Easiest way is to wrap them in a towel and do it.

It was my pal Gemima who said about clipping dogs and cats claws but she is in the S25 area. Looks like you've got it sorted anyway - nice 1 :thumbsup:

Teeny used to cut our buns and showed us how to do them but the wife got brave and got some clippers and we do them ourselves now, i hold, she cuts!
