More nail trimming

Daddy prepared a lot yesterday to get me out to get my nails trimmed. He closed the door to the bedroom and bathrooms and opened the door to the spare bedroom (where there's no good hiding places). When he came home last night he was ready to block the way to the basement and corral me into the spare bedroom. But what happened is that when I came over for pets I got close enough so he could pick me up and put me in my carrier. We had to wait a loooong time at the pet store. Word got out about the $5 nail trimming and there were lots of dogs there. I hid under my blanket for the first 20 minutes then slowly started to come out once I realized the doggies couldn't get me (but the mini-human was a new experience that I did NOT like). Anyway we had to wait for 45 minutes but it was worth it. I behaved myself pretty well so Daddy kept his promise to take me straight home and not stop for dinner.

I really needed the trim and going there isn't too bad, just a lot of waiting in the carrier.

Boy Pepi I hears ya- Momma tried again last night to cut mine, and I went berserk again. She thinks my paws or legs are painful, cause I will let her brush me, clean my ears or my teeth & I am fine. I have 1 claw that is normal, and she was able to get that one, but all the others are very thick & wide. They won't fit into the scissor cutter. They are getting so long that I am clicking. Momma is taking me to the vet this time to get them cut, cause she wants to ask about my limping (which is worse with my nails now) but, we may try Petco too. How do they treat you? Are they good with very scaredy kittens? I sure hope you got a treatsie or extra pets for having to get your nails cut, cuz it is not fun for us black kitties to get our nails cut. harumph!
