Is it okay to declaw your cat if you have diabetes? — 5 Comments

  1. If you do a little research, this pops up.

    The New York State Veterinary Medical Society (NYSVMS) said it supports declawing as an alternative to euthanasia for cat owners with impaired immune systems or diabetes.

  2. Yeah, let us know how that bite wound heals. Once the claws are gone the cat will turn to biting if the cat feels threatened.

  3. All of this considered I’d still say no, it’s not okay to declaw the cat. I’ve had 18 cats over 25 years and rarely have I been scratched. In fact I can’t remember the last time but it’s been at least 5 years. You can injure yourself in all sorts of ways, having a cat in the grand scheme of things isn’t any more likely to sustain one. If you’re clumsy, that’s on you; if you can’t get along with your cat, that’s on you too. If you’re that paranoid of injury and infection and for some reason you can’t take antibiotics, don’t get a cat, in fact move into a nursing home or something and have people do everything for you so you don’t even have to wash dishes or pick up a fork to feed yourself; go live in a bubble… this is otherwise an excuse to horribly mangle and cripple a defenseless animal. Sorry but I’ve never heard of this before so I wonder about it’s authenticity.
