Default Soft paws for cats

Has anyone used these for their cat? I'm curious if they really work. It's pretty inhumane to declaw and I don't want my furniture shredded.

I know we'll get another cat but this time they all want a kitten (all have always been adult rescues).

Never have used them. When we had a kitten, she was confined unless we were watching her. When she was spayed, I had her declawed. Sorry, but I also did not want my furniture shredded. The kitten did absolutely fine. She is an inside cat, and can jump amazing heights with no problem. Only front claws done.

Of course, some cat shelters have cats that are already declawed?? I know our shelter here in Joliet does.

Yes, I used them on my childhood cat when my mother threatened to have him declawed. They work really well, as long as you are able to cut the cat's claws without too much trouble, these are really no different.

Clip the cat's claws and then apply the caps to the nails. If you're worried about furniture, you really only need to do the front paws. Once they are applied, all you need to do is check once a week that they are all still on. The claw grows out and eventually the cap comes off when the outer shell of the claw is shed. Simply clip the claw again, and reapply.

I used the caps for the last 4 years of Peanut's life before he died of old age just shy of 18 and never had a problem with them. It only took him an hour or so before he got used to them.

I would absolutely recommend them, in fact I showed one of my neighbours how to use them when she mentioned declawing, and she has been using them for 2 years.

I have used these for my one cat as well, they do work!!! Just have to maintain as the nails grow, and the fun part is you can purchase them in a rainbow of colors. the main color i used was a bright hot pink, then orange for halloween, red or green or both, for xmas.. dark blue for new years (providing the nails grew out enough at that point) pastels for easter. Can even purchase them on ebay, just follow the directions to measure the claws and your good to go.
