I don't know why people would want to do this,maybe they have their reasons.I just don't understand it.

Sorry if you've done it,don't mean to offend,but I find the practice really disgusting.

If they can't take care of a kitty or puppy why are they trying to? They CAN'T have their reasons. Those little innocent animals can't even say no to that unbearable pain.
I don't call those people as "humans"
I'm sorry for being rude but like they say "If you can't do good then do no harm"

our cats are not declawed and they also do not go outside. there are dogs in the neighborhood and a busy road nearby.

that is horrible. why would people do that. It's totally taking away their defense

big time....i hate it. don't own a cat if you are going to take away their natural defense...if they get outside, they are screwed. so sad.

When we first got a cat...years ago in the 80's I remember my parents having the cat declawed and it was just what people did with their indoor cats so they wouldn't scratch the furniture.

Now i have two cats of my own and neither of them are declawed although when they scratched my leather sofas I almost pulled their claws out myself!

You know what I don't understand? Who the hell got the light buld on top of their head one day and said, "Hey! Lets start cutting off the tails and chopping the ears in half of a few breed of dogs and see if they look cool!"


Hate declawing, all it took is to
see a cats bloody paws with litter
stuck to the cats paws at a friends house. Yuk! Ugh! Terrible!
To introduce a new cat/kitten you need to give the new cat a space of
its own until the other cat/s begin
being so curious they can't resist
coming closer. A dog sized cage with litter box.I always bathe the new cat asap so the other cats don't feel threatened by the new cats scent. For the first week I don't let the new cat alone with the others. There will be a lot of
hissing, the most dominant cat will
feel the most threatened esp if the
new cat is not spayed of neutered
because the pecking order in the
household has changed. Feel free
to ask questions at my blog anytime!

When we got our first cat (it had been treed and never claimed), we took it to the vet for a checkup and see if it had a tag inside. We never had any animals before this one. They said it took 3 people to clip his claws and that he really didn't like it. They recommended declawing. We had it done. And now that I know what it is, I feel terrible. It's been like 10 years since then. I won't do it again. We did it on the recommendation of the vets who actually thought we might end up seriously hurting him if we did it ourselves, or we could take him into the vet everytime he needed a clipping, but thats unrealistic. We didn't know any better, and while that's not an "excuse", it was reality.
