How and when to cut cat's nails?




We all know how hard it is to do specific tasks with cats, I mean who do we want to cheat? They're beautiful animals but it's also true that they have strong character and we could get hurt if they refuse to participate in our activities as petparents...

Cutting cat's nails is one of these difficult tasks and there are some things you should know before you start doing it.


First of all, it's very important to identify your cat's mood in case you want to succesfuly cut your baby's nails without getting hurt, what does this mean? Well it's simple, just try to get them when they're sleepy, such as after a meal; so they won't be alert and agil with their paws. This is just about psycology and we know moms are the best at this...


Another tip to follow is that you want to make friends with your baby's paws. This sounds silly but it's one of the best tricks to get this task done.

Start by pampering your cat before you start cutting its nails, then carefully hold one paw between your fingers and rub it gently for two to three seconds... If your baby moves, gently follow its gesture, and when you feel ready, you can cut its nails.


And our final tip is: GET ACQUAINTED WITH THE CLIPPER!! Let your cat to explore this object, to smell it, to play with it if it's necessary, this way they won't feel it as a threat and it'd be much easier for you to get the job done!
