Okay, so this is sounding very normal. Jeez. I obviously never knew because I walked the dogs on cement which probably helped filed it down and I've always had carpet so never hear them (unless they're in the kitchen or bathroom). Dangit! I was hoping I'd get a break. I've been snipping away every other day to get the quick to recede. Darnit, I was hoping there was a way to stop it. Maybe I need a cat scratch pole thingy. Thing that'll work? LOL.
