I spray it with a relaxing cat spray, put it on her for 30 seconds, take it off and give her a treat. I do this about once or twice a week. No problems. Then on the 4th week, while she has the muzzle on, I quickly apply her flea meds. She doesn't expect it, or have time to throw her usual flea application fit.
If you need a product like this it works well. It's softer than the nylon shell kind. The stitching is well done. I use it for my kitty when I need to do his claws. He's a wilder feral cat with some trust issues, so this keeps him calmer through the process.
This mask is great. I have 1 small/regular sized 9lb cat and 2 extral large (20+ lbs, not fat just big, tall & long) cats and the large size cat mask fits all 3 perfectly for its purpose. The front hole is big enough so that the 2 larger cat's noses are uncovered for easy breathing and just small enough that the smaller cats nose and mouth area is covered enough so she cant bite durring bath time.
I would recommend this to anyone who's cat loves to bite while being bathed or while having their nails clipped.
feels awful to put this thing on right, but it's either that or you get rid of the cat, or you get a shock collar, or you deal with the constant meowing of a cat in heat (not a chance in helllll). Anyways I think my cat got pregnant and I won't have to use this thing for awhile..... anyone want a kitten? lol.
My cat would just pull this thing off with her claws, I had to clip her claws down a tad bit (very careful when I do that)
I love my cat : ( she sleeps with me everynight, but holy cow... they just don't respond well to any method of training do they? at least not for meowing at the friggin door.... It's such a struggle mentally especially when you work from home and you need to focus. Teaches you SOMEEE patience I guess but, this cat muzzle comes in handy when you're at your limit................
I stuck mine in a cage (roughly 3-4 times her body size) with the muzzle on, she didn't even try to take it off when she was in the cage.
I only did this punishment for 10 minutes each time, I'd set a timer, and it made her not meow for like 1-3 hours.
I bet if I kept at it it would have eventually worked, but she got outside somehow one time and I haven't heard her meowing since... now I got kittens to deal with I think.
We have a Queen who licks her bvabies too much,can lick a raw spot on them if we dont watch her close,this helped out like nothiong else we could think of...GREAT PRODUCT...btw she gets around the house and can see like its not even on,so dont be worried.
We have sphynx cats and purchased the product to help with mom not over grooming her kittens. Our female is 8lbs and it is not a good fit for her. However I do think this product would be good on a fur baby.
My cat is having an issue with a new addition of another cat. We wanted this to help reduce the chance of them biting each other in a fight when trying to introduce them to each other. The time is short but when the muzzle is put on the cat she is so scared and when she can’t get it off she withdraws with her head dropped and no reaction to anything. Unfortunately, this is so traumatic for the cat I can’t use it. May be useful for short term grooming though.
We rescued a 3 year old surrendered cat. He showed us right away no one was touching his paws. His claws were super long and you could hear them clicking on the kitchen linoleum. I have always cut my cats claws and never had issues with them. He was definitely going to be a challenge. I caught him after he ate. The muzzle went on smoothly- fit him great. Looked comfortable. He was very angry when I sat down with him to start cutting. He tried so hard to bite- the muzzle protected me. I had to get a towel to wrap him to do each paw, because he then tried to claw me away, the muzzle saved me from becoming a bloody mess. The muzzle definitely is durable and strong because he tried so hard to get it off. The job got done, no one (human or cat) got hurt & I kinda saved his life a second time because my husband said if the claws don’t get cut and he scratches the new furniture we will be getting next week, he’s going back to the shelter, although he never scratches the current stuff. I totally recommend this muzzle. I got a large, in blue. My rescue is a very muscular cat around 16-17 lbs. if he breaks out the next time I use it, I’ll definitely write an update but for now it’s great!
Used it the day it came to trim my cat claws. I don't think he liked it but so far it did the job. He tried to bite me but was not able and then he lunged at me and got me on my neck with his claw, did not break the skin. He is 17 lbs and very strong I will be very careful with the muzzle he may find a way to bite through it. The large was almost too small but I was able to fasten it and it did not come off. I will use it again soon and see how it does the second time.
