The claw covers will save scratches on my kids and furniture. Boots seems to know she looks better with pink nails. Miss Priss :)
Along with the high energy has come massive amounts of property and skin destruction. Savannah boy's favorite thing to do to greet you (if you've left the room for a while or the house for a few hours, it's all the same to him) is to give you a little warning bark and then, standing in front of you, and launch so he can drape himself across your shoulders. He's not small now. This can be a less than awesome experience for the human involved. Aaaand kitty has a knee issue, so when he launches, we take one for the team.
Enter soft claws. Savannah boy has been trained from the day he entered our house that his nails will be trimmed, and I think that helped a lot in the application process. We chose green claws, by the way. Savannah boy did not indicate a preference when I showed him a preference on the screen.
Putting these on wasn't nearly as bad as I feared. You really just hold a paw, push out a claw, and push on a glue-filled cap. Press and hold. Repeat what seems like zillions of times. We were more stressed out about it than the cat. The most difficult thing about the process was getting the glue into the caps and figuring out how much glue to use. I kept thinking I had it down to a science and then, oops, too much glue and a little would ooze out the top. I probably erred on the side of not enough glue in the end.
Savannah boy dealt pretty well until the end. We were distracting him with little toys and bird YouTube videos so we could get through it. When he was done, he was done, and we rushed through the last two caps. Then we held him for a good 10 minutes that he didn't enjoy to make sure the glue was dry. A ridiculous helping of cat treats was introduced at that point. We are not proud of this.
When Savannah boy was allowed to walk off, he didn't react until he stepped off the rug onto the hardwood floor. And then he sort of stopped short. He didn't realize what was wrong, I think. Just that something wasn't the same as it was before. I was shocked, sure that he would sit down and start gnawing the caps off. But he just ignored the things.
That lasted until nightfall. He is alpha kitty and sleeps on our bed. (Don't worry, the other two have heated cat beds.) Part of his routine is ridiculously loud bathing before he falls asleep. That night he discovered the claw covers. He knew they were NOT NATURAL and needed to be TAKEN OUT. We rock, paper, scissored, and my husband was dispatched to run the cat around with a stick toy until he could bathe no more.
The bathing went on every night like that -- still does, weeks later, but we've figured out that he can't really get the caps off unless they're loose and ready to come off anyway. The gnawing is an annoying sound, though. It seems like he does it less, but maybe I'm just getting used to it.
So, how long did our first application last on the most active domestic breed of cat? We lost the caps on both dew claws and one claw on the right paw in the first three days. By the end of the week, another right paw claw and one left paw claw had disappeared. By the end of the second week, we still had all of the left paw claws covered except for one and the dew claw, but we were down to 3 caps on the right. By now, the end of the third week, the left paw has two lonely little caps and that's it.
It's a success, I think, enough to go another round. We'll use more glue on all of the caps this time, and I'm trying to come up with a different way to load the caps and measure the glue. Perhaps a large bore syringe will work? I don't exactly have any of those on hand, but I'm off to search the craft section for glue applicators. Wish us luck.
If you're struggling to protect yourself or your stuff, you might as well give these caps a try. If your cat is not a Savannah, you'll probably have even better luck than we did.
Update: Still give these 5 stars. Two weeks since application none of the caps have come off. My cat honestly does not seem to notice they are there at all. I wish someone had told me about these years ago.
Third update: I've never written this many updates but I have, in all seriousness, never been this satisfied with a product. My cat didn't lose a single cap for 6 weeks. She still does not seem to notice they are there and all of my new carpet is still intact! Highly, highly, recommend.
Long term tip: I suggest you play with your cat's paws on a regular basis, so they get used to people touching their paws. I fiddle around with my cats' paws all the time (because it's so darn cute and squishy!), so they're all used to me touching them and I can sneak on the soft paws while they're napping. No hiss, no fuss. Suuuuper easy.
P.S. This review is for the small caps, which are too small for our cat even though she is smaller than the recommended weight range for these caps. The medium caps fit her perfectly, I reviewed them and gave them 5 stars.
