Here are some things to think about.
Are you a calm, patient person?
Does your body tense up when you hold your cat?
Are you a quiet person, or do you use a loud voice at home?
Are you willing to try different ways of holding your cat?
Are you willing to trim the claws in a piecemeal fashion, a few claws every now and then?
Does your cat lay still for claw trims?
Does your cat wiggle just a bit or is your cat a major wiggler?
Does your cat hiss, scratch and even bite during claw trim attempts?
Do you have a condition that makes being scratched more of a concern, such as a blood condition or susceptibility to infection?
