Toenails and Tantrums....!!

Slinky...she's an excellent farm cat ! She was rescued by the Cats Protection League, she was completely wild when she arrived, but is very friendly now !

On Thursday, I thought that I'd trim Zaninni's toenails as they were long and needed attention.

So, this was the start of the mission......Zaninni does not like his toenails trimmed and he fights light a mad dog.... I tied him up with the halter and the quest began, he is friendly and we managed to do all the touching work down the legs and onto the feet and so on. But no matter how I tried he still resisted, he behaves like he is under attack from another alpaca, as you know the boys do tend to grab the legs of the others.

So there was no other way, a bit of brute force, once I had managed to get hold of his leg and keep hold of it, that's the secret. At the end of it I had a sweat on and its not easy, but i managed to do the fronts. We still have the back ones to do, he has a kick like a horse.

But, where there's a will there's a way....I will managed somehow, with a bit of ingenious know how and a bit of wrestling no doubt. I'm going to devise an invention or something...I feel an idea coming on.

Sounds like you have the same fun there as I do when it comes to Legend's toe nails. When I did his recently I only managed the front ones too!
