It's a well documented fact that I'm borderline obsessed with my kitten, Judah.
Judah is really good at not intentionally scratching anything but his little post, but he does have a tendency to accidentally scratch the couch when he runs across it, or scratch our legs when he tries to jump onto our laps, or hands when he's playing with us.
After drawing blood on the Mr several times, he suggested that maybe we get Judah declawed (I really don't want to get into a comment war about the pros or cons of declawing, so don't start it). But, after doing some research, I decided that I was not super keen on the idea of declawing.
So on Monday I went to Petco and picked up some Soft Claws. Soft Claws are nail caps that glue on to the cat's claws. It covers the claw tips so no damage occurs when the cat scratches.
It took the Mr. and I about 10 minutes to clip Judah's nails and apply the Soft Claws. It was definitely a team effort to subdue the whining kitty.
Here's how they look...
See the little clear caps?
I was sceptical if the soft claws would work, but so far, so good! Judah fussed with them a little at first, but now he doesn't even notice they are there. And now he's not causing damage when he runs on the couch or plays with us! So great!
(Note: this is not a paid review. I was not asked to do this by anyone associated with Soft Claws, Petco, Humane Society, etc. I value the ethics of my blog and vow to never do "posts-for-pay" on this site. I'm just really excited that I don't have a scratchy kitty anymore and wanted to share this find!)
Has anyone else ever tried Soft Claws or Soft Paws?
On a separate note, check out Judah's new favorite sleeping spot...
Yep, the sink. This cat LOVES the water. Strange, right? If we run the water over him while he's in the sink, he just sits there and plays with it and gets soaked! Does anyone else have a cat that loves water?
