Keeps our cat from scratching! Was very close to scheduling a de-claw procedure as nothing would keep our 1 yr old cat from scratching my curtains and dining room chairs! I ordered these as a final try before having her declawed because I really feel bad about the procedure, but at the same time couldn't have her constantly scratching up our stuff. My kids love them and think they are cute. The cat doesn't mind us putting them on at all, and has never offered to bother them. Occasionally one or two may fall off after 2-3 weeks but just pop on another and good to go. Usually they stay on about a month but our cat is very active. On a more relaxed cat they'd probably stay on much longer.
These are ridiculously hard to put on a cat... Especially one that you're putting them on to keep from clawing everyone. Pretty sure the glue is burning her skin, which is just your typical nail glue btw. I think I read a review here or somewhere else of someone linking to a better glue to use with these. Think I'm going to look into that.
I only got 4 on, & some probably weren't fully on. However, two still remain a week or two later. I'm sure if I managed to keep her still long enough (without hurting her) & got them all on, they'd stay. Just don't trust that glue, nor do I think it should be used on animals. That stuff is already toxic on humans! I mean have you seen what it can do to your nails? Buhhh!
Great product otherwise. The rubber is nice. The covers were neatly packaged in individual baggies by color (pink had its own bag, blue had its own bag, & so on). It also came with 5 little "bottles" of the horrid glue, which seem like they can be used per full set application (I mean I applied it to 6 nails that never made it on my cat & still had a good bit left from my first, & only used, bottle).
I will say this though, if you're adement about using the glue: I don't think it needs nearly the amount mentioned in the instructions. That seemed like way too much, & resulted in the nails taking longer to dry, then just stuck to me instead of her! Not to mention the more you use, the more squishes out onto your poor baby's cuticles! Just use a good bit on the inside edges, let sit for like 10 seconds, then apply. Your kitty will more than likely attempt to run and/or claw your face off.... & probably cry in pain. For getting it off your skin (because that will happen, unless your cat is like sedated or something) use acetone, or nail polish remover. Or, if you're lazy like me, just pick at it until it falls off.
But I honestly recommend asking your vet to apply them for you, with different glue/adhesive, as they're the best with this kind of thing... Namely, keeping your kitty calm & knowing how to prevent hurting them.
Seller: please replace this glue... Our kitties deserve better.
I’m giving 4 stars because they were easy to put on but my cat hated them because she’s a brat. She chewed them and ripped them all off besides 3, she can’t get 3 of them off. We bought them because she tears up the whole house in the middle of the night.
I’m a fan of these they were easy to apply and seem to be a great alternative to declawing. Saves my furniture and now my cat can’t scratch me or my baby so I’m happy about that!! Now the cat isn’t super excited about them but I’m hoping he gets used to them. They’ve been on him for about an hour so we will see how they hold up & if he gets better. For the first 15 minutes all he did was lick and bite at them.
Update ::: he got used to them pretty quickly. Only one has fallen off in a month span so they stay on good!
I can't recommend these and I won't put them on my cat again. I followed the instructions, and at first, I was ecstatic bc they were starting on for a long time. However, my husband noticed a smell coming from one of my cats paws and he would cry if I touched it. So I took a closer look and the glue had leaked out and dried to the fur between his toes. Just one claw but it had pulled his toe open as his nail grew out and it was bleeding, swollen and infected. After several attempts, I managed to snip the fur that was glued to the nail cap and cut the cap off with cuticle scissors. Lucky for me, my cat doesn't try to bite or scratch me but not every cat is like that. I cleaned his paw several times a day and it's finally back to normal. But he was in pain for who knows how long and just the risk of that happening again is enough for me not to put those caps on again. So, while they work great at saving your carpet or furniture, for me, the risk of injury to my cat is too high. I have put caps on my cats nails in the past as well, and this has never happened before. It's possible it was my error, maybe I put too much glue in that one, but the way these caps work is they're supposed to come off when the nail sheds. My cats nails stopped shedding with the caps on. I cut half of them off myself and then a day or two later, I trimmed his nails and they started to shed normally again.
We recently moved and our 2 cats began scratching at furniture and flooring. I bought these hoping they would help, they did! They work great, you do need to be a little careful when applying-it is applied with superglue, after all. My cats got used to them and we took some funny videos of kitty's with painted nails walking fun when we first applied them!
These work great but My only issue is the glue tubes are one time use! That means I can only do 10 caps (20 if I do both cats, if I'm lucky) and that's it. Awesome, boy what if I need to fix a lost cap or two? I have one cat that is a vigorous groomer and tends to pop caps off early. That means I either wait for all of his caps to come off which could be a long time, and I am damage furniture in the house, which is the reason for the caps. Or, I have to open a new container of glue to replace 2 to 4 caps, and then the rest of the tube is wasted. It seems like a design flaw to me. Why not sell this product with a larger bottle of glue there’s a small tip on it it fits into the tips of the caps. You know, kind of like superglue sells it? Or even these Little bottles with just the pointy tips rather than having to screw these pointy tips on and then wasting an entire little bottle. If you can’t tell there’s some thing and rather annoyed about as I’ve wasted several small bottles and have lots of tips left.
other than that they work beautifully they stay on well and they keep my cats from scratching up the couch the carpets and the walls, which is the whole purpose for us getting them in the first place.
