    You should tell them how long is too long to leave that clip on. People would be leaving it on all day trying to calm hyper kittens.

    i begin when my kitten comes home to start rubbing their paws and getting them used to me touching their paws and pushing the nail out..this makes them comfortable with it and me too and i just love touching the soft pads anyway lol…i have had cats for over 20 years and not had a problem with any of my cats when i do this

      BC,Get with the program and become assimilated, will ya? Up. Up! Everything is moving upward because B.O. has brought us “Hope.” No lowercase “h”s for him. Nosiree Bob. Debt doesn’t matter. Loss of manufacturing doesn’t matter. Alt-A does not matter. Hope, is all that matters.So, roll another one. Just like the other one. You’ve been holding onto it, and we sure would like a hit of Hopium.

    That comment is ridiculous, you look great and perfectly healthy! I'd love to see what anonymous looks like…Love the sequin top and skirt, hop you're enjoying London. I'm a native Londoner and there's so much to see and do, though I'm moving to the U.S soon!

    Cette pâte à pie et l’association fraises-rhubarbe, c’est exactement la recette que je cherche depuis qu’un ami américain nous l’avait concocté…il y a quelques années! Merci.
