HUGE support!

Maybe names of Intersex Flag (Stripe) and Intersex Flag (Circle)?

I like aiming for the career achievements, but I feel like they could have a better incentive. Payout of fc is rather low, even for achievements that are rather high-tier.

I was thinking recently it might be cool if achievements gave a bonus- either for completing each one giving a small bonus, or completing all for a career giving a larger bonus. Bonus ideas: slightly higher chance of Animal Husbandry careers catching rarer animals or rarer colors of these animals, Chefs taking just a little bit less time to cook something, explorers getting one extra turn, etc.

They really are! I'm glad he seems in good spirits for now though. Sometimes if my bun or dog is particularly scared of the clippers, I do a few toes at a time and take a minute or so in-between to cuddle and calm them, or even only do one or two paws a day! Depends on the personality and how finicky the animal.

Working with them in an area they're unfamiliar with (not an area they're used to running around and playing in) I've also found works- he sat PERFECTLY still for the groomer at the pet store always, but never on my bed! They're not as familiar, so they don't feel as comfortable jolting around, which decreases any likelihood of them getting hurt on accident.

It takes experience getting used to clipping, for both the person and the animal :) you'll both get better with time.

^^^ In agreement with Illyasviel.

One thing I would say to help prevent cutting the quick I've found:

Take a two-step approach to the cut. Do a press-down of the clippers twice. The first time, do a hard press but don't actually cut down on the clippers- this allows for the bun to pull back if it thinks you're too close to the quick. The second, do the actual cut.

Some buns may not like any type of pressure and always pull back, but mine seems to tolerate me doing this well!
