Tobby is a good reason why some people must declaw
We took in a cat that was to be put to sleep. He was a terror to the house. No curtain or piece of furniture was untouched.
We tried the nail covers and many more ideas to not declaw but it came down to return him to die or declaw.
We choose the latter and he is a wonderful pet.
He now plays can be near the kids. He stays inside and shows no interest in going out.
Tobby in my mind is a good reason why some people must declaw.
Also be aware if your delcawed cat must go outside they have outside cat safe large enclosures.
