Soft Paws - Soft Claws For Cats

All About Cat Claw Covers

A recent innovation in cat care and grooming is cat claw covers. Soft Paws are designed to cover your cats claws (of course!) and provide a sense of security for owners who are worried about cat claw control.

Usually, when it comes to cats claws, people think about cat declawing first. Since this has lost favor among cat lovers, it's great to know there are humane options like cat claw covers!


Soft Paws For Cats

The most popular brand of cat claw covers is called Soft Paws. They are adorable little "slip-on" covers. They come in a rainbow of colors, are easy to apply, and affordable. What could be better?


If you are worried about your woodwork, or children, maybe this is the solution you've been looking for!

Soft Paws were developed by a veterinarian and they've been on the market since 1990.These cat claw covers are completely safe, and non-toxic. They don't hurt a cat at all. Most cats adjust to their new accessory within minutes.

They come in kits which last 4 - 6 months. You'll get 40 cat claw covers (also called nail caps), two tubes of adhesive, applicator tips, and instructions.One kit contains four front paw applications. Each application lasts 4 - 6 weeks so the entire kit lasts 4 - 6 months.

Sizing Your Cat For Cat Claw Covers

Soft Paws come in four sizes:

Kitten: 3 or 4 months of age to 6 months or around 5-6 pounds

Soft Claws Paws for KITTENS 1st Year - Clear Natural - up to 5 lbs




Small: 6 - 8 pounds

Soft Claws Paws for Cats SMALL CLEAR NATURAL 6-8 lbs




Medium: 9 pounds (most popular size. An average size adult housecat) This would probably suit many female adult Maine Coon cats.

Soft Paws - Soft Claws for Cats - Medium Red



Large: 14 pounds and up. A good size for most male Maine Coon cats and some females, too!

Soft Paws - Soft Claws for Cats - Large Red



The application directions include trimming your cats claws, filling the cat claw covers to 1/3 with adhesive, extending the claw and slipping the Soft Paw on. Then just hold it on for a few minutes as it adheres.

Cats are able to retract their claws as usual, as well as stretch, run and play. They won't even know they're there (usually).

Bear in mind that cat claw covers should only be used on indoor cats, as they will interfere with a cats natural defenses outdoors.

All in all, when it comes to cat claw control, Soft Paws cat claw covers seem to be a solid choice. They'll give your cat long-lasting soft claws, and they'll give you peace of mind!
