I tried watching it and it said it for me too :(

 I need to do Kiwi's nails, or should I say nail as only 1 seems to be getting too long, but I am worried about cutting it too short. How do you know how much to cut off? And do you use normal nail clippers?

The out takes  :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

Oh Pat that was soooo funny, with what's going on with Frodo, I needed a laugh and you've gave me one, but on a serious note I do like the tickle toe, toes game and when we get our new AG on Tuesday I'll have a go at that, since we have never had to worry about nails/claws with Frodo

Thanks for making me smile

 :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:  Glad you liked it, he just makes me laugh so much......there's me giving it everything and he's just sat there looking at me!  :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

I play that game with him through the day if he's in the cage, obviously not filing his nails every time, but it's so much easier to file his nails when he thinks we are still playing tickle toe toes lol.

I file Charlie's nails.......ok, first of all I have to say, I'm not  :crazy:  you will see there is method in my madness..........

When Charlie is in his cage, we play a game called Tickle Toe Toes!  I say in a stupid voice, "tickle toe toes, I'm going to tickle toe toes!" then I catch his toes and play with them, touching all of the toe and the nails, he loves it, he goes upside down and bends his head around, we make it a game.....but........every so often we play the game and I have a nail file/emery board in my hand, so, we tickle toe toes and I file nails....easy peasy, done.  If you do it regularly, it's really only a two minute job.  Of course you have to remember which one you have done because you won't be able to play tickle toe toes for so long as to get them all done at once.  :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:


This made me smile when i read this. How lovely that you have such a bond like that and he responds to you like that
