I have an exotic cat that can not be declawed. When she jumped up on me or came up on the bed to sleep with me, I literarly looked like I went rhrough a briar field. I have more battle scars from my little girl than Carter has liver pills! I could not wait for this little device to arrive. I hunted her down and put the grinder to work. It was terrefic. Iwas safe for about 3 weeks and had to repeat. No biggy. I reccommend this to any one who has a little tiger of their own.
