What is antitsarapki for cats, and how harmful they are
The role of claws in a cat's life
The claws of these pets give their owners a lot of troublesome minutes. Wanting to save themselves from torn wallpaper or furniture upholstery, one decision was always taken - claw shearing. More humane cat lovers purchased or ordered special corners where the cat could not only frolic, but also plunge claws into the soft wood.
Today’s families today solve this issue differently. They acquire antitsarapki. Especially acute problem with claws is where in the same house you need to get along with young children and a cat. In the game, the baby does not understand what makes the animal hurt, and in response can receive a punch and be seriously scratched.
Grooming claws causes significant injuries to the animal and not only in the physical plane. Claws are not only a natural defense mechanism of the animal, but also a way to mark the territory, to maintain balance during the jump and landing on the paws.After this operation, the cat calms down, stops playing - it becomes defenseless and tries to escape from the “potential danger”.
Where to hide claws
In European countries, cats no longer condemn to flour, and apply antitsarapki. With their help, you will protect not only children, but also furniture, wallpapers and the entire interior from the formidable weapon of your pet.
Many are interested in the question - are anti-scratches harmful to cats? Let's just say: as much as false nails of a luxurious woman. Of course not. On numerous photos and videos you can see that they are made of plastic, but soft enough. It is also biologically pure, since the possibility of swallowing them in animals is taken into account. Even in this case, the cat is not in danger, because they do not irritate the esophagus.
It should be noted that the described device is intended not only for adult cats or those that are already on the threshold of old age, but also for small kittens. After all, you can use anti-scratches even from the six-month age of your pet. It makes no sense to use them for younger animals, because they do not yet have such strong claws that can cause harm. Moreover, during the game the claws are constantly and independently grinded.
During the conversation, the question often arises that the cat will try to gnaw them. Such cases are not excluded. You just have to re-paste the missing ones. However, the animal quickly gets used to them. This happens over several days. However, caps worn on claws do not cause any discomfort to the cat.
Anti-scratches are amazing because even in them your pet can go about their business - releasing claws and sharpening them about furniture, but at the same time, he will never leave behind any traces of destruction, and his instincts will be preserved. Also, you will no longer be afraid that an animal can scratch you or a child.These moments can be seen on video and photos.
Based on the fact that the protective caps are glued directly to the cat's claws, then they will fall off together with them, as the scales that they consist of die. Approximately it occurs from one to two times per month and not at the same time. However, in one bag of these anti-scratches it is enough to make a replacement for those who have disappeared.
In protective caps, due to their colorful colors, your cat will look glamorous and irresistible. With their help, you can create a specific manicure or glue colorless - for ascetics.
The art of wearing anti-scratch
In order to put protective caps on claws of your cat, you can watch thematic videos, and you can read the short and accessible instructions:
- Take your pet's foot gently and also press down on the fingertip to allow you to push the claw.
- Using special trimming tweezers, trim the claw a little bit.
Try a protective cap on it to make sure that it fits snugly to the base of the claw. After all, it also happens that the cap is too big. In this case, you will be rescued by scissors and trimming from the side of the hole.
If antitsarapki sit tight, then they can be safely glued to the claws. To do this, take a tube of glue and put an applicator on the “ear”, then gently squeeze the contents into the protective cap, about 1/3 of the total internal volume.
After the glue liquid spreads evenly over the anti-scratch, it is necessary to put it on the cat's claw and hold it with a force of 10 seconds.
When work is finished, hold your pet near you for about five minutes to allow the glue to dry properly.
In the photo and video you saw what the protective caps are. You also know how much they cost. It's time to talk about how to remove the anti-scratch.
In fact, they do not need to shoot. With them, the cat walks for two months. After the specified time, the caps disappear independently, since the claws of the animal are updated during this period. Some of them can still hold, so you have to remove them yourself, a little clipping. After removing the caps, the nails will not be all right, so it’s worth cutting them only 1 or 2 mm. You will not be shown this in the video, but the process is not complex. So do not be afraid.
