Penny’s Tips

Hi everyone! I have a repeat tip for you today. I just want to remind you that Pennies are great for filling plastic Easter eggs. I prefer nip in mine, but the kiddos will like the pennies.

Today we are focusing on the letter N in the A-Z Blogging Challenge. To see more blogs participating in the A-Z hop, click here. N is for nail clipping. To save money , you can clip your cat’s nails at home. I do most of my cats nails except for KaTwo and Polar Bear- even the vet techs can’t do theirs unless they are drugged. If you have never done it before, you can ask them to show you the next time you are at the vets. There are also a lot of videos on youtube that show you how.

We are joining Comedy Plus’ Happy Tuesday Blog Hop.




  1. Oh, we know all about the pennies in the basket, Penny πŸ˜€ I still scratch my nails on the wood and the mat, so when my mom comes, she doesn’t have to do it…I guess that why I still do it myself…MOL πŸ˜€ Pawkisses for a Happy Day to all of you???

  2. That’s a great tip! In fact, the last time my Mom hid plastic eggs for the neighbors she put $$ in them!

    Hugs, Teddy

  3. Great idea about pennies in the eggs! I started early with the nail clippers for Z Cat and she was pretty cooperative. She knew there was a treat coming. Our cats before Z wanted no part of nail clipping!

    1. Penny thanks you πŸ™‚ I am a meanie, I don’t give out treats after- I will have to start. XO

  4. That’s a great tip, and getting pennies is better for kids than getting a whole ton of candy, I think!
    I do trim Sam’s nails myself, but if she’s at the vet for something else, I have them do it too. I’m always too conservative with how much I take off; they do a better job! πŸ™‚

  5. Good to see you’re back with more tips, Penny. We trim all of our cats’ nails at home. It’s not hard and if you give them a treat afterward, they quickly learn to tolerate it. LOL

  6. Candy isn’t a good thing. Well a little, but not a lot. Pennies are an excellent choice.

    Oh the nail clipping. I so remember the blood and kitty scratches.

    Thank you for joining the Happy Tuesday Blog Hop.

    Have a fabulous Happy Tuesday, Penny. My best to your smart mom. β™₯

  7. When we adopted Angel and Chuck, the deal was that I was in charge of every veterinary visit; The Hubby would NOT go! Somehow, for the very first visit, I talked him into accompanying me. The vet showed him how to clip their nails, and voila, he’s done it ever since. I think I’ve trimmed one cat nail in 15 years! However, Da Boyz don’t like it, so The Hubby just leaves ’em alone…he’d rather have scratched blue jeans instead of making the cats mad at him…LOL!

  8. Oh yes, the humans here put lots of coins in the Easter eggs for the grands – they have a lot of fun finding the eggs and counting their money:)

  9. Sadly, William was the only cat who would tolerate Mom giving him a pawdicure. Everybody else turned into instant wiggle worms, and now, *we* use our claws on Mom to remind her how much we like them left alone whenever the clippers make an appearance! (She’s given up.)

    Anyway, great tip about the pennies, Penny! We agree about the nip, though.

  10. Penny, this is a purrfectly festive tip! The kitties here are now informing me that they expect catnip-filled eggs on Easter morning. And, you also just reminded us that we’re coming up on nail trimming day here at our house. We’re all so excited. Purrs!

  11. Pennies in the eggs make for fun ersatz maracas, too.

    Nail clipping has to be done very carefully around here, and usually not all at once.

  12. We do monthly nail trims when we do flea meds. (Our cats have to be on them because we have a dog who goes outside.) Luckily, I’m able to do all the cats at home, but Olive requires two people.
