Give Your Cat Soft Claws!

When we first got our kitten one of the first questions that we pondered was whether or not to get him declawed. Until recently I never truly knew what that meant. After doing some research about declawing I knew that there was no way I was going to put him through that.
Did you know that when a cat is declawed not only do they remove the nail, but because the nail is adhered to the bone they must remove the first joint attached to every nail. I don’t know about you but I wouldn’t be very happy if I was missing my knuckle on my fingers either. Just the thought makes me cringe! Declawing in some countries is illegal because they believe that it is inhumane!
So what are we to do if we have a cat, and don’t want our kids or our furniture scratched? Luckily for us there is a safe alternative to declawing that not only makes your cats paws soft, but can make they have a little colored flare!
SoftClaws for Cats
Soft Claws are little vinyl caps invented by a veterinarian that fit over your cat’s nails so that they cannot scratch you, your kids, or even your furniture! Of course the colors they offer are a major plus (and absolutely adorable!), but what they do is even more amazing. They are easy to put on too! All you do is cut the cap if needed to fit your cats nails, add the included glue, and press onto your cats nails. I did this while he was sleeping and he was perfectly happy! I received clear in the kitten size, and blue in the small size for when he gets bigger. Here is a picture of his paw with Soft Claws!

In my opinion the clear ones look like little LED bulbs. Since I put the Soft Claws on while our kitty was sleeping he didn’t really notice them. On their website they say that each set should last approximately 4-6 weeks, but they also state that it takes a while for some cats to get used to having them on and will pull them off at first. Carbon didn’t really start to pull them off until we went on a 2 day vacation without him, and when we came back he had pulled off 3 of them. Soft Claws says on their website that typically the second box of Soft Claws will last longer than the first as your cat will have gotten acclimated to the Soft Claws.

So what will your cat think of Soft Claws? Soft Claw are painless to your kitty, and are non-toxic! They can also extend and retract their nails like normal. Also when cats shed their nails the caps will just come off, so no extra work on your part to get them off, or worry about their normal shedding. Think of it this way, at least I do, they are very similar to fake nails which for most of us girls do not hurt but they take a little while to get used to. So yes, at first your cat may not be happy or understand why he has caps on his nails but will learn to love them!

I highly recommend Soft Claws to anyone that has cats or kittens, especially with kids around. They make your cats paws soft and gentle and it is amazing! My husband and I have decided that this is one of the few products that will be purchasing for the remainder of the cats life. They are an absolute must in my family!
