Hehe, i've been whining about Bailee's ridiculously sharp claws for a while now but with summer approaching and me wearing t-shirts and singlet tops those claws are leaving scratches all up and down my arms and shoulders. :rolleyes: In the last 3 days it's been worse than that - the idiot has tried to land ON my face. After a scratch across my eyebrow and under my eye and also one just above my lip i'd had enough so i towelled Bailee and got out the nail clippers. He was so squirmy but those nails were long enough that it wouldn't matter how much i cut off. He came out of the ordeal with his feathers all scruffed up and feeling very annoyed at his mean old mummy. However, with a brain that makes a goldfish look smart he quickly forgot and was begging kisses and head scratches off me. :p

Bailee must feel insecure when he walks i think. He grips on with his nails whereas Cookie's nails barely touch me.

Awww Bea! I know what u mean about the nails. Ziggy's were SO sharp they went right through my t-shirt. I clipped and filed them so now they're not as bad but the thing is I gotta tell you. Baby doesn't grab on so tightly either but Ziggy really does. He's clentched on sometimes and Baby's always relaxed.
