If you want to try in a place that's not likely to be very visible if your cats object, try clipping the belly first. That's usually one of the touchier places, and if they let you do the belly, chances are, they'll let you do the rest. And remember to NEVER clip against the grain, as a cat's skin is very elastic and can easily get caught in the teeth if you're not careful. Don't feel you have to do it all in one shot either. Get the belly and as much as the cat will tolerate in one sitting, and come back and do the rest another day if you see your cat is starting to freak out. And trust me, I've seen cats freak... it's scary!!
