Questions & Answers

25 Customer Questions

How do you know what size to order
Answer by ChewyDec 02, 2022
To determine the correct size, weigh your cat. The Kitten and X-Small size are for cats less than 6 months old, the Small is for cats weighing 6-8 pounds, the Medium is for cats weighing 9-13 pounds and the Large is for cats over 14 pounds.

How do I remove them. They are glued on
Answer by ChewyNov 30, 2019
Purdy Paws nail caps fall off with the natural growth of your pets claws. As the nail grows, the outer layer of the claw sheds. If you do not see all nails shed after 4 - 6 weeks, just trim the tip of the nail cap. This will loosen the seal of the soft claws paws nail caps so you can remove it.

Can cats still climb if they are wearing these? How much does it affect their mobility?
Answer by ChewyJun 30, 2020
Purrdy Paw nail caps do not prevent general mobility. Cats can still jump, run, and play as normal. Since the caps completely cover the cat’s nails they would prevent the cat from both scratching and using their claws for climbing or defense. For this reason we recommend Purrdy Paw nail caps for indoor cats.

What is the glue made of? This product says non-toxic but what about the glue
Answer by ChewyOct 03, 2018
This glue is made out of cyanoacrylate.

Soft nail caps

Customer support is the best. Directions say to fill claw caps no more than 2/3 full. Virtually impossible to judge. Adhesive is clear and caps are tiny. Just have to wing it. Very helpful to have a cooperative cat. In my case I ended up with scratches, bites and glue on my fingers. Finally got the caps on and they seem to be staying in place. Yea!

Too large.

Supposed to be size medium. Package says medium but these look more like large or even XL.

It Does It’s Job

It glows in the dark, looks cool and it’s funny. It was difficult to get on, but I just need to practice more.

Not Gonna Work For My Kitten

I had high hopes for these helping to reduce the dozens of cuts I have from my insane kitten. I put them on when she was sleeping and when she woke up, she was NOT. HAVING. IT. I think it actually just amped her up more, having something weird on her paws, and it increased her aggression. She eventually chewed them all off and we are still seeking professional help. if you are like me and have a cat that you love, but that also may be possessed by a demon, these may not be your answer.

Haven't been able to use them.

My cat will not let me put these on so it's kind of hard for me give a review. They sound like a great idea.

works great

my cat keeps gnawing on them and trying to bite them off, but they don't budge.

Works good with practice

I bought for both my dog and cat. Both worked well. Very happy and will keep using. Would like more glow colors in the future.

Cute and works but takes two!

These are cute and definitely stopped her claws from tearing up furniture when she's sprinting around the house or tearing up my hand when we're roughhousing. They were fairly easy to apply once I got the glue open, but the cat wasn't impressed and it definitely took two people to put them on - one to hold the cat, one to apply the cap. She messed with them the first day and now is used to them. She has had one from each paw fall off within a week, but I expected that as nails shed at different rates. Way better option than declawing and used with a scratch avoidance spray, they are very successful.

Adhesive Missing

The nail caps seem great, but when we sat down to put them on our cat, we discovered that the adhesive was not with the package. Not sure what to do now.
