Cat tracks 1 500x500

Cat footprints.

The prints show a cat’s right forefoot and hindfoot. The toes on the outside of the foot are slightly further back relative to the central pad, which is ‘heart-shaped’ and has three parts. The four separate toe pads will show in foot prints. The forefeet of adult cats are about 43mm long and 38mm wide (excluding claws), and the hindfeet 42mm long and 31mm wide.
