My cats are about to get beaten (not really, but damn, they’re pissing us off). In the three months we’ve lived in our house, they have seriously managed to rip up a piece of the carpet on the stairs. They have buttloads of scratching posts in the house - like one in every room - but they refuse to use them the majority of the time. I am against declawing, and I’ve always taken the clawing as part of having a cat (yes, we tried to train them out of it as kittens…didn’t work).
So now we’re looking at SoftClaws/SoftPaws for them. Do your cats have them? Do they work? Do the cats chew at them? Do they even realize that these are not their real claws?
We’re just wondering if it’s even going to be worth it. I’d be happy to hear anyone else’s experiences with them.
