The Purrfect Pawdicure...

Well I knew it couldn't last forever... My claws were all lovely and long and as sharp as needles, I could dig them into anything (mostly Mummy's legs when getting myself comfy) but they got the chop... :( Mummy says I now have nice pawdicured claws and I must say I'm being welcomed on her lap a LOT more often and she's stopped squealing when I pummel and knead her legs into shape! :) But it's still traumatic having your claws clipped, but I put up a good fight as usual - unlike Tigmut'hep who just sits there and lets Mummy give him a pawdicure without so much as squerming! I'm sure that sort of behaviour can't be natural! ;)

Anyway they're done now and I've had a good handful of bikkies as a treat for not being too naughty about it all. Oh and I got to snuggle with Mummy lots afterwards too! :)

Ouuuuuuuuch that sounds painful and tricky!! My mum lets me have all my claws but I am a good girl and don't scratch or bite (except the couch but it keeps attacking me).

My name is poppy and I would love you to come and visit my blog.

You have pink paws-y pads, just like me! :)

I hate get my nails clipped too. I get so mad whenever they do that to me!

You are a gentle cat. I never have my nails clipped. I don't like it, but I try not to scratch people. I have a lot of posts to scratch though and sometimes when I go for a walk I can claw some trees.

I prefer to let my clawrs get long and sharp too. But then my Mommie does not like when I knead on her with my sharp clawrs.

You're such a good boy about getting your claws clipped, Ramses! LOL, calling it a pawdicure makes claw clipping sound almost fun (well, almost) *smile*.

Purrs and snuggles from Marilyn.

You have very nice paws, Ramses! I get my claws trimmed about twice a week, because they grow quickly! Since I'm a Sphynx, I have a fast metabolism, and so my claws grow quickly.

Oh boy am I ever glad I don't need a pawdicure more often! Thanks for all the words of support, it's nice to know I'm not the only kitty who had to suffer this for the sake of not poking holes in Mummy! ;) She gets all upset when she leaks red stuff...

It's so nice to have lots of lovely fuuriends to talk to about this stuff that humans just don't understand, like this! :)

Oh and Marie, I just love all your pretty pink bits! ;) PURRRR!!! :)
