    Hey All,

    Anyone have any tips, secrets? Cohiba(mycat, not me) is a fucking bitch when it comes to it. She squirms so much, I don't want to hurt her!

    Two people and a towel are best. Wrap em in the towel and just bring out one paw at a time.

    And really try not to cut the quick.

    Too late! :lol: She gouged my leg before we even got her in the towel. She knew it was coming. After the second paw all she did was meow in a really low voice like she was bitching at us. Fuckin eh I'm so excited to finally get her. Thanks :bigup:

    Good job :lol:

    My current two cats have no problem with nail cutting. Rudiger was the worst. He'd bite, scratch, claw, scream, whatever to get away. Daisy cried like you were hurting her. She struggled some, but overall I could clip em.

    Tyson is easy as hell as far as nails go. You have to distract Rocky with a bird or something else in order to cut his nails.
