first sorry I didn't get your name
along w/projecting anxiety, Rosie knows when her 2 humans go in the bathroom w/her what will since they take
her in there all time ...I'd regulary change the room you use

I can't cut my cats claws (they go spaz then I get maybe 1 or 2 & don't which I've done) my daughter does it, I never seen it done this way,
Rudy is standing on the floor, my daughter stradles him with her legs then squats over Rudy using her butt for a little pessure to hold him in place the qucikly does the nails and usally Moe is another room (if lucky) and hasn't seen as both my cats are indoor guys ...it worrks great and the boys don't growl or hiss at her, no bitting or scratching,,,I have chronic pain and can't do that way

This is how I do it. On a wood or other non-carpet floor. I kneel over Meep, crossing my legs behind me so she can't go backwards.

I think it might be a dominance thing to them, being over and controlling, puts me as alpha in our clowder of two humans and one cat ) At any rate, when I do it that way she doesn't struggle much. I try other ways, she fights me a lot more.
Which reminds me, she's probably due for a trimming...
