and all for nothing. See it was way past time to trim our nails and I was sucha BEAR last time mom tried to do it without the help of a vet tech. Mom and dad did all the other kitties nails and there was not problems but her tummy was turning when it was time to do mine. Dad said "maybe wrap him in a towel" "or take him to the vet" well mom said "no" that would just have totally stressed me out and mom does not want to do that.
So she gently picked me up and took me to the bathroom counter and dad followed her in there, I was so good as she loved me and the held my paw with the nail exposed out to dad I PURRED while he took of just the tiny tips of my nails (they will have to do this again soon)
Since I was the last kitty to get trimmed, well we went from the bathroom to mom's bed and we were all hand fed some TREATS! Yes we got to eat in mom's bed. Maybe I will be really good next time they wanna do this. BTW all the other kitties they were really good too but mom kinda knew they would be it was me she was not sure about cause last time her and her friend tried this well I left my mark on her friends neck. But see here's the thing I love time alone with mom an dad.
SO how goes the nail trimming time at your house or do you just do your own like we were doing before tonight?
Me & mama sits ina baffroom floor (er the balcony if is nice). Mama give me a treat, then she cut a nail er 2. Then we does it 'gain. Mama say I's a really good boy.
Oh Novi that sure sounds like a nice way to get a dirty job done, those treat an moma lovies sure make a difference.
I don't mind having mine trimmed at all. Maurice can sometimes be good about it, but sometimes get a little stinky. And Charlie is impossible - he has to be wrapped in a towel everytime.
My dad holds me on his lap ( I mean I jump on his lap ! ) and he holds the nail clippers near me every once in awhile so that I get used to them becoming ordinary and I chew on them and after awhile he tries to clip a nail but I just wanna play so it is not working for him!
Often he takes me to the groomer to be clipped. They sure do it fast; why can't my dad?
Love Tyson xo
Hey my grand furiend, my twin look a like pawsome dood, TINISTER!! MOL, ya wanna really know's 'bout me gettin' my nails trimmed?

Basically. I went to da vet tech last time coz mommy didn't want to stress any o' us out here. I wuz good 'n dey did it wif mommy rite dere wif me 'n dey did it fast, coz well, mom don't haz anyone to halps her out. but ya know? We r good kitties, we r~ Mom might jus' try 'gain fur me, but MALLEE cannot be in da room wif me! I go bonkers! Not shur why but I don't like her watchin' me!! Shrugs!!
Nail trimming at our house is a nightmare, and I'm the baddest dream you'll ever have.
*giggles at Monster's response* No vet wants mom to bring me in for anything.... I will bite them if they dare to touch one piece of fur on me! I will bite AND shred anyone who thinks that they can clip my daggers, including mom! Mol! Now Chico? He practically carries the clippers over to mom! Go figure!
Us kitties are all fine with it. The girl dog is fine with it. The boy dog is not. You know, he's smaller than all but one of us cats, yet can he make the biggest racket?!?!? We usually all come gather to watch the train wreck as it happens--you can't help but look. He sounds like mom and dad are killing him, which, we know they are not or we would step in and help. But mom looks really funny when it's time to trim his nails, she wears a winter coat and winter gloves...she calls it "getting ready for combat." Then her job is to keep dad safe while dad comes in with the clippers. Geesh--the stress that little doggie puts himself though--he should get a hint from the rest of us!
hey every kitty so good to hear from "yall" wow we have missed playing with our friends!
Monster you sound like what mom thought I was gonna be MOL
so strange how some of us kitties are all ok with it and others not so much and others NOT AT ALL. and then MIlo my friend changed his mind about the nail trimming when he little sister showed up. but we all go our on mind and our own catsonalitity
Meowmy has always done the nail trimming herself...not always the easiest job, but each kitty has been different about it...I, Pipo, growl at her, but I let her do so many then I start to pull away, just as the clipper gets near the nail, MOL!
Sometimes we need 2 sessions...
Minko on the other had, bites, no warning...but over the years he will let meowmy do this job, she just has to convince Minko that he wants it done...MOL!
mol Pipo you and Minko sound like a real handfull for your mom too. Mom can do all the other kitties by herself cept me.
