When trimming, only the front clear cuticle can be cut and must be polished smooth after trimming. Initially the cat will be more averse to nail clipping, it is best to choose when it just wakes up to trim, after trimming one or two, if it shows impatience, you can let it play and give food or toys to reward, be sure not to force, so that it produces more resistant emotions.
