Let me start off by saying I almost NEVER review things, but I felt this needed one. I have the most chill cat on the planet. He is nearly 12 years old, and has been very well behaved up until a few years ago. He never clawed until a few years after we got the first brand new living room furniture we've ever had-ever. So imagine my surprise when I started seeing small snags and puncture marks in my new leather sofa. So, I covered the accessible corner with a blanket thinking that would stop the little show of power. NOPE. He just moved to other furniture and the back of my loveseat. Now, I like my cat, but was seriously considering for the first time ever sending his destructive furry butt to get declawed. I have never once considered doing this to an animal, but it was either that or he would become outside only cat when up until now he's been indoor only his whole life. We live on a busy corner and there are massive racoons and coyotes around so we didn't really want to kick his geriatric butt outdoors. Then my cousin posted on Facebook about the caps. I wondered why I was just now hearing about them so I ordered them. Read the reviews and decided to err on the side of caution and get the XS size since everyone said they ran big, and Bailey the cat only weighs 7#. So, they arrived last night, and I picked out some black ones since I didn't think he's be too appreciative of pink sparkly ones, plus I wanted to be sure I could easily see if they fell off or something. Please let me repeat- he is the most chill cat on the planet- I have been trimming his claws for years and he doesn't care one bit. So I trimmed his claws, tried a cap or two on without glue to make sure the XS would fit. They do fit, but whoever said they run big either doesn't know how big their cat is, or received the wrong size. I should have gotten the S but they are totally fine. I only did Bailey's front paws, and it took maybe 5 minutes- by myself. Did I mention my cat is chill? He cried a little, but a quick adjustment to his sitting position cleared that up. He looked at me like he was going to kill me in my sleep when I was done, but only gave each paw a sniff ad a quick shake and laid back down for another 20 hour nap. So, in summary- get the size it says to, and save your furniture for less than the price and kitty anguish of a declawing.
These keep my furniture safe! My cat loves to scratch on furniture and these things have saved my new leather kitchen chairs. My cat does occasionally chew on them and pull them off, but i just put another one on when she does. They stay on well aside from her ripping 1 or 2 off every couple of weeks. They are easy to put on. My cat weighs about 8lbs and the extra small fit best. The ones in the photo have been on for a while and are growing out but still staying on and protecting my furniture!
UPDATE: The seller has reached out to me and is sending a replacement product to make up for the missing pieces. I have tried the product now and it does work nicely. I’m using them on a 12 week old kitten and had to trim the xs caps down a little bit to fit and it’s much easier to apply with help to have another hand to hold the cat down with.
I actually haven’t tried the product yet, (so will update once I do) but I received the product with only *95* Pieces so that was a let down. I was gonna start with the sparkly pink when I realized I only had 5 of them... every other color had 10.
Kittens (esp. rescued strays who don't have Momma cat training) use their claws because they are babies and are not attentive to interacting yet or socializing. In a few weeks, at about 12 -14 weeks, your kitten will gain control of clawing and for the most part won't scratch you anymore. Wear slacks/jeans to protect your legs, cover up your arms. My legs look like I've run through barbed wire - hot bath soaks, moisturizer, retinol and an antibiotic ointment - in time they'll heal. I clip Georgie's nails regularly and apply antibiotic ointment; another matter where he's learning to cooperate. I never applied the nail tips. Better to spend the time playing with Georgie or watching him and Maggie (my dog) chase each other. A well loved kitten will grow into a devoted pet - he never extends his claws anymore when he plays with me or with Maggie. Such a delight, I love him!
My cat keeps chewing through them, I had bought cheaper ones before and they worked great and she didn’t chew through them but nearly every nail she has managed to chew through and then I can’t get them off so they just sit half of the nail at the bottom. As for the glue, everytime you open it it’ll spray you, your surroundings and your skin, putting on the little funnel attachment it will leak from the sides so more gets on your skin, also if you overfill it (no indication until it’s all over you) then it’ll get over you and your cats skin. I would not recommend this brand of them to anyone.
Cats generally don't like their toes touched, they won't like the smell of the superglue. I had to wait until my kitties were relaxed and sleeping and be patient. Don't overfill with glue, only a couple drops will do. After putting glue in the caps squeeze the cap and if glue comes to the top dab it with paper towel. Wipe off any glue that's on the rim of the cap. If the glue touches their skin it will burn, they will run away, scratch you and likely bite it off getting glue in their mouth. Once you put it on hold it in place for a couple seconds to make sure it sticks before letting the kitty go.
The caps come in nice colors, they are soft and they last a long time on.
I'm giving 4 stars only because I've bought small size before & always have to trim them to fit my 14 lb cat. This seller offers xs "kitten size" & they are the same size as small, I still have to trim them. After trimming them they fit well, my cats are patient as I apply them & I watch them for a few minutes afterwards to be sure they aren't chewing on wet glue. The covers stay on for weeks! However if your cat isn't patient when getting their claws trimmed dont even bother with these! It will only aggravate them. Never restrain your animal against their will! As soon as they start to get annoyed I let them go & just do the rest later. I can usually get 3 or 4 claws clipped & capped at a time before they get vexed. It's a process but worth it for my rugs & furniture, & the colorful claws look so cute! Declawing is not an option so these are a lifesaver for me!
I wouldn’t know what it’s like to use this product. I got thinking it would fit my kitten(who’s 10 weeks old) but when I read the package it said kittens of 16 weeks or older.... May fit kittens of 12 weeks if faster growing.... like first off you should put that somewhere other then saying it’ll fit kittens... so hoping my kitten grows within the next two weeks to be able to put these on I wasted my money. I needed something I can use on her now. She scratches everything the dogs the ferret me my kid my husband(but he doesn’t care) my couch EVERYTHING!!!! So this is useless for the next 2-6 weeks. Kind of like a reimbursement you get when you buy something and mail in a rebate. Which is a waste of time. Not to mention when I opened the bag of caps and took them out to count them they had an oily coating on them, I don't know what it is but I wouldn't that on my cat not knowing what is on that cap. Is it worth the return since it was only 6.99$ or do I just throw it away and hope my kitten grows out of this stage of attacking everyone.
We planned to use these on our 14 week old kitten. The size chart was correct - these appear to fit him perfectly. Because of the size (certainly not the fault of the seller), they were a bit hard to get the glue into. That was expected and no problem. Getting into the package to get the nail caps was a major struggle, though. I never could get the package open and finally had to cut it open - which mean that I had to be careful since all 100 caps were loose inside the bag. I sealed the unused caps in a snack bag. I tested one of the tubes of glue that came with it, and I found that what I had been told by others was correct - the glue that comes with the package was very watery. I don't know how I could possibly re-seal the bottle. Instead, I bought and used another brand of glue and that worked well, as my friends had told me. On the positive side, once I got the caps in place, the kitten did not seem to mind them at all, and they do look attractive. Still, because of difficulty accessing the caps and because of the difficulty in using the supplied glue, I can only rate this product as "okay."
I can't believe these worked. I had to cut them in half for the 7 week old kitten that I found in our garage. The first time I applied them. I didn't use enough glue. As the cat has grown and I've gotten better, they stay on better. Start as soon as possible and rap the cat in a towel with just his paw out. I don't wait 5 minutes between each nail. I keep going back and pinching each cover after applying new cover and then pet the cat for five minutes after applying the last cover. I use to have to apply 3 or 4 new covers each Sunday. Now it's just 1 or 2. The cat is now 4 months old and is just now getting nails that are big enough to clip before applying the XS covers.
