I seen these things the other day and I had never seen them before, They are these fake nails that you glue on your cat's nails. I don't know what to think about them but I want to know what you guy's think about it. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/huh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":confused:"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/huh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":confused:">

Like soft paws? If so then I'm for them as they are an alternative to declawing.

Not sure what they were called, I didn't pay too much attention to them but they came in different colors and apparently you just glue them on just like fake human nails.

My family had tried those on my cat when I was younger, a vet applied them, and they didn't stay on for long. Personally, I find it's better to just keep up with trimming my cats' claws regularly, as well as to give them a scratching post to use.

My cats would kill me if I tried to apply those onto them <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p">

They look like a good idea, but it seems pretty silly to use any color other than the clear ones.

Why not just trim their nails and provide a scratching post? Works for me <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p">

I have used them before. They stayed on maybe a month I think? At least a few weeks. They served the purpose at the time (a short term rental house and a cat who insisted on tearing up carpet - had to have a carpet repairer come out and repair the damage). They weren't difficult at all to put on, but you and the cat have to both be comfortable with the process. Or you might go to a vet for it.<br><br>
Like others said, they must be indoors only. I think it's easiest to keep the nails trimmed and provide scratchers and probably give up on some of your furniture, if you have that kind of cat. But as an alternative to declawing they're great and I highly recommend them if you're needing to blunt the claws that much.

I think I am going to try them, My kitten likes to use my legs as a ladder to get up on the counter when I am making food, so yeah I am going to try them........ If I can get my cat to be still long enough <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/inquisitive.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":stinkeye:">

I just let my cat destroy everything in my house, works well enough for me <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/laugh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lol:"><br><br><br><br>
(Don't worry, I'm not suggesting you do this - since I know not everyone can..)
