Soft Claws are Colorful Rubber Nail Caps for Cats
Posted on October 23, 2006
We adore cats, but sometimes the little darlings make us a tad peeved when they decide to exercise their claws on some expensive furniture -- or a lovely rug. We don't hold with de-clawing and we're not thrilled with the idea of spraying that repellant stuff everywhere. Then a vet told us about Soft Claws.
Soft Claws are soft rubber claws that fit over your cat's claws. You glue them on and the cat never knows they're there. Each set lasts between 4 to 6 weeks, although we've heard from people who say they last longer. Each kit contains contains 40 nail caps, six applicators tips, two tubes of adhesive, and complete instructions. They come in small, medium and large and are for cats over three weeks old -- we wouldn't use them on kittens, by the way.
The claws come in clear, red, blue and pink. And for Halloween, they've done a set in black and orange, which would look great on a black cat. They retail for $19.99 at DrsFosterandSmith.com. Oh, and yes -- this is for only recommended for pet owners who enjoy doing pet manicures and who have lots of patience. And if you have one of those cats who hates you touching his paws, this is probably not the way to go.
