With so many ‘House Cats’ now, clipping of claws has become popular.  Indoor cat’s do not need their nails, but outdoor cats do!  I do not recommend the cutting of claws on young or still active outdoor cats.

As the cat gets older and much less energetic it is wise to clip the claws, as

they can grow round into the pads and cause much discomfort and sometimes infections

If I am called in to just cut the cat’s nails, the charge will then be £40! It is not always apropriate to cut the nails, cats’ need them to protect themselves against other cats and to grip when they jump from one height to another.

Old cats need their nails clipped regularly, if not they will grow round into the pad of the paw, and could cause an infection.  House cats also need their claws cut more often. Rabbits nails are easier to cut than cat’s nails.

  • Dear Katherine, Many thanks for your kindness, advice and expertise when grooming Sami on Friday. I have taken your sound advice regarding the raw rabbit diet and have sent for a sample/ taster pack to see how my cats get on with it. A comb is on order, which along with a more relaxed approach and your tips on technique will make grooming a more pleasant experience for Sami and Cocoa. Thank you again. .

  • Hi Katherine,

    I just wanted to drop you a quick line to say thank you. You visited our home for the first time yesterday and it was a pleasure to meet you. Your cat knowledge is truly extensive and your advice invaluable. It is obvious you genuinely ‘care’ about the welfare of the animals you visit.

    I feel the mobile service you offer to clients is fantastic. Our feisty 7 year old Maine Coone, was like a little lamb in your arms! Totally amazing. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending your services and look forward to seeing you again later in the year.

  • Hi Katherine,

    Thank you so much for clipping all those nasty mats from Pebbles. She is a really timid rescue cat but you managed to keep her, and me, as calm as was possible in the situation.

    She is racing around the garden very happily now that she can move freely.

    I am going to add your website on my facebook page to recommend you to anyone else whose cat has a problem.

    Thank you also for the advice re feeding fresh food and food without additives. I will be ordering some today.

    I wish I had found you years ago! Many thanks

    Keiran and Pebbles
