I've been considering getting "soft paws" for my cats. They don't scratch stuff too much, but there are a few things they have wrecked and I just don't want to loose anymore furniture. Declawing is definitly not an option! I MIGHT have considered it if they were still very young, but at 4 years old I think it would be way too traumatic for them.
My husband thinks it's kinda stupid to get these "soft paws" 'cuz he says we should just train them to not scratch. I really don't know how we can, we've tried everything already. They have lots of scratching posts, we've tried spraying with a water bottle, bitter scent sprays, double sided tape, nothing works.
China does it to our leather couch, but he doesn't make holes in it, he just does a light scuff and he only does it when we see him. He gives a really stupid glare look and then starts scratching until we go up to him. SO ANNOYING! Hyrum loves to scratch the corner of the matress....it was new, but now it looks like we picked it up at a thrift store or something, lol.
Anyway, enough babbling already, lol. Any opinions?
And if I do get them, what color do you think I should get? They're both males, so not pink, lol. I'm only going to buy one package for both cats, just to test them out first. I don't want to waste money on these things if they don't work or they just bite them off.
Here's the colors they offer:
