Does anyone have a method of cleaning dirty, stained paws? Jinxi's paws are stained yellow and I just can't get the stains out. I have used the white shamppos with no luck so I'm wondering if there is anyone who has a recipie to get them out?

I bathe my baby every other week and one of the steps of the bath is Dawn (Blue) dish washing soap. I've never had a problem with getting anything out.
Good luck!

Eye envy. It's the best..., you could use diluted boric acid as well, I think Joanie
knows the recipe.

The boric acid powder recipe is on the bottle...1 teaspoon of the powder
to one cup of cooled boiled water.
Works, but not as well as eye envy.'
The stains are probably coming from kitty washing his eye area..keep that area clean with
eye envy, the boric acid mix or even a non rub contact lens cleaner, and you will see that the paw stain will lessen.
But whatever you use to clean the eye area, just put some on a cotton pad and go over the stained area on the paw at the same time.

Purrs,
Joan

Thankyou! Joan, do you know where to buy the boric acid? I have tried making a paste with the eye envy but it just uses up much of the product and the stains are all around her feet, just not around the sides of her legs which she uses to clean her face. The stains are coming from her saliva and her using the cat litter. I was she frequently 3x a month, but the stains remain.

Nadine, in Canada, you will have to ask the pharmasist for it~~~at any drugstore..
I got mine at a Shoppers..
But don't leave this on the kitty in a paste...I'd be afraid it would be very toxic if licked off.
Purrs,
Joan

Joan, how long do i leave it on for? I don't think Jinxi could stand around for more than 5 minutes....will it burn her in any way? Hurt her skin?

Nadine...I've never used it as a paste....
I do as the bottle says, mix 1 teaspoon with 1 cup of cooled boiled water.
Then I just soak a Qtip and use to clean the area under her eyes, along the side of her nose.
Then I dry by blotting with a makeup pad.
Sometimes I will soak a makeup pad and clean under her chin with it.
But the places I have been using it, she can't lick at...
I'm not too sure about using it on her paw..not sure how safe it would be if she licked at it.
Why don't you try soaking a makeup pad with your eye envy and rubbing that on the stain on her paw?
Or maybe try washing her paw with diluted Dawn, it would be easy to rinse off, just hold her paw under running water...maybe if you did that once a week, eventually the stain would lighten?

I just don't know if it's safe for a cat to lick the boric acid solution even if it's mixed weakly..

Purrs,
Joan
