Yet another installment in the drudgery that is everyday shopping. The camera-phone makes it a bit more fun - though I get looks whenever I take pics of products. Like I care what people think.
Oh my. I have not had a Shopping segment in 2021. Dear me!
This actually is 710's find. I cannot - and will not - take credit.
Oh yes, Purrdy Paws Soft Cat Nail Caps - rainbow edition. I didn't feel the need to hyperlink.
We don't really order from Chewy, but we use it to compare prices - mostly on cat and dog fud. So, 710 gets emails from them with products we have never bought - and never will buy...........like cat nail caps - rainbow or not.
Allegedly, these protect your furniture and guests (I love that part!) from scratching, the humane way. Oh and for the low low prices of $14.99 (before your $2 discount!), you get 40 caps and two - count 'em - TWO tubes of glue.
Honestly, I should look for a YouTube video of how one might get one of these on a cat, let alone on all of the claw. I'm assuming only front ones, but who the hell knows. And you just know such a YouTube video exists.
Now, poor Sophie doesn't have front claws. For those newer to this blog here - Sophie was born with some deformed pads and claws. The vet suggested and thought it best to declaw her. So we did. Even with that though, she's not much of a phantom clawer. She doesn't really try to sharpen the claws that no longer exist.
Even if she did have them, and did claw, I could not imagine ever thinking about putting these on - let alone buying them.
I don't find gluing things to cats nails to be 'humane'. But no doubt some crazy cat lady buys these. I mean, they wouldn't make / sell / market these if there weren't some consumers stupid enough to purchase.
