Our vet suggested them, but I’d like to see any cat stay still long enough to get them on. lol

I have tried them a couple of times, and my cat just chews them off within a couple of days. They don’t work for her.

The cat we’re considering adopting has them. I don’t like the idea of declawing a cat.

@MissComicBook: The only thing that has worked for us is regular trimming, a spray bottle full of water (to spritz her when we catch her clawing things she shouldn’t) and getting her a nice, tall scratching post. 

We also cover the nice furniture. We got a leather chair recently and while she wasn’t actively scratching it, she was making small scratches when she would jump up on it. It’s covered now.

The plastic tips might work for your cat. Mine just doesn’t tolerate it.

The rubber claw covers work if the cat tolerates you applying them.  They stay on for a while…..  I have a friend who runs a Bengal cat rescue and she has great luck with them.  My cat has her claws and I just take my chances……she really doesn’t claw the furniture and she’s a pretty good girl.  As an aside, I don’t believe in declawing either, it’s inhumane and it’s mutilation in my opinion.
