Yesterday I had to clip Thor’s claws.
I have never had a cat whose claws grew so fast! This is something that has to be done at least every 2 weeks or he starts clawing on the window screen.
He has a scratching pad that he uses, but it just doesn’t seem to keep them filed back enough.
To say the least, he is not a fan of this process.
So when the time comes, I have to calm him down by cradling him in my arms. I carefully grab the nail clippers and hope for the next few minutes I will not become a chew toy.
Immediately, this becomes the scenario.
I revert to Bugs Bunny, while Thor steps into the role of Gossamer. *
This is no joke.
I move into the role and repeat the lines that Bugs uttered in this cartoon. For some reason, this is the only way to keep him calm throughout the whole process.
I am happy to report that I was not maimed today.
Thank you once again Chuck Jones and Ted Pierce for creating this cartoon to be used in this situation.
And just to give you a little viewing pleasure, I found this:
That’s all folks!
* Unlike the cartoon, there were no water bowls and mousetraps used.
