They are almost like faux nails for cats. You clip the cats claws and then put some glue inside the nail cover and put it over the nail. They fall off as the cats nails grow in around 4 weeks. Has anyone used them? My cats won't stop scratching the couch to death and we have tried a lot of things so hopefully these work and they don't bother the cats. It was $18 a cat for a 6 month supply. Heres a pic of a cat with the softpaws on. Here are the victims: Charlie and Snowball Nibbler They should be coming this week, i'll update with how the application goes.
