Cat Nail Care Supplies FAQs

Why is it important to trim my cat's nails?

Trimming your cat's nails is important for their health and safety. Overgrown nails can cause discomfort and pain and lead to infection or injury if caught on something. Keeping your cat's nails trimmed can protect you and your belongings from scratches and damage.

How often should I trim my cat's nails?

The frequency of nail trimming depends on your cat's activity level and the rate of nail growth. Some cats may need to have their nails trimmed every two to three weeks, while others may only need it once a month. Monitor your cat's nails regularly and trim them as needed.

What type of nail trimmer should I use for my cat?

Several types of nail trimmers are available for cats, including scissor-style, guillotine-style, and grinder-style trimmers. The best trimmer type depends on your preference and your cat's behaviour. It's important to choose a sharp trimmer designed for cats to avoid splitting or crushing the nail.

Can I use human nail clippers to trim my cat's nails?

Using human nail clippers on your cat's nails is not recommended as they are not designed for this purpose and can cause injury or discomfort to your cat. It's best to use a trimmer specifically designed for cats.

How do I get my cat comfortable with having their nails trimmed?

Getting your cat comfortable with nail trimming requires patience and positive reinforcement. Start by getting your cat used to having their paws handled and gently touching their nails. Reward your cat with treats and praise during the process. Gradually introduce the trimmer and use it to trim just the tips of the nails at first, then gradually work up to trimming more.

What should I do if I accidentally cut my cat's nails too short?

Accidentally cutting your cat's nails too short can be painful and cause bleeding. If this happens, apply a small amount of styptic powder or cornstarch to the nail to stop the bleeding. You can also use a clean cloth or tissue to apply pressure to the nail until the bleeding stops.

Cat Nail Care

There are plenty of tools available to keep your cat’s claws in good condition—it’s just a matter of finding the right one. We recommend avoiding the declawing procedure in favour of regular nail trimming to avoid unnecessary surgical amputation. After all, it’s a good chance to bond with your kitty!

Our simplest and most popular choice for cat nail care are the Baxter & Bella Nail Scissors for Cats. Suitable for cats of all sizes, these scissors have an easy-grip handle for you and are sure to make your nail trimming as easy as possible. 

When trimming your cat’s claws, be sure to snip off only the sharp tip of the nail. Cats (and dogs) have a pink part of their inner nail called the quick, which contains all of the nerves and blood vessels. Be very careful not to cut the quick, as it may cause bleeding and discomfort for the kitty. You can typically spot the quick with lighter nails, but dark claws may be less obvious. For kitty’s with black claws, a handy tool like the Gripsoft Palm Nail Grinder is a great option, allowing you to slowly grind down the nail and avoid cutting too short. When in doubt, err on the side of caution and trim small amounts regularly.
