Great Alternative to Declawing!,
This review is from: Soft Claws for Cats Kitten Natural (Misc.)I just adopted a kitten a couple months ago and quickly grew irritated of her constant scratching. She is an energetic kitten, but it hurt to play with her. I constantly has cuts and scratches all over my body.
I bought these as an alternative to declawing and they have been absolutely great! She did not fight as I put them on, (giving her a treat after every couple i put on helped too I'm sure) and she hasn't tried to lick/bite them off. I will now leave her to wander the entire apartment when I'm gone because I know she cannot cause the damage she did before. Can't say much about durability or how long they remain on as they have only been on for a day.
TIP FOR NEW KITTEN OWNERS: If you get the kitten accustom to playing with their paws, putting these on will be an easy task. When you cuddle with her or when she naps in your lap, softly touch her paws. She will eventually associate touching her paws with relaxation and won't scratch as much when you try to handle them later.
Highly recommended! I will switch to colored ones when she gets older!

Application tips and tricks,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Soft Claws for Cats Kitten Natural (Misc.)In case you are wondering, Soft Paws and Soft Claws are made by the same company. One is marketed to veterinarians and the other is marketed to consumers. They are exactly the same product.
I am very satisfied with my Soft Claws purchase. This is my first experience with the clear (natural) color nail caps. I've tried a variety of the solid colors. Clear nail caps are easier to fill but also more difficult to see when they fall off.
My kitten's paws have been handled a lot and she doesn't mind me placing the nail caps on her. I place the applicator tip all the way into the nail cap, fill until I see it come up the top (don't let it crest), release the glue tube and the glue gets sucked back into the tube. The nail cap now has just the right amount of glue to hold the nail in place. I then go pick up the kitten and place the nail cap on her (no need to clip young kitten nails). It takes less than a second to pop them on. I don't make her sit there for five minutes afterwards like the instructions say. I just let her go. No problem.
The nails stay on until they shed. They don't all shed at once, so we lose a few nail caps per week.
At first, my kitten would get her nail caps stuck in my crocheted blanket and the mesh in her climbing structure. The manufacturer warns of lace and loop rugs. I have not had any problems since I've removed the crocheted blanket and the climbing structure.
I have an agreeable cat. It took less than a few minutes for her to get used to the nail caps and they don't bother her at all. If you don't, then I don't have much advice other than try to massage your cat's paws daily so she's used to being handled. I know some cats will never have the temperament for that, but it's worth a try.
I bought extra applicator tips from the manufacturer. If there is one gripe I have, it's that the applicator tips get clogged. Since I don't want to have to wait until several nail caps have fallen off to conserve applicator tips (while my furniture is being wrecked) or have to keep using pins to unclog them, I opted to buy the applicator tips. It's an additional expense. I wish they'd just include them in the package. Six applicator tips is simply not enough.

these are ok,
This review is from: Soft Claws for Cats Kitten Natural (Misc.)The only problem I have with this is the glue. It is ridiculous. the applicator tips get clogged which is a given considering. But you end up getting gloued to yourself and your cat. Mines not agreeable at all so I have to fight with her the whole time. Ive taken to wrapping her in a blanket save for the paw I'm working on and this helps. The glue also gets on her fur and when the caps come off they end up taking a chunk of her fur too and its painful for her. I feel bad with how much it annoys and hurt her, but I figure it hurts a lot less than having her claws ripped out of her so i'll keep this up until it becomes too much...
I'm going to try clear nail polish and see how that works
