Nail clipping or claw trimming is one of the basics of cat care and maintenance. Just as we humans have to clip our own fingernails, cats also require this. Nail clipping for cats are usually done with a pair of cat nail clippers.
Nail Clippers / Nail Trimmers / Nail Cutters can be easily purchased at online pet shops. You can get your’s at Nekojam.com; our sister online pet shop company.
Regular clipping of your cat’s nails can prevents overgrown nails & discomfort. Some cat owners also clip their cat’s nails when they get too sharp in order to prevent any accidental scratches.
Yes, clipping your cat’s nails are very safe for not only the cat but the owner as well when done correctly. Please take note not to clip too much of the cat’s nail. This might cause them to bleed.
The frequency of clipping your cat’s nails really depends on your cat’s age and activity level. For example, when cats age, they usually become a lot less active compared to when they were younger.
When this happens, it is important to Clip their Nails when it gets longer. If the nails are left clipped, they may grow too long and penetrate into their paw pad. This will cause unnecessary pain and in worse cases, an infection.
This is why here at Nekomori, we recommend that you clip your cat’s nails at least once a month.
