Zen Clippers

Keeping your cat’s nails trimmed is an important part of keeping them healthy, while protecting your furniture and yourself. Trimmed nails are also less likely to catch on rugs and carpets, which can lead to a painful broken claw. Nail trimming is dreaded by many cat owners, who resort to expensive visits to the vet or groomer. Zen Clipper makes nail trimming at home easy and fool-proof. Zen Clipper ensures only the tip fits into the specially designed blade, ensuring you will clip the tip while avoiding the quick. There are seven sizes of Zen Clipper, most adults cats use Zen Clipper #2 (medium). If in doubt as to which size you need, Zen Clipper will be happy to mail you a free sizing card. 100% money-back guarantee and free exchanges if you need a different size than purchased.

    Love the folding cat tree! It looks like a book shelf! I always struggle with pet furniture because it doesn’t blend well into human furniture, but this one is an exception for sure.
