Remember, start handling your kitty's feet at a very young age, if you can! This is a vital step in getting him used to the feel of hands playing with his tickly feet.
If your cat is older and doesn't want you handling his feet, try wrapping him in a towel and cover his head. This may aid some cats in remaining calm during the clipping process. Be gentle and never force your cat if he is violently opposed to having his feet handled. No blood need be shed. Alternatively, buy yourself a beautiful cat tree that matches your decor.
