Do their claws not come out anymore? Would they still be able to get a mouse or defend themselves if they accidentally got out of the house??

These cover the nail completely while allowing normal extension and retraction of claws then will shed as your cat’s nails grow; generally in 4 - 8 weeks.

How do I know what size to get?
Answer by ChewyApr 27, 2020
The X-Small fits cats up to 5 pounds, the Small fits cats 6 - 8 pounds, the Medium fits cats 9 - 13 pounds, and the Large fits cats 13 pounds and above.

Do you put them on the front AND the back? Or just the front?
Answer by ChewyAug 11, 2018
These nail caps are designed for both the front and back paws.

is the glue strong enough to stop my cat from biting them off?
Answer by ChewyNov 15, 2019
While the glue on these nails is durable, a determined cat may be able to remove these caps. These nail caps are completely safe, painless, non-toxic for cats, and they can pass on through the digestive system. The first few applications of nail caps may draw a cat’s attention, causing some to bite or pick at the nail caps. This is perfectly normal, and almost all cats will leave them alone after a few weeks or a few applications.

one thing that bugs me

all around i like this product its just like every other nail covers. it comes with 3 glues and 3 tips for the glue, but. the one thing that bugs me is that you cant choose which one you want. i did know that beforehand but it still sucks because ive gotten pink twice and i put them on my male. if you want to choose the color its more?? i dont like that. another thing ill say is please dont just look at the picture. it comes with 1 not all three so please read description!!

They don't tell you in the description that this is only one of the three boxes. They will send you a random color. This product is listed in a way to deceive you into thinking you're getting more than what it shows. Further, there is a size selection option, but no color selection option. By doing this, Chewy further deceives you by making you think you're getting all the colors in the product images. I am currently in touch with support trying to rectify this issue. Very sleazy for a company to do. Just show one box in the picture and add a color select. It's not difficult. But like I said already, they're deceiving customers by selling this way, with no integrity or accountability, they'll keep getting away with these sleazebag tactics.

Kitty Caps

We put new carpeting on our stairs and Angel decided to use the new carpet as a stratching post we tried everything to discourage her from doing that. We didn't want to declaw her. These caps did the trick. She got used to them and they don't seem to bother her.

Glue completely dried up.

I went to open up the packed, prepped my cat who is not the most patient when it comes to messing with his paws. And all three tubes of glue were dried up. I'm going to try this brand again (from my local retailer) but it might not be worth your time.

These nail caps are great!

I love these so much. They save my furniture and other items however, one of my cats chews them off. It’s not an easy thing to do either but, she hates them so much and will spend hours chewing them to get them off. My other cat doesn’t mess with them at all and they stay on until they naturally shed off. The way I put them on, and I’ve been doing this since they were kittens. I’ll trim the nails first and then let them run around. When I’m ready to apply the nails I fill two at a time with glue and carefully set them on the lid of this plastic container I use, pick up my cat and appt both, throw treats on the floor for her to find and eat and repeat process. Also, I fill with glue until I see it reading the top. Try not to let it overflow or it becomes a mess.

Our Cat Chewed Them Off The 1st Night

Terrible product. They came right off and we followed the reviews to the T. Our cat then spent the rest of the night chewing the rest of them off.

Works perfectly

I buy large size to fit my 20lb Maine Coon. They stay on well. He doesnt like them going on, so I wrap him like a burrito and pull out a paw to work on. Once they are in place i swear to you he couldn't care less about them. Meanwhile they save my walls, furniture, and skin from his "big boy playfulness". I recommend these but suggest you dont be afraid to use the glue they send with the caps. They saved my coonie from having to be rehomed and to me thats priceless.
