Memo to self..

Wear shoes or slippers when kittens are running around playing. Bare feet is not a good thing. Kitten scratches are not fun.

I bet they are sharp! They don't have to be trimmed that I am aware of, like a dog. Don't you wonder why the difference? Guess I'll have t o read up on cats to find out. Seems like we are always trimming the pups nails.

Sure thankful you know about declawing. Cutting the finger to the joint is what I remember. Best thing to do is try to keep things in the way God put them here. Except during the summer I have to cut the dogs coats due to the heat. One thing can be thankful about cat s don't seem to have as much maintenance as dogs do, you think? Still have to be watered and fed.

And don't move your feet under the covers---there are prey to be stalked and "killed"....

Lady, Actually you can trim the nails. It's just not so easy after they get older unless you start now.

no declawing please. i had one done , as he destroyed dining chairs. his balance was never right after that.

i trimmed my cat thomas's claws, when he was younger. not now. he is not a scratcher. he does have a hugh deal with carpet on it or jute for scratching post. they use it to keep claws in good shape.

he does attack my bare feet anytime he can. ouch is right!
