I received the soft claws and so far have been extremely happy with them! I put them on Gizmo my 2 year old Ragdoll, who is my biggest scratcher on Friday night as soon as they got here. I was really expecting him to have a fit, but since he is used to having me clip his nails anyway, I had them on in less than 10 minutes. Since then, he has only lost one from a dewclaw. I may not have had enough glue on it though. Taz, my 3yo Ragdoll is next. He doesn't scratch the furniture very often, but he did on Saturday like he was asking me for trouble! LOL It will take a bit longer to get them on him, I'm sure. You have a great product and I will be purchasing more I can guarantee you. Now I can get my furniture recovered and not worry about them tearing it up again! Thank you so much.

Let me just say that I am the last person who would have ever considered putting caps on my cat's nails! I've converted. Soft Paws are a miracle! We were seriously going to give away our cat because we couldn't deal with the destruction anymore and nothing else helped. Then our vet told us about Soft Paws. They are very easy to put on. (We found it easiest to have my husband hold her down while I put the caps on. I also determined they stayed on better if you put a little more glue in the caps than the instructions say.)
Our cat didn't mind them at all, even at first. Now, 5 weeks after the first application, only one has been shed. And our expensive leather chair is safe (not to mention my nerves)! Thank you!!!!

Just a note to say thank you for the great product! I tried it on my cat and she took to it just fine. As I am against declawing, I figured I'd try it out.I have already convinced one other cat owner to buy the product. I hope many others become familiar with the product. It really is great! Again, thanks for the fantastic product!
- Sonia Kossoris
First of all - I love Soft Paws. My kitty didn't even blink when I put them on her. Thanks for a great product. I'm so glad that I don't have to put Fluffy through the whole "de-clawing" ordeal. She handles having Soft-paws so well - I was totally amazed. Thanks again.
I don't have a question, but really felt the need to let you know how happy I am with your product. I have had a cat declawed in the past, and remember how she tripped over her feet and was obviously so uncomfortable. I recently put SOFT PAWS on my two cats, Bobby and Gremlin. I had $1500.00 in new furniture delivered the same day, and they were a life saver. I have already recommended your product to my friends with cats, and will continue to do so. Way to go SOFT PAWS!
- Mary Ann...A very satisfied customer
Just wanted to thank you so very much for such an excellent product. Both of my cats adjusted very quickly to their "Soft Paws" and of course, I'm absolutely thrilled that my new rug in our living room won't be absolutely ruined! Thanks again...I am one very satisfied customer!
By all means...include my feedback on your website! I read the testimonials on your website before I bought the soft paws, which really helped me in my decision to buy them. I hope my input will help others do the same.
- H. Bryant
My cat has had his soft paws for one week now. I am very pleased with the look and the feel of the caps. When I got him I thought I would have to get him declawed to protect our belongings, after all, my friends cat has torn her home to shreds! But a co-worker told me about this site, and that he has been using the caps on his cat for quite a while. Although over his lifetime it will cost more to keep caps on those paws, I am much more happy that he will not have surgery, and I am sure he is too! That happiness is worth it. Thank you for having such a great product.
- Tillie Buckler
I just wanted to tell you that this product is so wonderful. I am so glad that they are great alternatives instead of declawing a cat. I have directed many friends to this site and had them order these instead of them going and having the claws removed.
Thank you so much for coming up with this product. This saves cats from having to go through terrible pain and helps out the cat owner in making a good decision on taking care of their cat instead of butchering their paws.
- Karyn Bullock
Hi. Just wanted to let you know I was successful in getting 8 soft paws on... did all but the inside of the paw. She hated them going on.. but I did 1 or 2 at a time and then gave her a pounce treat. She does not seem to mind having them on .. she uses her scratching posts and all seems normal. Thank you again for your advice.. I hope the all don't fall off at once as I could be in trouble if I have to start from scratch.
- Chris Callahan [aka Simba's Mom]
Received the Soft Paws. Very effective indeed. Will buy some more in the future.

I have used soft paws for the first time on my cat Tuni and they are MARVELOUS...it didn't even take her much time to get used to them! I never liked the idea of declaw but I just got some new furniture and was pondering it. My cat is now 8 yrs old and I felt it would be too risky and traumatic for her at her age, so the soft paws are a blessing.
I started using Soft Paws on my cat, Cleo, one year ago. I am still amazed at how well they work for us! My cat doesn't even notice that she has them on and I only have to replace one on average, once a week. It is well worth the cost to me and I'm sure my cat is much happier than if I were to declaw her. I just wish I had tried them sooner because my last couch (which was very expensive) was completely destroyed by her. I tell everyone I know how great they are...they think I have stock in your company!
Thank you for an awesome product...and fast delivery!

I am writing to you today to tell you what a great product Soft Paws are. They were easy to apply, and "Bob" doesn't even realize he's wearing them. Bob was hit by a car seven months ago and had extensive damage to the right side of his face when we adopted him. He lost the vision in his right eye and his nasal passage was crushed on the right side also. Since then he has persisted to scratch the right side of his face with his right rear claws until bloody, so he's been wearing a cone for most of the last seven months. His vet tells me he's fine, but I'm not so sure. Anyway, Bob's cone came off today for the last time, he thanks you and I Thank You.

I just wanted to write you a quick thank you! First and foremost, thank you for offering this wonderful way to NOT have your cat declawed. I was at my wits end with the cat I adopted from the Humane Society - she was always testing her claws on my furniture, my daughter, and myself. Now, we don't have to fear her sitting on our laps!! Plus, she looks really cute with bright pink claws!!
Secondly, and most important to me as a consumer, thank you for offering excellent customer service! I called your 800 number today to inquire on getting some additional glue for my Soft Paws. Not only did I get a prompt call back, the representative from your company was very kind, helpful, and offered to send me a couple tubes of glue and the application tips! Having been in customer service positions for 10+ years, I am always hypercritical of the service I am given and found your representatives to be above and beyond excellent. Thank you again! ps. my cat thanks you too!

I made the mistake of having a cat declawed (all 4 paws). His personality changed a lot. He acted like he was in retractable pain. I felt soooo bad, but it was too late. I have a Maine Coon and a mixed breed also. I just ordered soft paws for both of them. I didn't have my show cat declawed because he is "special". But I realized that all of my pets are special. My children are grown and my grandchildren are around frequently and we stress the importance of treating animals like people. If they wouldn't want something done to them we teach them not to do it to the animals either. It has changed my philosophy toward a lot of things. I didn't realize how much I have changed, for the better, until I promote safety and humane treatment for all living creatures. I am proud of you and the work you do to help the animals. I wish I had a Noah's ark so I could have two of every living creature on the earth, but my husband likes to eat, therefore currently we have only 2 snakes and 2 cats. But I wish I had more.

Thank you. I just had them put on and he doesn't seem too concerned about them, so I think they are going to work out great. Great product!

I just wanted to write to you to tell you what a wonderful product Soft Paws is. I live in a rented apartment and my cat is destroying them. I was worried about my landlord making us pay for them. I didn't want to declaw Mickey, but I was running out of alternatives. I did an internet search about declawing and saw Soft Paws referenced many times. I ordered them and put them on right away. He was not distressed at all while I applied them and he hasn't licked at them yet. So far so good. Now when he scratches at the rug nothing happens. I am so happy I found an alternative to maiming my best friend. Thanks again!
- Amy Iannuzzi, Quincy, MA
Thanks! By the way, I can't tell you how much my grandmother's oriental rug appreciates Soft Paws...the cats were tearing it up so badly I had just about decided to put it back into storage when our cat sitter told us about Soft Paws. They saved the day; now we can enjoy the rug without fretting about the cats destroying it--and I love the double-takes guests do when they spot blue, red, pink, and purple nails! (Have you thought about adding green so we can decorate them for Christmas?)
I received my order today. It was much easier than I expected to put on My little troublemaker... and so far they're working! I had to write and say thank you for such a great product. So far so good!

I just wanted to tell you that I absolutely love my kitties Soft Paws. Actually, so does he! They work so well and I just want to thank you!
- Michele Quick
A vet receptionist told me that Soft Paws "don't work very well, because you have to keep re-applying them all the time," and hence, they do not carry them.
Well, for my purposes, they work great. My cat has diabetes, which causes any wounds he gets to take longer to heal. Sometimes, he wrestles with my other cats and ends up with a small scratch on the back of his neck. He scratches it with his back claws, causing it to spread and preventing it from healing. A "lampshade" collar rides too high to protect the wound. Before I was able to find Soft Paws, the best I could do was apply a band-aid, then a collar made from an old sock. At wits end, I had to consider rear declaw, which would have been very risky considering the diabetes. If such a situation has not come to your attention in the past, I think it may be valuable in your marketing efforts. Feel free to use this information as you will. Thank you!

I was adopted by two adult cats, Duke and Molly, a couple years ago.
Scratching became a big problem. As a responsible pet owner, getting rid of them was out of the question. However, allowing them to damage my property needed to come to an abrupt halt. My veterinarian had three options: tendonectomy, declawing or Soft Paws. Because of their age, and ONLY because of their age, I didn't feel right about the first two options. I decided to try Soft Paws. I applied Soft Paws to the front claws on both of my cats. After seeing the results, I applied them to their back claws as well. This product works very well. This is saving my clothes and furniture. My recommendations for 1st time users..........the first application is the worst, but after that you're only replacing one every once in a while.....so tough out the first application. A second set of hands wouldn't hurt either. When I have to replace one, I kind of incorporate it into affection or playing. If they resist, I back off for a bit. After applying just a few, you'll be a pro. I'm so glad this product was developed. It's reduced the stress of a pet owner tremendously. Thanks Soft Paws!!!

My name is Jessica Onstine. My 11-month old kitty's name is Kyra. She was bound and determined to scratch her way under the door to the spare room in our apartment. My husband and I are very morally against declawing and would never put our little one through that, but my husband was very adamant that we had to find a solution or get rid of Kyra.
I tried the sprays that are supposed to deter the cat, but they actually drew her to that spot more than before. I tried putting tape on the carpet in that spot, but that didn't work either. I was running out of solutions fast, and my husband was losing patience.
Then one day, as I was looking for suggestions on the internet, I came across your website. I was very skeptical, but also desperate. I called the 800-number to ask a few questions and was pleasantly surprised at how helpful your customer service was. I decided to give it a chance, for Kyra.
I sent a check for one pack of purple caps. (I ordered purple so I could see the ones she chewed off on our white carpet while she adjusted.) They arrived just days later, to my relief. I attempted to put them on Kyra myself, but she is very athletic and strong, and does not like to be restrained. So I enlisted the help of my husband when he got home. He held her and applied the caps. It was very easy once I could work with both hands.
Kyra wasn't sure about them at first. She licked and tugged, as I was advised she would, but in just three days she adjusted and no longer notices them or tries to take them off. When we play she can't scratch me, and when Victor and I sleep, she can't tear up the carpet! It's wonderful. We're so glad there is a humane solution. Thank you so much!
- Jessica Onstine, Rancho Cordova, CA
Day 2, and they are still on! I did spy Ernie trying to scratch the carpet one time, but he didn't attack it with the usual gusto. I am very pleased. I work with lots of pet enthusiasts, and I am keeping them updated on the "Ernie Saga". Hopefully, you will get a few spin-off customers. I was amazed how easy they were to apply, and how little the cat noticed they were on.

I have just received my Soft Paws in Australia and think they're great - I was wondering if you need a distributor out here? declawing is illegal and Australians are great pet lovers. Cheers
- David Reese
I found you on the internet. I gave our vet a call just to see if he Had them available not expecting they had ever hear of them. To my pleasant surprise, not only did he have Soft Paws but they glue them on. My cat now has Soft Paws!!!! Thanks for offering this product to us animal lovers. Millie doesn't seem to be bothered at all by the Soft Paws. I had expected a period of adjustment but none has been needed. I just wanted to say these are awesome! Now, I'm not afraid to buy the leather couch I wanted. They stay on too! Check out the pic of my cat, Neko.
Soft Paws are so great, we put them on our kitten and he didn't mind a bit. He loses a couple a week, but it's still worth it. We have a house bunny and were concerned about kitten's claws in bunny's eyes so Soft Paws really solved a major problem for us. Plus, our oriental rugs, furniture and not to mention our skin are also all safe from our sweet kitten's needle like claws. The greatest bonus is that we have so much fun playing with him since we don't have to worry about getting scratched. He gets even more attention so he's a very happy kitty! Lately he's learning to bite however. How about some caps for his sharp little teeth? (only kidding!)
We're placing another order this week to make sure we can keep up with our little one's "manicures". Thanks again for a wonderful product!
- Linda Santillo
All three cats have them on and all three are doing just fine. I am just amazed out of three cats we didn't have a least a little problem with one. All three adapted immediately.
I have never liked declawing cats, but its' always been the only solution offered to pet owners in the past. With soft paws there is an option maybe people will try before declawing. I certainly will spread the word. I am so happy my daughter told me about soft paws, as Baxter ( my late in life cat) was starting to cause some minor damage in certain spots around the house. Thanks again
- Barbara Schofield, Baltimore
What's up Doc?, I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you. Soft Paws works surprising well!!! I have a roommate who is an advocate of declawing our cat, but it's no longer a worry. Soft Paws saved her claws.
What a wonderful product!!!!! My 3 year old cats have already destructed 3 different couches and also the carpet outside my bedroom in our 8 month old home. I was so frustrated. I heard about your product from my neighbor who heard about it from a friend and so on, and now my Cleo and Sophie are trotting around in their Soft paws in fact they went in yesterday for their 3rd application. I take them into the vet for those of you who don't want to deal with putting them on yourself. It is wonderful... 20 minute visit to the vet (for 2 cats). Also I have a six month old baby that is learning to pull cat hair and it is so nice to know that he is not going to have a cat swipe him in the eye with a very sharp claw! Thank you for Soft Paws. Best invention ever made!

I just had to write to let you know what a great product this is. I have two cats who have destroyed just about every piece of furniture we own. We recently ordered new furniture, and I was in a panic over how to protect it. We've tried just about every method you could think of to stop them from scratching the furniture with very limited success. While doing some research on alternatives to declawing, I came across Soft Paws. I ordered them but honestly was very skeptical as to whether they would work. They arrived so quickly, within two days of placing the order.
I put them on immediately which wasn't hard at all. Both our cats are used to us trimming their nails so nobody gave us any trouble with the application process. Mr. Whiskers was so bored with the whole process that he even fell asleep while we were applying his nails!!
They have left them on and really pay very little attention to their feet. They still stretch and "scratch" the furniture like they always did, but now there is no damage done!! Its the perfect solution. We check them daily to be sure nobody has lost any. I would recommend the colored nails because its so easy to pick the cat up and quickly inspect all ten toes within seconds. They're also easy to spot laying on the carpet, etc., if one does come loose. Different colors for each cat also lets me know immediately who I need to find for a fast inspection! Over the past three weeks, I have replaced only a few nails here and there. I will NEVER, EVER be without Soft Paws again! Thanks for an amazing product!

I am so happy with Soft Paws that I have been recommending them to all my friends and family who are cat owners. I have also posted a message on the cat message board on the web where we discuss cat problems letting everyone know how happy we are with this product along with the link to your web site where they can find out more about Soft Paws and order them. I can't tell you what a relief it is to not have to worry about them destroy things! Thanks again!
