Q: Why is my cat biting her nails and how do I get her to stop?
My cat's claws aren't overly long as I trim them every now and then. However, lately she's been biting them and pulling at them with her teeth on a regular basis. It drives me nuts. I'm wondering why she does it and is there a way to keep her from doing it?

Cats do this as part of grooming and nail care. They clean them that way and also remove dead sheaths. I know it sounds horrible when they are doing it, but there is no cause for concern, unless she is focusing on one toe, and if there is blood or swelling.
