Unwanted claw trimming
Mel my little grumpy kitty was recently spayed, and the vet thought she was doing me a favor by trimming her claws. Unfortunantly it's not that simple, my roomate has a rather senile pomeranian named Foxy that terrorizes Mel once or twice a day (every time Foxy forgets Mel has claws, I think..). Mel used to quickly rectify this situation by swatting Foxy on the head with a bit of claw, not too much, just a good prick.. This was an acceptable status quo for all parties.
Well now that Mel doesn't have sharp claws she is forced to hide in my bedroom all the time, as her reprimands to the dog have been rendered inneffective. She's not too happy about that and seems sort of depressed and a bit freaked out about the whole thing. Does anyone have any ideas? Her claws are trimmed pretty short, how long will it take them to grow back to full sharpness? Trying to teach that dog anything at all is inneffective, she's 13 years old and has pretty much lost her mind at this point (but still seems happy)
