NAIL CLIPPING

Should the dog show signs of being uncomfortable when clipping its nails, first get it accustomed to its paws being handled by massaging each of its paws for 10 or 15 seconds, until it shows no negative reaction …

My parents adopted Gypsy from the Ottawa Humane Society in January 1979 (when my mother was pregnant with me!) when she was about 2-3-months old. When I was a toddler, I would not leave Gypsy alone! I used to chase her and pull her tail. I don't think she forgave me until I was maybe 10-13-years old. She was very affectionate (especially with my mom), but was a bit of a loner and she definitly had her bad moods! She was an indoor/outdoor cat her whole life but never went too far from home, especially in her older years. Unfortunately, after the "Ice Storm" in January 1998, she acted differently and seemed to be in a bit of pain. Before we could take her to the vet (who she hated with a passion!), she died peacefully (she almost seemed to just "fall asleep") on the floor of the family room one evening while everyone was watching TV. She wa the first cat to be buried in my parents' garden, the "unofficial pet cemetery". Gypsy we love you!
