Lamb Chop is coded as "special needs" because she was diagnosed with something called Plasma Cell Pododermatitis, also known as “Pillow Foot” in April 2014. The disease is NOT contagious. It has caused her two front-paw pads to become very soft and mushy. Pillow Pads is not contagious, and is not curable. The causes of this condition are not well understood, but it can be managed with an occasional antibiotic and steroid as needed. So far her vet doesn't recommend anything since her inflammation is very minor. It is rare in cats, but hasn’t affected Lamb Chop in any way. Her adoptive family must be aware of the need to monitor her pads.
