In those days gone by, most shoe repair stores carried a big logo advertisement of a black cat with green eyes, viewed as a profile, holding up one paw. The cat advertised the brand of rubber soles, "CAT'S PAW", which would be the mostly likely brand used in the repair of soles and heels for shoes. The "Cat's Paw" logo was almost the equivalent of the barber pole, which marked the site of what was then a "man's haven."

Long-haired cat breeds show off luxurious coats of long locks. The fur on the bottoms of many of these cats’ paws sprouts forth in tufts between the pads. Maine coons and Norwegian forest cats in particular have a propensity for these tufts. This breed characteristic enables these cats to traverse the snowy grounds that are typical to the regions from which they originated. Think of your Maine coon’s furry paws as her own built in set of snowshoes.

Indoors, your Maine coon’s snowshoes act more like fuzzy slippers that may cause sliding on wooden floors when she’s in her zoom around the room mode. Some cats find these tufts of fur disturbing when they tickle the paw pads. In such cases, the cat may lick her paws excessively and even make attempts to pull out the tufts. If either of these scenarios seems familiar, your veterinarian can trim the excess length of fur from her paws. Bring any cat who licks her paw incessantly to her veterinarian for a thorough inspection so that he may determine the cause for her discomfort and treat the problem. A little daily attention to your kitty’s paws will keep her strutting along on happy feet and affectionately touching your cheek with her velvety paw.

I recall, as a child, both I and the many other neighborhood children enjoyed playing a game called "Hopscotch", which was mostly a game played by the little girls. In the game, one used what was called a "potsy" which was thrown and landed on some chalk drawn numbered grid, drawn on the sidewalk. Most often, the "potsy" would be a discarded rubber heel, coming from the repair of men's shoes. Mr. Sikora would delight us neighborhood kids by discarding the old rubber heels removed from shoe repairs, and keeping them in a bucket (saving them) for us. I can recall going into Mr. Sikora's shop and asking for "any rubber heels today?" Usually, I would be rewarded with a few of them, naturally of the "CAT'S PAW" variety. That would be a highlight of the day, receiving a few discards!It is also part of our culture. Folks even claim it was Cat’s Paw that identified the bluchers worn by Amelia Earhart, as a pair of shoes found on the island Nikomaroro could be identified by the Cat’s Paw soles, or so . And it appears as a clue in murder investigations, including the Waterbury, Conn. murder in 1974.A while ago I came across somones pic. She had on regular everyday normal tennishoes. But there was a catch. The toes of the shoes were built up to resemble cat toes. Liek a paw almost. Now this was just the normal shoe.. with a cat paw front made out of the same material as the normal shoe.My mom always put Cat Paw taps on our new shoes growing up (for the record, I am 40 years old.) A new shoe repair store opened on my block and I thought, GREAT! I will drop off my new pair of boots and get Cat Paws. The cobbler had NO IDEA what I was talking about. Instead he tried to sell me a set of cheap plastic bits that didn’t even resemble shoe taps or soles for my boots. I googled when I got home and found your article. I am so bummed out! Cat Paws were the best! Luckily, the shoe maker my mother uses is still in business (in da Bronx) and he still has Cat Paws in stock. I am going there this weekend.
