Choose your battles, Tyson...

We had a bit of a tiff this morning. Tears were shed, mommy feels bad... what's up with that mommy guilt, anyway?? ...and there was a definite winner. In a 'you just won yourself a kick in the bum!' kind of way.

The contenders?

It wasn't pretty. I turned my back for a second--literally, a second! ...and little man was in tears. Tyson's CLAW was STUCK in Camden's forehead! Who does that??

Stupid cat.

I ran over and scooped Camden up, but not before telling Mr. Meanie Pants just how meanie pants he is.

Don't worry though--there wasn't even any blood, and I got him all cleaned up and de-germified.

That cat, however. He's in t.r.o.u.b.l.e. and he knows it. He's currently under the bed and having visions of a major nail trim. He's lucky he's isn't already en route to the vet--er, day spa... for a a luxury claw-removal... I mean. Pedicure.

...and we won't mention the reasoning behind Tyson's less-than-tactful approach.

Ok, Mr. (or Mrs.) Anonymous... I'll leave your comment up there just because I think it's so darned funny.

In an attempt to avoid drama, let's just say whether or not to leave your kitty's claws in tact is a personal decision that should be made based on what is appropriate for your OWN family, hmm?

I was only referring to my anonymous commenter, and not you, Maggie!

Your comment gave me a good giggle, actually :o)

I trim my cats claws? I can definitely say I'm on the side of not de-clawing, not to be argumentative or anything! I just don't want my nails ripped out of my fingers and toes so I won't do it ti them! But, I'll rear my head and tell you that to your face...err blog? Not anonymously! LOL!
