Give cats a better practice experience with the kitty burrito
Use these steps to safely wrap and restrain a cat for treatment.
At this point, only the cat's head should be out for pilling and other treatment. If you need to trim the cat's nails, repeat the steps above, extending one leg outside the wrap. This will take some time to accomplish, but it will prevent anyone from being hurt.
Alternately, if you see your cat prefers to have only her head covered to calm her and give her the sense she's hiding, you can gently place the towel over her shoulders and head. Some cats become very tractable when you do this. And remember, practice makes perfect, so try this on calm cats first to improve your technique.
