Alternative Glue for Soft Paws?
January 15, 2013 5:46 PM Subscribe
I have used Soft Paws to prevent my two cats from scratching our furniture in the past, and they worked really well. However, either they redesigned their glue dispenser, or I've developed serious glue-handling issues, because I went through three bottles of glue spilling all over the place before I gave up. Is it safe to use Krazy Glue, or some similar product instead of the glue they provide?

I've googled this issue and have received mixed messages, so I'm wondering if anyone has had good or bad results with alternate glues. I just bought a new chair, and normally the cats tolerate the Soft Paws really well, so I would like to keep using them, but I can't afford to buy new packages over and over (at about $20 per package) again just to get the glue.
Just for informational purposes, when I cut just the very tip of the glue off to put the needle/dispenser part on, the glue still spilled out everywhere, which I know didn't happen in the past. I couldn't get a tight fit, no matter what I did, so I'm assuming they must have changed the design for the worse.
