I have 2 cats and would NEVER declaw them. Never even entered my mind. Yes, my leather couch has scars, but a little touch up covers it and on we go.
Here’s the story: A cat showed up on my porch about 2 months ago. So sweet and beautiful. I started feeding it and noticed when it made gingerbread on me there were no claws.
I brought the cat in to find that it was declawed front and back. Very unusual!? It made me sick and my vet and entire staff too.
The cat is inside now permanently. How it survived outdoors, I’ll never know. Here’s the kicker, it’s a young Manx. My vet agrees. I’ve done my homework and it matches everything a Manx should be.
I have it on the found cat websites, but no hits. I’m not sure I want the owner to come forward. They are the ones who declawed this sweet cat. So, I look at it as mine, now I have 3 cats. The
Manx plays with one of my young cats and they terrorize the house. They have a ball and I truly enjoy watching. So now I own a total declawed cat, which I hate. The bottom line is, it has a wonderful loving home and here it shall stay inside, forever.
Question: Would you declaw your dog? Didn’t think so.
Hi Kathy…. Great story. You are a kind soul and a friend of cats.
If you have a picture of your Manx, please email me – thanks.
