Some cats have Long Claws (Cookie) as in long enough for their claws to stick out while sheathed(in). Or pretty normal so they don't stick out while sheathed, only un-sheathed(out). on a cat, there are five toes(sometimes) the four on the bottom, then the higher toe, on that one the claws always stick out.
When you think of a cat you think of it have 5 toes right? well, not All cats have 5 toes, no less than, but more is very possible. My aunts cat Noah had 7 toes on one paw, who recently died(2011). *snivle* *sniff* Anyway! Many many cats have 7 toes on 1+ paw. (Read the awesome book Toes, bout' a cat named Toes with 7 toes on each paw, great book!)
Don't Declaw Cats!! It Hurts!! And It Tortures Them To Not Be Able To Claw Things!!
