To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
If I could go back, I would do more research and reading about these before attempting to adhere them to my kitty's nails. First off, once applied, they don't allow for the claw to retract correctly, which can't possibly be comfortable.
Secondly, and the worst for us, is that when I tried to apply the tip, the glue oozed out a bit, so the tip stuck to my finger when i tried to let go. This meant the tip was no longer on the claw, and left glue on his claw, so when i let go of his paw, the claw went back into its sheath and became GLUED IN! This lasted for a couple of days while he chewed on his foot and tried to release the claw. It was awful and i felt like the worst cat mom in history.
Granted, the glued claw issue could be chalked up to user error, but I don't recommend these. It was just too traumatic for both me and my kitty man. We'll stick with regular trims and scratching posts, thanks.
This is the worst product I have ever purchased on amazon. They neglect to tell you that the adhesive tube has a head you have to clip off with scissor or a knife, and as soon as you do the adhesive comes pouring out (you don’t have to squeeze...the adhesive is an extremely fast moving, fast binding liquid) and will get all over your fingertips/hands. Good luck getting it off! It’s utterly impossible once it is on your skin, so now I get to wander around indefinitely with this adhesive stuck to my fingers because of horrible product design. I can’t imagine how uncomfortable this would be if a small amount got stuck on a cat’s skin. It’s just grossly negligent to sell this adhesive for this use, it’s unfair to everyone involved.
The product also appears to be a knock off based on the packaging once it arrives. I assume many of the positive reviews are fake.
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.
Got these to use on my 3 cats who like to scratch our couch. Would not recommend this product. The glue is literally super glue. I didn't get the nail cap placed right before it dried and my cat pulled it off which ripped the nail straight to the bone. He doesn't seem to be in pain, but I will never buy this product again or recommend anyone use it.
To be clear I have no problem with the seller. The product was as advertised, it is just a very bad product. I have been trying to get these things off my cat for three days, he is miserable and I will probably have to take him to the vet. I used 1/4 the amount of glue called for and only one has come off. Think carefully before putting these on your pet. I wish I had never done it. I gave it 5 stars for adhesion because they have certainly adhered, so much much that they wont come off. It took 3 months for them all to get off.
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.
What a nightmare trauma! I don't believe the 4 and 5 star reviews. My cat allows me to trim his nails without a problem. These nails were hard to put on resulting in my fingers getting stuck in my cats fur. Thank God be has forgive me!!!! DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY OR HARM YOUR CAT!!!
Don’t do this! First of all everything is tiny so it’s extremely hard to use when your cat isn’t basically sedated. I used these on my cat and they are supposed to naturally fall off. Well mine didn’t, they stayed on my cat for TWO MONTHS! The adhesion is grate if you wanna glue a brick to the wall though... I eventually got worried and had to pull them off of her myself (poor girl). Inside the claw caps her claws continued to grow and the thickness didn’t allow them to poke through the end and this caused her a lot of discomfort. Not to mention they filled with cat litter and dirt. They caused her a lot of pain and I will never do that to her again!
