    Any opinions or experience? Saw them on "My cat from hell" on AP this weekend and wondered if they would ease my hubby's anxiety about "kitty nails" and consequences since its been 18yrs since we had a new kitten.

    I have used them, but find them too much maintenance for me. LOL.

    We were going to get them but my bf found that clipping the nails was really simple and our kitty hasn't had much of a scratching problem at all. :)

    a girl friend of mine used them on her cat for a long time and she said they were great!

    Trimming claws is easy, I´d stick to that. Mind you, we tend to forget the SVs claws, though not the BGs!

    Don't you have to clip the claws anyway to put the caps on them? It just stops them feeling sharp... but the claws still grow and need cutting, right?

    Even if you started them out as kittens?

    Yes, even ones started out with regular nail trimming from 2 weeks of age!
