The ideal time to trim your cat's nails is when he or she is calm, happy and relaxed. Keep in mind that it's best to point your cat's claw away from you during trimming to prevent scratching and you might also want to cover your legs with a folded up towel or blanket for added protection.

The easiest way to keep your cat's paw still while you trim his or her nails is by holding it between your thumb and fingers. You want to apply a bit of pressure to make sure the paw doesn't move, but you don't want to squeeze too hard because this could cause discomfort.

Most cats will try to free themselves using their hind legs, so you should start by clipping those back paws first to prevent nasty scratches. Some cats let their owners trim their nails as they nap on their laps. This is why you might want to consider keeping a pair of clippers close by when you cuddle with your kitty.

Don't forget to trim your cat's dew claws! Located at the front of each leg and just below the wrists, these little claws look like a cat's thumb. Since these thumb-like claws don't tend to get used that often, the nails overgrow and can cause your cat pain. Check them out at least once a month to make sure they're trim.
