I would work the bath angle. She will be forced to uncurl and give you access to those feet. Just make sure to keep her head above water obviously. She should be relaxed for a little while after if you aren't comfy doing it in the bath. I tend to cut demi's nails after her bath before she starts to squirm all over the place by getting one leg in between my fingers n clipping. I don't think a bath will set you back too far trust wise. She prob needs a good foot bath after a couple days of running anyway. Oh and when all else fails distract her with food. Mealworms or fruit...somethin she likes to eat. Gl!
