|HEHEHEHE!!! I got Mommy to stop pestering us with those things!! We USED to wear them religously. I HATED them!! I would chew off the tip of every single one of them over night while Mommy and Daddy were sleeping. They'd get up and I would have at least 3-4 missing and every day mommy had to replace them on me. My nails DO shed A LOT and QUICKLY so part of it wasn't my fault.
Mommy's last straw came when she went away on vacation and came home to find a Soft Paw had been on sister so long that it had started growing into her paw pad. It's good it was sister and not me, because sister is tolorant and sweet and never hisses or swats. She spent 2 hrs in the bathroom with mommy as mommy tried to get the Soft paw off without hurting her. Eventually it came off and mommy held both of us, looked into our eyes and promised she would NEVER put those "nasty things" onto our feet again. She and Daddy started clipping our nails every week and we don't claw the funiture at all.
We do realize that if you are thinking about soft paws or declawing soft paws are the way to go!!! Declawing was never an option in our home (thankfully!!!!), but Mommy also realizes that if she does not do her job and keep our nails trimmed then it's not our fault if we work over her furniture because we're just doing what comes natual to us to help us get rid of our nail shell. Good luck with them if your mommy puts them on (and remember, you can chew the tip off and they'll fall off real quick!!!)
