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.

time.  He is semi feral, and the vet has to clip his hails.  He is diabetic,
and i don't mess with that.  Give her extra loves...as if I had to tell you
to do that!!!
