CLAWED CATS AND NICE FURNITURE TOO
Some people like to live in a carefree home, they don’t worry about their furniture, they love to have cats in their homes.
Some people like to live in a well ordered house with expensive furniture and possessions, they love to have cats in their homes too, but as another possession, not as a living feeling member of the family with his own needs and his right to live happily.
Some people like to live in a clean, tidy house with nice furniture and they also love to have cats in their homes.
There is a very simple way to have both nice furniture and happy cats.
The way to a happy stress free home for the family and for the cats too is to provide the cats with their own furniture. It’s very simple to place a few scratching posts and pads around the house and it’s so very easy to teach a kitten or a cat to use them.
Training cats to use their own furniture only takes a bit of time, kindness and patience. Surely anyone who loves cats thinks that is worthwhile!
It is totally unecessary and cruel to go to the extremes of having a cat declawed, even for the sake of very expensive furniture.
It is wrong to premeditatedly plan to bring a kitten home and to have his toe ends amputated instead of providing him with the scratching post he needs for exercise to stay healthy and happy.
Declawing is supposed to be a last resort for very serious scratching problems. It’s not for adapting healthy cats into disabled cats on behalf of lazy selfish people who want a cat in their home, but want an adapted cat to sit around prettily and bored.
Those people need to realise that cats come with claws because they need them.
When declawing is banned in the USA and Canada, and it surely will be soon because there is no hiding the truth of the cruelty of it now, then only the people who truly love cats, claws and all, will have the pleasure of having them in their homes.
