Yes, one of Evan's back feet faces upwards something like 90% of the time. Hind limb paralysis will do that to you. Don't worry, though, because it doesn't bother Evan one bit. As for me, I happen to think it's downright adorable.
Sometimes, Evan will have his downward facing back leg directly on top of his upward facing back leg. When he does that, it looks like he's clapping with his back feet. I always point that out to him, something with which Evan is not impressed.
Due to his hind limb paralysis, Evan never retracts the claws of his back feet. Much to his dismay, this makes trimming them very easy. Isn't that so unfair? Evan thinks so.
Happy Toesies Tuesday!
Doodle of the Day:
I think this is the last doodle, at least for now, that is strangely laden with what appear to be potions bottles and all that jazz. I'll very likely rehash these when Halloween rolls around, though. I do think I still have a couple similarly rustic sort of scenes in me, but I'll try to refrain from making them as wacky as the most recent ones.
Did you know?Did you know that cheetahs have semi-retractable claws, rather than fully retractable claws like other cats? This in part assists with better maneuvering when cheetahs reach their record high speeds while running. Their exposed claws allow for traction, for example, when a cheetah is speeding up or making a turn when chasing fast prey.
