  • Publication number: 20050210679
    Abstract: Provided herein is an illuminating nail clipper for clipping the nails of an animal such as a dog, cat, bird, or the like which allows for the clipping of an individual nail at the desired length to prevent injury or improper length cutting for the animal. The device includes a hand-actuated clipping blade used in conjunction with an adjustable in size nail holder which includes a cutting hole and which allows the nail to be clipped to be firmly held at a particular position relative to the nail cutting blade. Using an appropriate diameter aperture of the cutting hole, the animal nail may be inserted in an aperture of size sufficient to permit the nail to penetrate a particular distance based on the diameter size of the nail, which is tapered. A light source disposed on a flexible arm or conduit can be provided to illuminate an animal's nail to make it translucent, allowing the operator to see the capillaries within the nail and thus to avoid cutting to the live portion of the nail.

  • Publication number: 20050170040
    Abstract: A composition of matter with edible substrate (paper), edible ink, edible sticker, utilizing Catnip oil or particles, and utilizing edible ink for color both of which are printed onto the sticker surface. The edible sticker utilizes non-toxic, edible, dyes to create color used for colored images. These adhesive stickers attract felines through the use of a chemical additive, the aromatic oil (or essence) of the herbaceous plant catnip which is absorbed into the sticker paper along with the dye to create images that can then be peeled off and placed on objects for the amusement of the feline.
