Hi, what is your favorite nail clipper for the kitties?

I've tried three different types of clippers: the small scissor type, the guillotine type, and human clippers. The guillotine one was a bit unwieldy, and seemed to frighten Niko. The scissor type worked well for the most part, but didn't seem to cut cleanly. The regular human clippers are my fav since they're small and not at all intimidating to him, plus they're easy to handle and cut cleanly.
A tip: they sometimes crush the nail a little if you use them normally, so I turn it to the side and cut so that the "blades" are vertical to the nail, instead. Makes a much cleaner cut. I've found that some of his claws grow thicker than others, and cutting vertically is the only way to go or the nail doesn't fit between the blades.
