I thought about declawing my cats and struggled with the decision. I had a scratching post for them and they seemed to always use my doorways in the house. They are house cats and NEVER go outside.
After giving it thought and many painful hours of only imagining what it must feel like to them, I decided against it. I wouldn't want it done to me. I did not know how it was done or what the surgery was like. All I could imagine was the pain and suffering of my beautiful friends.
I just now watched the video of how it is done and I am shocked!!!! No, never, no way, nadda, don't even think about it, and many other ways of saying NO DON'T DO IT!!!!
Thank you so much for enlightening me on the procedure and the information concerning this.
I am just glad that I didn't get it done and then see the video. UGH! My heart hurts for all those less fortunate cats.
Hi... You touch on one of the big problems of declawing cats - a lack of understanding of what it entails.
It goes further than that. People who declaw show a deep rooted and shocking lack of empathy with their cat companion; an animal that these people say they love!
Thanks for popping by and sharing. There are lots of articles about declawing on this page looking at different aspects.
