Many cats do not need their claws trimmed. After all, before cat scratching posts were invented there were trees, and now that cat scratching posts exist there are couches. However, if your vet suggests you trim your cat’s claws regularly, you’ll want a pair of clippers that is meant for animals. This efficient design combines small stainless steel blades with a big handle you can grip like a pair of scissors. If this is the first time you’re trimming your cat’s claws, watch a tutorial or two to make sure you don’t cut into sensitive parts of the nail.
