Why Does My Cat Lose Claws?

Answer

Cats do not lose their claws par se, but they shed the outer layer of their claws. This is normal in cats as the claws grow back. The cat might try to remove the outer sheath by itself by scratching or biting its nails. Trimming your cat's nails and trying to pick out the claw sheds when you notice this will be helpful.
