Product Description
Cats need your help! While the domestic cat has done very well for itself, many cat species are threatened or endangered due to poaching and habitat destruction. It is my goal to raise awareness of cats by providing these models so people think more about the uniqueness of these magnificent animals and are hopefully inspired to help them. Be sure to check out my other cat claw models!

For these wearable cat claws, you need only to provide an attachment strap (we recommend 1/2" (12.5 mm) hook-and-loop style cable management strips, but a ribbon would also work just fine). Size will come down to user preference, but if your index finger is less than 40 mm (about 1.56") from the tip to the middle knuckle, then you should consider the smaller size.

----------------------------------------------------------------------
Cats are obligate carnivores (also known as hypercarnivores) meaning that meat makes up the vast majority of their food intake. As that meat comes from animals which generally prefer not to be eaten, cats have had to evolve into very efficient hunting machines. Every feature of their bodies, from lithe, muscular limbs to sensitive whiskers on the face, is fine-tuned for catching prey.

One of a cat's most important adaptations is its protractile claws. That is, the claws are retracted in their resting state, and the cat can extend them at will. This keeps the claws protected when not in use, so they can be maintained at their maximum sharpness. Cat claws are made of keratin (the same material as human fingernails), and are used in grooming, territorial marking, climbing, and (of course) hunting.

In cats, the distal phalanges (tips of the fingers) are reversed compared to ours: they bend backwards and the nail (claw) grows from the front, towards the palm. When the wearer of these claws flexes their fingers forward, the claw moves out in the same way as a feline joint.
