She's getting better, really she is. She didn't struggle until I started on the right back foot. I got the left front paw and the left rear paw clipped with soothing words and the "straight-jacket" approach. She just simply couldn't move.
I got 2 of the 4 rear claws clipped and she decided she'd had enough. There were growls and a couple of attempts to get away. I was able to grab and restrain her and get those last two clipped. Just one bandage tonight. This is an improvement. I'll wait until the weekend to do the right front paw. Yes, she gets treats after being subjected to this indignity. She holds me no ill will. She's actually asleep next to me right now.
