“…Extremely easy to apply and the cats appears not to be bothered…”

Soft Claws are extremely easy to apply and the cats appear not to be bothered by the plastic tips at all. From the moment they were applied they did not try and bite them or scratch with them. They have been wearing them for over 15 weeks! Araina has lost 3 and Oscar still has all 10!

The cat tray liner is no longer shredded and so the cat tray is much easier to clean. The cats still scratch on the scratching post, stair carpet and sofas but no longer do any damage. (All sofas have already been snagged by the cats and some patches of carpet are worn.)

My arms are no longer scratched by the cats kneading me when they are stroked. Though both the cats are good with children there is now no danger of accidental scratches when playing. All in all I’ve been delighted with the product and would highly recommend it to the indoor cat owner.

“…It has proved to be a very good training aid…”

Dear Sirs, I should like to take this opportunity to thank you for providing such a superb product. My cat, Pebbles, is 18 months old and has worn Soft Claws since we adopted her in March 2007. During her first few weeks my wallpaper was ripped to shreds near her feeding bowls and by the kitchen door, not to mention some nasty scratches both to myself and my young son.

We came across these Claw covers quite by accident whilst researching de-clawing and decided to try the product immediately. I found your staff to be very friendly and informative and the product arrived within 24 hours. Pebbles accepted the Soft Claws immediately and no further damage was done to our home. It has proved to be a very good training aid. We are now adopting two more kittens – one girl 10 weeks old and one boy 6 months old. I have just placed my second order for Soft Claws – kitten – clear and young cat – small in pink and blue.

I would recommend, without any hesitation, that everyone with a cat should try these. They are very easy to apply, look stylish and ensure that your new arrival(s) can enjoy your home with you without fear of damage to either person or property. I would suggest that you forward literature to all veterinary clinics, cat protection league and caring for cats so that they can inform prospective adoptees.

“…My cats love this product!…”

My cats love this product! I love the different colours available and it’s definitely a talking point when friends come over!

“…Thank you Soft Claws…”

After getting our first cat, I quickly realised that not all cats will use their scratching post! Thank you Soft Claws.

“…My cat, who has an allergy, was scratching her face to pieces…”                                                                

My vet recommended this product as my cat, who has an allergy, was scratching her face to pieces. Gretel has worn them for about 2 months now and although we are not any nearer knowing what causes the itching/scratching, at least her face is healing. Quite cute looking too. Also, on laminate floors, it sound like a tap dance!

“…a massive difference to her quality of life…”                                                               

I have a cat with a *severe* skin allergy and these caps have made a massive difference to her quality of life. They’re only on her back paws, and now she can scratch away without breaking the skin and causing repeat infections (necessitating washing, topical cream and anti-biotics).

“…I am very pleased with how long the claws stay on…”

My cat, Miss Molly, suffers from a skin condition similar to eczema. She is constantly itchy, scratching her back causing very nasty sores. She has been on steroids for this problem but it has never been 100% successful. She wears a T-shirt to prevent the scratching but eventually rips through them. However, about 6 weeks ago I found out about Soft Claws and was happy to give them a try. They were very easy to put on Molly and once on, she didn’t seem to even notice that they were there. Since putting them on Molly has still been scratching but due to the soft round tips she has not caused any sores on her back. She no longer causes any damage to the furniture and can’t scratch anybody when she’s feeling naughty. I am very pleased with how long the claws stay on as only two claws have fallen off in 6 weeks. I want to say a big thank you and will definitely continue to use this product. Thank you, many thanks

“…This superb product has completely transformed Peaches life!…”

We have a self-mutilating cat called Peaches.  For years we tried everything we could to help her – conventional medicine, homeopathic medicine, jumpers with the sleeves cut off, and collars covered in gauze.  You name it we’ve tried it, but nothing seemed to work until I discovered Soft Claws on the internet.  This superb product has completely transformed Peaches life!

We trimmed her claws and stuck pink Soft Claws on to her back claws.  She is now able to scratch without hurting herself.  For years she has ripped herself to pieces with constant scratching but now she has Soft Claws she can scratch without causing any damage.  This has also had a very positive knock on effect on her general wellbeing, she is a much happier cat and she has even started to play again. Before, when her scratching was bad, she would not play, talk, and would often shiver, wet the bed and hide.  Now she is a very happy cat, who talks, plays and generally wants you to cuddle her.  We have been using Soft Claws for 9 months and the difference is incredible.  I wish we had discovered them sooner!

I don’t usually sing the praises of products, but Soft Claws has made such a difference, I’ve told everyone I know (including our Vets).  Very easy to use and it’s saved us a fortune in Vets bills!

Mrs Jones - Near Marlow Bucks

I am writing from Poochy Paws, in Cornwall. We have a kitty named Garfield; he is a three year old Polydactyl. He has a disorder known only as self-mutilating behaviour. He has no skin disease, no fungus or parasites, no ear mites, and no viruses which can be tested.  Also our Dog seems to be fine, it’s just Garfield.

The Soft Claws have helped to protect his skin. Garfield has his beautiful pink paws; only real men can wear pink, you know! He looks so flippin’ cute. He is still able to rub the fur off around his neck and face, but at least now he cannot break the skin, and that is a big, big help. I bet you never figured Soft Claws for this use. We can’t thank you enough.  By the way we loved them so much we decided to sell them on our website!

“…The cats seem to actually enjoy the attention…”

Recently, we moved into a new home. Along with the house came new furniture and carpeting. Our three cats have a habit of investigating anything in the house that’s new and using their claws to make it their own. Since we use Soft Claws, it wasn’t a problem. The cats still scratched at the couches, chairs, and carpet but there was no damage. We have found the product easy to apply. The cats seem to actually enjoy the attention they get while we do the application. My wife and I enjoy the fact that we don’t have to constantly be vigilant for scratching behavior in order to protect our investment.

“…My cats can now scratch away at anything…”

Our cats never took to scratching posts, and we tried several deterrent products without success. As a result, our furniture and carpet always paid the price. When we purchased new furniture over a year ago, I decided to give Soft Claws a try. My cats can now scratch away at anything without devaluing our home and furniture! We also now have a 1-year-old son who loves chasing the cats, and the Soft Claws have saved him from being scratched numerous times. We are so happy to have found a product that is best for both parties: our cats can follow their natural scratching instincts while we maintain the condition of our home and the health of our son!

“…I guess this sounds like ‘another’ thank you…”

I just wanted to say thank you. I guess this sounds like “another” thank you, but this really is a fantastic product! I really wish I had known about this before I gave away my cat. I’d never do it again and I still miss her, but it was my only alternative at the time. I feel awful about it.

Now, having leather furniture and a scratchy Terrier, something else had to be done and WOW when the leather repairman came and repaired the sofa he suggested and handed me a flyer; said this is all I’ll ever need, was he right! Please don’t raise your prices! That’s another plus that makes it affordable for everyone, not just those celebrities! Thanks, and I’ll be ordering again and I will be spreading the word of what a fantastic product this is!

“…I think that declawing is cruel – I can’t believe they do it in America…” –

I think declawing is cruel – I can’t believe they do it an America! That didn’t stop me from wanting to put them up for adoption when my cats scratched up my furniture. I’ve been using these covers for about 4 months now and think they are great. My cats are very cooperative when I put them on and don’t notice them after they’ve been on for 10 minutes. My cats and I are very happy. I recommend these for all cat owners. Order these and you and your cat will soon be at peace with each other.

“…they stopped scratching immediately…”

The scratching post I bought for my cats, only interested one of them, as the others preferred to scratch other objects in the house which was a massive headache for our new family. We tried Soft Claws and found that it really does work! After a day or two of the cats wearing their nails in – we found that they stopped scratching immediately.

“…Soft Claws has allowed me and my cat to live happily together…”

I have been using Soft Claws since 1999 with great success.  They are an excellent solution to cat scratching problems.  This simple yet ingenious product is highly effective at preventing damage to property and people from cat scratches.  Soft Claws is an excellent alternative to declawing.  The nail caps are completely safe, non-toxic and extremely well tolerated by cats.  They are simple to apply, ensuring excellent client compliance.  Cat owners are often ecstatic to learn about this product and are grateful that their veterinarian provided them with this effective solution.

Soft Claws are also an effective therapeutic agent against self-trauma caused by cats with pruritic (itchy) skin conditions.  Application of the nail caps to hind claws effectively blunts the nail so the cat causes little damage to himself while scratching.  This allows the tissue to heal faster and often eliminates the need for an e-collar.  Cat owners absolutely love Soft Claws.  One of the most common praises I hear is “Soft Claws has allowed me and my cat to live happily together and both have what we want.” Plus, many people love the colors and showing their accessorized cat off to their friends.

“…Soft Claws could prevent many cats from being re-homed…”

I’m a Veterinary Nurse with many animals. After having a baby, priorities change and whilst I do love my animals my baby always comes first.

One of my cats Suki has been unpredictable and has swiped him a few times – she recently scratched him near his eye. Of course I considered re-homing her but I am very attached to her. I have put Soft Claws on her now and it seems to be a good solution so far. She doesn’t seem bothered at all by them and although she could still bite at least I know she cannot injure my baby by swiping.

She was also the 1 out of 4 of my cats who was destructive and has ruined several pairs of curtains / sofas / trousers etc. This has also stopped with Soft Claws – so, so far so good – I would recommend them to anyone in a similar situation. I believe the use of Soft Claws could prevent many cats from being re-homed and I wish more people were aware of them.

“…Suited for cats with limited out door access…”

Some people were asking about Soft Claws. I work at a vet, and apply these things every day, to all kinds of cats. Here is my take: Description: A set of rubber nail covers which are glued to the nail, after trimming, with a super-glue-like substance. They are used to keep the kitty from scratching things that may be damaged by unaltered nails. They are really, really easy to apply if kitty cooperates, and will let you trim her nails easily. They take about 5-8 minutes to apply, once you get the hang of it. They are relatively inexpensive (about £10-12/set, if applied at the vet, and they last 1-3 months.) They are even less expensive if you buy your own kit and apply them at home. They do not interfere with normal claw usage, but protect things you do not want scratched, fairly effectively. Some cats do very, very well with them. Overall impression: I think trimming nails often (every 1-2 weeks) is a better, more wholistic solution to scratching problems, than Soft Claws. If you are unable to do this, Soft Claws may be a solution for you. Overall, it is a very good product but really more suited for cats with limited out door access.

“…An ideal product for cats who live an indoor, house-cat life…”

I’ve been involved in cat rescue and breeding for eleven years. I often re-home disabled rescues, or place pedigree kittens in city homes where outside access isn’t possible. That’s where Soft Claws come in useful. Soft Claws is an ideal product for cats who live an indoor, house-cat life. Soft Claws prevent furniture and carpet damage caused by excessive scratching. Once you’ve applied them they are easy to use, no more difficult than trimming claws.

Persephonies Korats have been recommending Soft Claws for several years now. (In common with the inventor of Soft Claws, I would not recommend using this product on cats who have outside access. Your cat’s claws are his only defense against dog or fox attack.)

“…We are so happy with Soft Claws!!…”

We are so happy with Soft Claws!! We just moved into a new flat with real hard wood floors, which are gorgeous. Although, my dog, Fidgy, was scratching the floor whilst running about in our flat. Fidgy was even scratching our leather sofa sometimes as well…. 🙁

A friend of mine told me about Soft Claws so I looked on the internet and found your website! We ordered “pink” so that Fidgy could really show her femininity!! Fidgy no longer scratches the floor or the sofa which makes us very happy indeed. We have also noticed that Fidgy is able to get more grip, so she’s no longer sliding across our floor. I’ve also found that they seem to last anywhere between 1-2 months before having to be replaced, which is great. They are very easy to put on and well worth buying if you’d like to save your floors and/or your leather sofa. Thank you Soft Claws!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂

The package came in the mail really fast and we don’t have any more problems with scratching the wood floor. I was very happy to see this and would recommend all dog owners with wooden floor to get them.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

“I HAVE BEEN A VERY SICK AND SAD KITTY UNTIL SOFT CLAWS SAVED THE DAY!”

Thank you soooooo much for my pretty pink Soft Claws. I have been a very sick and sad Kitty until Soft Claws saved the day! Recently I was diagnosed with kitty acne which is a horrible black, gooey, blobby, itchy skin problem that infected under my chin. The vet gave my Mommy antibacterial soap to wash me with but unfortunately it was so itchy that I broke my skin and spread the infect to my eyes and the soft tissue above my eyes to the point where they were so swollen I could only see out of little slits.

Because of my incessant scratching and me spreading the infection, my Mommy had to put something that looks like a clown collar on me so that I didn’t make my infection any worse. Mommy was then scared I would get stuck in something outside with the clown collar on, so I wasn’t aloud to go out and play with my friends either… sniff.

Then my Mommy bought some Soft Claws which changed everything! No I don’t have to have the clown collar on because if I scratch myself I can’t break my skin and I can go outside and play…. yippeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee. I am a very happy Kitty thanks to Soft Claws and I have very cute paws.
