I have Sampson back, and I just trimmed his claws :)

I'm sooooooooooooooooooooooooo excited!! I feel like a real feline Mommy now. It wasn't too hard at all. The other night I took a pair of small scissor's and cut a few. Then tonight I went to the pet store and got a good pair of trimming scissor's, and I cut all of them, even the back ones!!

... and Sampson is so good!! He struggles a little, but I am able to get all of them trimmed, yipeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!! It's actually kind of fun

They were really long too!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Now how often do I have to do this, every other week or so??

I do it once every week to two weeks. Basically whenever I notice their nail are getting sharp.

Good luck with him!

I am glad to hear everything is going well.

I trim their nails about every 10 days. I usually don't trim them all at once. Some nails grow faster than others and some break.

I never trim claws! But then again, I never need too!

I'm really glad Sampson is back home where he belongs

Jazzo, that is great news!! Sampson must be so happy to be where he truly belongs. I am sure you will be very happy together.

But, I have never trimmed my kitties claws before, so I don't know how often you should be doing that.
