We have a dainty lady and her paws are equally tiny. She's got a couple nails that will grow into her toe pads without regular trimming, and these are perfect for the job. These clippers (including the blades) aren't bulky at all, so it's much easier to see exactly where the cut is going to be and that gives us more confidence that we'll avoid causing injury. Nice and sharp, so trimming is a breeze.
Okay, I know $20 is a lot for nail clippers when there are alternatives for a fraction of the price but this is the happiest I've been with cat nail clippers If you're happy with your current ones, maybe stick with those. Otherwise, these are worth a shot. Other nail clippers simply don't cut as easily. Would it be easier to use if they were curved? Probably. But at least they reliably cut
The middle screw is becoming loose after 2-3 uses over the past month. The scissors flop open easily and are difficult to maneuver. The blade isn't great at this price point, no fewer nail splits than the old store-brand clippers. One star for the cute design. Overall would not recommend.
