Yes they can still do everything normal.....

As far as a calming agent. I have some stuff from petco called Richards Organics. And it works great! Only have to squirt a little bit in their mouth and then bam!!! 20 minutes later you have a drunk kitty haha I've only used it a couple times. http://www.petco.com/product/7743/Ri...-Pet-Calm.aspx

Cats claws are naturaly retracted. That is the resting state.

I tried soft paws for a while. They were okay, and I'd certainly use them if I really needed to, and I'd definitely recommend them over declawing any day, but my overall impression was not that great. They were kind of a hassle to put on. The cats protested more than they do when having nails clipped. Because they're a thin piece of plastic that fits over the nail, there's an edge to them (not on the tip side but the other end) and I found that it started to snag on things like blankets/fabric, especially after they nail started to grow out a little bit. For us, it just works better to clip nails on a regular basis (usually a few at a time every few days or so.) I find that by clipping only a few nails more often, the cats tolerate it much better and the nails always stay short and dull.

I just realized that if I do mange to put the soft claws on they will not be able to climb up the cat tree anymore. I may have to wait until I solve that problem because there is always at least one on the top and depending on who goes 1st there maybe two on top.
