Softpaws come in a lot of exciting colors and color combinations.

What are Soft Paws?

Soft Paws are nail caps that slide on over your cat's claws to help protect against problem scratching. The caps blunt the claws so no damage occurs when your cat scratches, allowing your cat to do what comes naturally—scratching—without damaging your belongings.

This humane alternative to declawing allows your cat to scratch freely, while you get to keep your furniture—and your sanity—intact.

The caps come in a variety of fun colors as well as clear for the more discreet feline.

Soft Paws Key Points:
  • They are safe and non-toxic.
  • Most cats don't even know they are wearing them.
  • They really work!
