There is a time and place for declawing — 1 Comment

  1. Sheila, you should have researched what declawing is before you decided to go with it. The truth is that declawed cats often become biters and if you can’t be scratched by a cat, then you definitely can’t deal with cat bites. This is because cat mouths have a lot of bacteria in their mouths that is harmful to humans and their bites are often deeper than scratches. If you think I’m making this up, the CDC, NIH, US Public Health and other experts in infectious disease and immune disorders do not recommend that people with health problems get their cats declawed because of these reasons.
    It will also get quite expensive because declawed cats also get a lot of health problems that were created by declawing, such as cystitis and arthritis.
    You should have tried different methods of giving the cat her meds or used a pill shooter or pill pocket. You could have taken her to get her claws clipped professionally or bought one of those scratching posts that file down a cat’s claws. There were options available for you. You just didn’t try them.
