Here is a picture of my cat Zebra wearing Soft Paws.
The simple solution to destructive scratching. Developed by a veterinarian, Soft Paws are vinyl nail caps that glue on to your cat's claws.
I can not tell you how happy I am to have Soft Paws. I have struggled with clawed furniture for two years now. I refuse to declaw as it is very painful and dangerous. When my vet told me about these, I immediately ordered them. They work great, and my cats do not seem to know they are there. I am so glad someone came up with this wonderful idea! Thank you!
I just received the Soft Paws on Monday, and had my son hold the cats for me while I glued. As expected, my female put up a bigger fuss than the male. I have only lost 1 on each cat since Monday...which I thought was ok, since this was the first time...figuring maybe I didn't get enough glue on them, as a possiblilty. As of right now, they are both doing just fine and have adjusted quite well. My female is the couch scratcher and I finally gave up trying to stop her. She is about 3 yrs old. My male used a scratching post, but I had to put them on him as well, due to the occasional cat fight. I had made an appt for a tendonotomy for the female, but cancelled it. I have worked in vet offices, in the clinic of the Humane Society and have always thought the declawing was barbaric. I can't believe it is so accepted on a daily basis. I saw a cat lose his mind in pain, in his cage, and had to be put down after the declaw. It was awful, and have hated it ever since. I also find cropping ears equally as barbaric. I owned a Miniature Schnauzer for 11 years and she did just fine without her ears cropped. I wish this country would proclaim declawing and ear cropping a crime. Thanks for letting me "vent."

No more scratching on my new couch, no more accidental cat scratches. He was slightly resistant at first, but the picture I am attaching was taken about 3 minutes after application. He looks as snug as a bug in a rug! Thanks for the great product!"
- Gina B., Las Vegas, NVNote: While the vast majority of cats acclimate to the claw covers within minutes, some cats may require an adjustment period. Cats' fastidious natures sometimes cause them to groom the claw covers excessively at first. This may result in one or two of them falling off, but this is no problem. Just check your cat's claws daily, and if a nail cap is missing, simply replace it with another from the package. As a result, the first package may not last as long as subsequent packages. Your cat will become more used to wearing the nail caps over time and require reapplication less often. A good tip is to feed your cat his or her favorite food immediately after applying the Soft Paws®. This serves as a good reward and also diverts attention away from the new nail caps. Some people find it easier to apply the Soft Paws® when their cat is sleepy.
