Before applying nail caps, test for proper size
Try a cap on first without adhesive. If it’s too big or has any wiggle, don’t glue it on. The nail cap should fit snugly, like a glove.
These will fit most kittens by the time they reach the age of 16 weeks (4 months). Some kittens can wear them as early as age 12 weeks (3 months).
Small – Approximately 6 months old — Approximately 6-8 pounds
Some kittens at 5 months may need the small size if they are growing fast or are large-breed cats. Small-boned adult cats often wear the small size. If your cat seems smaller than an average full-grown cat, choose small.
Medium – Approximately 9-13 pounds
Most adult average size cats wear medium.
Large – Approximately 14 pounds and up
Very large-boned and large-breed cats wear large
