Our kitty, Sherkan, is 21 and doesn't get around much outside. As a result, her claws just keep growing. We finally had to take her to the vet to be clipped and a couple of times they were able to do it, in spite of her protests. The third time, though, they put some kind of weird helmet on her (honestly, it looked like something out of an old dungeon movie) and she went out of her mind. We stopped the process and thought we would try and clip them at home. Well, we can clip some of them, but there are the big thick ones on her front paws and she just won't let us do it. So, today I am taking her back in to the vet to get them clipped and am dreading it.
Does anyone have any tricks for doing this? We have the clip for her neck to make her think her mommie is holding on to her. I've tried holding her scruff of her neck. This just isn't enough control. We could wrap her in a towel but she still has free roaming teeth. We have those little cat nail clippers, too. I'm about ready to give her a bunch of catnip. I thought maybe someone might have suggestions to make it less traumatic for her, or some way to get her to cooperate. We need help!
