Cats make ideal pets, except that they hate the entire human race. At least we assume that's why they periodically sink their claws deep into our arms, legs and leather furniture.
So if your holiday list includes cat-owners -- you can identify them by the scars -- these nail caps will make the perfect gift. These are little plastic deals that come in a variety of unnatural colors; you simply fill them with the supplied adhesive, slip them over your cat's claws, and there you are! Bleeding profusely! Because we seriously doubt that you're going to get these things on a regulation cat without the help of a tranquilizer gun.
