I'm not sure that I would use pepper!
I would recommend Styptic Powder as this is recommended by vets and groomers!!

Molly's claws are pinkish white, and it is quite easy to see where the quick begins! My rule of thumb is to just take the point off the claw - very little chance to get the quick!
As for black claws, Tibby has some of these! They are really juat as easy to trim them, as white claws! Again, just take the tip!
With this rule, I haven't hurt or caused bleeding with any of my kitties!
If you are still concerned, visit your vet or groomer and ask them to teach you where to trim! I'm sure they'll be only too happy to help and it'll set your mind at rest!
