When trimming your cat's nails in preparation for Fab Kitty Paws, you just want to cut off the tip of the nails (indicated by the GREEN line in the picture). You don't want to cut it any shorter because you want the most amount of surface for the nail caps to adhere to.
**in this picture the RED line indicates Where the quick starts on the cat claw
The red line on the picture indicates roughly where you should cut (your glue tube will not have a red line)
It's always recommended that you put on one of the Fab Kitty Paws WITHOUT glue to make sure they fit properly
Trim all claws that are going to get nail caps
Applying the Nail Caps
Read all instructions before applying the nail caps
First step is to extend your cat's nail with cap for trimming. To do so grasp you pet's paw between your thumb and index finger. Applying gentle pressure to the top of the paw to spread the cat's paw, extending the nail making it easier to cut the nail cap
Removing Nail Caps - at Nine Weeks
Read all instructions before removing the nail caps
Firmly slide on the applicator tip
When applying the caps to your cat's claws slide the cap on and hold for aprox. 10 seconds
Fill the caps 3/4 full; make sure not to overfill, as excess glue can irritate your cats skin (if overfilled, before placing on nail, squeeze the cap slightly and dab excess with tissue or cotton swab)
** If your cat is patient then you can fill a couple caps at a time (2-3 caps) if your cat is less then co-operative then fill one cap at a time and apply one at a time.

Store the adhesive tube in an upright position, leave the applicator tip on, set the cap on the applicator tip as shown in picture
** 1 tube of adhesive contains enough to apply approximatly 4 sets of front claw caps (approx.40 caps)
Remove adhesive tube from packaging
Once cut you should be able to remove the rest of the nail cap with a slight twist.
** You're now ready to apply your next set
Once all the nail caps have been applied, keep an eye on your cat for an additional 5 minutes to make sure your cat does not pick at them, giving the adhesive time to dry.
Fab Kitty Paws should last for an average of 5-7 weeks, they will fall off as your cat sheds their claws naturally.
** If they're still on after 9 weeks it is recommended to remove them. Please follow the steps below for removing them.
Take notice the nail cap does not come in contact with the skin. The spacing between the cap and skin will differ from cat to cat.
** If you notice an excess amount of glue coming out from around the cap use a tissue or cotton swab to dab up excess
Cut at the half way point, from the tip of the nail cap to the base of the nail cap (as shown in the picture)
Remove lid from adhesive tube.
