Putting Rubber Tips on My Two Cat\'s Skiibowski And Milky Was No Picnic

Oh my word, I bought these rubber tips for my two cat's Skiibowski and Milky to see if it would help them stop scratching my furniture and all I can say is "wow." I got super glue all over, my fingers were sticking together and between the both of them trying to bite and scratch, I feel like I just tortured them.

I feel bad but if this works, I will be able to give them maybe more roam why I work all day and save my furniture. Hopefully this will help but the test will tell. Milky is the main one that scratches my leather chairs. She does not know how to not claw and let go when she is running across the couch and she is the one that will lay across my new leather high back chairs I bought for my dining room to use as a scratching post and holes are all over the seats.

No! She won't scratch the old bistro leather set, she just sits on the table in that room to look out the window. Well, three weeks later and rubber tips are all over my floor. Hmmm.... that plan did not work what-so-ever!

They bit the tips off and the box said they would last 3 months, "yeah right". I should write the people who made those rubber tips and ask them how did they come up with 3 months of staying on the cats. I love my cat's Milky and Skiibowski and they don't understand why I am trying to keep my furniture good but yet want to give them their freedom and fun.

I am going to keep gluing the tips on until I get that cat tree and aquarium I never bought. Soon I will because I know this will keep them occupied and keep their attention on something else hopefully. Part of me wishes I was allowed to get them declawed since they are indoor cats anyway, but I'm not allowed because of the agreement I signed when I adopted both of them.

I hope everyone reading this article that have cat's can understand where I am coming from. I really want whats best for my pets but also would like to keep my things nice. Like I said in my past articles, I'm sure it will get better I never really had time to observe my pets in the past because of my lifestyle.

Katie, I always wondered about those rubber tips on the claws? Now I just found out they don't work worth a darn! I adopted 2 cats that were already declawed! It's wonderful for our furniture and carpet. I personally wouldn't declaw them but since someone else had it done before we adopted our cats, it works.
