We are also a Canadian based company, all our prices are in Canadian dollars.
Q: What are Fab Kitty Paws?
A: Fab Kitty Paws are a great alternative to declawing a cat and preventing damage to furniture. They are a harmless vinyl resin cap that is applied over the cats nails with a non-toxic adhesive (Cyanoacrylate adhesive - aka. super glue).
Q: Are Fab Kitty Paws safe for my cat?
A: Fab Kitty Paws are completely safe for cats. They will not effect the extension and retraction of their claws (as long as you don't over fill with glue when applying; follow ourapplication steps)
Q: What age group of cats can I use Fab Kitty Paws on?
A: Fab Kitty Paws are safe for cats from the age of 16 weeks and up.
Q: How do I know what size to get for my cat?
A: There is a sizing chart that will explain the best size for your cat.
Q: Can Fab Kitty Paws be used on front and hind claws
A: Most of the time owners apply Fab Kitty Paws to the front claws in preventing damage to their furnishings from actively scratch with their front claws, you may not need to apply Fab Kitty Paws to your cat's hind claws. However the nail caps can be used on the hind claws if desired, and there are a couple of situations when it might be a good idea such as preventing damage from cats jumping off furniture when their nails dig in. Also, many people have used Fab Kitty Paws on the hind claws of cats that have skin problems and scratch themselves excessively. The nail caps help decrease or prevent self-inflicted damage in these instances. We recommend small size Fab Kitty Paws as the hind nails tend not to curl.
Q: Are Fab Kitty Paws good for Indoor & outdoor cats?
A:Fab Kitty Paws are meant mainly for indoor cats, as they blunt their nails.
Q: How long do Fab Kitty Paws stay on my cats nails?
A: Each application can last up to 4-6 weeks when applied properly, at which time they should fall off with the natural shedding of your cat's nails.
Q: Can I put Fab Kitty Paws on by myself?
A: Absolutely. Most people apply the nail caps themselves. Some enlist the help of a friend or family member. This is a good idea at first if you are not used to handling your cat alone.
If you can trim your cat's claws, you can apply the nail caps.
Sometimes it helps to place your cat in your lap, facing away from you, so he or she can't back up. Some cats don't mind being wrapped in a towel so you can remove one paw at a time to apply the nail caps. If your cat gets aggresive you may need to visit your vet or groomer to have them applied to the Fab Kitty Paws..
Q: How to put Fab Kitty Paws on my cat?

A: Email us with your color combination and we will respond with a color package.
Q: Why don't you sell nail caps for dogs?
