Cats Claw (Calliope Reaper-Jones, #2) by Amber Benson1.0 out of 5 stars what is the target audiences age? July 24, 2010
This review is from: Cats Claw (A Calliope Reaper-Jones Novel) (Kindle Edition)
I was lacking in reading material and decided to search my bookshelves for long forgotten authors. I located a book by Amber Benson that turned out to be book one of this series. I was immediately excited thinking I had a newly discovered series to follow. I did not reread book one. Thinking if I kept the book surely I must have liked it. I purchased the next book in the series Cats Claw. BIG MISTAKE!
To say Cats Claw has pacing issues would be polite. Truth is it is excrutiatingly slow moving. Cali the protagonist spends pages upon pages whining about her misfortune, her heritage, her wardrobe, or lack of financial stability. She was shallow and easily manipulated. Cali proved time and again how uneducated she was in magic & ignorance pertaining to what her familys business entailed. This continuously placed her and others near her in danger and causes her to relay on other peoples knowledge. Cali spent pages preaching to the reader about her independance & providing the reader examples of how independent she believed herself to be. Unbeknownst to Cali she repeatedly proved herself dead weight in a crises. The only reason I finished this book was so I could give a review.
Claw and Nail Disorders in Cats
Of the different types of nail disorders, two are the most common. Paronychia is an infection of the nail bed that inflames that tissue around the nail and onychomycosis is a fungal infection of the nail. Each of these issues can have serious and painful effects on the cat. Nail disorders in cats come in a variety of forms and from several different causes. These disorders are typically caused by some form of infection in or around the nail bed.
Located at the end of each toe, the claws help the cat climb, balance, grip prey, defend against attacks from other animals and protect the toes digits. The claws are continually growing, with the outermost layer sloughing off every few weeks to make way for a newer, sharper claw. Cats have five digits on each front foot and four digits on the hind feet. The claws on the front feet are retractable. Some cats have extra toes, usually on the front feet polydactyls.

While some fear the feline claw as a dangerous weapon, others admire the beauty and functionality embedded at the base of the cat paw. The extension of the skeletal system allows cats to mark their territory, kill prey and gently get the attention of the ones they love. When claws are healthy, they are a thing of beauty and awe. When claws have problems, felines can become very uncomfortable to the point their posture is effected, early arthritis sets in and a sedentary lifestyle becomes a habit. The feline claw is an epidermal structure with a quick running through the middle. The claw is made up of an insoluble protein called keratin.
