Yes, You Can Trim Your Cat’s Claws

Trim your cat's claws

Nice kitty!

I am asked quite a bit about how to trim cat’s claws.  The trick is developing enough trust between you and your cat and respecting the cat’s comfort level.  Here are a couple of good videos that will help you get accustomed to the method and show you that it is possible to clip your cat’s claws at home.

Please be careful and if your cat is upset only continue trim until it is safe for both of you.  One of my cats requires at least four to five sessions to get all of his claws clipped.  Using a proper claw clipper will make this task a lot easier to accomplish.  Also, you may want to ask a friend to help you to wrap your cat in a towel and expose one paw at a time. This will help you keep the cat comfortable and you scratch free.

While this video is cute, please be careful and don’t allow your cat to flail around and possibly scratch your face.  This video made me nervous, because I kept thinking that the cat was going to reach up and scratch his person’s face.  Better safe than sorry when it comes to cat’s claws!
