Soft Claws, a humane alternative to declawing, are vinyl caps that are glued over the front and sometimes back claws of cats and kittens to prevent them from scratching people, other animals and furniture. Although they are designed to fall off with the natural growth of the cat's claws in approximately 4 to 6 weeks, Soft Claws may need to be manually removed in the event that the cat shows signs of discomfort, or his nails grow too long before the cap sheds on its own. Luckily, this can be done with no more difficulty than ordinary claw trimming.

If your cat is prone to damaging your furniture – or you – then you may need to cap her nails instead of just trimming them. Capping doesn’t end the need to trim your cat’s nails entirely, but it reduces how many times you need to do so. Capped nails can last six to eight weeks and fall off naturally as your cat’s nails grows. This means you may only need to trim your cat’s nails every six weeks rather than every two to three weeks without caps. Another plus is that the caps won’t prevent your cat from , which can be a big source of stress relief for kitty.

Developed by a veterinarian, Soft Paws are nail caps that look like a cat's nail, but are hollow inside. The nail caps easily fit over the cat's nail and are secured with a safe, non-toxic adhesive. Soft Paws effectively blunt the claws so that when a cat scratches , no damage occurs. The nail caps stay on for about four to six weeks and fall off with the natural growth of the cat's nails. They are generally very well tolerated by most cats, with most cats not even noticing they are wearing them. Some cats will groom them a bit excessively at first, resulting in them coming off sooner, but any removed nail caps can be easily replaced. Soft Paws should not be used on cats that go outside, since nail caps will blunt the claws and also impede a cat's defenses. .Nail caps are plastic nail covers that you affix to your cat’s nails like slipping a glove onto a finger. Originally invented by veterinarian Christianne Schelling of Three Rivers, CA, they obviate the need for declawing your cat. Most importantly, they allow your cat to continue to engage in instinctual scratching and stretching behaviors without damage.
