Does your cat run and hide as soon as you break out the nail clippers? Probably because you hurt their sensitive nails last time you attempted to clip them. Zen Clippers are uniquely designed conical scissor that evenly clips your cat's nails from all sides so you don't damage the sensitive "quick" in their nails.
