Nibs ~*~Rainbow Bridge~*~

shaving a kitty's nether region?

i know i have been asking alot of questions, but you guys are amazing with the help you give :) now onto my question, Nibs is paralyzed in his back legs and we have to bathe him regularly. when he goes to the vet they groom him and shave him "down below". he seems much happier after they shave him and he is much easier to clean when he needs his diaper changed. we tried shaving him at home but he freaks out too much and we can't shave him. my question is, are there any shavers out there that he won't freak out with? i think its the noise that freaks him out but im not 100% sure. any suggestions would be great!

Bless you for caring so much about this sweet baby. Not everyone would do what you are doing for him. You restore my faith in animal rescue! I did some searching and found what they say are "whisper-quiet" pet clippers. They are Oster "Adjust-a-groom" pet clippers and I found them on for $59.99. Thanks again for being such a good person and animal lover!
