sphynxy, i have yet to use these on my 4 month old kittens, but i plan on putting them on the boy, as he likes to scratch stuff.
however, my Mom used these for about year on both of her cats. Male tabbys about 11 and 8 years old at the time. They worked VERY well on one of the cats, and not as well on the other. The were only put on the cats front paws.
One cat they worked well on, i think they stayed on for a little over a month before we started seeing little pink things (yes...my mom gave a 17lbs male cat pink nails!) laying around on the floor, he didnt seem to notice the claw caps at all. The other cat, he HATED the things, and would chew on them and pull on them REALY hard! it was actually sort of painful watching him try to yank them off
, i could have sworn he was going to rip a claw clean out of his paw. For him, they only stayed on for about 2 weeks before he would start getting them pulled off. so my Mom decided it wasnt worth the effort to keep putting them on.
I think how good they are will depend of if your cat is bothered by them, if Harrie dosnt like them, she will try to yank them off constantly. If she isnt bothered by them, they will probably last you a month or more at a time. i would say its worth a try!
