    I considered Soft Claws on my hairy kids, but opted for double-sided tape instead. I probably should have also had a camera handy when the first swipe of the paw stuck to the double-sided tape. It was kind of amusing to watch as the cat tried to shake off the tape. After a while, there is no need for the tape.

    Yeah, I believe he tried doublesided tape at first, but it's the entire flat he needs to protect (as technically he's not supposed to have pets, but it was a stray kitten that adopted him) so the Soft Claws were the better option for him. The cat isn't bothered by it at all and it doesn't make the claws useless to him - he still manages crazy dashes climbing up the sofa and other furniture!

    Now THAT is an idea I wish I'd heard when I moved into my new house ... you know the outer corner of the bottom stair that the cats LOVE to claw? Maybe I could try the double-sided tape there. You probably need pretty heavy tape, like double-sided duct tape, right?

    I didn't know nor realize how well the tape worked at first and it shows by one of the office/computer chairs I still have which I let them have to lay and sleep on. The Bengal also uses the chair to climb onto some shelving where I have a large 1/4 scale car sitting so he can sleep on it in front of a heat duct.

    Anyway, I simply purchased the double-sided tape sold at the pet store. It is sold in strips and made just for this purpose. The tape also isn't heavy at all. My hairy kids simply didn't like the idea of having their pads or their hair stuck to the tape, so eventually they would quit trying to scratch the furniture.

    The double-sided tape also didn't have a lot of "glue" so it made it easy to remove from leather. I did have to retape a couple of spots after they pulled off the tape, which usually resulted when a good length of it stuck to the cat or when they were more insistant at trying to scratch.

    However, I must admit that I never tried it on the stairs nor did I need too since my two cats have two scratching posts. Their fun on the stairs consists of chasing each other up and down the stairs as well as darting through the spaces between.

    Snapped a couple of quick pics of the hairy kids--the one of Bennie shows why some onboard flashes don't work well with certain lens though I had no choice since it was a one chance, one shot deal. However, I still liked the shot anyway.

    Here's another one of my cat Pete. He was just sitting there waiting to have his picture taken.

    Smile More great cat photos!

    Emmabelle, some great shots of Emma & Lily! I particularly liked the close-up of Emma.
    Karlyrat, soft claws look like the ultimate fashion statement for kitty cat.
    TNB, Bennie is one handsome cat, I liked the shot too, despite the lens shadow. , &
    tfa8rva, that's a great photo of Pete enjoying your sound system.

    Here are a few of Ariella:

    (stuffed the alignment on this photo, mustn't have been sitting square to the desk and obviously didn't have the thirds grid turned on, so didn't notice the misalignment in the viewfinder...)
