While shopping for ferret food earlier this week I found some Kitty Caps at PetSmart. I had seen these online before and wanted to buy them, so when I stumbled across them in the store I decided to take a chance. Elvis and Calley spend the majority of their time out side, so they need their claws, but Wilson spends most of his time inside and has a tendency for, umm, violent affection.
|It looks like he's missing one but it's there, just retracted. The caps don't impede him moving his claws at all.|
So, Wilson got his nail treatment yesterday. I have to say, so far I am impressed with this product. The soft vinyl caps slide over the nail and stay in place with super glue. Wilson wasn't thrilled about the process but he let me do it, and now that they're on he really doesn't seem to notice them. They should last until his nails shed naturally and the $15 kit has enough caps to do his front paws 4 times, so it should last a while. I'll let you know how they are working out after a week or so, but so far so good!
Poor Wilson is going to go rolling over backwards the first time he tries to dig his claws into the carpet; I'll try to keep the other two from laughing too hard at him :)
Linking up to Feline Friday, go show the kitties some love!
