I was just wondering what other people do, since I trimmed Olive's back nails today (she came to us front declawed) for only the second time since we got her 10 months ago. Both times I went ahead and trimmed them because they were getting stuck on my clothing and otherwise hurting me, lol. She was NOT happy about it today, but I was getting fed up with being accidentally impaled by her.
This also led me to wonder, do cats' quicks grow longer as they go untrimmed like dogs' nails? I'd imagine not since they are retractable, and because I haven't noticed much difference in the size of her quicks from the last time I trimmed them. Oh, and what do you guys that do trim them, use to trim them? I've just been using human toenail clippers.
