This video was very usable. I learned how to clip my cats claws even though he only has back claws. I know what to do now when Mr.Nosey is not used to having his nails cut.

The video was ok. Cat was unnaturally cooperative, based on my experience, unless it was sedated!! I have always found the idea to brace the cat against your body helpful when doing claws by myself. I don't know that it would work with my two to put them flat on anything -- they don't always want to be held for things like this. As you say, training the cat from kittenhood works the very best. My late husband insisted on participating in this process (because he loved the cats), so now I have to try to un-train mine from two people doing this, to one person.
