    Had that trouble myself when used to having cats.

    Me too. It had to be me holding the cat wrapped in a towel and my husband clipping. Didn’t work in reverse.

    Towels don’t work. I stuff my cats into the sleeve of an old sweatshirt . Works great. Trouble is, now they are afraid of sweatshirts….

    Never have any trouble clipping the cat’s nails, but the ONLY time our dog ever bit anybody was when we tried to clip his nails. Now I just make sure he walks in the tarmac in the park, and that wears them down.

    We have to trim our cat’s nails…I sit on a chair and he sits on my lap with his back to me, and hold his back skin with one hand and his “arm” with the other while my husband clips. The cat fights like a wildcat.

    Surprisingly, the cat that hated me, let me clip his nails, but the cat that loves me won’t let me touch his feet. But nobody can touch his feet. Luckily he keeps his own nails short somehow. The dog thinks it’s the greatest thing in the world since he gets treats after! ;)

    My moms dog has to be brought to the vet and muzzled to trim her nails. :s

    It was a two person job but if you keep the cat calm and show them it isn’t all that bad you might convince them not to scratch you face off.

    If you start while they’re still kittens they let you do it without too much trouble. They still squirm but they’ll let you do it.
