I was looking around on eBay for a few things and I came across the item below: 20x Pet Dog Cat Anti-scratch Nail Paw Claw Cap Cover S | eBay I don't understand why anyone would put these on their cat or dog! I trim Henry's little claws as when they get too long he tends to get caught on things, but I would never dream of putting these things on him! I have a leather couch and it has a few scratches on it from him running across it or playing with toys on it, but I accept that this will happen. He hasn't scratched it deliberately, although every now and again he does have a go at my living room rug! Am I alone in thinking that these are a little cruel? I know that everyone has their own opinion as to taking care of their animals, but this isn't something I would ever consider putting on Henry.
