Time for My Manicure and Pedicure
Nail trimming is a good idea if you want to avoid those occasional scratches. Trimming nails also helps reduce tearing, splitting and infections in overgrown claws. You can purchase specialized clippers from pet stores to clip the nails. You need to observe the nails carefully, you will find a pink patch running through the nail. This patch indicates the nerve endings of the cat. You need to avoid these pink patches and cut the nail half way between the pink and where the nail ends at a point. If you cut off the nerve endings you will hurt your cat leading to bleeding, pain and possible infection.
