Aby-a-Day – March 4: “Nailed It” (Cartoon Tuesday)

For the record, I have not had to towel a cat to clip their claws since my crazy black-and-white cat Pezza that I had in high school. He was a former stray and he was not what you’d call a people cat. It took me and my dad and a pair of gloves and a towel to clip his claws, and the vet was on high alert when he needed treatment.


That being said, when I clip claws in our house, Kylie and Tessie yowl, squirm, and try to bite me while Jake and Angel – yes, Angel – sit quietly while I clip and even seem to enjoy it.

  1. Boodie is our resident “spa girl.” I don’t have an issue with it, but it’s not one of my favorite pastimes either. Binga – my human tries to catch her while she’s sleepy to cut down on the protesting.


  2. I’m no good at clipping Wren’s nails. I need to learn. In Wren’s chart from our vet up North, there was a note that read, “Flight risk: once she gets away from you, very difficult to catch!”


    1. It’s easy – even Angel, who never had her claws clipped til I got her when she was over a year old. It’s still funny that Kylie and Tessie, who have been getting clipped since they were tiny, are hard to do than Angel!
