Thursday tips!

Mom was going through some old posts and found this one.  Ellie thinks the information is impawtent for all of our furriends, so we're reposting it as a PSA.

One of the important parts of being a cat is keeping your toes (nails) manicured. Many bazillions of years ago our Mom bought this teepee on clearance in K-Mart. We've always loved it and use it all the time (as you can see). Here we are demonstrating how to keep your nails good and sharp!!

Ellie is demonstrating how to multi-task. She's sharpening her claws and stretching at the same time!

Make sure you position your paw correctly.


Once you get the position you can use both paws as demonstrated by Allie.


After a little while you can really get going!


Two can play at this game!
We hope you've enjoyed our lesson! Happy Thursday!

Great lesson, girls. We wish we could do that too, but we have to go to the vet or the groomer for our nails. Mom won't try it by herself:)

Cute teepee you have there.
