Please don’t buy these for your cats. Kitty caps are supposed to naturally fall off in 6 weeks, and these have been glued to my cats nails for almost 3 months. Their nails are so overgrown and I’m going to have to bring them to the vet to get them taken off. Just do you fur babies a favour and don’t buy them.
I want to preface this by saying it will most likely be hard to get them on your cat. Cats don't like it very much when you clip their nails and play with their paws. This being said, I have a lot of practice and was able to get them on easily and they have by far been the most durable soft claws my cat has had. The glue is good and has held longer than any others. Usually he would lose a few soft claws by the end of the month but one month later and he still has all of them this time. Its important to know that colors are random, so there aren't 10 of any single color. If you care about your cat having matching claws front and back then these aren't for you.
My girl has seasonal allergies which we manage with medication but every once in a while she goes at it with her scratching to the point she has scabs all over her neck and ears. We got these to give her an option to scratch but not as harshly as she was doing. We invite her for some extra scritches and scratches when she's having a hard time which she loves and the caps have stopped her from tearing up her skin. I do have some complaints though. The booklet doesn't mention how long they should last for. Secondly, there's no adhesive remover included so if you're not careful you could very easily glue their toes together.
If you're having trouble with getting you cat to cooperate. Put them on their back between you and the arm of the couch. My moms cats HATE me but by putting them in that position they have no angle to really move and if they do wiggle out where I can no longer safely do the trim they get put right back into position. Nail clipping is 30 seconds for all 4 paws when I put them in that position. If you're buying these for a kitten touch their paws from a young age so they get used to it. For adult cats gently brush your finger of their paws if they're relaxing. Get them used to it. I adopted a cat at 3 years and there was some struggle but he learned to trust me when handling his paws.
These worked great to prevent my cat from scratching a sensitive spot. She has been over grooming an area on her neck for a couple years (seasonally), but when I put a cone on her she is still able to scratch the spot with her back paws. These caps were a bit difficult to put on, as to be expected when touching a cats paws, but I was able to swaddle her comfortably with just her back paws sticking out. They have been on for about 2 weeks and my cat is cone free and scratch free! Her neck looks great and she has an adorable little paw-dicure on her back toes!
These are wonderful. So easy to get on our cat. Luckily she is a softie and stayed easily for us to do it. I’ve Added photos to show how good they are. Although my husband who wanted to try to do one, put one claw on the wrong way round lol cat isn’t bothered though and it gave us a giggle. Two days and they are still on, Cat is happy and no more carpet pulling.
I had been using the expensive ones from the store, but with the reviews on these thought I would give them a try. Within 3 days the ends of almost all of them have been chewed off. This never happened with the other ones. They are also big. The mediums I bought are longer than the large ones in the store. Love the colours though.
Love the variety of colors, the sizing is a little big, I got medium for my 11 lbs cat, that other companies the med fits nicely. I just put less glue and more careful with the depth of the claw whe nI put the claw cover on it not to go to far.
I got these to save my couches. They work amazing a little bit tricky at 1st but my cats got the fanciest paws around now.... And I have nice couches. I would definitely recommend these.... Amazing alternative to declawing
