Cats are usually sweet, loving, and affectionate animals – except when they don’t want to be. That usually happens when you try to make a cat do something it doesn’t want to do like take a bath or get its nails trimmed.

Since nail trimming can be as dangerous as trying to handle a whirling chainsaw, it’s best to take precautions to protect yourself and your cat. One technique might be to wrap your cat in a blanket like a burrito. Another is to let your local vet do the dangerous work. Whatever method you choose, make sure you keep yourself safe and get your cat’s nails trimmed.
