We managed to clip every single nail on all three piggies with no squeals, tears, blood or protestations today! All was over in 5 minutes!
Did them in reverse order if delinquency; Rey, Chewie then BB. The all sat on OH's lap, held sitting up by OH's be-gloved hands and let me snick-snick each back nail and calmly kept their front paws on the finger to snick the front ones. I was even able to gently manipulate their paws to get to those irritating curled nails on the inside. When each one was done they carried on just sitting on their bums instead of wriggling for freedom.

Cabbage is wonderful!

Well done! It feels great when you can do them yourself!

I have no idea how it was sooo easy with my last two and sooo stressful with these three! But fingers crossed they'll be that good next time too!
