Soft vinyl claw caps was an original idea created by an american veterinarian way back in the 1970s, since then millions have been sold worldwide. They are intended for “indoor cats” only and should not be placed on the claws of cats that go outside; they need their sharp claws to defend themselves against their natural enemies and to escape; climbing wall and trees etc.
It is natural for cats and kittens to sharpen their claws on wood floors, furniture, doors, carpets and fabric. The idea behind the use of claw caps is to blunt the claws to prevent claw damage to all of the above, including skin, yours and theirs!
If the cat and kitten should swallow a claw cap it goes through the digestive tract without causing discomfort or pain.
The adhesive used to fix the claw cap to the claws is harmless and non toxic.
The claw caps are used by vets and groomers regularly.

We only use minimal packaging, so do not expect the caps to arrive in a fancy tin, plastic container or overpackaging. We care about the environment so we make no apologies for this stance.
By the way Cats have razor sharp claws and not nails – dogs have nails!
