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.
Bought this because I just got a new sofa and was worried that my 1 year old cat tried to tear it off like it did to my old one.
It was easy to apply. I trimmed his claws first. Put a little glue in ten caps before applying them so that the glue begin to dry a bit before the application. Press a little on the cap when on a claw to make the glue spread inside the cap.
I watched my cat for at least 30 mins after the application, he was trying to bite them at first, even manage to take one off. I just put a little more glue and put it back on. I distract him by playing with him and giving him some treats.
It's been 2 days now and it seems my cat doesn't notice them anymore.
Be warned that it is a strong glue! Kind of like Crazy glue. Try not to spill any on yours fingers!
I'm giving 4 stars just cause I don't know how long they will last. Great product overall for the price.
My girl has seasonal allergies which we manage with medication but every once in a while she goes at it with her scratching to the point she has scabs all over her neck and ears. We got these to give her an option to scratch but not as harshly as she was doing. We invite her for some extra scritches and scratches when she's having a hard time which she loves and the caps have stopped her from tearing up her skin. I do have some complaints though. The booklet doesn't mention how long they should last for. Secondly, there's no adhesive remover included so if you're not careful you could very easily glue their toes together.
If you're having trouble with getting you cat to cooperate. Put them on their back between you and the arm of the couch. My moms cats HATE me but by putting them in that position they have no angle to really move and if they do wiggle out where I can no longer safely do the trim they get put right back into position. Nail clipping is 30 seconds for all 4 paws when I put them in that position. If you're buying these for a kitten touch their paws from a young age so they get used to it. For adult cats gently brush your finger of their paws if they're relaxing. Get them used to it. I adopted a cat at 3 years and there was some struggle but he learned to trust me when handling his paws.
The shipping was very fast so I will rate high for that reason. I usually buy the higher quality, far more expensive Soft Claws. You only get 40 in a pack and they cost over $20, so this seemed like a nice alternative and would save me money. I read reviews prior to purchasing because they were on the lower price scale. Everyone warned to size down so I did. I usually get a size small for my cats, even though they're adults (they're so tiny). The sizing difference is crazy. I ordered small and look at the size in my photos compared to the small I usually buy. I think that even if I were to size down to XS, they'd still be too large, unfortunately. Size at least 1 size down, if not 2. They're also much softer so I can see my cats chewing through them. I havent tried them because they're too big so I can't rate the longevity of the glue. They also smell very toxic like cheap plastic, so I'm afraid to even try these on my cats. Perhaps if they were aired out for a day or two they'd be okay.
I wish they were the proper size so I could give a full review and wouldn't have to return them.
These are a great solution to save my furniture! I was so tired of my cat scratching alllll of the time and refuse to declaw her. These are a safe and easy way to save my sanity and my couch. We got a size small, and had to coax her with treats to sit still. I recommend having one person hold the cat and feed them treats and the other get the glue ready and put on the nail caps.
I love all the bright colors and am excited for them to fall off so I can put on a new set!
Well there are ups and downs to this product. Ups are they work when it comes to protecting furniture. Downs are almost impossible to put on your cat unless your cat likes when your playing with their nails. And 2 I would recommend wearing some type of gloves because I got nail glue all over my fingers and it takes days to get it off.
I got these to save my couches. They work amazing a little bit tricky at 1st but my cats got the fanciest paws around now.... And I have nice couches. I would definitely recommend these.... Amazing alternative to declawing
Some were unusable and defected due to the them being paper thin or just way too small. Otherwise, they are decent value for the money. My cats chewed off the ends but they still seem to function okay.
they are great for the price. Definitely cheaper quality than the more expensive alternatives (soft paws), however the glue is sturdy and they last a similar amount of time. It comes with lots of glue so no worry of it drying out/not having enough. I recommend to wait until your kitties nap before applying :)
