Cat Paw Prints

A search for cat paw prints can mean one of two things: a search for clip art of paw prints and/or a cat’s tracks left in sand, earth or snow and sometimes rock!

Consequently, I cover both topics on this page.

Clip art

Below I present a piece a clip art that I have purchased from iStockphoto. It links to a large format version so bits of it can be cropped out and used separately. These bits can be used for personal use but the clipart cannot be resold. You would be wise to refer to iStockphoto’s terms and conditions. One such permitted use under the terms is as follows: “on–line or electronic publications, including web pages to a maximum of 800 x 600 pixels for image or illustration Content or to a maximum of 640×480 for video Content..” That should suit lots of people.

Cat paw prints are fascinating. The cat’s paw is too. Please don’t harm it through declawing.

A cat’s paw contains scent glands for marking territory. Territory is also marked by scraping the ground with the claws.

Where are cats’ scent glands located?
