If its a little cat,I rub the belly on the sting,I have noticed that the bigger cats spines are'nt as sharp as the ones under a couple pounds tho.

Nate, the best preventitive measure is to catch bigger cats. LOL You fish for little ones, you generally catch little ones. You fish for big ones, you generally go home without catching any. That's life.

My thinking is if Shane has caught a bunch of fish and never been finned then someone else must be taking them off the hook for him. Just joking here. I haven't found anything that really makes getting finned feel any better. I'll try rubbing the cats belly and if that doesn't work then I'll rub mine.
