I suppose you're right there Dede. We've never had problems clipping Lennie's nails and I did clip Snowy's left paw last week. She has a scratching post and uses it regularly so I wasn't too concerned that she wouldn't let me do her right side. Now I know why she wouldn't let me. I think she's a little ticked at me right now. She won't even let me pet her.

An infected paw wouldn't help anything heal. Glad you found it. I have a cat who has that happen all the time. He is semi feral, and the vet has to clip his hails. He is diabetic, and i don't mess with that.
