Binga hates having her claws trimmed, but she will spend an excessive amount of time grooming them herself.
You would think she had the best manicure in town with all the work she puts into it.
But trust me… those claws are still plenty dirty!

Your cat is gorgeous! Thanks for sharing this. My cat is the same way 😎
Oh lovely Binga you are such a pretty lady, we all have problems with our manicure…don’t worry :)>
I think it shows that her claws are very personal to her.
I don’t mind getting pawdicures. Mom has lots of practice and she’s pretty quick at it. But I have to be in the mood.
Does she ever chew her claws? Me does that sometimes, drives Mommy NUTSO!
Spitty the Kitty says
NO ONE but me touches my toes. The only mani-pedi I ever had was when they GASSED me last summer before my tutoring. Good luck to anyone that tries it while I am conscious.
Oui Oui says
We are willing to bet they are pretty sharp! Maybe a little cat scratch fever will be coming soon to anyone who crosses her.
Binga makes the funniest faces:)
Callie (a.k.a. Trouble) says
BINGA, don’t worry – Your claws are clean. Sparkle is probably just jealous of your rising star!!
The Florida Furkids says
We don’t mind our mani/pedi spa days. Even Cousin Trooper lets our Mom do his.
BTW….a BIG BOX came to our house today! Mom says we can’t open it yet because it was a rainy day and she wants good pics.
We say booo on the flashy box!

We think the clawing is better when you lick your paws first 😉
We do not like clipping sessions either!!

It takes two humans to trim one cat’s claws in our house.
Layla Morgan Wilde says
We have plenty of dirty claws here from the garden. Boodie, thanks for reminding me it’s trimming time.
Cathy Keisha says
My peeps were hoping the v-e-t would trim my claws but he and his henchmen were no match for me.
The Poupounette Gang says
A for effort, Binga!!!
A lady cat gotta do what a lady cat has got to do!
Priscilla won’t tolerate nail trims, but Charlie is so chill he just falls asleep! 😛
Thank you for stopping by to wish him a happy birthday yesterday! I hope I will be seeing you soon at BlogPaws!
Love that last photo – Look at those eyes!
Moosey is okay with having his claws trimmed. Sammy was, too. 🙂
Thank you, dear pals, for your kind and thoughtful comments when it was time for our Sammy to leave for the Bridge. We truly are lucky to have such wonderful and supportive friends.

Obviously Binga likes being a well groomed cat. Our person trims our front claws. She has a pair of clippers made for cat claws so it doesn’t hurt. We always give our toes a through cleaning afterwards. Bandit, Selleck, and Their Person, Emily. 😎
Savannah NanaMo says
no, no, no…Binga doesn’t have ‘dirty’ claws! They are very very tidy…I can tell. She keeps them purrfectly groomed…sadly…mine are now much shorter after the torture session I endured last night from Mom and dad…sigh
A girl does, what a girl hasa do. Us mancats not ever unnerstand!
Fanks fur the furry good deductive reasonings in our mystery. Even if you not gives me the credit. Mine mommy finks you knows us kitties purrty gud!
Your furend, TK
Baby Tali says
Binga is always cool!!! 😀
Madi and Mom says
Binga I know what you mean…after my pedicure (which I loath) I have to lick and lick and lick to get the human cooties off my feets
hugs madi your BFFF
Famous SpokesGoat Pricilla says
I am not fond of having my hooves trimmed so I can empathize.
Katie Bella says
Oh you beautiful girl. My claws are like sabers. It’s time to take me again!
Okay, you know I will be different, I love having my claws trimmed!!!
The photos are pricelessâ€¦such a lovely pink tongue. We couldn’t tell that she had a paw at her mouth because of the shadow on the carpet. Mom had to make the photos really BIG so we could see it. Keep up the good work Binga. After all, we kitties are supposed to be self-cleaning. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Josette
Caroline chews her front claws. The sound–eeek! Makes us mental.
Westley, Horus and Miracle Max (Mandi) says
Westley loves getting his claws trimmed, Horus does not mind- except for his dew claw- being a polydactyl they are located between paw sections (ouch!) and Max HATES having his done. As indoor cats- it is a necessity to have the tips trimmed.
Keep up the good work Binga!!
da tabbies o trout towne says
binga…stik yur toes in sum flounder ore mackerull oil…yur toes will smell grate, bee kleen N they will taste good two when groomin !!
Binga is so cute! She has her eye on your human to make sure she doesn’t bother her mani! We both don’t mind having manis or pedis since Daddy holds us and Mommy is quick about it. We know if we didn’t get them we wouldn’t be able to get under the covers at night since Mommy doesn’t like waking up with claw marks all over. She’s weird.
Jasper McKitten-Cat says
Dad has to help our Aunt Tiff trim her cats’ nails and they are so silly because they all hide under her comforter on her bed when he comes over, thinking that they won’t be found. For cats who like to hide, they’re not very good at it.
Toby & Leia says
Binga is clearly aware of the impawtance of well groomed paws.
feeling beachie says
that tongue is a killer.. love it
My boys don’t like have their nails trimmed either.
These are very cute pictures of Binga. What a pretty tongue 🙂
The Island Cats says
Yeah, Wally does the same thing. You should see him pull on those claws. You’d think he’s gonna pull them out!
We don’t get our claws trimmed either. We sure wouldn’t let that Person do that to us Are you kidding?? Take care.
Binga is a doll, I love this sequence of pictures!
Sometimes, Cats Herd You says
We don’t let anyone snip our claws, either. It would be at least a two-peep job, and still would require a blood transfusion standing by.
The Kitties of Purring Pines says
Ditto. We go outside & have lots of trees & posts to scratch! Besides, Mommy’s not that brave!
Mark's Mews says
We dont get our claws snipped either, and we like it that way.
Hannah and Lucy says
We don’t think we would be very well behaved if Mum had to trim our claws. Fortunately with going outside and climbing fences it keeps ours nicely trimmed – Mum is very relieved because she’s sure she would need gauntlets on before trying to trim ours!
