So they will be there as a vestigial structure because the fur on the bottom of the feet is not hurting them.

Humans are putting trash and oils into the water, so having a larger liver will help filter out the water when they have to drink it. This can also be a analogous structure because it is different sizes for every animal but it serves the same purpose.
