This is Why I Don't Do Pet Care for a Living

weather: hot
outside: 24°C
mood: guilty
music: Vivaldi - Violin Concerto in F Minor, Opus 8, No. 4

Ah shit.

I was cutting Guai-Guai's toenails and I cut too close. He started bleeding. =P He stopped after a minute or two, but he would bleed a little again if he got upset or excited. I got him to walk on some flour and distracted him with a zipper pull. That helped.

All because I noticed that I could hold his toes without much consequence. He'd flap and try to get away, but obviously couldn't. He'd bite me but it didn't hurt me enough to actually let go. So I thought, cool, I'll just hold his toes and clip.

Well, he still twitches and flaps. And here I am, wanting to snip quickly and get it over with because <sarcasm>I imagine</sarcasm> it's traumatizing to be held captive by one toe. I know how to tell where the blood vessel starts and how deep to cut, if I could only SEE what I was doing.

But his toenails were getting so long and sharp that he was getting caught in everything, including just walking up my sleeve. When he gets caught halfway up to my shoulder, there's nothing I can do except stand still and let him beat my face in, trying flap himself free.

Meh. =(
