Dry the coat with a clean towel and then let it air dry.You should avoid using a hair dryer to dry the coat, since it will result in frizzy hair., Declawing your cat is highly discouraged. Instead, you should trim its nails weekly.Hold your cat on your lap in a quiet room. Massage each toe pad until the nail extends, then snip only the white part of the nail with cat nail clippers. Cut only one nail at a time.Your cat may be skittish at first. If this is the case, you should spend time getting your cat used to the sound of the clippers and the feeling of having its paws massaged.

If you are having troubling trimming your cat’s nails by yourself, get help from your vet or groomer.
