I trim my dog's nails myself (and they're black), so cat's claws shouldn't be a problem. However, my mom says that if we trim their claws, they're gonna go nuts trying to sharpen them and will end up clawing everything in the house. Has anyone ever had that problem when clipping cats' claws.Jessica said:It's very common for older cats not to be able to retract their claws. It's perfectly normal but they run the risk of getting their claws stuck in things so if you can trim their nails that would help prevent that. If you can't trim them yourself bring them to a groomer or a vet and they'll gladly help you out.
