A few of mine are so tenacious, they dig in claws and teeth and cling, usually to both arms, so the only way to get them off is to play mother cat and grab them by the scruff of the neck . . . with my teeth. Ptewwy! I don't recommend this method if you can avoid it but when they've got you pinned and the blood loss is making you black out . . .

As much as I hate hate HATE it, Tiger is front-declawed. So I only have to worry about his teeth and back claws. He's pretty good at taking my arm down though. lol

And sometimes that's the only way. Fortunately it's the one thing that'll make any cat go instantly limp. lol

With Tiger declawed, I imagine your furniture looks 10 times better than mine. I'm sooo tempted to declaw them some days when they get in a collective snit, but so far they always redeem themselves before I make the appointment. But it wouldn't help with one of my cats, he's a chronic chewer of everything, even wood. He's ruined a fake leather armchair, several books, and a rather large corner of my windowsill.

It is kinda nice, because he likes to "scratch" on my marshall halfstack... If he had claws he wouldn't be a very happy kitty right now. lol

I guess as long as he doesn't get a papercut or a lip splinter. My mom's kinda ticked about some of her books though.

I have two dwarf frogs. I got lucky. They're pink! There are new albino african dwarf frogs on the market now, and I got a few from my LFS not knowing exactly what they were. I got home and looked them up and FREAKED out, because I thought they were albino clawed frogs (illegal in CA). Nope they are definitely ADFs and SOOOOO freaking cute. I named them Pinky and The Brain. Pinky's got red eyes and no spots. The Brain is pink with the normal ADF spotting, just a lot lighter. He has black eyes, so I suppose he's not a true albino. Anyway, they are my other pets and I LOVE them. They are so much fun to watch.

I love the names of your frogs, I remember that show! I didn't know clawed frogs were illegal. Wow. Guess it's 'cause the only frogs I ever had were pond frogs I caught from the creek. But the albino ADFs sound cute. I'm a sucker for pink.
