Anyone who has ever clipped a cat’s claws knows all about not cutting into the quick!

I’m pretty good at clipping claws, but one wrong move – on my part or on the cat’s – and you can cut one claw too short and the blood will flow.

And claws can bleed a lot.

It can happen to the best of us. And I swear – I did NOT cut Angel’s claw too short just to take a photo, either…however, you may recall I once cut one of Angel’s claws too short and had to bandage her foot for a few hours.

If you do have a mishap and accidentally cut a claw too short, I found the best styptic gel at CVS of all places – Super Clot!

It not only stops bleeding, but it has a disinfectant and lidocaine to relieve pain. Incredibly handy and the best product I’ve found yet.
