Cat Paw Massage

When you get a kitten or a cat, and they are all mellow near you, reach out and start massaging their feet while talking to them calmly. Get them used to having their paws played with. I've lived with over 40 cats, and each of them like having a paw massage. They will even stretch out their toes!


Then when it's time to trim nails, I spoon hold my cat (their back up against my tummy while sitting). With my arms around them, I have the trimmer ready and show it to them. Then I talk sweet talk to them and play with their toes. They relax and you can go ahead and trim them up, both front and back paws.

Seven cats live with me now and I can do all 28 feet in under 10 minutes. I even used to have a cat come to me to get his nails trimmed, if they got too long. He didn't like 'long stickers'!

That is wonderful! I know a lot of kittens and cats get their toes hurt when the long nails get stuck in something and they jump. That is so sweet! There are lots of acupressure benefits and trust benefits from this too!


Thank you for sharing this and give them all hugs! Thumbs up~!
