If My Cat's Wouln't Chew Them off They'd Be Great.
on February 11, 2012
First things first, my cats are angels and they don't scratch on a thing in the house. The only reason I purchased these was because I was moving into a new apartment that would only allow declawed kittys. Well, they said they'd settle with a kitty that has caps on their nails so they don't scratch. So, I went with these. They really are great in the sense that if you had a cat that scratched everything, they wouldn't be able to anymore.
Application was far more difficult than stated though. I usually have my fiancee help with things like trimming nails and baths and such, but I was home alone when I got these, so I gave it a shot alone. The cats just don't like their claws popped out like that. So, they fought a bit, but in the end allowed me to glue these all on.
My biggest complaint is that the cats were so easily able to chew some of these off (after a few days that is) that it wasn't really worth it. Then, when they had all but two off, the two that didn't come off also didn't come off for a really really long time. I actually emailed the company and they told me how to remove them. That didn't work, so I ended up having to kind of cut them off. It didn't damage their claws or anything, but it just seemed so cruel to me.
BUT, that all being said, if you really need an alternative to declawing (or you just have a crazy kitty :P ) I would say these would work, because they do. Just make sure you have someone there to help you!
