How many claws should a dragon have? Well it depends on where it comes from. In China there were traditionally two kinds of dragon - the three clawed and the five clawed. Only Imperial dragons had five claws and any commoner who was found in possession of a five-clawed dragon would have his head chopped off with great ceremony.
Another Chinese legend tells that all dragons begin with five claws but, as they get further from China, they lose their toes. Consequently Korean dragons have four claws and Japanese only three.
English dragons have completely different feet from Oriental dragons. They are more like cats' feet. Most of Eldritch's plush friends have just three claws. And Eldritch doesn't have any at all! He's too gentle for anything so cruel.
