|The peeps think I lay with my paw stretched out cos my claws are too long.|
Kittehs, I dodged a bullet. The peeps once again had their finger on the panic button. It seemed that every time they saw me working my claws on my Ultimate Scratching Post, my dew claw got stuck. To dislodge it, I’d pull and pull. TW was scared I’d pull my entire claw out and that wouldn’t be fun for either of us.
No one has been able to trim my claws for almost five years. The last time they were trimmed was when I got the workover in vet jail. My new vet doesn’t want to stress me and cause my asthma to attack me so she’s not going near my claws. Smart move to keep my claws from coming near HER.

As I mentioned, the vet won’t trim them or maybe they’ll have to gas me to do it. Linda said she’d do it but that would require the peeps to give me a sedative before she’ll go near me. What would the consequences of that be? Not good for TW, that’s for sure. During my last appointment, TW axed about the likelihood of my claws growing into the paw pads and Dr. D said that usually only happens to older cats who don’t play or work their claws.
I ignore cardboard scratching posts but TW ordered one for me anyway. Just to be sure I’ll ignore it, she also ordered replacement pads. If I get caught, the cardboard will rip before I can rip my claw out is her thinking. Uh huh. We’ll see how that works out.
Does anyone has advice or tips on trimming my claws or scratching posts for me. The past few days, I’ve been using my Ultimate Scratching Post often and not getting caught which is why I dodged the bullet. The peeps are such worriers.
|Actually, I’m just dreaming of scratching TW.|
Disclosure (just in case): This is not a review. We bought the scratching post a hunnert years ago with our own hard-earned money and I can like it if I want to. BTW, if anyone at Pioneer Pet/SmartCat is reading this, we can use a new one.
