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.
Love this, only 2 had came off in two weeks. My cat only took a day to get use to it. Now she doesn't even notice it. My new furniture is protected, thank goodness. Gotten ton of compliments, been sharing with all cat lovers.
Barely arrived today. Was pretty simple. Easier with 2 people. 1 preps nails while other inserts on cats toes. Be very careful with the glue. After the first nail and seeing how these colorful nails look on our BOY cats. We couldn't stop laughing during the whole setup. Less then 5 minutes each cat. Time for bed, do the test. Foot under covers and barely move. The grey cat loves to stick his nails deep into our toes. Nothing. Can feel his little feet grabbing but no nails. Tomorrow is the final test, let out into backyard to see if can climb the fence. These boys are only 4 months old and we don't want them going out front due to traffic and bad neighbors. Plenty of toys, cat tree, and other fun cat things. Typically they only want to go out front if we are out there. Otherwise they are very happy rolling on the ground and laying in the sun. Wish we would have remembered soft paws sooner. We will always be sure to stay stocked up on them now.
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!
Prep work - if your cats are as un-trusting of you as mine are of me, you'll need to wrap their entire body in a towel or blanket. Literally with just their head and front claws poking out.
Implementation - Dump out whichever claws you want to use and have them ready. It's easier if you have an assistant here but not impossible without one. Either you or your assistant will fill the claw about 1/3 -1/2 of the way with the glue. Press lightly into kitty's paw so the nail comes out and then just slide the nail cover right on. For my cats, it was easier today without their nails clipped, because the end of the nail will slide all the way in the cover and adhere to the glue. Hold on to kitty tight or they will run away. After this process I lost all trust for about a day. It's fine, they are dramatic and will forgive you.
Aftermath - Once claws are on, my cats walked funny for about an hour. They got used to them and stopped the robot walk, and now after 2 weeks don't notice them at all. Occasionally mine will bite at the nails in order to try and pry them off - but to no avail! That glue is some strong stuff. Out of the two cats, have only had one nail fall off in these 2 weeks.
Thank you for saving my furniture! I no longer have to worry about my new leather barstools. Will continue to buy again and again, these are now a MUST for my household.
My kitty is 3 years old and 10.4 lbs. he scratched my leather sofa and messed up every corner. I bought medium size. I filled glue to 1/3 of nail. It stays on my baby’s nails for 2 weeks already. My kitty used to it in 5 minutes. The nails are soft and pretty. I love it. Make sure use gloves when apply the glue to the nails. There are some glue got on my fingers, I have to separate my two fingers. Lol.
These are great! I inherited a 15 year old cat who seems to prefer scratching random parts of my carpet vs the many cat scratch pads I have bought her. She’s on the larger size, and despite some squirming and growling she let me put them on. They fit great and are easy and fast to apply. She did tear off several caps within a few days, but I sort of blame my inexperience applying them. I put on a second batch 2 weeks later and so far so good.
Ordered size SMALL rainbow pack for my 13yo 8lb cat. My cat is an aggressive scratcher and successfully shredded our last set of furniture. New furniture is protected from her and they do give her a little more traction jumping up on things from the hardwood floors. I had the help of a friend- she held the cat while I applied caps, these went on pretty quickly on pre trimmed claws. She did better during application than she does just getting them trimmed. I added these to all 4 paws. She has dealt with them well and seemed to feel weird in them but quickly got used having the caps on her nails. She still paws at her cat tree but with no devastating results I am so mad I didn't buy these a decade ago.
First things first, this seller responded in a very timely manner and my product arrived pretty darn fast. Packaging was such that it protected the product, while in route, very well. The product was very easy to use. The hardest part was getting my cats to sit still for it. But they were adorable afterwards and I was so glad to be free of their claws snagging at my skin. Thank you so much! I'll be back for more!
I am really grateful for this product. My cat was destroying my home...Not just clawing furnishings, but climbing drapes, screens and wall hanging. Since getting these on, he paws these things and treads, still but it creates no damage. Putting them on it not too bad, recommend wearing plastic gloves and not over filling the nail cap. Still, you can find your fingers sticking to things. My cat did manage to get one of 10 off in the first hour (he was pretty proud of himself and used that claw to scratch everything). Although he was annoyed by them at first, he adjusted fairly quickly. There is so much more peace in the house now...I am not having to put him away or reprimand him constantly, so he is much happier cat. So far after a month only one has popped off. Ideally a 2 person job, but I managed solo.
