Looking after your cats claws


Looking after your cats claws

22 April 2014

Like human nails, our feline friend’s claws grow continuously. Left to grow, there is a possibility that they could pierce the cat’s pads as they do not grow straight but curved.

Cats that spend a lot of time outside tend not to need their claws trimmed as often as house cats. During their activities outside such as climbing trees and walking on hard surfaces their nails get slightly worn down.

Trimming your cat’s claws for the first time can be a daunting task. You must pay every care to not trim them too short as there are blood vessels located at the base of the claw. As well as this, your cat could become distressed and fidget making the task even more difficult.

If you would like to avoid the hassle and stress of doing this yourself, we offer a cat nail trimming service at our cattery in Surrey. For the small price of £9 for one cat and £15 for two, during their stay with us or even if you would just like to pop in we can do it in our cat spa.

We also offer other cat grooming services that include bathing, face and ear cleaning, brushing, and clipping (lion cuts, matt removal etc.)

All of this is carried out by our trained staff in our fully equipped cat grooming spa at Suma Farm Cat Hotel in Surrey.
