Just wanted to thank you from the bottom of my (and
my kitty's) heart! we are so delighted with "soft
paws". We were searching for an acceptable (humane)
alternative to declawing. My cat's health and happiness
come before my new furniture. However, it is nice
to be able to enjoy both! Soft Paws are everything
that you describe and more. My cat allowed me to outfit
her in her purple paws without issue. It took about
3 minutes to apply them and they remain on all 10
nails even after the first application (10 days ago).
Thank you again for caring enough about animals to
support and endorse such an important product. I will
surely recommend Soft Paws to anyone in need of the
perfect alternative to declawing (an unacceptable

I am a new cat owner [rescued my little Sparky off
the streets] just 4 months ago. Before that I NEW
NOTHING about cats as I considered myself a dog person.
I also have a Labrador Retriever who I adopted from
the Guiding Eyes for the blind 4 and a half years
I found you thru a lady who lives in my building
who has a cat and swore by your product. The both
of you saved me from doing what I anguished the most
and that was declawing little Sparky. And thanks to
your GREAT product I don't have to. I put the soft
paws on Sparky two days ago and he doesn't even bother
with them. Which is really surprising. He has yet
to take one off. Needless to say I will be ordering
more of this marvelous product so that we can have
a long lasting non destructive relationship. I love
Sparky to death as he is very friendly and gets along
great with people and with Teal [my dog]. I can't
believe someone abandoned this guy in the streets.
I believe that your product will save thousands of
cats as I'm sure that many people DECLAW them , put
their cats up for adoption or just simply get rid
off them because of the damage they can cause to the
furniture and or other animals in the same household
with their claws. Thanks again for saving me from
that pain of declawing him! PS
4 days and little Sparky still doesn't bother with

Thanks for a great product and super customer

I also rarely write about products, but I just have
to share what a wonderful job this product does for
my cats. I am a breeder and a Specialty Judge with
UFO (United Feline Organization). I think Soft Paws
is such a terrific idea, and such an easy alternative
to declawing a cat. I have a household pet that used
to scratch endlessly where she shouldn't. I talked
with my vet and discovered Soft Paws. She has worn
the pink soft paws ever since. Her name is Twinkle
Toes - Twinkie, and she's a black & white rescued
kitty. She is known nationally for her pink toes.
She was the Best Household Pet in the Southern Region
in UFO last year, and the 8th Household Pet Nationally.
She is currently the Best Household Pet again in the
Southern Region and number 3 Nationally so far this
Thanks for such a wonderful product. I recommend them
at all the shows I attend! I sure hope it helps....saving
one kitty at a time from declawing.

Meow! Mom said I could send you a letter. I got pretty
Pink nails on! They are really bright! I like them,
(but they make typing a little hard). I got to go
for a car ride to the vet to help pick them out. Mommy
bought me a toy for being such a good girl. Everyone
at the vet likes me! Now the new furniture won't get
hurt and neither will I. (I didn't want to be declawed).
Both Mom and I think it would be great if you put
our feelings on your website. Mom and Dad left me
all alone for a whole week with the new furniture.
I was good and the furniture is fine. A nice Lady
did come check on me but I'm a scardy cat and hid.

is Kitty's mom, Laura. Thanks so much for such a great
I just placed my second order of Soft Paws. These
are absolutely wonderful. Travis, my black Persian,
thinks he looks sooooo cool with his red toes and
had no problem adapting to them. I found that playing
with a string after putting them on gets him used
to them very quickly. I'm recommending Soft Paws to
all my cat lover friends for all their furred children.
Next time ole Travis will be sporting the shocking
pink ones hahaha. Thanks so much!

Thanks for this great product. I have been telling
everyone I know about it! I just got new furniture,
and of course I am happy it's safe. However, there's
another plus. My 6-year old, 14 pound "baby"
likes to knead me. Now instead of little knives digging
into my skin, it's gentle and painless! And it makes
him happy. Cool!
- Jenny, Braun
I never knew that declawing was a brutal operation.
I had called a Veterinarian to ask about it, and had
the good fortune of contacting one who refused to
do it. He told me it was excruciating for the animals,
that they howl in pain for hours or days after the
operation. He recommended Soft Paws and helped me
with the first application. I am so grateful that
I did not put my beloved cat through the torture of
declawing. Soft Paws are convenient, humane, and to
my delight, easy to order on the Internet!
- M. Larkin, Bel-Air California
I just wanted to thank you for selling such a fabulous
product. When my husband told me about Soft Paws I
was skeptical. I thought, if these work so great why
have I never heard of them? Luckily, they are extremely
affordable so we decided to give them a shot. We have
three cats who love to claw furniture, radio speakers,
carpet, etc. They were very easy to apply and the
cats were used to them within only a couple of minutes!!!
This product is a MIRACLE and I am not saying that
lightly! We can now keep all the doors in our home
open and live like normal people. My cats are fine
with Soft Paws on; they still behave the same way
they ordinarily would. (They still scratch, but don't
damage!) This is a perfect solution to saving your
furniture and/or having your animal declawed. I LOVE
THIS PRODUCT!! Again, I can't stress enough how easy
these are to apply and how the cats don't even notice
they are on. I can't praise you enough! p.s. I love
the pink ones! Thank you so, so much and if you ever
need a reference - use me!
- Mandy Randolph
I ordered Soft Paws about a month and a half ago for
my kitten, thinking it is never too early to get her
into good habits. They arrived within 2 days and after
a little bit of a struggle the first time, Macy now
tolerates me putting them on her very well. I wanted
to let you know how great I think this product is.
. kudos to you for an outstanding product and
great customer service and information availability.
Can you also make something to cover her teeth? :)
Please feel free to use my comments on your testimonials
section. This is the best cat product I have ever
- Jennifer Allred
I didn't expect to say this but I am actually impressed.
My girlfriend tried something like this a few years
ago but the cat didn't like it and she didn't keep
up with it. I am moving in with her in a couple of
months but she has thousands of dollars worth of damage
to her apartment caused by one sweet little cat. I
told my girlfriend I wouldn't move in with her unless
she tried Soft Paws again and kept up with them. When
we first put them on the cat didn't like them and
tried to chew them off. My girlfriend and I made it
a point to correct Kizzie, her cat, by using a strong
*NO!* and pulling her paw away from her mouth. Within
an hour or two she stopped picking at her Soft Paws
and now after only a few days, she acts like they
aren't even there. I am always a skeptic and never
allow myself to get my hopes up when I make a purchase.
I hate disappointment!! This is one of the few times
I can honestly say that a product went above and beyond
my expectations. We are looking forward to trying
the different colors of Soft Paws so that Kizzie will
be the envy of every cat in the neighborhood.
I am just so happy to see a product live up to its
reputation that, being the skeptic that I am, I am
thrilled to help out anyone that is in a similar situation.
Please feel free to use my testimonial to help get
the word out about Soft Paws. Thank you.
- Karen, Kizzie, and Bob
I just received my Soft Paws order on Friday. I had
to write and tell you how thoroughly pleased I am
with the product. I applied them to my 2 cats with
no problems. Cassie didn't even notice a change (even
though she now has adorable, bright pink claws!),
and Callie only licked at hers for a few minutes before
forgetting all about them. I am so relieved that everything
worked out better than I had ever hoped. The cats
are happy as can be, and now I can buy that new couch
I've been eyeing with no worries.
Thank you so much for making this great alternative
to declawing available. I am telling everyone I know
about my success and how to get Soft Paws for their
loved ones! Thanks, again.

You can add my name to the list of satisfied customers.
Soft Paws has given us one less thing to argue about!!
I have three very busy cats, who can't seem to remember
their manners, especially around the new furniture
and carpeting. I recently moved into a new house with
my fiancé, who I might add had many reservations
about the quantity of cats I brought in tow. He was
right, the first object of the cat's obsession was
the new carpeting on the stairs; I spent many of nights
chasing them away and then locking them in the basement.
The furniture was next.......I purchased Soft Paws
back in June, the first application was easier than
I had expected. The biggest problem was the abundance
of cat hair, I was covered from head to toe, but it
was well worth it. I'm a little lax about reapplying
nails when one falls off, I usually wait until at
least three or four are missing, but the stress level
in my house (for all of us) has just about disappeared.
Thanks to Soft Paws I can sleep an entire night!!
- Lisa Howe
I just wanted to write to express my complete satisfaction
with your product. I have two cats at home that moderately
scratch the furniture, but my big problem was my boy
Jacob. He's a very protective territorial cat. That
means he's so adorable and lovable to me- he will
let me hold him like a baby and he never gives me
attitude, but when I have friends over he becomes
vicious (he bats his claws and hisses at people- even
those who are over frequently). I was torn between
my cat and my friends. I had to come to some sort
of decision after he tore up my friends leg while
she was feeding him when I was out of town. Declawing
was absolutely out of the question, so I decided to
finally give soft paws a try (I had heard of them
awhile ago, but never gave it any thought). It was
a unique experience applying them the first time-
my boys were tolerant enough and didn't seem to notice
any thing was different. This last week has been great
(I've only had to reapply 5 caps between the two of
them)and they haven't scratched me or my friends or
the furniture. Thanks for a product that saves not
only their claws but their emotional well being (and
mine!) I will be a lifetime customer!!!
- William Miller
Thank you so much for Soft Paws! When I moved to
Oregon to go to school, no one would accept my cat!
After months of searching, I finally found an apartment
that would allow me to keep Mojo, but only if I declawed
him! I don't believe in declawing, so I was faced
with quite a dilemma. Thank goodness for Soft Paws!
My landlord gets intact carpets, I get to keep my
cat, and my cat gets to keep his claws. We're all
very happy. Thank You! Please visit our web site at
http://welcome.to/orangesunshine where we have a section
devoted to Soft Paws! Best wishes.

I just wanted to say thank you for the Soft Paws for
cats. I have 4 little ones and they all have done
great with them. I can finally have some peace of
mind when they all pile up on the waterbed. They are
really terrific. Thanks again.
- Samantha S. Sharp
I love your product! My cat accidentally scratched
my face (near my eye) very badly last week and I had
to go to the Emergency Room. I was so sad at the thought
of having to declaw my beautiful kitty, but I was
so afraid of a worse accident happening (especially
around small children). I heard about the product
over the Internet and have found it to be exactly
what I needed! Thank you so much and Oscar (my cat)
thanks you, too!
- Elisabeth Calvert Smith
Thank you so much for this life-saving product! I
recently moved in with my boyfriend of 2 years and
he was very concerned that they would scratch his
new leather furniture (which they would have without
this product!). He insisted on them being declawed
- which I absolutely refused!!! My groomer introduced
me to Soft Paws and I have been using them and telling
all my friends and contacts about them ever since.
P.S. And extra thanks from Cleo and Marc Anthony!
- Brenda Stevens
I have been using Soft Paws for a long time, almost
5 years. I think they are an excellent product, and
a far better option than declawing.

Just a note to thank you for creating such a WONDERFUL
product. Years ago (when I was less informed on the
actual surgical procedure and unaware of the traumatic
impact that declawing can have on a cat, I had a loving
cat declawed - neither of us ever could quite go back
to "normal". Recently, after a friend told
me about your product I purchased it and was immediately
sold. For the last seven years, I have argued that
declawing was inhumane to anyone who even mentioned
it - citing the example of cutting a human finger
off at the first joint in support of my argument -
and just accepted that my furniture will eventually
be in shreds (oh well, I can always learn to reupholster,
right!). My female has worn the clear Soft Paws for
about two weeks without even noticing (except when
I put them on, she had to tell me about her thoughts
on it), while the male was an angel while I put them
on... but daily seems to either take one off... or
nibbles off the tip of the cap! I religiously reapply
them - while telling him he does NOT even want to
know the alternative that a "sister" long
ago had to suffer!
I'm sold.... we're ordering colors for Christmas and
will continue to order from you forever. Thanks from
Boris and Tasha, too!
- Kim L. Turnpaugh
I needed to let everyone know how great the Soft Paws
work. We got our Siamese-mix as a kitten a little
over a year ago, and Gracie's full of energy! She
started clawing the furniture, even though she used
her scratching post. We don't let her go outdoors,
and we didn't want to have her declawed. I heard about
these and decided to give them a try, not expecting
them to work. We've been using them ever since, just
replacing them as they shed every once in a while.
She chews on them for a couple of minutes after we
put them on, and then just forgets about them. We
are very happy that we found these, and will continue
to use them.
- Janice Kelly
Thank you SO much for your wonderful product. I'm
not a very easily satisfied customer, and I definitely
had my doubts about whether these would work for my
cats. I have some of the most finicky, picky, neurotic
cats. I thought, well I'm sure they would work for
your average cat, but there's no way that my cats
will tolerate them. I did have to wrestle with them
to get them on, but no more than for a regular nail-clipping.
Once they were on, they ran off and licked their paws
for hours and I figured ... aha, see, I knew it wouldn't
work, they'll pull them off by tomorrow. But by the
next day both of my cats seem to have forgotten that
they were there altogether! I'm amazed! And now, three
or four weeks later, they still haven't fallen off!
- Irene Shaw
I just wanted to let you know how amazed I am with
my soft paws order. I read the testimonials and info
on the web page but didn't believe it would work.
The day I received my shipment my cat was clawing
at my couch, I grabbed her, clipped her nails, and
applied the soft paws. To my surprise she didn't even
know what happened !! She's had them on for four days
now and doesn't even realize anything is different.
She even uses her scratching post still! I am very
happy this product works since I do not believe in
declawing but was getting upset about furniture damage.
Thank you! I've referred several people to this product.
- Chris Demko
I recently adopted a 1 year old stray cat from the
local SPCA. Roxie lives inside, but I didn't want
to have her declawed (its so cruel). I decided to
give Soft Paws a chance, and boy am I glad I did!
My little Roxie put up hardly any resistance to getting
her nails trimmed and the caps applied. Within 30
seconds, she was used to the caps and didn't fuss
with them. I'm so glad that my kitty is no longer
a hazard to my wallpaper and furniture! I love Soft
Paws! Thank you!
- Jennifer Stern
I never write testimonials for products, but in this
case I just HAD to!! Several years ago, the animal
hospital that I work for purchased these as an alternative
to declawing since our veterinarian will not declaw
cats. Since then I have seen SO MANY satisfied customers!!
Myself Included!! This product offers ALL of the benefits
& none of the pain, suffering, & expense of
declawing. This is the best product I have ever seen
(for cats OR humans!) paws down! I just wanted to
thank you for putting a product on the market like
this. It has really saved a lot of cats & dogs
out there from a painful & dangerous elective
surgery. Not to mention being sent to the pound for
"inappropriate scratching behavior" (and
I use the term loosely as it is completely natural
for a cat to scratch!) Thank you so much!!

Just had to write to tell you we are a two-family
Soft Paws user. My daughter, in Oklahoma, has two
cats. She discovered Soft Paws by accident while on
the web. They worked so well for her "girls"
that we decided to buy two sets...pink for our girl
cat (Checkers) and blue for our boy cat (kincaid).
I just ordered four more sets, each in a different
color. My husband wants our cats to look like rainbows,
so that's why we decided on all colors for variety.
Kinda silly, maybe, but who cares? The Soft Paws work
wonderfully. I admit (much to my chagrin) that I have
had previous cats I've owned declawed. When I read
how the surgery is actually done, how maiming it is,
I preferred not to declaw any more animals from that
point on...no matter how my furniture suffered. Soft
Paws has solved furniture problems while allowing
my cats the dignity of remaining whole and happy!
Thankyou, thankyou, thankyou! BTW...I found out my
dentist, who owns two kitties and loves them to death,
uses Soft Paws for his babies. My usual twenty-minute
visit turned into more than 45 minutes because we
were exchanging stories about Soft Paws and, of course,
our cats and their personalities. One can't talk to
one's dentist while his fingers are in their mouth,
eh? Thanks again.
- Lynn Finn
I just really wanted to say thank you for a great
product. I first heard of them when I worked in a
vet office, but didn't pay much attention. Then we
got a "lovely" cat named Loki and he will
knead and scratch anything. He even put gouges in
the wall of our new apartment. He is still able to
play and run and pick things up in his paws, its great!
I'm going to recommend these products to my family,
who are notorious for declawing to preserve cherished
furniture. And I also recommended that a friend of
mine check out the dog covers for his new puppy.
- Rosemary Oberholtzer
It's just about 2 weeks now and Oliver our Maine Coone
has adjusted immediately to the Softpaws. So far...so
good. They are great...Only 2 came off but quickly
adhered new ones. I am so happy for your product.
I was not happy about the alternative to declawing.
Having new furniture I did not want to have him claw
his way through it. He had already started. Now with
Softpaws...we don't have too worry. Thanks.
- Rob, Flushing, NY
I just wanted to say Thanks so much for a wonderful
product. I have a 15 week old calico named "Tinkerbell"
and she just loved digging her sharp little nails
into myself, my husband and my two small children.
She loves to play and does not realize she is hurting
us. After doing some research on declawing, I was
sick to think of how horrible this procedure is. I
came across the Soft Paw website and decided to give
them a try. My order only took two days to arrive
and my husband and I applied them to her tonight.
"Tink" did lick and chew at them for a few
minutes, but soon forgot about them. She does not
even know they are there anymore. We are very pleased
with the product and will be ordering more. "Tink"
says she'd like the pink ones next time because pink
is her color! Thanks so much for keeping my home from
being shredded, my children safe, and "Tinkerbell"
a very happy kitty! We are all very, very, happy.

I'm a volunteer cats expert on practical-pet-care.com
and allexperts.com. I get a fair share of frustrated
cat owners seeking ways to stop their cats from scratching
inappropriately. I firmly stand against declawing,
so I do not offer this as a viable solution. But maybe
a couple years ago, I saw your ad in Cat Fancy Magazine
(I'm addicted!). I never had a need to try Soft Paws,
but I always suggested trying them to all the cat
owners who have ever contacted me with a problem scratcher,
and I gave them a link to your site. A couple months
ago, I took in an orphaned kitten who has decided
he will not use natural wood, sisal, or a carpeted
post to scratch. Only my new couch will do. So I ordered
a set of Soft Paws myself. I put them on the kitten
(7 months old and HUGE), and he didn't bat an eye.
He has no idea they're there! He can't scratch the
couch anymore, or climb the Christmas tree for that
matter! And it's wonderful for our other cats, too,
because he tends to get a little overzealous with
play. Now if I could just find soft little caps for
his teeth! Thanks so much for a wonderful product.
I will continue to recommend them and give them praise
based on my personal experience.

I thought my cat would never even allow me to put
them on her, but she has taken to them like a pro.
When I put them on, she doesn't even seem to notice.
You have made a great product. I know you hear that
all the time, but you have made another believer in
me. Thank you!
- Mina Lloyd
I just wanted to say thank you. I guess this sounds
like "another" thank you, but this really
is a fantastic product! I really wish I had known
about this before I declawed my cat. I'd never done
anything like that before with any other cat, but
it was my only alternative at the time. I feel awful
about it. Now, having leather furniture and my kids,
something else had to be done and WOW when the leather
repairman came and repaired the couch he suggested
and handed me a flyer; said this is all I'll ever
need to do. Man, was he right! Please don't raise
your prices! That's another plus that makes it affordable
for everyone, not just those who have big bucks! Thanks,
and I'll be ordering again and I will be spreading
the word of what an awesome product this is!

Soft Paws is the BOMB and a blood pressure reducer
!!! My cats don't scratch the furniture but they do
get their claws caught up in my expensive bedding
when shifting around to get comfortable creating loops
and snags. The upholstered furniture (feline Jungle
Jim) breaks down bit by bit during climbing, leaping,
wrestling and general frolicking activities. Well,
instead of cringing, helplessly listening to the threads
crackle and pop while my blood pressure rises, I can
relax now. Those soft paws have for now taken some
of the boredom out of my cats as well ....they now
have to adapt to getting around the house without
using their back paws as rakes, pitchforks, and springboards.
They knew something was different after application
for a few moments, picked at them for about 90 secs,
and forgot about them ever since. If you have an easy
going cat they are fun to put on too, and the experience
amounts to giving the cat a "pedicure" at
the" day spa" without leaving the house.
I had known about the caps for a while but assumed
they were uncomfortable until I did further reading
in the testimonials and browsed over the contented
kitty faces in the. Speaking of contentment, everybody
at my house is happy over Soft Paws. Oh yes, they
ship fast too !!! I ordered on an early Friday afternoon
and the caps were at my house that Monday ... they
were also on the cats one hr after I opened the package.
No need to hesitate ordering Soft Paws. I assure you
it will help you enjoy your cats even more ..... and

I wanted to write and thank you for your product.
My cat Hershey was an only pet for six years and became
very jealous when I got two small Chihuahuas. I ended
up at the vet more than once because he'd scratched
a dog's eye. He became much more accepting of them
as time went on but once in a while there were run-ins
and I'd come home to find red swollen spots from a
cat swipe on a dog's nose or ear. I became worried
about going out and leaving them alone; my friends
were telling me to declaw Hershey, give him away or
even worse, put him to sleep (all unacceptable to
me). After coming home Monday to find a big red bump
on one dog's snout, I called my vet in desperation
and asked if they knew of anything I could do. They
recommended your product, and I received it yesterday
(fast delivery!). I feel so relieved that I don't
have give away my kitty or worry anymore that my dogs
will be injured. Peace reigns in the household, and
I have peace of mind. Thank you.
