Soft Paws® with CLS (Cleat Lock System) nail caps are a simple solution when pet scratching is a problem and is a great way to eliminate the inhumane practice of declawing. They're easy to apply at home and perfect for cats of all ages. When applied to the front claws they reduce the potential for damage due to your cat's natural clawing and sharpening behavior.
Each Soft Paws pack includes:
- 40 nail caps (enough for 4 applications for the cat's front paws)
- 2 tubes of adhesive
- Directions for application
Developed by a veterinarian, Soft Paws® and Soft Claws® (the name is interchangeable, and the product is identical) nail caps are made in the USA using non-toxic vinyl. The nail caps are applied to your cat's claws using a non-toxic, cold-bonding, veterinary-grade adhesive, and are a completely safe and humane solution to cat scratching problems. Soft Paws do not interfere with the normal extension and retraction of claws, and most cats don't even know they are wearing them.
What is a Cleat Lock System?
Each adult feline nail cap is now embedded with a series of self-locking cleat, which offer an improved grip. The new Soft Paws CLS nail caps also feature the Soft Cuff, which fits snugly around your cat's nails. Combined with the soft cuff these new cleats help improve over all adhesion.
Each Soft Paws® kit contains 40 nail caps, 2 tubes of adhesive, applicator tips, and easy-to-follow instructions. One kit contains enough for 4 front paw applications and each application lasts approximately 4 to 6 weeks, which makes each kit lasts approximately 4 to 6 months.
Sizing: if you have any questions on sizing please call us at 866-386-6369 before ordering!
Small: Fits approximately 6 months old or 6-8 pounds. Some kittens at 5 months may need the small size if they are growing fast or are large-breed cats. Small-boned adult cats often wear the small size. If your cat seems smaller than an average full-grown cat, choose small.
Medium: Fits approximately 9-13 pounds. Most adult average size cats wear medium.
Large: Fits approximately 14 pounds and up. Very large-boned and large-breed cats wear large. Maine Coons, for example, are very large cats and generally wear large.
Instructions: How to Apply Soft Paws®
STEP 1: 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.
STEP 2: 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.
STEP 3: Extend nails by gently pressing thumb on top with index finger on bottom of paw -- slide nail caps onto nail.
STEP 4: 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.
Remember: Declawing is a not just a permanent nail trim. It is the amputation of the first bone in each of a cat's toes and can cause lifelong behavioral problems, including urinating outside the litterbox and biting, pain and decreased mobility and quality of life. If you love the cat, love the claws!
