Bruce and his claws are driving us nuts. He scratches us constantly, no intentionally trying to hurt. And of course has taken up scratching the furniture. Scratching post never did work no matter what I tried, so I sold the darn thing. Clipping his nails........Well, maybe it's because he was older when he came to live with us last fall, but clipping is out. He's having no part of it....and teeth and nails bring that fact home. I'd already nixed the declawing over the risk of him not using the litter box later issue. (not a risk I really want to take) And the whole toe amputee thing. But Nichole's friend says her Mom got these claw covers from the vet. You glue them over each nail. Nail dies and falls off. Supposed to be pain free with no damage to the toes. Not real expensive either. So? Any of our cat experts hear of such a thing? Any opinions?
