We often get enquiries like “how can I get my cat to stay still long enough to get their nails clipped?” Cats rarely stay still when you want them to, but always refuses to budge when you need them to (flashback to the time when you need to get some work done on your laptop and your cat plops onto your keyboard and refuses to move). The trick to getting them to stay still during nail clipping sessions is to get them used to having their paws handled and touched by you. Gently squeeze your cat’s paws during play time or when you’re brushing her fur to get her used to it. Consistency is key! 🐾

Chubby has the most gorgeous pair of eyes! 😍 Did you know that cats with two different colored eyes are usually white or have some white areas on their bodies? The white spotting gene, which is responsible for the colour of their coat, is also the same gene that makes the colour of their eyes the way they are! . . . #catbath #catgrooming #catsofinstagram #catstagram #instacat #meow #catsagram #instagramcats #catsofig #cutecats #fluffycatsofinstagram #weeklyfluff #dailyfluff
Nail clipping or claw trimming is one of the basics of cat care and maintenance. Just as humans have to clip our fingernails, cats also require this. Nail clipping for cats are usually done with a pair of cat nail clippers.
Nail clippers, nail trimmers or 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 safe for not only the cat but the owner as well when done correctly. The most important thing to take note of when clipping your cat’s nails, is to be sure not to clip into your cat’s nail quick as this might cause them to bleed.
The frequency of clipping your cat’s nails 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.
We recommend that you clip your cat’s nails at least once a month.
Some cats are not comfortable with having their nails clipped for reasons such as an owner’s improper technique or lack of experience. If this is the case for you, you can consider having your cat’s nails clipped at the Nekomori Cat Grooming Salon by our Artisans.
Our cat Artisans are experienced in clipping your cat’s nails in a quick and safe manner to minimise discomfort for your cat.
