How I trim my cat's claws at home

  • First of all, I make sure that my cats are used to me holding them in my lap, and are used to me extending their claw by "force". Do so gently, or you can REALLY  hurt them.

  • While getting your cat used to this, gently squeeze the toe pad. If your cat runs away, let them go, and try it again another day. If you have an older cat that isn't used to their feet being touched, it'll take time.

  • When you extend their claw, you can see what is called the quick. DO NOT CUT THIS. they have feeling in it, and if cut, will bleed. Think of cutting too far up on your own nail. You'll cut away from it. just a little bit of the sharp part.

  • I use baby nail clippers. Again, only cut off a small piece and stay away from the quick!

  • always trim your cat's nails in a quite place they know is safe, praise and love on your cat between each nail. When you're all finished, give your cat some treats for being good!

  • If you really need to trim their nails, (if they got caught on something and it broke half way off for example) and they aren't really used to being held but you NEED to do it, you can also try to wrap your cat up on a blanket. Cover their eyes, and it should help relax them.

  • this is how I do it at home. You may have actual animal clippers, but I find that for cats, baby clippers work best. good luck!
