Ollie's Soft Paws

Exhibit #473 in the Case of Melinda is a crazy kitty momma - I bought some acrylic nails for our cat.  Kitty mommas in the know told me about this alternative to declawing.  I thought it was a bit extreme at first, but after a few weeks of unintentional scratches, climbing up the shower curtain, etc. I dove off the deep end.  Well, diving off the deep end might have been ordering the glitter nails, and I opted for clear Soft Paws.  Just wait til you see his Christmas nails though - it'll be awesome sauce.

Three weeks after living with them, I'm ready to give my endorsement.  I tried taping me applying the nails, but after I got one glued in between my toes and nearly dropped the camera, I settled for an After video.



Are you mitigating the effects of your pets' claws?  What's working for you?

PS: This is a message from Ollie - O989df (It was a two pawed message).

  1. Ahh, he's just so cute!! He looks like a wonderful, cuddly pet. I've never heard of those nail acrylics before for cats, but what a great solution! Can't wait to see his christmas nails!

  3. Ahhh Ollie is SO cute. In college, I had a cat I used the soft-paws on, but she never took to them. She spent all of her time chewing on them until the came off, even after several applications. After she bloodied her toes trying to rip them off once, I decided to give up. I'm so glad to hear he likes his! They seem like such a perfect solution to clawing issues.

  4. Aw, adorable baby!!! Our cats are fairly terrible about having their nails cut, so I've considered Soft Paws. May have to actually try it out one of these days....
