Trimming Your Cat’s Nails at Home
Why Trim Your Cat’s Nails?
It is important to your cat’s well-being to keep their nails properly trimmed.
How to Trim Your Cat’s Nails
Holding the paw firmly, trim the tip of the nail with a single stroke. Be careful to stop short of the quick, the blood vessel inside the nail. If your cat’s nails are very long, trim a small amount.
Maintaining Your Cat’s Nails
Repeat every 7-10 days until your cat’s nails are at the desired length. Monthly trimming should be sufficient thereafter.

I normally get the ones with the larger gripper-style handles, but the blades never
seem sharp anymore, doing more splintering than cutting. I even bought a new pair
to be sure it was in top shape, and same problems. I decided they must have redesigned
those to work mainly on dogs now.
So, got a pair of these to try.
If you are a man, you probably will have a VERY difficult time using them. These are
very small scissors. I don't have large hands, so I can use them, but none of the guys
can get their fingers in the holes. Ladies, think cuticle scissors, and you'll understand
your working room for your own hands.
You have to be sure to have the screw head facing the cat to cut the right way. It actually
helps to make sure you don't cut too much that way, so it works all right.
It still doesn't make as clean a cut as I'd like to see. In fact, you can hear the crunching of
the nail material when you cut, which has a little "ewww" factor. However, they DO do a better
job of cutting the cat nails than the other styles of pet clippers have done. I do find that I have
to trim a little more often with these, but that's doable. They leave a smoother cut than the other
styles of clippers I've used, but don't expect a perfectly smooth tip. You'd have to use a file for that
still. (I let our cats do their own trim-ups on their scratching posts.) For those who say it is crushing
their cat's nails, be sure that the scissors are held vertically, in the same direction as the toenail is growing out.
Makes sense? Don't make it go crossways, which might indeed crush the nail instead.
The cats don't seem too bothered by these either (at least, any more than any other clipper! One doesn't
care about getting his nails done, but our little girl cat doesn't like anyone messing with her feet for
any reason!), which makes this a plus for these clippers. Since they require a little more dexterity on the
part of whoever is cutting, I do have someone else hold the cats now so I can control the little scissors
I can't vouch for how long they'll stay sharp because I haven't been using them for an extended period of time.
(We've had them for a month, and I trim once a week.)
Overall, for what they are and how they are made, I think they should be cheaper.
But, they do what they advertise - trim your cat's nails without cutting their quick.
UPDATE 11/20/10: We've been using these for a while now, and both cats don't seem to mind too much.
However, it is very weird - they have disappeared! I think the cats must've hid them so I couldn't cut their
nails anymore. That's my theory anyway, and I'm sticking to it until they show back up.
It has done a good job of keeping their nails cut without hurting them or cutting too close to the quick.
These scissor-style clippers are so much faster and they do not crush the nail. I can get in and get my two cats claws so fast they hardly even notice what's going on until it's over.
Highly recommended, except for one thing: The finger holes in the scissors are sized for children. I have small, girlie hands and I still find them difficult to use. If you have big hands, you should probably go with another product.
