Also we must mention that the P.A. had a rather nasty accident involving her right thumb and a really sharp piece of metal a few years ago, this left her with a severed tendon, nerve damage and a 2" scar running offur the knuckle towards the underside of her wrist, so she has little or no feeling along the inside of her thumb and her hand span was considerably reduced. The injury has made using certain scissors a bit of an issue, howeffur this is NOT an issue with the Zen Clippers as the supurr clever peeps who designed them, made them sprung-loaded - we have to say GENIUS guys, and WELL DONE! This alone give you top marks! MOL
Smoochie was conspicuously absent as we, The Heathen Hoard had a little meeting.
"So we need a willing victim," I began. "Sorry I meant to say willing volunteer to help the P.A. snip-test these new clippers... paws up who wants to be IT?!"
At that moment Smooch ambled into the kitchen and sat under the sideboard.
I grinned at the rest of the hoard and said. "Ah divine intervention at its furry best!"
Smooch gave me a rather puzzled look and I continued. "Smooch, dude can mew help the P.A.?"
"I need mew to sit there, stick your leg out and let the P.A. trim your back-toenails, ok?" I said.
"Oh sure no purroblem at all!" Smoochie replied and promptly stuck his leg out. "Like this?"
I nodded and said. "Purrfect dude!"
He beamed widely.
As mew can see he just lay there and took it like a real man-cat!
Two snips and it was done, no fractured nails, a beautiful clean cut and the clippers were totally silent too.
Fur those of mew that don't know, Smoochie is a tripawed kitty; he was hit by a car when he was a semi-feral kitten at the P.A.'s wurkplace [the P.A. had been slowly taming him and his siblings]. Anyhoo, she & dad took him to vet only to learn his leg was so badly damaged a full amputation had to happen. So keeping his back toe-nails trimmed is vital fur him!
The P.A. was so impressed with him she just had to give him a kiss!
These are our findings aftur the Zen Clippers were Smooch-tested:
A truly amazing product, easy to use and from a safety point of view fur claw clipping, as long as mew have the correct size and follow all the guidelines mew will neffur trim anything other than the nail, neffur the quick. Plus mew can do it at home, so no more traumatic trips to vets with squirmy kitties that are already stressed-out by the time mew get there and another bonus is - it saves mew money in the long run = WIN WIN WIN.
I know we made it look supurr easy today and believe me when I say, it was supurr easy with Smooch. Parsley howeffur may be at the other end of the spectrum and will probably have to be swaddled in a towel, this we have yet to discover when dad gets back from his trip in a few days because it will definitely be a two-peep job. But we're 100% sure Parsley will be more relaxed at home than at the vets, and we're hoping he surprises us all and has a no-stress claw-clipping-session.
All in all, we give the Zen Clipper TOP MARKS!
