need to trim those weapons! I do my kitty's once a month, followed by a treat, and that makes em OK... let us know if you need any info on how to clip the nails, lottsa articles on the net. Just need to cut below what they call "the quick", which is where it gets thicker and will bleed. They might fuss about getting the lower part done, but it doesn't hurt em and will get used to it sooner you start doing it... if you don't, prepare to have scratch marks on you from those pointy pins! :twisted:

Also, if they get used to the clipping as a kitten they will be more accepting of it as they grow up. :wink:

In addition to trimming the weee one's claws, don't encourage tough play with her, if she is attacking your hands or feet or maybe even your face etc, it may seem cute sometimes now, but just wait until she's a full grown cat and doing it then! :shock:

You will have to trim her claws often and it will help, make it a positive experience for her.
If you discourage this type of behavor they will often outgrow it. Good luck!

nutto: With a kitten, just like a puppy or a baby human, you must "child" proof your home, put away or get rid of anything the kitten could possibly hurt herself on, wires, strings, cleaning chemicals, you name it.

She needs to be able to roam through out your house, and not just be penned up all the time, she could develop behavoiral issues otherwise.
