Cat Claw Trimming
Follow the guide below for easy cat claw trimming:
Step 1. Cat’s claws are kept in a sheath inside the toe until they need them. It’s a good idea to get your kitty used to having its feet handled.
Step 2. To expose the claw, hold the paw (supporting it firmly on the bottom). Then, with each toe, press firmly and push forward slightly. The claw will extend. Hold it in that position.
Step 3. Now look at the nail. The vein (quick) will be pink and the rest of the nail clear. The clear part can go. Slip the claw into your clippers stopping just below the quick. Snip and you’re done.
Step 4. It’s better to be too far out than too close since you can always go back and snip a little more.
Step 5. Support the paw, extend the claw, locate the vein, slide claw into clipper and snip! It’s the same for each toe.
Step 6. There .. claws trimmed! Kitty and furniture all safe. So now, make it an enjoyable time by giving your kitty a treat and lots of praise.
