Black Cats Matter

Mom wants to trim my hind claws, hiss!

She has a few scratches on her arms and a leg so she wants my back claws trimmed or at least dulled down. I'm declawed in front and she doesn't want to declaw me in the back so I can take care of my itchy spots, but she's tired of getting scratched (mostly by accident). She's gonna get me the emery cat for starters (she has nobody to help us with trimming unless we go to the vet again). A facebook friend offered to send her emery cat things but is laid up with foot problems and mom can't wait any longer, she's tired of walking around all scratched up!

I really don't like my back feet touched. I growl like a dog if they're touched! This means clippers and other things that require that probably won't work for us. She'd only clip the very end of the sharp tip off to avoid the quick, but I just prefer keeping my paws to myself. I squirm too much for her to hold and clip.

We hope the emery cat works for me too. She knows the local store has them and with their changing to a different name she can't return it so it better work! She's already e-mailed the vet just in case I still need them trimmed, she'd rather hold me than clip me! I love mommy!
