Wonder about trimming the nails? I do my guys a lot but the vets did them once and they can be trimmed a lot shorter than I have been cutting them.

Reminds me of the time I got Stormy a red collar with shiny rhinestones.
Oh, it looked so pretty on her grey fur!
But every day when I came home from work, the collar, still fastened, was sitting right on the front step. Cat's way of saying, "I don't even think
so."
Sigh.

I cannot even begin to think about soft paws for my pride. I don't think I
would come out of it alive.  We do not like anything  put on us.

Copper and Thomas like sheets (large) of Styrofoam..I have some on
the floor from packaging and a couple of styrofoam insulation
boards (8 foot +) leaning against a wall in the garage.  A little
messy but that is what vacs and brooms are for.

I have known many people who used SoftPaws - it all depends on the
cat and one's perseverance....no two cats are the same!
The best thing to do is to trim the claws regularly and provide
many scratching surfaces - some cats like vertical and others
prefer horizontal.
Cats usually like to scratch something after waking up and/or
getting off the litter box, that's why it's a good idea to have
those available near those sources.  If they pick on a corner of a
sofa, cover with double-sided sticky tape and place a good scratch
post next to it until the cat gets used to it.  Not all scratch
posts are created equally!  Carpet covered ones send the wrong
message to cats.....vertical or horizontal.  The best ones are
real wood, next best are covered with sisal twine woven material,
and then just plain sisal rope.  In a multiple-cat household, the
last is the least effective because those twines are scratched
apart and have to be recovered (can be done!)  Using catnip on
scratch posts to retrain is a good idea - and pulling a toy up the
scratch post works really well!  Natalie -----Original

Has anyone tried Soft Paws for their cats?  I have read a few
unfavorable reviews on Amazon.com, but even more favorable ones.
My cats are starting to damage the persian rugs and leather
carpet.  My husband is threatening bodily harm if they don't stop
it!
