Cutting Kitties Nails

I dunno if this has been discussed before (probably has, right)? Well, I always trim my cats nails and have never had a problem-until tonight. While cutting Milo's back nails, he moved and leg and that caused me to move my arm and I accidently cut down to the quick. It bled alittle-like a paper cut and naturally my instinct was to stop the bleeding. He seems to fine.........just upset with me. As long as it's not bleeding anymore, he will be okay, right? Just wanna make sure.

Thanx!

Yup, he'll be ok, as long as it's definitely not bleeding any more. Accidents happen. You may want to add styptic powder to your first aid kit. You'll probably never need it again, but still.....

Cindy, the only "harm" done is that Milo might try to get away when he sees the clippers. You'll have to build trust in him again by being very careful. Our little furry purrers have great memories.

Well usually, I hafta tell Milo way in advance that I'll be clipping his nails and then keep reminding him throughout the day otherwise, he will make all kinds of noise while I'm clipping his nails (I'd imagine it be like him cursing at me and telling me to put him down). But as long S I let him know what's gonna happen next, he's fine with it.

And yes, they sure do have great memories!

You're probably right!

LOL! Yeah, and he seems like the kind of cat who curses all the time....look at this pic below:



My son thought it would be funny to throw the sheets ontop of Milo. Don't he look like he's mad and swearing?

Oh, that is a hilarious pic, such purrsonality.

Hopefully he'll keep to just complaining, and has forgiven (forgotten) it. Definitely tell us if he takes off sprinting next time he sees those clippers!

Will do!

I think he's okay now about me cutting his nails last night. Heck, he even let me look at the nail!

Such purrsonality, indeed!

Somebody once told me, that they would use a "soft" (whatever that means) nail file, to just grind down their cat's claws a bit. That way, there was never a risk of getting the quick, plus they still had enough to scratch themselves and whatever else they needed claws for, without being TOO sharp for the humans.
I haven't tried this yet, even though I'd spend half the time as my cat only has two paws *g*

I may be crazy, but it's kept me from goin' insane...
