The best answer to that type of question is "now".
And not necessarily because they need it or are damaging things, but to accustom the kitties to being handled and having it done.
With baby kitties, everyday I squeeze each of their toenails out, handle their feet, poke in their ears, and open their mouths and look around. Comb their underarms, look at their teeth- the more you get them used to this type of thing the less stressful each veterinary visit will be. It is really a kindness to an animal to prepare it to handle life without stressing out, because sooner or later it is going to the vet for one reason or another.
So start doing nail trimming today and do it often. It is much easier on you, the cats, and everyone else if they get used to it.
