Ooopsz ! I'm away from home, and my "macro stage".
But I am at a fixed location, and I did bring a camera.
And its lens focuses quite close, as any modern zoom
will do since these recent years. No cat claw clippers,
cuz she has the vet do all that, but I'll find something.

Letzee ... there's the chicken dinner leftovers ... no,
too obvious ... but I'm working on it !

At one time, so did I, but that was in a previous century, and for a bigger animal than your typical domestic cat. Back then, the family had a German Shorthair/Labrador Retriever mix that needed his claws trimmed periodically. It was too expensive to have the vet do it and my father lost the dog's trust when he trimmed the dog's claws too close and got into the quick. It then fell to me to trim the dog's claws. Once I got the process down, it was actually fairly quick and painless for both me and the dog. I would give the command for the dog to lie on his side - "Bang bang!" in case you wanted to know, though sometimes the imaginary bullets took a few moments to become fully effective - and I would lie down at his feet with the clippers and a small supply of kibble to bribe the dog with. I then was able to trim the dog's claws at an agreed-upon price of one bit of kibble per two claws. No need for any restraints or to tie the dog's jaws or anything like that. When I was done, the two of us went outside for some tosses of the stick, Frisbee, ball, or, more usually, a short piece of radiator hose specifically used as the dog's toy, for as long as the dog wanted and didn't show undue signs of tiring. This was fun for the dog and helped blunt some of the sharp edges on the claws.

My dog lets me do it with no problems, she might try to take her feet back a couple of times but it usually goes pretty easy......
