Trimming tiny kitten nails! | How to cut claws on a young kitten, Part 1

Clipping tiny kitten nails is no joke! Here we trim our foster kitten Marsha’s sharp claws. She’s very patient 🙂 Hit that Thumbs-Up if you enjoyed the video, and subscribe for more!

Part 3: Peanut

There are a number of tricks you can employ to make it easier to trim those pointy little kitty claws. Cat claws are an important part being a cat for physiological and emotional reasons, and it’s vital to keep your cats claws intact! Starting your kittens on a clipping regiment when they are young will make clipping your cat’s nails an easy and enjoyable process throughout their life with you.

When kittens are small, their nails are small and extra pointy, so we like to clip them partly to keep them from sticking to clothing and furniture (and skin! ouch!) like velcro! It’s also super helpful for getting them use to the process so that you can handle their paws and claws when they’re older and have them enjoy the attention rather than be worried about why on earth the silly humans are touching their paws 🙂

We’ve clipped kittens as young as 4-5 weeks. Kittens younger than that are SO tiny, and their nails are SO small, and when they’re much younger they can’t even retract their claws yet.

First, it helps to have a kitten who’s familiar with you and used to being touched, especially on their paws. So if you have a kitten and you plan to cut his nails (which I definitely recommend! Do NOT declaw your sweet furbaby!), the while you’re cuddling him, give his little toe-beans a gentle squeeze and practice extending his claws. That way, he’ll be used to it when it comes time to give them a snip.

If you’re not sure how your kitty is going to react, or if he’s in an especially energetic mood, it can help a lot to wrap them gently in a towel (I discuss that in this trimming video, and I show it in several others), and just pull out the one paw at a time. Then, extend their little claws, just like you practiced, and clip away! I always take off JUST THE TIP when clipping kitten and cat nails, because I want it to be an enjoyable experience for everyone involved. And the more they enjoy it, the less the mind doing it more frequently anyway – so each kitten pedicure session goes faster!

I hope you find this video about trimming your kitten’s claws helpful, and I hope you have a great experience clipping your kitten’s nails! It can be intimidating at first but once you get the hang of it, you’ll never think twice about giving their claws a quick cut.

Please let me know if you have any questions about trimming kitten nails, and leave a comment if you have any questions or funny stories about your kitties!

How to Get Along Better with Your Cat – 10 TIPS

Do you want to know how to get along better with your cat? There are many things we do which annoy our cat and can lead to us not getting along as well as we should. We may even think the things we do are something the cat might enjoy, but often we are misinterpreting their body language and methods of communication. Knowing what our cat is trying to say to us will help us as cat owners to strengthen our bond with our felines. This means taking care during all parts of a cat’s routine and ensuring we don’t behave in a way which puts distance between us. As a companion to this AnimalWised video on how to strengthen the bond we have with our cat, you can take a look at this article on feline body language:

Why Cats Lie on Their Backs When They See You

While cats have been domesticated pets since the days of Cleopatra, there’s still a lot about them that remains a mystery. Like when they just roll over as you approach them, what’s up with that? Actually, when cats lie on their back and expose their bellies, it’s their way of saying “Hello, human!”! But it’s not the only message a cat sends when it shows you its cute furry little belly.

Today we’re talking about cat behaviors. Why do they expose their belly? Why do they bring you dead animals? Why do they like watching from afar? There are plenty of other things they do that just have you scratching your head in confusion. Let’s figure out together!

– Be careful not to invade your cat’s space unless you know they love belly rubs and like to be touched. Look for other clues like their ears and tail. If their tail is moving back and forth and their ears are set back, this means they’d rather be left alone.
– When a cat weaves through your legs and rubs its head on you, it’s called bunting, and it involves a release of pheromones from a cat’s head. Basically, it’s as if they’re leaving their scent on you to make sure other cats know that you belong to them.
– Have you ever been snuggling with your kitty when they start pressing their little paws into you over and over again? When cats do this sort of bread-kneading motion, it’s actually leftover from their kitten days when they used to nurse.
– Has your cat ever made prolonged eye contact with you while blinking really slowly every few seconds? It’s awkward, I know! But this is actually a way for your cat to show you affection!
– If you find that your cat is watching you from afar but never wants to engage, this could be a sign that they’re anxious or even mad at you.
– Similar to how a dog urinates on things to mark their territory (which cats can do too sometimes, by the way), cats like to scratch furniture to show others what’s theirs.
– If your cat’s teeth are chattering really fast, it doesn’t mean they have the chills. It’s actually related to a natural instinct to hunt.
– Many animal behaviorists believe that your cat shares a successful kill with you as a way of thanking you for your care. Cats also do this in hopes that you’ll see how good they are, and you’ll pay more attention to them!
– Cats seem to love squeezing into small spaces, even though it often looks terribly uncomfortable. They do this because it helps them feel protected and safe.
– Many house cats hold in a lot of energy during the day and since they have nocturnal instincts, they often go nuts in the middle of the night.
