Sadie the cat wearing her new Soft Paws.

“Being a forced cat lover, I also had to deal with the destruction of furniture from clawing.  After having my cat, Sadie, for about 5 years I made the decision to have her declawed.  I did some research on the procedure used for declawing a cat, watched the youtube procedure, and said out loud to myself, “no way am I putting my cat through this procedure!” By this time my cat was more important to me than the furniture. Furniture could be replaced, my beloved cat could not.  A friend of mine told me about the applying of these “soft paws” onto the existing front claws of the cat and when they scratch anything, including their master and other people, it is very “soft”.  I kind of laughed at this idea at first and likened to one of those “As Seen On TV” gimmicks!  When I moved back to the LaSalle-Peru area I decided to try them on my cat.  I made an appointment with Dr. Hasty at the “Progress Blvd Veterinarian Clinic” and she applied them.  The cat of course was a bit hesitant but, the application of the softpaws only takes a matter of minutes.  Me, my mom, and the cat are all happy and delighted that she can do all the scratching she wants to and nothing gets damaged!  Well, maybe the cat has a different opinion of this? Being a cat, I’m sure her choice would be to claw, claw, claw, and move on to more stuff to damage!!”
