    I have to try these alternatives. I’m stressing out about my furniture and it’s just my male cat that is destroying my leather sofas. I hope these alternatives help Tom from scratching my sofas. Anyone else have pointers?

    Good video but idk about that mouse trap… I dropped one once while it was set (I was sitting down so it wasnt a far drop) and it clipped onto my shirt. I'd worry that in some freak accident it fly in the air and snap my cats ear or worse. Besides that good tips!

    I used to use those soft claws on my cat, it made him get himself stuck on blankets and carpets. One time he was so badly stuck I had to cut the blanket to set him free while he cried in pain…. Never again!

    I need to get the large soft paws. The medium was way too small for my cat even though he is on the leaner and smaller side. He already " marked" the brand new couch in various places and can't have him completely destroying it. Someone my sister in law knows who trains animals suggested to put aluminum foil in those areas. He thought it was a toy….I want to cry. 😭😭

    My cat keeps scratching his cut and it’s getting really bad. Me and my brother already tried everything. We bought him a cone but he came back without it, we bandaged his cut, and now I trimmed his nails but he keeps scratching. Help.

    My cats scratch with more "gusto" when wearing soft claws. We are at wits end. Hundreds of dollars of damage!

    That's crazy for a vet to say and do. God go buy cat scratch posts for your house never put caps on claws for god sake they need to scratch and grip god you will kill a cat putting anything on its claws. Don't get a cat. If you listen to a vet like that see to the cats needs first not your own or out for money , a cat needs to grip in a fall never put anything on the cats claws ,that's Bull shit pure rubbish.

    Don't use softclaws, just train your cat when he arrives in your home.

    My cat likes WALL POSTS.
    It all started because I got him a WOODEN cat scratch post made by real bark. Worst.Mistake.Ever. It was messy and now he's addicted to ANY WOOD. Don't get them wood posts IMO
