Save your floors and furniture with Soft Claws Nail Caps for Kittens. A safe and pain-free alternative to declawing, Soft Claws works by simply capping your cat’s claws with a vinyl cover. It applies easily with a safe and non-toxic adhesive, and will not interfere with the normal extension and retraction of their nails—which means even the fussiest kitty won’t mind wearing them. So your cat can go about his routine of pawing and playing, and you don’t have to worry about unwanted scratches. Easy to apply and long lasting, it’s made right here in the USA.

Key Benefits
  • Developed by a veterinarian as a non-surgical declaw alternative and made in the USA.
  • Vinyl caps cover nails and protect against destructive scratching. Easy application with a safe and non-toxic glue.
  • Cleat Lock System features a series of self-locking cleats for an improved grip, and the Soft Cuff design fits snugly around the nail.
  • Fits most kittens at 16 weeks of age. Does not interfere with normal claw extension and retraction.
  • Each application lasts four to six weeks, and each kit comes with a four to six-month supply.
What's Included

(40) nail caps, (2) tubes of adhesive, applicator tips and easy-to-follow instructions.

  • Trim the tip of your cat's nails. Trim just enough to allow the nail cap to fit all the way to the base of the nail.
  • Fill nail caps 1/3 full with adhesive. Gently squeeze the nail cap to evenly distribute the glue and release any air bubbles. If the glue oozes out of the nail cap, you have inserted too much adhesive. Remove some of the glue by squeezing it onto a paper towel.
  • Extend nails by gently pressing thumb on top with index finger on bottom of paw -- slide nail caps onto nail.
  • Observe cat for five minutes before release. You can play with your cat or feed some of kitty's favorite food to distract for a few minutes.
  • Soft Paws will fit most kittens by the time they reach the age of 16 weeks (4 months). Some kittens can wear them as early as age 12 weeks (3 months) . To test, try a nail cap on first without the adhesive. If it looks too big, don't glue it on. The nail cap should fit snugly, like a glove, but not cover the cuticle. The kitten size generally fits kittens up to about 5 pounds and about 5 months of age.
  • To accommodate smaller kittens, you can trim the base of the nail cap, making it smaller so it will fit your kitten's nail.

What are Soft Paws?

Soft Paws are an excellent alternative to declawing. They are easy to apply at home, and cats and their owners love them. They are completely safe and humane and can be used on cats of all ages. Soft Paws are vinyl nail caps that are glued on to your cat's existing nails. They look like a cat's nail, only hollow. They are easy to apply and cats tolerate them extremely well.

How long do they last, and how often do they need to be reapplied?

Once the nail caps are applied, they remain in place for approximately 4-6 weeks. They will fall off with the natural growth of your cat's nails. We recommend that you check your cat's nails periodically because usually just one or two fall off at a time, and these can easily be reapplied. Each kit contains 40 nail caps so one kit will last approximately 4-6 months per cat.

Are Soft Paws safe? Do they hurt the cat?

Soft Paws are completely safe, painless, and non-toxic for cats. Even if they are swallowed, they will not cause a problem for your cat. They just pass on through the digestive system. Even the dried glue is entirely harmless because it becomes inert, or chemically inactive, as it dries in place.

Can cats still extend and retract their claws while wearing Soft Paws?

Absolutely. Soft Paws are designed so that they won't interfere with the normal extension and retraction of cats' claws.Cats extend and retract their claws by flexing and extending a tendon, much like when you extend your ankle to point your toe. The nail does not retract into a sheath, even though that is how it might appear. Soft Paws® nail caps are thicker and blunter than your cat's nails, so they are more visible than the nails normally are. If a colored nail cap is used, it is even more visible. Cats' nails are thin at the ends, so they are difficult to see normally unless they are extended.

Will Soft Paws interfere with my cat's normal stretching and scratching behavior?

No. Your cat can still stretch and make scratching motions, however no damage will occur to your furniture because the claw is effectively covered and protected.
