It's a dark and rainy day today.
(my oldest grandittle at two sipping pretend tea. :)
"There are no cat-treats in this cupboard. " :-(
If you are knee-deep in snow, I expect you, too, are craving the look of flowers.
I picked this little violet up to add to my group that refuse to bloom for me right now.
I'll give her a good home and I need this today.
I'm done with winter.
I have been owned by cats all my life and I have come to the conclusion that in order to be able to trim kitty nails you have to make it a daily habit to play with their paws. When I trim my cat's nails I only take the sharp tip of the nail off. I am very quick but very careful, which comes from experience, and can have three nails done before they even realize what's happening. Then if they begin to move I just speak calmly to them and get their attention on me as I snip a few more tips. If the cat becomes stressed I stop and pick up where I left off the next day. I never have to and never will hold the cat down against it's will. There is no law saying all the nails must be trimmed at the same time. Pushing the limit will only enhance kitties fear and may even break the bond you have worked hard to form.
Stay warm, my friends.
