What happens if you don’t trim cat claws?

The claws grow longer and longer, eventually becoming long enough to get snagged on furniture — or on you. Ouch.

For some cats, things get much worse. I’ve seen cats with claws embedded in their paw pads. It happens more often than you’d think. The most common scenario is an old cat living with an old person.  The owner loves her cat but due to poor eyesight, doesn’t see the disaster that has befallen her cat.

I groom cats in your own home. I do everthing needed for a soft, clean cat. Claw trims to prevent painful scratches and damaged furniture. Brushing to prevent furballs and matting. Rear-end trims to keep things clean after the litter box visit. Baths for soft, shiny fur. Clients praise my calm, gentle yet firm attitude. Cat sitting visits last 1/2 hour. Daily photo, fresh food and water, playtime, cuddles. A true "cat nanny".
