are welcome to come to my party, but should expect to be immediately drafted into worshipping pussycats.

Hi black cat, thanks for coming to visit my blog and the purrfday wishes.

I am glad you are enjoying blogging, it's an adventure but look at all the nice cats and beans you've met.

Now next year you has to encourage your mum to buy some sandals, and some lotion and get out in the 3 days of summer that England has, and get her tootsies tanned. They are awfully white feet. My mums are worse, but it is only spring here and her sandals are ready to go.
