What is this hard growth on cat’s paw pad?

by Carly
(Florida)

I noticed my cat had a hard growth on both back paws. The cat only had mild irritation when I touched them and one looks scab-like. Half was peeling off with healthy skin underneath. The cat lives inside on carpet so I don’t know how it could be a callous. Please Help.

A burn?

Could it be a burn from jumping onto a hot stove? Only your vet knows for sure.
