Yesterday, it was time, again, to take McDuff for his pedicure … to have his claws clipped. I can’t do it, myself, so we take him to the vet, where two girls do it and it costs $20. This is a problem most indoor cats are faced with, and if we don’t have it done, they’ll grow in to his pads. Terrible! As soon as I can hear him walking on the floor, I know it’s time. This is a bit of a hassle, mainly because he’s so scared — terrified — and I suffer because he suffers, but always a great relief afterwards.

Here’s a picture of him, which I took with the new iPhone. It’s somewhat cropped, and I added a little vignette.

IMG_0032Β I think I’ll let him do a guest post here sometime πŸ™‚

      Thank you, Annakarin! I know … you’re so good at it! I should have started when he was little, but from what I remember it didn’t go any better then πŸ™‚

    He is gorgeous Reb and you should let him do a guest post from time to time. I’d love to hear his views – especially on the nail clipping!

    He is so very handsome. I would like to see him in a bow tie, just for fun! Can’t wait for him to hiss at me about the wearing of the tie. I think it should be plaid.
    Let me know what he thinks.

    Does he get mad at you after you take him? When we would go on vacation our cat would lay on the Mr.’s pillow. lol When we took her to the vet she would turn her back on us for a day.

    EEooww McDuff me iz so….***swoonz***
    Sorry Rebby & McDuff it seems Nylablue fainted when she saw his photo….I might just **swoon** too!!!
    He is one handsome mancat!
    I am glad the 2 ladies can give McDuff a pedicure; the $20. is worth it so you don’t have to wrestle with him. Every 3 months Dr Dave & I wrestle Nylablue & she gets her pedicure….under protest….lol…
    Love Sherri-Ellen & Nylablue ❀ ❀ ❀

      He’s blushing a little now … underneath all the grey! πŸ™‚ Thank you!
      Sarah, the vet, she does it herself — she holds him and does the clipping, she’s amazing. But she was busy with something else that day. I find it WELL worth the $20 LOL

    πŸ˜‰ I bet McDuff is blushing…he is so handsome & Nylablue’s first Interwebbernetz boyfriend…her ‘puppy’ love, lol…
    A,azing that one person can clip the claws. i used to be able to do that with Mingflower…
    Nylablue refuses that idea! πŸ˜‰

    The picture is wonderful. My cats are out and in, so I dont have to clip their claws, but my little dog needs it,and she doesnt like it NO! I do it myself, because she bites the vet LOL.

    1. Rebekah McNulty

      Good for you, that you can do it yourself [and that she doesn’t bite YOU πŸ™‚ ].
      Where you live, it must be great for the cats … judging from the pictures I’ve seen, the place looks fabulous!

        It is a wonderful place, and we dont have many neighbourghs, its most summer houses here around, so we have it all for ourselves most of the year. And the nature here is magnificent, the forest is close to us and so is the sea ( Kattegat). There is a view point here, where we can see Kullen and Hallands VΓ€derΓΆ.
