I've been rescuing domestic, feral and semi-feral cats for years. Cutting nails on a less-than-social cat, or even a very domestic one who has issues with you touching his feet, is ALWAYS a challenge. I've found other ways to do it but it always causes much more stress to the animal. Using the Air Muzzle is AMAZING! Because you don't have to "over-restrain" them when using it, they are much more calm! Don't know why I didn't buy one of these years ago except not enough people know about it!
A civilian with a crabby cat .... love this!

My Athena over the last year has become intolerant of having her nails clipped by the vet tech.. Last time she went for him with her mouth, lucky he moved & just got scratched. So next time I took her to a groomer and it took two people, one holding her down.
Now, I have no problem with that. But I do not want my cat to bite someone & I don't want her stressed every time her nails need cut.
So I bought one for my home use for my cat. First week I just left it open on the floor & put her treats in it. She tried to paw them out, but couldn't. So she sticks her head in to eat them..After a week I sat behind her & pulled it over her head. I trimmed just one foot, didn't want to overdo the first time. She wiggled a lot and snarled a little, but didn't fight at all or try to scratch.. Believe it or not, later that day I put it back on the floor with treats in it & she stuck her head in and ate.
I know ya'll are professionals reading this ... but wanted to share how much easier this muzzle was for Athena.
(FYI, I used to trim my previous cat's nails with no problems & I volunteer with cats. But Athena is her own "person" and i respect that (and her teeth). :)
Great safe muzzle
