I put silicone nail caps on my cat to help prevent him from (unintentionally) scratching me and my other cat when he gets hyper. Overall I really like them and would recommend anyone whose having kitty claw problems try them out!
I would strongly suggest getting the help of an experienced veterinarian or cat groomer to select the proper size and show you how to place them before trying it at home.
You know your cat better than anybody, if it's something they would hate, don't do it! (Why only one of my cats is featured in this video)
