neither the cat nor baby understands whats going on....
I think giving the soft paws a try are a great idea... you dont have much to loose. If the cat wont tolerate them, then you have no choice but to declaw, or find him a new home, and I couldnt imagine that. Kitty is a family member too...
and I know if I saw the red, I would be terrified too
Killer Kitty on the loose!
Pain is a wonderful way to lose touch with reality. That little bastard was running around once and tried to jump over my head while I was sitting on the couch. He missed and decided to keep going. I ended up with three parallel scratches on my forehead across my eye down to my cheek. He is so lucky that he can fit behind heavy furniture. I had the pirate look going on for days.
I believe the cat knows what's going on. It's just asserting itself over a potentially threat. He knows how to scratch playful and how to scratch mean. So do I. I'll probably order the softpaws this weekend and maybe post a video of him "getting used to them".
