Happy Dance!!!

Thank you...thank you...thank you...Kat for explaining how to trim cat's nails.  I went out and got some clippers and the whole thing took about 1 minute and she was so good about it.  I am sooooo excited to have found out how EASY this was.  No declawing for our little girl! rock!

Oh, I am doing my own little happy dance over here for both of you. Hurray!!!

I'm so glad she won't need to be declawed. Maybe she'll let you file them, too. Leo doesn't like it, but he doesn't fight the filing. He's sort of resigned and has his eye on the prize for being good: cheese.

Just one tip, Brenda; don't clip past where you can see the blood inside the nail, or else it will bleed. If you do it by accident (as I did, only once), you can use a styptic pen to staunch it. Also, be careful not to catch the little pink pads in the back of the clippers.

Rudee...I did see something called soft claws on amazon that I was considering. I think those might be good for cats that are difficult to clip.

Kat....Send me all the cat tips you know. I haven't owned a cat since 1977. Things have changed a lot since then. I think declawing cats back then was ..the norm ..for indoor cats. No one was told how painful is was for the cats and how it affected them. Thank goodness we are wiser now!

Glad you found your solution!

Your kitty is so cute, and I am so glad you found a solution as well. My kitties have their claws and it doesn't bother me. I used to clip the dog's nails, and she was very good about it.
