Soft Claws: Nail Caps For Cats
What Are Soft Claws?
Developed by a veterinarian, Soft Claws are vinyl nail caps that look like a hollow claw and are glued onto your cat's existing claws. They cover the claw tips so no damage occurs when your cat scratches.
Soft Claws are widely regarded as the safe and humane solution to cat
scratching in the home and are highly recommend as an alternative to declawing because it doesn't harm the cat in any manner, and in most cases, the cat doesn't even notice them!
Choosing The Right Sizes
Soft Claws offer several sizes to make sure they are both secure and comfortable for your cat.
- Kitten: Soft Claws will fit most kittens by the time they reach the age of 12-16 weeks. Kittens up to about 5 months of age and 5 pounds body weight generally fit into the kitten size. It is best not to trim kitten's nails before application because their nails are so small.
- Small: Approximately 6 months of age. Approximately 6-8 pounds. Some kittens at 5 months may need the small size if they are growing fast or are large-breed cats. Small-boned adult cats often wear the small size. If your cat seems smaller than an average full-grown cat, choose small.
- Medium: Approximately 9-13 pounds. Most adult average size cats wear medium.
- Large: Approximately 14 pounds and up. Very large-boned and large-breed cats wear large. Maine Coons, for example, are very large cats and generally wear large.

Soft Claw Testimonials
"What a great product and I wish I had known about them sooner, I could
have saved a lot of my furniture!" ~ JenJen, California
"I love the nail caps! I usually pet and
play with my cat for about 5 minutes after to distract them while the
glue dries. I can find the
clear ones in the stores, but the colored ones let you know immediately
when one comes off." ~ Psyche, North Carolina
"I think declawing in inhumane. That did not keep me from being dissatisfied 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. I recommend these for all cat owners." ~ Kathryn, Ohio
"I was surprised at how easy these are to put on, they stay on, and they save my furniture. I took my cat to the vet with them on and now the vet carries them to offer as a humane alternative to declawing." ~ Allison, Michigan
