Very impressed with product. Max was a real scratcher,
and he doesn't even know he has these things on. Thanks.
The thought of de-clawing him, and his little girl-friend,
Mary Ann, broke my heart. They both seem very happy,
to be wearing these things. Took me less than 10 minutes,
per cat to apply. Max has lost a couple, Mary has
not lost any yet, (10 days). Highly recommend, and
have told all my cat friendly friends.

Hi, I just wanted to say how much we love the SoftPaws!
I'm about to place another order. Sophie has the blue,
and Theo has the red. Thank you!!

We used this photo for our Christmas card in 2002
with the caption "Not a creature was stirring
..." We got so many comments about the Soft Paws
that can been seen on Nikky's paws. Thanks for saving
our furniture, our sanity and Nikky from undue pain.

My name is Ronnie. I have two kitties, their names
are Lionel and Grendel. They both wear Soft Paws.
We get three colors because the kitties seem to like
it more. Grendel is the oldest, she's Grey, and she's
three years old. Grendel was adopted from a farm in
Iowa when she was really little. Daddy says she's
his baby girl. Lionel is the youngest, he's black
and white, and he's two years old. Lionel was adopted
from a shelter in Oak Park, Illinois when he was little.
Lionel had a broken leg when he went to the shelter,
and he only had his cast off for 2 days when we adopted
him. He was a ball of energy and he never changed.
One time he knocked a plant onto my head at 3:00 in
the morning when I was sleeping. Here are some cute
pictures of our kitties wearing Soft Paws. I hope
they're cute enough to put on your website.

My cat Buffy hates to have her nails trimmed, something
I had to (try to) do every couple of weeks. She's
not really bad about scratching the furniture when
we're home, but who knows what she does when we're
So I decided to try SoftPaws and they were fairly
easy to put on her. She licked her paws for a few
minutes after they were on, but we distracted her
with toys and now (a day later) she's fine with them.
I can't say she loves them, because what cat doesn't
like to dig her claws into something? But one of her
favorite thing to do is to stand in my lap and knead,
claws spread, so at least she can't dig her claws
into me anymore! If only the SoftPaws could stop her
from climbing on the kitchen counters... :)

I ordered soft paws w/very little hope they would
actually work. They were my last hope. I had tried
everything from scratching posts to sprays to two
sided tape. In a desperate attempt to take care of
my cat's scratching problem I ordered soft paws and
am thrilled. My cat is not very cooperative when it
comes to nail clipping, so I thought I was in for
a struggle. I had the soft paws on her w/in 15-20
minutes!! I was prepared to go through a process of
her getting used to them. However, she tried only
briefly to get them off -in no time it seemed she
was used to them. I can't begin to tell you how grateful
I am for your product. T
- Valerie Cordova
Thank you so much for the response. We have now had
the Soft Paws on for a week and they are wonderful!!
What a great idea!! I wish more people knew of these
before they had irreversible surgery on their cats.
Thank you again!!

I admit it -- when I read the testimonials, I was
skeptical. But I figured it was worth a try. Our 15-year-old
cat has been "post-trained" since kittenhood,
but that didn't stop him from shredding 2 sofas and
1 chair over the years. We tried all the deterrents
-- tape, foil, awful smelling sprays -- but nothing
worked for long. We resigned ourselves to that lived-in
I read that the paws were easy to apply -- they really
were. Zachary tolerates me clipping his claws, and
he tolerated the application of the paws as well.
I was sure he'd chew them off within an hour. Yes,
I'd read that the cats hardly seem to know they're
on, but my cat is very smart. I'm delighted to tell
you that after a few minutes he really didn't seem
to notice them. It's been a few days now, and he hasn't
been bothered by his new paws in the least.
The best part is that, because of Soft Paws, we have
decided against declawing our new kitten. We were
very reluctant to consider declawing at all, but weren't
willing to sacrifice our nice furniture. And now we
don't have to. Thank you so much for providing this
amazing product. I'll spread the word among all the
cat owners I know!

FINALLY!! Our cat is no longer shredding my couch,
my carpet or my children's faces and arms ("Whiskers"
is very playful). I wish I would have had "Soft
Paws" 2 years ago!!! I couldn't have "Whiskers"
declawed, it just wasn't in me to do something that
seemingly cruel to an animal and giving him away was
too cruel to my little girl ("Whiskers"
was all that she wanted for Christmas 2 years ago).
However, recently I did talk to my local vet about
declawing because I was at my wit's end with all the
scratching going on in my home. Still, I just knew
there had to be a better way to prevent all this damage.
I found "Soft Paws" on the internet, THANK
GOODNESS!!! Now we can all live in the same house
in harmony. Thank you so much.

I just wanted to say that i love your product. We
just adopted our second baby, she is a year old and
came from the shelter. We have a 13 year old already
and she is already declawed so we feared of fights
with our older girl as well as our velvet couch. I'm
so glad i have an alternative to the terrible declawing.
I will tell everyone i know what a wonderful product
this is. It took two of us for application, one to
hold one; one to apply. The hardest part was trimming!
application was easy. Thank you for the super fast
shipment. we ordered on Thursday night and received
them on Saturday. Thank you so much again.

I'm Jan Adams, the proud owner of Sasha. She looks
adorable in her pink Soft Paws which match her pink
harness. She goes for daily walks around the neighborhood
on a leash and is the envy of all Madeira Beach cat

I just wanted to let you know how much I love your
product. My kitties were the guinea pigs for a group
of us that volunteer at an animal shelter. I love
them, but our furniture was not nice enough to keep
up with them. Now we have new couches and are going
to start using them again. When I handled adoptions
at the animal shelter, I told everyone about them.
I just wanted to let you know that I find my cats
each take a size smaller than recommended. I find
they stay on better. My large (16 pound) male is the
only one who takes a medium. My Maine Coone (with
unusually small claws even though she has big feet)
and 2 medium size females take smalls. If someone
is having trouble keeping them on, it might be a good
idea to try one size smaller. Thanks for creating
such a great product!!!

Hi just wanted to let you know I applied softpaws
on my kitten and they work great! I was a little messy
putting them on at first, but I got the hang of it
fast. They don't seem to bother her and they stay
clean on her paws. I am glad I did my research before
getting her declawed, thanks!

A few years ago, I adopted an older cat from the
local humane society. After a few months, I discovered
that he was using his hind claws to scratch at his
face and neck, which was causing terrible sores and
injuries. After testing for mites, fungus, etc...the
vet diagnosed allergies. I tried everything to fix
this problem, including change in diet, not using
fabric softener on my clothes, minimizing the use
of household cleaners, etc... Nothing worked. After
a serious illness that landed him in the kitty hospital
for several days, it was also discovered that he has
a medical condition that completely prevents the use
of steroids to treat the problem. I was at our wits
end and was considering declawing. Even though I don't
believe in declawing at all, my poor cat was in such
misery all the time that I thought it might be worth
Before I took that drastic step, though, my vet came
to the rescue and recommended Soft Paws
What do you know - they worked! After some struggle
to get the initial pair on, he ignored them for the
most part, and they stayed on for weeks. Although
he still scratches at himself, he can't cause injury
anymore. And he scratches a lot less now because he
doesn't have open sores to put bacteria, dirt, and
allergens into. I have to replace one or two every
couple of weeks, which is definitely not as much of
a hassle as everything else I went through trying
to cure his allergies.
Your product was a lifesaver for my cat, and has improved
the quality of his life 100%. Thank you, thank you,
I just wanted to say that this product is awesome!
I recently just put softpaws on my cat and she got
used to them in minutes. And they great on her (purple
ones)! This is such a great alternative to declawing
and I'm sooo glad I didn't have to do that to her.
I probably couldn't have actually. My cat and I are
very, very satisfied customers!

I just want to express my appreciation for a great
invention. So far my cat Donner has left my new living
room furniture alone. What a great idea, and so much
more humane. I absolutely oppose declawing for any
reason, but my male cat is strictly indoor, which
left me in a dilemma when I could finally replace
my old shredded furniture. Also, the picture of the
cat on the Softpaws package.......looks exactly like
Donner! Thanks for a truly useful product.

When we moved to South Florida, we had a 10 yr old
cat who loved to tear up the furniture. So instead
of declawing him, we found ONE vet in the area who
put on soft paws....A WONDERFUL PRODUCT!! Clyde never
messed with the furniture again, and we FINALLY got
him to use A scratching post. He's in Kitty heaven
now. By the way, his was an indoor cat and spent a
lot of time on our screened in porch. I would highly
recommend them to EVERYONE. Now that I know your website,
I will send people to it.

Hi, I want to thank you for sending my soft paws
order. I am very pleased with them and only wish I
had heard about them long before now. My cat just
loved to tear wallpaper - soft paws has now put a
stop to this. I shall be ordering more from you again.
Once again, thank you very much.
- Peter Sheehan, Dublin, Ireland
I thank you, thank you, thank you for this product!
Although I do understand why people do it, I will
never ever de-claw my cats. We are about to move in
to a beautiful new place and have purchased brand
new furniture. I had heard about soft paws and ordered
and I was nervous about how the application
was gonna go. I have 2 cats. Milo is laid back and
receives insulin shots 2 x's a day. He does not need
the sp's. Missy, on the other hand, is not as laid
back. I have been massaging her toes all week in preparation.
I came home and headed straight into the bathroom.
I grabbed her up and the WHOLE process took less than
FIVE mins.! It is also the cutest thing I have ever
seen. She is a pastel calico but her legs and paws
are solid white. I bought the red so they really stand
out! I am a customer for life and will tell everyone
about this product!
