I just wanted to say thank you for Soft Paws. I rescued
a 6 month old kitten from the shelter last September.
She is the best cat and I love her to death, but she
would hide under my bed and "attack" me
when ever I walked by. I knew this was only a "kitten
phase" and she would eventually grow out of it.
My legs were so scratched and scared so bad that I
always wore jeans. I had to move to my parent's house
for the summer and my dad hates cats. He said the
only way I could bring Kissy home with me was if I
got her declawed. It killed me to think that I was
going to have to put her through all that pain just
so she could come home with me over the summer. I
thought I had no choice, until I found Soft Paws.
I told my dad that declawing Kissy was essentially
removing the first joint of her "fingers"
and he suddenly felt bad. I told him and Soft Paws
and we decided to give them a try. They have been
a life saver!!! Kissy had grown out of her "kitten
phase" and doesn't attack me anymore. Now that
I'm in my own place, I still keep Soft Paws on her
so she doesn't scratch my furniture, and for those
trips to my parent's house. Thank you SO much.

Soft Paws have been a life-saver for us - literally.
I don't think our 10 month old kitten would have survived
the severe scratching he had inflicted on himself
due to his allergies. We were at our wits end as he
had open areas on his neck, ears and head. He would
scratch himself until he bled and then would shake
his head, sending specks of blood everywhere. It was
very distressing for all concerned. We were also becoming
increasingly concerned about infection and how close
he was coming to scratching his eyes. I had remembered
reading about Soft Paws in Pam Bennett-Johnson's wonderful
book "Think Like a Cat". As soon as we applied
the Soft Paws to Robby's hind paws, he started to
improve. The open areas gradually healed and we continued
with his corticosteroid medications and allergy shots.
We now have a well and healthy cat, whose fur has
grown back in all the scratched areas and who is responding
well to his allergy treatments. We continue to use
the Soft Paws as he still scratches on ocassion and
we want to protect him. I've made a point of telling
the many vets who have been involved in our kitten's
care about Soft Paws, in hopes that they will pass
the information on to other pet owners in similar
situations. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

Soft Paws saved my cats from being DECLAWED! My boyfriend
and I recently spent a over a year and a ton of money
remodeling our new home. The first day we brought
the cats over to stay, they raked their claws in our
newly painted door jams. They continued to wreak havoc,
until my boyfriend and I agreed that we would declaw
them if we couldn't find another solution. I REALLY
didn't want to put Montgomery and Mabel through declawing,
so I hopped online and did research. I tried squirt
bottles and scratching posts, but still would come
home to find molding mauled to bits. We re-sanded
and repainted about every two days!!! Finally, I found
Soft Paws, and ordered them for Montgomery, the larger
and more destructive of the two. THESE THINGS WORKED
WONDERS!!! They are so amazing, that I just ordered
some for Mabel. I thank you, my boyfriend thanks you,
and MOST OF ALL, my kitties thank you! What an amazing
low-cost, pain-free product! Devoted Soft Paws User,

& Mabel, too)
Just wanted to let you know, like everyone else,
I will never be without Soft Paws. OB Wan, who was
used to scratching up all my furniture, took a particular
liking to my new couch. I knew that declawing was
out of the question, so I started doing a little research
when I stumbled on your site. I got the product 2
days ago. He has no idea he's wearing these things,
which really surprises me because he is the finickiest
of cats. I've only replaced one and I think it's because
there wasn't enough glue in it. Thanks so much for
giving me one less thing to stress about in my life!
Hi, my name is Kristina Folcik and I recently purchased
your Soft Paws!! I love them and my kitten looks so
cute with them on! Everyone wishes they knew about
them before they got their cats declawed! I got the
red ones and people think I painted her nails. She
is such a little girl now!! I take her everywhere
and I get so many comments on them and I love them
so much I have been carrying your website with me
so I can give it out! This is an excellent way to
keep her from destroying our place without hurting

I just wanted to tell you how happy I am with this
product. We are "owned" by seven of the
sweetest cats on the planet - four of them we've had
for years and had them declawed when we first got
them as that was the 'thing to do' at the time. Since
then, we've learned what a cruel act declawing is,
and when we adopted the last three over the past 4
months, we looked at Soft Paws as an alternative.
It has been absolutely fantastic! We were taking the
cats to the vet to have them applied but thought I'd
try it myself and ordered a kit. The application was
much easier than I expected and my three new kitties
are now all running around with hot pink toes! (I've
found that the hot pink ones make it easy to see when
a cat has lost a tip.) My declawed cats are safe from
accidental injury when they play with the cats who
still have their claws, and my house is safe from
anyone who thinks that the furniture is a good place
to sharpen! I am so pleased with this product and
will continue to order it. This is the best pet product
to come along in ages and I have been telling all
of my cat-owning friends that this is something they

I just have to rave about your nail cover products
for cats (and raving I usually do not do about things).
We rescued a full grown cat from a shelter in July
after he had been in a cage for nearly 2 months. He
is a large cat of over 15 pounds of mostly muscle.
When he came home with us he developed some issues
of trust and aggression. He was literally attacking
me and drawing blood when he would bite and scratch.
It got to the point in the first two weeks that we
did not know if we could keep him so an expensive
declawing procedure was out of the question but something
had to be done. I ordered the Soft Paws hoping they
would help a little at the least but in my mind I
felt he would probably get them off faster than we
would get them on. Needless to say he is on his second
set now and we are getting ready to replace them with
a third set soon. Each set has stayed on until WE
took them off. He is a wonderful cat now and we would
not give him up for anything. We have also decided
to stay with the Soft Paws instead of declawing. We
have also recommended your product to several friends
and co-workers who have tried them and loved them
too. Thank you for making such a wonderful product.

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."

I spoke to you this week concerning the kitten Soft
Paws you sent us. My husband says "they are a
miracle." You saved our kitten! We just moved
into a house we have been renovating for three years
and our architect gave us a 10 week old Siamese as
a house warming gift. Our kitten promptly attacked
all of our new (mostly Italian) furniture. We couldn't
bear the thought of giving her away but we also knew
we couldn't have her shred our new furniture. Our
vet helped us apply the first several nails on Wednesday
night, and then we applied the rest at home. We are
so happy! Our kitten is so happy. She doesn't seem
to mind the nails at all. So, I just wanted to write
you and tell you that you saved our kitten! And we're
having a blast with her. Thank you.

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!
- Stacey, Sacramento
I would just like to thank you for such a wonderful
product. It is a wonderful alternative to declawing.
I have a suggestion. Maybe you should make them in
holiday colors. Like red and green for Christmas or
orange and black for Halloween. Thanks again.
- Karen and Bjorn Verduijn
I very rarely comment on any products that I receive,
but Soft Paws are absolutely amazing. My cat is such
a playful cat that he doesn't realize that when he
bites and claws us his scratches hurt...up to the
point of bleeding and scaring in my case. But with
Soft Paws...no more scars for me!!! Thanks for making
me think twice about declawing. I think I'll order
the blue and purple next time!

Just wanted to let you know that I love your product.
My cat "Thumper" recently had the soft paws
put on her and I think they're great. She has 26 toes
and you can imagine how difficult it is to trim her
toes. This should help prevent the toes from growing
into her paw and I think my couch and curtains will
now survive her! Thanks.
Our kitty, Elliot, was dropped off at the vets to
be declawed. He and our puppy play all day and we
were afraid the dog's eyes would get scratched. Elliot
came home that day with softpaws instead. He sounds
like a little tap dancer now and we all love the softpaws!
I wish we had tried them a year ago. Elliot and Tucker
say "Thank you"! Thanks!
We just got ours in the mail on Friday and they are
the greatest invention. Our little Behnaz looks so
cute in her hot pink SoftPaws and she only fussed
for a few minutes after the application. I guess I
did a pretty good job because none of them have come
off and it's been two days!

This is a letter from one of the biggest skeptics
in the universe.. who is now a confirmed believer
in the product you are selling.. and so grateful for
what you are doing. I am sure you have had many similar
emails over the years.. but I just feel a need to
express myself to you.......even though I am sure
you don't need the validation. The day I first discovered
your site I was at my wits end. For almost two years
my little Natasha was scratching the furniture furiously
and relentlessly, in an effort to establish her territory,
because she was extremely jealous of the cat named
Misty who I adopted when Tash was 13 weeks old. (
To save that cat's life ... and also to keep Natasha
company when I would be out of the house.)
Tashy is an " In your face " kitty..bright
and absolutely fearless.... who eats up life and does
everything to the fullest measure....... and letting
other cats and people know that I am her exclusive
territory was no exception. I tried everything I could
( too much to list here ) to make her feel secure,
and to stop the behavior from occurring.... as it
got to the point where any piece of furniture that
I sit in is destroyed. There are large gaping holes
in the material with foam exposed that are immediately
noticeable when entering the dining room or living
room or computer room. She did a VERY good job of
saying " Here i am, this is mine, and if you
know what is good for you ,you better watch out and
stay away ! " It had gotten to the point where
I stopped inviting people over for dinner, as the
obvious implied violence was so noticeable, and such
a put off. And I was depressed to think that I would
never be allowed to have nice furniture ever again,
and a house that expressed peace and harmony and beauty....if
I were to keep Tash.
Well I was caught between a rock and a harder place
as I couldn't face the prospect of giving her up ...
or declawing her because I could see how traumatized
my other cat Misty was by the fact that her former
owner had had her declawed ( seems as if it is painful
for her to walk, and she is very reserved and timid
as compared to my " In your face" Tashy..)
Yet, I was getting more and more depressed by the
fact that I could not ever have a lovely home again.
Or go anywhere. Then I found your site.... I have
to admit it took me weeks to order the soft paws...
I just couldn't believe that they would really work....
I just couldn't believe that they would actually stay
on.. I just couldn't believe that the cat would not
find them objectionable. I even went to the great
length of writing one of the people that you had on
your testimonial page.... because i noticed they said
they were from a traceable humane society. I did a
search on the humane society.. and then sent off an
email to them to ask if they had actually written
the testimonial.. and if they still felt the same
My email was transferred to the person who had written
the testimonial.. and I got a very positive email
back. So i ordered them... It still took me weeks
to put them on, as I had convinced myself that it
was a lot more difficult than it turned out to be.
I have to admit.. that the first week a few did come
off.. one here or there...and i thought .. well this
is not going to work.... But i quickly replaced them...
hoping that I had not made a mistake, and that i would
be forced to putting them on every few days.....and
having to spend tons of money to do that. But after
that, they didn't come off again for weeks. and weeks...two
months actually..... and now they always last as long
as you say in your copy.... The cat simply does not
mind them.... Peace and harmony have been restored
to this home.
I just have to say how much I love the soft paws for
dogs and cats. I found about them through my vet about
six years ago when my pug had a scratching problem.
When I found out how great they worked on my dog,
I had to get them for my cat. They have saved my furniture,
and my sanity. Thank you so much.
- Amy, MS
So far so good......Oliver, our Maine Coon like to
tease us with his clawing of the new furniture. I
really did not want to declaw.....My friend told me
about softpaws and figured I had nothing to lose by
trying your product. I was skeptical like I'm so many
others before me. Oliver did not fuss over the nail
caps. He look once a tried to remove one and quickly
forgot about it. Several hours later he seems to care
less they are on his claws. I know it's only one day....But
so far...so good.....I keep my fingers crossed for

I would just like to drop you a note to tell you how
pleased I am with the Soft Paws purchase I recently

not only are they absolutely adorable, they actually
work! I am very pleased and I just wanted you to know.

I just heard about Soft Paws on Friday, I ordered
on Saturday..and here it is Tuesday (and yesterday
was a Holiday!) & I have already received (&
put on) the Soft Paws! I have 2 kittens (all black)
they are 6 months old, I had never even clipped their
nails before. I ordered a nail clipper from you, too.
Not only did they let me clip their nails, but I was
able to apply the Soft Paws on both of them in less
than 10 minutes! They don't even seem to notice. I
just couldn't bare the thought of having them de-clawed,
but they were already ruining the furniture..I had
inquired at my veterinarian's office about an alternative
& they suggested your product. I will definitely
be re-ordering in the future and you can be assured
I will "spread the word". Again, thank you
for Soft Paws.
- Lori Slattery
Just wanted to thank you for such a great product.
My leather chairs and my cat (Cinnamon) were not getting
along as he liked to rest on the top of them straddling
them and using his claws to keep his balance. I sent
a picture of Cinnamon wearing the blue ones. They
were no problem to put on and he didn't even put up
a fight or even notice afterwards. Thank You.
- Robert Haney
I would like to add that my husband and I love your
product. I am forever thankful that I will never have
to even consider declawing my cats. Not that that
was ever an option really, but when we bought new
furniture I was concerned about our investment. When
I found softpaws online I ordered them immediately
and they have been as great as you advertise. My cats
don't seem to even notice them, my furniture is fine,
and as an added bonus my babies look adorable with
their "manicured" nails.
- Sara Borken
What a simple solution Soft Paws was for me. I had
tried to stop my cat from clawing our area rug but
he wouldn't give it up completely. My husband was
ready to have him declawed, but that's something I
couldn't bear to do. My two- and six-year old "assisted"
me when I applied Soft Paws. Even with their help,
it took just a few minutes to do and our cat accepted
them without complaint. I'm so glad to have this product;
it helped avert a disagreement in our house. Thank
- Gretchen Edwards
Many Thanks for this wonderful product and the fast
service. I am living in Germany and I received the
package within a week. I put them on my cat, Mr. Armani,
right away. The red looks nice against his black fur
and he doesn't seem to be bothered by them at all!
I was very dubious about them working (like so many
other people). So far so good! Big Shock! I don't
believe in declawing and this is going to be a great
way to save my furniture and skin! Thanks! I am going
to spread the word about Soft Paws.
I was seriously looking into declawing my cat, Mimi,
because I was moving into a new house. My boyfriend
had mentioned SoftPaws and I listened... I didn't
think he knew what he was talking about. I called
the vet and she explained that declawing was actually
an amputation of the cat's first knuckle... I never
realized, you know? I asked if there was an alternative
and she recommended SoftPaws. I took Mimi in that
week to get "fixed" and they also applied
the first set of SoftPaws. What a difference from
day 1! She doesn't realize they're on and when one
falls off, they're so easy to replace! I've told ALL
my friends about them. What an awesome product....
- Yolanda Apodaca, Albuquerque, NM
Thank you! So far the Soft Paws are wonderful!!!
We are on Day 3 & none have fallen off & he
doesn't even realize they are there!

I wanted to write to thank you (and the wonderful
lady on AOL's Cat Chat board, who told me that this
method of avoiding declawing existed). I am the proud
owner of the greatest cat in the world. I have had
several cats in the course of my lifetime, and can
say that this particular cat is the best I've ever
We adopted Ziggy from the local pet store, where he
was the biggest kitten in a cageful of littler, cuter
ones. (he was the leftovers... the one that no one
wanted) He was so grateful to be going home with us.
Over the next few months we were amazed at his humanlike
personality and his generous, loving attitude (even
after we had him neutered, he never held a grudge!
Ziggy's only fault is actually a backhanded blessing.
He loves to sit on your chest, wrap his "hands"
around your neck, and lay his face against yours.
His kisses are great, but his incessant, ecstatic
kneading isn't. (I suspect like many pet store kittens,
he was removed from his mother too soon) I was beginning
to get comments from people I work with about my neck,
face & upper chest being so scratched up - I eventually
and reluctantly had to ban him from the bedroom, much
to our mutual distress. In desperation, my husband
& I decided he had to be declawed, despite the
fact that he goes outside occasionally. I got online
by chance one night and posed a few questions about
declawing on the Cat Chat bulletin board. What vehement
responses! It seems that quite a few people out there
have tried your product. I was skeptical, but we were
desperate. (I worked for a vet.... I know what's involved
Ziggy, to my surprise, didn't put up any fuss while
I trimmed his claws in preparation, and only pulled
away a bit when I had to push to seat the cap all
the way. He never seemed to notice once they were
all on! He's now sporting red shiny nails, which delight
my kids to no end, and he slept with me for the first
time last night. We fell asleep with his arms wrapped
round my neck and his paws tangled in my hair. No
pain, no fuss. God bless you. I'm telling everyone
I know. Thank you for giving me my cat back.

I just had to take the time to write you about your
marvelous product! After the loss of our beloved cat,
Midnight, whom we had loved for many, many years,
we decided that it would definitely take at least
two cats to take his place. We brought home our little
babies (Mikey and Mattie) and decided that in order
to save our home and furniture from these lively little
critters, a declaw would definitely be in order. So,
I went on-line to see exactly what this entails -
I was horrified! And to think I had put Midnight thru
this torture without even a second thought - I pray
he forgives me for that. There was just no way in
the world that I was going to put my little sweetie
pies through this awful procedure and luckily, there
was a link to Soft Paws in the article I was reading
about the declawing procedure. I was absolutely fascinated
and before I had even received my first set (which
arrived in about a day and a half!!), I was emailing
the info about Soft Paws to every cat owner I knew.
They are easy to apply, although I do enlist my Husband's
help (he holds, I apply) and then afterwards my little
ones get a little treat and they're off and running.
I just can't thank you enough for your wonderful product
- I'm sure if cats could talk they would also be saying
a big THANK YOU for saving their little fingers! Soft
Paws are absolutely wonderful and the only difficult
thing about it is deciding which color should I order!
Thank you a million times over! Also, I would like
to add that your customer service representatives
are very knowledgeable, helpful, kind and caring and
that in itself is also a rare treat in this day and
age!!! Keep up the great work!!

We just received our order of Soft Paws & wanted
to tell you how thrilled we are. They were incredibly
easy to put on & Camile doesn't even know she's
wearing them! We decided to try them after Camile
began beating up on another one of our cats who has
no claws. Now at least they're on even ground!

I wanted to tell you how wonderful my household thinks
softpaws are. My husband has been after me, to do
something about her picking, since I adopted my little
girl Nala when she was 8 weeks old (she is now almost
7 years old). She would pick and scratch at everything.
In fact, I had to get a tetanus shot from one of her
scratches to my arm. (I still love her) When Taz-z
came to us (he is Nala's son) we thought life would
be grand. Well, after going through several couches,
my husband was real fed up with it. I contacted my
veterinarian and he suggested the softpaws. I didn't
jump right in, as I doubted as many have. But upon
receiving the first order and getting them on, I am
hooked. After having just clipped their nails a couple
of days prior, they were rather skiddish. My little
boy wasn't much problem, and just gave in. He is my
mellow orange tabby. But my little girl hates her
paws touched and she required two of us to get the
job done. Comparatively speaking, Nala my little girl
weighs 8 pounds while Taz-z, my little boy weighs
15-17 pounds. Go figure. I have only had to replace
a couple on Nala and a handful on Taz-z (he chews
them off). But haven't had to replace any in a week.
So you have a customer for life. Now maybe my husband
can get that leather furniture he has always wanted.
Thanks SoftPaws. You are the greatest.
Just wanted to let you know that Soft Paws are helping
make a difference helping greyhounds find their forever
homes. I volunteer for Colorado Greyhound Adoptions.
A couple of years ago I was asked if I could bring
my cat, Broadway, to help 'test' a large group of
dogs we were taking in when a kennel was closing down.
(Cat testing is done under entirely safe conditions
for both cat and dog so that the dogs can be profiled
for the right personality to be placed properly, both
for fostering and eventually for adoption.)
Where many cats are not very keen on the idea of meeting
dog after dog and being sniffed and getting so much
attention from a group of strange people, Broadway
thrives on it. He now goes 'testing' about once a
month at various local kennels. (In his regular life
he is an indoor cat who defends our family from all
manner of flies and candy wrappers) He loves to be
the center of attention, even with strangers and is
willing to help 'disclipline' dogs that get too curious
by giving them a swat on the nose. We don't want that
swat to injure, but often that is what will help a
greyhound understand that they don't want anything
to do with cats, and makes them able to be placed
into homes with cats. Often, he is the first cat that
these dogs really get to meet. That's where Soft Paws
have made it easier for all involved. Broadway doesn't
mind wearing them and he is able to do his 'thing'
without causing injury.
Thank you for making Soft Paws and helping Broadway
to do his part in getting more greyhounds adopted
into their forever homes! (Not to mention the safety
of cats that live in those forever homes!)

I just wanted to tell you how happy we are after
using SoftPaws. We have four kitties, two that are
very feisty, and two that are prone to claw furniture.
After applying SoftPaws we don't have to worry about
scratched noses or clawed fingers. The cats have accepted
the new manicures and seem to not even notice them.
They are really the best product we've ever gotten
for our cats!!!
I included a picture of one kitty, Misty, who was
already Diva but with her red nails now she thinks
she is just so gorgeous. Thanks so much!

Just wanted to say thanks for making such a great
product! Our kitty was driving us crazy scratching
all the furniture, and as we are moving into a brand
new condo in a few months, we knew we had to find
a solution or risk having our new berber carpet destroyed
by him. I brought up the idea of declawing (which
I knew absolutely nothing about), and my normally
easygoing boyfriend threw a fit and said I'd declaw
kitty over his dead body, because it is painful, cruel
and involves removing part of kitty's toe. I thought
he was crazy at first, because surely if this procedure
was so cruel, no one would perform it. However, after
doing research, I discovered that he was exactly right.
Then a friend of mine told me she had heard about
some sort of gel nails for cats that prevented them
from damaging furniture when they scratched, so I
went online and discovered SoftPaws! Our cat hates
to have his paws touched, so we knew getting the SoftPaws
on would be a two person job.
The first application was the trickiest; kitty squirmed
and kicked, but when we finished the application and
put him down he licked the SoftPaws for a couple of
seconds, then started playing with one of his toys
and totally forgot about them. He bore a grudge over
the application process and was a little snooty to
us for the rest of the night, but when I woke up the
next morning, he was curled up next to me purring
his head off, so I guess all was forgiven. He lost
2 SoftPaws that day (not enough glue), and much to
our surprise when we went to reapply them he stayed
nice and still no kicking or squirming at all! Thanks

You guys (gals) are just wonderful! There is no other
way to describe it. I received your letter with the
adhesives today. I don't know how you managed to send
it to Korea so fast (usually mail from the States
takes about 3 weeks)! Softpaws just offers incredible
customer service - besides selling a fantastic product
- and you can be assured that I will always refer
people with cats and dogs to your website. I will
also take one of your fliers to the vet here on post
next time I go. Thanks so much again and I'll probably
be placing another order in a few months.

Hi, I've been using your pink Softpaws for almost
two months and they're great! I just placed my first
reorder so we don't run out. My husband was determined
to have our cat declawed, even though she's not destructive,
but he agreed to try Softpaws first. Our cat Phoebe,
a Black Smoke Burmese, doesn't seem to notice them
even though she's very active and they just look so
cute on her! Thanks for the great product!

I wanted you to see my Flame Point Siamese, Ashton,
with his beautiful blue nails. He's a former street
cat, whom I adopted through the Siamese Rescue Organization
here in Texas. As far as we know, he lived his first
couple of years on the streets of Austin until the
local pound picked him up. He'd had a hard life, possibly
being hit by a car at some point. He has a blind eye
from a cataract, a bad leg that was probably broken
and healed poorly on its' own, really bad teeth, and
I have to say though, that he adapted very quickly
to the life of leisure every cat is entitled to! He's
been with us for 2 years now, and has been wearing
his Soft Paws for close to a year. He destroyed my
old sofa, tearing a hole in it big enough for him
to walk into! He had terrible scratching habits, which
were just natural to him from being in the wild. I
don't believe in declawing, and would never do it,
so Soft Paws was the answer. He took to the Soft Paws
with no problems at all, and just knows that his manicures
are part of his grooming routine. If he'll tolerate
the manicure, then his treat is getting combed and
brushed, which he adores.
Thanks for a great solution to a common problem! I'll
send you a picture too of my 18 pound, 12 year old
Tuxedo cat, Warren Bitey, wearing his red nails! PS.
I tried the Soft Paws in spite of my vet's hesitation
about them. He said he felt they were too difficult
for people to put on and to maintain, and that it
could be expensive. I have found none of that to be
true! I don't know what can be done about it, but
I feel that if more vets would endorse this product,
more declaw procedures could be avoided!
