Re: How long do you keep their claws
Pet stores also have a dremel-type tool by Bamboo that is supposedly quieter than an actual dremel ($30 on line at Petco).
I tried one for a few days when Savannah was 11 weeks old, but there were just too many new things going on - the bright light, her foot being held, her toe being touched, the buzzing of the device, the vibration at contact. She had high-stress even after buzzing the device in her vicinity without touching it to her toes for days before that. We went back to nail clippers for a few months. My plan is to try an actual dremel when she gets older because I like the idea of filing more than cutting. By that time she will already be used to the light, her foot being held, her toes being touched, and a variety of loud noises.
