Should You Trim Your Cat’s Nails?

Felines are animals that are well-armed. They have quick reflexes and sharp teeth. They are agile and flexible.  Also, those cat nails or cat claws could inflict havoc on sofas, drapes, carpet, perceived predators, prey animals, and individuals that they do not really like. So, can you make your cat to stop scratching? Well, here are some things that you should really know:

  • Reason that you must trim the nails of your cat

Of course, every cat owner knows that sharp cat claws wreak more damage than ones that are trimmed. Your drapes, carpet, and sofa would gain a lot of benefits. Apparently, “sharpening” the nails is an ordinary expression of cat behavior. Also, it should not and it cannot be suppressed by us. That is the main reasons why every cat owner must have scratching posts.

  • The Anatomy of Cat Nails

Almost every cat has 18 nails (4 on each back foot and 5 on each front foot). But, a disorder termed polydactyly – a condition which felines have extra digits – is pretty popular. Get to know the paw of your cat, and know where you could find the nails. Count every nails in each foot. Keep in mind that the nails of the cat also retract naturally while at rest. They could be protracted for trimming by putting gentle and immediate pressure on the bottom and top of every toe. You could watch some videos on the internet so you could practice and get good at it.
