Cat keeps crying when has her claws cut

by Verena
(beijing, china)


We have a 3 month female cat(not spayed)and whenever it's time to cut her nails she cries like she is in pain. My mom only cuts a little bit of it off. The cat squirms and struggles to get out of my moms arms. Is she in pain, or is it just that she's not comfortable in that position? Any advice of suggestions would be very helpful.

No this sounds to me like normal cat behavior, my cat cries and squirms like mad when we cut their nails.

As long as only the tip of the nail is being cut it is not painful at all. please see this page for some more information about cat nail cutting

best wishes Kate
