Maybe because they're former strays, my cats scratch me if I try to trim their nails (or even manipulate their paws). Anyone here any tips for similar situation? I've tried all the usual advice, but that doesn't work with these cats. Especially one of them keeps getting her claws stuck in things and she can't play well because of it. She's indoor-only. Taking her somewhere is not only expensive, but she won't go into the carrier. She's otherwise very affectionate and sleeps with me cheek-to-cheek, arms around mine.
