Do you cover all four paws? Also on the fronts do you just cover all five or just 4? I got some I ordered today and slipped one on to make sure they fit just wondering how you all do yours.

I haven't actually done mine... yet! (gotta get Nebbie used to me even touching her paws, let alone spending 5 whole minutes putting stuff on 'em!)

I will only do the main 4 claws on her front feet. However, my reason is that she scratches the carpet after she poops (also on the carpet!) to try to bury it. Doesn't use her claws for scratching furniture or people, and therefore the little 5th claw really isn't an issue. Back feet don't do much damage either

I suppose the choice of how many depends on the reason for getting caps.

When we used them we only used them on the front paws on all 5 claws. They work okay but we found that they didn't stay on as long as we would have liked and the cat didn't like them so we stopped using them. We made sure they had a good cat stand to scratch on and make sure we stop them if they try to scratch on the couch. So far it has been pretty good, they usually go for the cat stand and only occasionally hit the couch.

The next time you are with her at the vet you should ask him to show you how to trim her claws. Lots of people trim their kittie's claws. Mow uses his paws on me alot. He is always pawing at my hands and face for attention and scratching in play. Trimming really helps to prevent damage.

I did forget to add that we do trim our cats claws frequently, we use a normal pair of fingernail clippers (for people) and it is very quick. We clip the front and back claws otherwise they can get razor sharp.

I could just see my cats picking at their feet for hours trying to get them off. (much like iwould pick at false nails at this point, lol).

I saw them at the pet store though, $20!! Holy crap! lol.
