Re: Can't Retract A Claw
I don't think any of my cats' rear claws retract fully, the way front claws do, so their tips would always stick out a bit... It could be that you are noticing this one particular claw because it was maybe trimmed 'longer' than the others and it sticks out further? I don't ever clip my cats' nails, they keep them sharpened on various scratchers, though I do have one kitty (Louie) whose front claws are very sharp, long and curved and he has difficulty getting them un-hooked from things he is playing with. I need to figure out a way to clip his front claws...and be safe. Louie is like a chain-saw with razors and he is a former feral who does *not* react well to restraint. I am considering trying to do his feet when he is sleepy/sleeping or asking the husband for assistance, but I don't want to traumatize Lou by forcibly restraining him.
