Cat Nail Care Tips

Cat nails can be very sharp, as you know. We can trim their front and back claws for you to reduce incidences of scratching and damage.

Claws are an important part of a cat’s anatomy and we do not recommend de-clawing. Cats shed their nails and utilize their pads and scratching behavior to “mark” their territory.

Providing scratching posts and learning how to train them are very important for your cat’s health.

Please read about declawing before you think about having this surgery done—it is outlawed in 25 countries and is considered to be cruel. It only costs $15 for a nail trim at our shop. We will be happy to show you how to trim your cat’s nails—it can be very simple!
