This is my sweet baby Fiasco T. Peabrain (the T. stands for "ther" as in Winnie "ther" Pooh).
He's a little bitty cat compared to the others -- about 6.5 pounds. He's also head-shy -- no head-bopping or face-plants with this guy, and in fact he ducks away from kisses.
And he loves to stand on my lap and knead when I'm using the computer and in the "reading room." I have multiple scratches on my left thigh from his ministrations. And I forget that he is the most compliant when it comes to clipping those fishhooks off his front paws. I can do all 10 in less than a minute. I simply prop him on my lap, snip-snip-snip, and we're done. He raises no objection whatever. But it's his nature -- you gotta know your cats! Handsome Stranger gets angry after one or two clips, growling and struggling. So it takes a few sessions with him.
I use a regular nail clipper and take off only the really pointy ends.
