How to Trim Your Cat's Nails Painlessly

We don't know who endures more during the nail cutting difficulty - you or your feline. In any case, it doesn't need to be that way! 

While a few (weirdo) felines wouldn't fret the intermittent nail treatment, most felines will not sit still and be acceptable patients. Simultaneously, many feline guardians flinch at cutting their feline's nails since they're not exactly sure how to do it. 

Never fear to harm your feline - or confronting the anger of Fluffy's hooks - again. Here are how to best trim your feline's nails. 


First of all. Before you even get your savage hide ball and endeavor to take care of business, you have to set the phase with the correct devices. 

  • Feline Nail Clippers - You needn't bother with anything extravagant. We prefer these straightforward feline hook scissors. The adjusted edge encourages you to apply even weight over the whole top piece of the nail, which is progressively agreeable for your feline, and the slim head lets you see your feline's little hooks. 
  • Treats - This is the most significant piece of the procedure. Ensure you have a pleasant stockpile of your feline's preferred treats. On the off chance that they come in sticks or bigger parts, break them into little, reduced down bits before beginning. 

That is it! 

Stunts and Treats 

It'll set aside some effort to get your feline used to her twice-month to month nail treatments, however, once she's OK with the apparatuses and the procedure, it'll become a lot simpler and quicker everyday practice. 

If your feline has never had her nails cut, you might need to slide into it. Here are a couple of stunts for getting your feline into a glad state of mind before beginning a nail trim. 

Do at least one of these every day for seven days before really cutting your feline's nails. 

  • Acquaint your feline with the nail scissors without cutting her nails. At the point when your feline is alert and loose (i.e., leaned back on the floor or a most loved spot, glancing out the window, and so forth.), but the nail scissors before her and spot a treat on the end. Permit your feline to sniff the scissors and appreciate the treat. This will assist her with partner charming sensations with the nail scissors. 
  • Get your feline used to you holding her paw. Hold your feline's paw and tenderly back rub the stack of her feet while offering her a treat. Most felines don't prefer to have their feet contacted, so this may set aside some effort for her to become accustomed to. If she pulls away, tenderly follows her development for a couple of moments, at that point let go on the off chance that she keeps on pulling back. Be certain not to hang on too firmly or rebuff her in any capacity for pulling back. 
  • Become accustomed to broadening your feline's nails. Felines have an instrument in their paws that permits them to fold or expand their nails. Work on kneading your feline's paw to expand her nails, all while offering treats. This will make her progressively alright with the sensation and will improve you at expanding the paw rapidly for a quick nail trim. 
  • Locate the snappy. The fast is the pink part inside your feline's nail. This is the place all the veins and nerve endings are. You unquestionably would prefer not to cut this piece of your feline's nails or you'll hear a cry that will send shudders down your spine. While you're kneading your feline's paw and working on expanding her nails (and offering treats, obviously), search for the fast. It might be longer or shorter on various nails. 
  • Acquaint your feline with the sound the nail scissors make. The ASPCA suggests holding a bit of uncooked spaghetti in the nail scissors and cutting the spaghetti while your feline appreciates a treat. The sound can be frightening to certain felines from the start, so breaking the ice with some uplifting feedback can go far. 

When your feline is very much familiar with these periods of the nail cutting procedure, you're prepared to proceed onward to the deed itself. 

A Pretty Paw 

Hold your feline on your lap or spot her on an agreeable surface at midsection stature for you. This could be the rear of your love seat, a kitchen counter, or anyplace you believe you and your feline will both be agreeable for the following five minutes. When she's in position, offer a treat. 

Start offering your feline a treat after each progression right now. To forestall gorging, ensure your feline's treats are cut into little pieces. 

With your feline's back against your chest, hold your feline's paw in one hand and expand her nails. Give her a treat with your other hand. At that point delicately trim a couple of nails while she bites her treat, being mindful so as not to cut the speedy. You just need to take the sharp tip of the nail off, which is normally ¼-inch or less. 

Try not to surge yourself. You can generally break your nail treatment into two meetings - left paw currently, right paw later. It's smarter to require some investment, cut the nail neatly in the best possible spot, and give Fluffy a lot of adoration and rewards entirely through. 

Keep trading treats for trims until your feline's paws are splendidly demure. 

In time, this will end up being a fast and simple procedure for you and a modestly charming one for your feline, contingent upon the nature of treats you bring to the table.
