My cat Picasso has allways been a bit... wild. And at times he would scratch me pretty bad, but I allways thought he would grow out of it. But he is allmost a year and a half now, and he STILL does this. The scratching was no problem when he was a kitten, but now he's grown up to be rather strong and the cuts are getting deeper and bigger .
My parents love to roughplay with him, they dont mind. But it hurts like hell when he scratches me.
I would like to teach him to stop drawing his claws while he plays.
I dont want to de-claw him, because that is just evil.
And I do try and trim his nails often, but he just cant tolerate me playing around with his feet for long, and I dont want to hurry while cutting, incase I cut too deep.
I was thinking, if I cant get him to stop scratching, I could try and get covers for his claws? Like these: http://www.softpaws.com/
