Rated 5 out of 5 by CatsAndKittensLover Solid grip, good design, clipping makes it easy!
My adult cats' claws grow fairly quickly, so I trim them monthly.
The other type of large clipper with long handle is awkward to use, and it is intimidating to cats. But this "Four Paws Ultimate Touch" cat clawl clipper is small and less scary for the cats, and therefore less stressful for the cats. The clipper fits just right to my fingers. The red portion of the grip is solid and not slippery, so it makes the clipping easier.
The cutting blade remains sharp for a long time that I only replaced every 5 years or more.
I think the price is good so I bought 2 pairs (which should last 10 years or more...).
If you have cats who do not like claw clipping (most cats don't), this compact clipper is a good small size and may be less stressful for them. I recommend this clipper.

These clippers are very small and flimsy. It's very hard to hold them even when you have a smaller hand.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Susie55 Okay for Kitten Nails, Not Adult Cats
For years I've been using big sllding blade type clippers for my cats' nails and after reading some good reviews, decided to try these.
They are quite small, I have small hands so they are easy for me to hold. It's easier than the big clippers for me to see my cats' nails, which makes clipping a bit smoother going.
But my cats are all under 12 pounds and I cut just the longest, pointy tips off their nails. If they were bigger cats with heavier nails, or I was clipping further up, I don't think these could handle it. I could feel the plastic handles "give" on my cats nails as it was.
So, these clippers are OK but feels like they may not hold up....the handles are molded-on plastic and with a little bit if too-much leverage, the plastic will break off.
I'll continue to use them for my kittens but it's back to the big clippers for my adult cats.
I wouldn't buy them again for adult cats, but yes for kitten nails.

Clean cut seems more comfortable to the cat than another cutter that I purchased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lois These clippers are small and easy to handle.
I have used this size clipper for years, and somehow my pair disappeared. I went to a couple local pet stores and all they had were the larger sized clippers. I have to have something that fits comfortably in my hand, and that means a small clipper. This one is perfect. It's hard enough to keep the cat happy while I'm clipping their nails, and something bigger would be too hard for me to handle, along with a cat's paw.

This clipper is very easy to use- very sharp and since it is in the shape of a scissors it really works very well.
We have tried many types but this clipper really rocks. I recommend it highly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SnowCat It works just fine!
This pair of clippers has sharp blades, and easily clips the nails of both kittens and adult cats. Since it's small, it is easy to work from different angles when a cat squirms. Easy to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Chrissy Good quality! Sharp!
These are the perfect size for precision on our little kitty's paws. They are very sharp, so it cuts easily. Our cat doesn't have any problem when we use them to trim his nails. Great product!
