Deluxe Nail Trimmer for Cats
Excellent tool but use it carefully
I have two cats that now have to stay indoors most of the time. Their claws grow quickly although I have many scratch items for them. I purchased this tool and use it when the cats are relaxed one claw at a time. I take off the sharp tip and never further up to the area that will cause bleeding. I paid the vet to do this before and they charge 15.00 for each cat and they cut the nails too short. This way it doesn't hurt them I am not cutting too short and they don't mind it, because the tool just cleanly and quietly cuts the nail. I think because it cuts the nail so quietly and the blade when used right does the job quick, it's sharp. At first I was nervous and decided I would not cut them short. They don't mind because it doesn't deprive them of the use of their nails and it's kind of a bonding time.

Great Product for the Price
I recently purchased these trimmers to replace a set I'd had for too many years ! They work so well, cut cleanly and make quick work of the dreaded "claw trimming day" I'd highly recommend them to anyone looking for a low cost, very effective cat claw trimmer.

Easy for first time manicures
I have never used a guillotine style nail clipper before and never really had much success with the old fashioned scissor type. I bought this because I had just purchased a brand new livingroom suite, and I didn't want my six cats tearing it up. I bought this along with the soft claws nail caps so I could trim the nails before applying the caps. None of my cats had ever had their nails trimmed before, and they took to this like champs! I waited until mid day when they were well into their afternoon slumbers, and one by one I started trimming away. At first, I didn't like the feeling of the nail being squeezed in the blade, but quickly got used to it. The nails clip cleanly and straight through with no difficulty, minus a few paws being jerked away from me when they'd get sick of it :D There is also a 3 year manufacture guarantee to work or they will replace it for you. Try it!

Huh....I thought the tool helped to prevent hitting the quick
As noted above, the tool is not easy to use, esp. with 3 cats that do not like their nails cut. I thought it would help identify the quick (nail bed), but that's still up to me. I've used it and a bit better than my previous tool.
