Hello sandflower, I just talked with Pam at "Soft Claws" having found contact info at: http://www.softclaws.com/ 1-800-989-2542 She said: Clip off just the tips of the "Soft Claws". This exposes the glue and causes the bond to break down. Supposedly the product will come off immediately or in a few days. I asked about soaking or using some removal product and was advised not to do this. I also asked if the glue used was "Super Glue" and she said it was similar. Now for what I think. If the glue is indeed similar to "Super Glue" which is a cyanoacrylate adhesive also used to glue on fake fingernails, you should be able to remove it using the same technique used to remove fake nails. http://cosmetic.lifetips.com/faq.asp__Q__SiteID__E__206__A__QuestionID__E__81450__A__type__E__0 1. Removing Fake Nails In order to remove fake nails, you must soak your nails in an acetone based nail polish remover until the fake nails peel off. If you try to remove them other ways, you will ruin your nails. Using fake nails will damage your nails but removing them incorrectly will make the damage much worse. Soaking is the only solution! 2. Removing Fake Nails I always suggest you go to a nail salon and have them soak the artificial nails off. They use acetone or a nail polish remover that has acetone in it. The technician can watch to make sure that you don?t soak too long and help you remove the nails. If you must do it yourself, then I suggest you purchase a polish remover that has acetone and a conditioner. You will need to soak them for a while and then gently peak the product off your nails. I DO NOT recommend that you use acetone on your cat. I only say that a reasonable person might try this since it is used on humans. Possibly the acetone could be applied with a cotton swab instead of soaking the cat's entire foot in acetone. Hope this is helpful, Redhoss
