In other news, the soft paws arrived yesterday! I had a flash of inspiration the other day and managed to get all of Melly's nails trimmed by wearing my big terrycloth bathrobe over my clothes for extra protection, but I am going to wait until Geoff next comes over to apply the soft paws. The directions say the cat is supposed to stay fairly still for a few minutes after application, so putting them on The Squirmy One will definitely be a two-person job. I'll let you know how it goes!
