Message Subject Adopted 3 Kittens....Cuter than Cute, Holy Terrors and I am going to de-claw them..

All my cats from young I trained to have a "maintenance" mode. I pick them up and put them on their back, cradling them like a baby. Then I grab each and every toe on their paws and tug and pull on them. I then check their ribs, tummy, and lastly I pull back their lips and inspect their teeth. After, they get a treat.

They don't like this at first, but they'll tolerate it. It quickly becomes routine and they don't mind after, usually working up a good purr during the session. Makes trimming the nails a snap.

Get a good trimmer with a guard so you don't cut the nail too close.

The people I know w/cats, use the large, people nail clippers and just nip the sharp ends.

Thats exactly what I do. I snip the ends off so they aren't sharp. That doesn't hurt them as long as you don't clip too far down.
