    The fine feline is modeling Soft Claws or Nail Caps, not paint. They’re little plastic caps that you glue on over the nails. That way your own Hunter S. Tomcat wannabe can’t scratch up the house (or your face) but will still be fully weaponized.

    They come in all kinds of fab colors (and several brands). So if you’ve got a dagger footed feline, don’t lose the claws…just cover ’em up and give kitty a makeover!

    And a little PSA of my own – please don’t ever have a cat de-clawed. Many vets won’t do it anymore because it’s so cruel to the animal. The only way to “declaw” a cat is to amputate their toes at the first joint, just the same way to ensure that a person’s fingernails never grow back is to amputate the tips of the fingers. If you wouldn’t want this done to you, then please don’t do it to your cat.

  163. Please stop saying “between Victor and I”. It’s “between Victor and me”. Common mistake. And I correct you with much love.

    Helpful hint – if the pronoun comes in at the beginning of a sentence, use I (subjective). If the pronoun is in the middle or end, use me (objective). Also helpful if in the middle/at the end of a sentence – example – …bought a gift for Karen and I. Take out the “Karen and” – …bought a gift for I – not correct. ….bought a gift for me – correct.

  164. My cat was on my lap when these pics popped up on my screen. I think he immediately thought about my huge nail polish collection and my very real obsession with all things nail polish/nail art because he literally took off running across the house. That’s okay though. The only reason I haven’t painted his claws ’til now is because he’s a boy. But you, Jenny, you’ve now given me permission.🙂

  193. Curiously, HST looks very calm about the whole thing. He’s not pulling one of his Kray-Z-Kat faces (which I love) or posing all angular with legs in every direction. In fact, he looks rather pleased about his blue nails. Perhaps he’s trying to shift his career from roles befitting that Carrot Top guy who used to run around in commercials about how to make public telephone calls in the pre-cellphone days to more serious roles for a method, character actor who digs deep to make an emotional connection with his pedicure? Either way I’m looking forward to seeing both of you on tv on Thursday.

  203. If those are what I think they are, good luck with keeping them on. They may have improved them since we last tried them, but I think our cat Snowball (all white with blue nails) kept them on maybe a week. We would find the little caps all over the house, and he was intent on showing his rage, on all of our furniture, when he got them all off. He wasn’t ever one to scratch anyone, my mom just didn’t like the results of his “making bread” on blankets/pillows/couch cushions, so she thought the caps would be the perfect solution.

    On our next cat, Emma, we went the “inhumane” route and had her front paws declawed when she was fixed. It didn’t seem to bother her because she used her teeth and back claws like mortal weapons. She would always scratch at the cabinets like she was sharpening her non-existent front claws while giving you murder eyes….she pretty much always had murder eyes though, she was a Maine Coon. The top cushions on our couch have little holes everywhere from her leaping on it from the counter and trying to “stick” the landing like she was going for Olympic gold. It scares me to think of what damage she would have caused if she had her front claws.

Give us an update on how well they work! Enquiring minds want to know. Alternate tactic: Do it for the poor, sad, scratch-encrusted children, Jenny.
