I received both praise and criticism for my post about why I declawed my first cat Susannah. The majority of comments were understanding and appreciated my honestly of why I declawed my cat and how much I have learned since then.
Thankfully, I now know how critically vital cats’ claws are to their well-being. I don’t have to worry about my furniture getting torn up because I provide my cats with a variety of scratching posts.
Keeping cats’ claws trimmed helps prevent accidental scratches and snags especially on blankets and bedding.
Why trim your cats’ claws?
- indoor cats don’t have the chance to wear down those sharp claws like outdoor cats do from roaming and climbing many different surfaces
- to prevent scratches from playing and handling your cat
- to prevent accidental scratches and snags on bedding and fabrics.
The Zen clipper is an easy and safe way to trim your pet’s nails. You insert the nail into a small funnel and it cuts just the tip and avoids the quick. The guillotine cutter allows you to quickly cut just the tip of the nail.
Zen Clipper has a patent-pending conical blade that only allows the tip of the pet’s nail into the cutting area, it’s like putting the tip of the nail into a small funnel. You clip just the tip and avoid the quick.
It comes in 7 different sizes and cuts nails from small birds to large dogs. I have size #2 which is the size for average size cats.
Zen Clipper Size #1 – 1.5mm hole. This size is for smaller birds, smaller reptiles and kittens. It will cut off the tip of a sharpened pencil.
Zen Clipper Size #2 – 2mm hole. The medium is for most adult cats.
Zen Clipper Size #3 2.5mm hole. This is for larger cats, larger birds and very small dogs.
Zen Clipper Size #4 3mm hole. For small dogs.
Zen Clipper Size #5 3.5mm hole. For small dogs.
Zen Clipper Size #6 4mm hole. For small dogs.
Zen Clipper Size #7 5mm hole. For medium to larger dogs.
