I thought I would get it done while they are all in one place :lol: I.e. The living room

It all went rather smoothly I have no new scratches or bites :D

You are much braver than me, first thing on my job list for tomorrow is to ring the vets and book her in to have her nails trimmed at the end of the week.

MrsMcarey and Funny Bunny, you're welcome here anytime! Managed one out of 2 yesterday. Even got in a good grooming, then gave her a lovely nose rub and massage to make up for it. Was rewarded by a protest pee on my bed while I slept :( Have put off the extra laundry until next weekend as far as clipping Mr B!

Oh lovely :shock: Stu did get away from me and start digging on the couch but I soon had him back under control finished and back in the pen where he popped in the litter tray and had a nice pee :D

I have been sleeping on the couch so my duvet is still there and when he was little and a house bun on the couch for cuddles which he still loves he would start to dig and then pee so I know the signs :lol:

I think I'm getting quite quick at the nail clipping, but it's definitely a two person job in our household. My partner holds them and I clip but I'm not too great on length yet. Both have dark nails so I'm cautious about cutting down too far. Bob bun hates traveling so I'm loath to take him to the vets just to get his nails done. I have the utmost admiration for all you expert nail clippers.

Yes dark nails are difficult :? Befor cutting get a small torch and shine thru the nail and you can see how far to go :thumb:

I have 2 white buns 1 grey (dark nails) and a Dutch TriColour her nails are quite pale as she has white feet :D

I'll give that a go. :) They'll soon need another trim - I swear the more often I trim the faster they grow.

Haha nice one!! I can only clip
Three of clovers paws myself then I have to get someone to hold her down to get the last one and dew claws as she's too squirmy and hates getting her nails done but loves the cuddles after. Poppy I have no chance with and need to get the vet to do it. Even the vet struggles [emoji23]
