I do not believe in declawing. I never really felt that strongly about it until recently. I was in the break room at my job and a woman was posting a flyer about a cat. I have a three year old little boy who loves cats and wanted one so I looked at the flyer.
The cat was beautiful. He was three years old and black and white. But as I read the flyer I was saddened to find out that the cat was declawed and the owners moved leaving the cat outside.
My heart was broken and I knew I had to have him. He is not like any cat I’ve ever been around. He does have some issues. We call him Boots.
He doesn’t like you touching his feet and if you do he will bite.
He is frightened very easily and hides most of the day. Which I believe is due to him being declawed.
But with all his issues he is still a wonderful cat. And he is a very pampered kitty. My family and I are blessed to have him and I hope he feels the same way. I think it’s so wrong to have your cat declawed.
It hurts them physically and emotionally. You wouldn’t want a portion of your hand or foot cut off. So why do it to your cat.
