I used to make use of the normal human nail clippers to trim the paw of my cat. It was easy, however clearly not an ideal option, as the nails of my cat is clearly different from my own, and it was quite tough to accomplish a clean cut. I finally got a set of cat nail clippers, and have never ever been sorry for the move.
It took me time to get the nail clippers I enjoy using. I like the scissors-type nail clippers. They are particularly suitable for my cat, who has little nails. I find it helpful to use, and exactly what is important that it is easy to clean. I like the half-moon indentations at the end of the cutter. They allow me to see clearly exactly what I'm cutting before I apply the pressure. In fact, this is exactly what really make the difference. They make the cutting a lot simpler, as I can be more precise about where to cut now. It took me some time to get the nail clippers I such as. I like the scissors-type nail clippers. They particularly well for my cat, who has little nails.
Thinking of it, the few extra dollars spent on getting a set of specialized nail clippers for my cat is really worthwhile. Not only does it make my task much easier, my dear Lucy has seem less unwilling to get her paw cut now!
