To apply them you first need to clip their nails short. Then you apply glue to the inside the cap, then gently push their nail out, and slip the cap on. Hold their nail out for a second for the glue to set and repeat on each nail. I chose to use hot pink so that as the caps come off I know which ones to replace. They work really well and are a great alternative to having your furniture destroyed or having your cat declawed.

They can still put their claws out and scratch at their post. Their nails will still shed too. It doesn't seem to affect anything other than their ability to destroy the furniture. :) They are highly recommended by our vet as an alternative to declawing a cat.
Does this not affect how your cat cleans himself? or do they react well or badly to having them?
I can't help but find this bad considering it's natural for them to scratch.
I may have to try this with my cat, Snickers. Lately he has been sharpening his claws on the wooden legs of the kitchen chairs. I hope the nail caps come in bright green or blue, though. I can't see putting pink on my big bruiser - LOL!
I am surprised that your cat let you put them on! My cats would never hear of that and they hate having their claws trimmed. That looks really cute though :)
