Questions & Answers

9 Customer Questions

Will my kitten be able to grip and climb with the caps on? Or will he be able to play with a scratching post/board with the caps on?
Answer by ChewyFeb 28, 2019
Your cat can still climb and make scratching motions, however no damage will occur to your furniture or scratching posts because the claw is effectively covered and protected.

What is the likelyhood they can chew them off?
Answer by ChewyMar 12, 2020
These caps are applied using a strong, kitty-safe adhesive to keep them on. They will shed as your cat’s nails grow; generally in 4 - 8 weeks.

Do you recommend clipping the nails before applying these on?
Answer by ChewyOct 30, 2018
At this time, it's recommended to trim your cats nails to ensure the caps will be able to cover them completely.

Are you supposed to do front and back paws?
Answer by ChewyJul 16, 2022
Kitty Caps can be used on a cat's rear claws. Because cats often keep their rear nails short on their own by biting them and they do most of the damage to furniture by actively scratching it with their front claws, you may not need to apply them to your cat's rear claws. However, the nail caps can be used on the back claws if desired, and there are a couple of situations when it might be a good idea. Applying Kitty Caps to the hind claws will help prevent damage from cats jumping on and off furniture. Also, many people have used Kitty Caps on the hind claws of cats that have skin problems and scratch themselves excessively. The nail caps help decrease or prevent self-inflicted damage in these instances.

I will continue to buy these

My kittens don’t mind the application and certainly don’t mind wearing their nail caps. I did start them a little younger than the recommended age of 12 weeks. They fall off more frequently than expected, however that is offset by the easy application. I give this product 5 stars and will continue to repurchase.

Give them a try

They were alittle hard 4 me to get on, but I think it's because my baby is a Himalayan. The hair around her toes is alot longer than a regular kitty. So would probably be alot easier for another type of kitty. They've been on abit longer than a week, and only one has come off so far. No sign of it anywhere. Praying she didn't swallow it.

This is worth it!

I was worried this would be a hassle/pain to put on. I didn’t want my cat de clawed (9 months old) but he was scratching things he shouldn’t be. (Doesn’t seem to scratch the scratching post - just everything else) I have been trimming his nails since he was young. So he’s used to this and gave me no problems. When it came time to glue the gel caps on, I had to have help just because you needed two hands to put the glue in the tip and place them on the cat. The other person just held my cat. They went on easily this way. I just held the cat to keep him still for a few minutes and then let him go. He never acted for one second like they bothered him. He doesn’t chew on them. He didn’t ever walk differently. He’s tried to scratch things and nothing happened. No tearing anything up! (I did not put these on his back feet - only his front feet.) I have plenty in the package to do this several more times so I feel this is well worth the money!

Love Nail Caps

These are easy to set up and use. The glue holds as well other brands. If cats climb up hardware cloth, they will pop off, as will other brands. It is good to have everything set up, including claw trimming clippers, before you start. Be sure to wrap the cat in a baby blanket, to make it go faster. Hold the cats a little while to let the glue set and give them good girl or boy treats to distract them from chewing on the caps.

They're great

They work great. I was using them because I didn't want to get her declawed, but now after using them I want to get her declawed. They don't last long enough.. she chewed some of them off in days.

nail caps for undeclawed cats

For a first time user, it was a little hard but I think with time, it will get better to apply them.

Don’t waste your time.

I tried to get these on my kitten. Needless to say these are just a waste of money unless you can get a cat to hold still while you put them on. Putting them on consists of putting super glue down in it then placing it on the claw and holding it there. Not happening with my cat.
