Pet Tip: How to Safely Trim Your Cat's Claws

Posted: Updated:
MISSOULA -

Maintaining the health of your feline includes the trimming of your cat's claws.

The Humane Society of Western Montana condones the use of nail de-clawing. De-clawing is the actual decision of the fingers and toes.

Trainer Jean Big gins said de-clawing may cause one in three cats to have a change in behavior, including aggression.

She recommended the use of nail trimming, cat scratchers or a product called Soft Paws.

In this Pet Tip, Jean shows on Elizabeth, a three-year-old feline, how to trim your cats nails without causing her to 'meow.'

If you want more information on trimming your cat's claws, or you are looking to give Elizabeth a furr-ever home, head to the Humane Society of Western Montana in Missoula.
