ABOUT THE IMAGE AT THE TOP OF THIS PAGE

A cat’s claws do not retract completely inside the sheath. When a cat’s claws are in a retracted position, they are up off the ground, resting in the fur around the toes. When a cat wants to use his claws, he contracts a tendon to extend them out and down. The extension and retraction of a cat’s claws is similar to the way in which a person points their toes and flexes their ankle back.
