...left-pawed or right-pawed? I'd never noticed before, but current cat is definitely a southpaw. grin

The tabby is ambidextrous, (shakes with both), black and white is left-pawed.

Hah, my left-pawed ginger is most definately not g&t, having him neutered must have raised the IQ of the local population by several points!

It's his right paw that he uses most - does that make him right pawed?

The tail less wonder is right pawed, posh arrogant boy is ambidextrous (he would be).

I should add that the paw is mostly used on ME. (I want............ grin)

I've never really thought about it but I think right. She bats me with her right paw when I'm slow to obey and uses her right paw to scoop her food out onto my carpet!

So it doesn't seem they're like us, most of us right-handed, about 10% (I think?) left-handed, and a small number ambidextrous. A more even spread amongst our feline friends.

Interesting. Thanks for your input!
