How to trim your cat's nails:

1. Prepare the necessary tools, such as special cat scratching posts or ordinary claw scissors with rounded ends.

2. Find a quiet and comfortable place to perform the procedure. You can use a table or chair on which the cat will sit.

3. Gradually get your cat accustomed to the process of trimming the claws. Start by touching the nails with a scratching post or scissors without cutting directly. Reward her with small treats or praise.

4. When the cat gets used to being touched, start trimming its nails gently. Take the nail in your fingers and carefully trim only the transparent part, avoiding the pink blood flow inside the nail. If you accidentally cut off blood flow, stop and stop the bleeding with a stylized blood stop powder or a special product available from a veterinary pharmacy.

5. Gradually cut one claw on each paw and take breaks so that the cat does not experience too much stress.

It is important to remember that nail trimming should be a positive experience for the cat. If she's too nervous or won't let her nails be trimmed, it's best to contact a veterinarian or groomer for professional help.
