Mutilating your pet because her natural behavior annoys you might seem incomprehensible but happens every day across the United States. Declawing cats doesn't mean a nail trim; it is the equivalent of amputating most of a human's fingers and toes.

Signed- thank you

Cats are all about claws and teeth- if you hate that, perhaps you should get a bird, or a frog. Can you imagine if your family decided they like you better if they amputated your fingers?????

Recently, Israel has banned the practice of declawing cats. It joins other countries,- Australia, Brazil, United Kingdom, Finland, Estonia, Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland and Austria. It's time for the United States to ban this inhumane practice, as well.

Thank you Nyack!

And so many idiots try to declaw their cats themselves! They should not ever be able to have cats! I have never had a problem with a cat scratching up my furniture. They can be trained.

They actually much prefer a scratching post, and their own furniture!

They have scent glands on the bottom of their feet, and it is a way they mark their territory. Again- that is something cats instinctively DO. Provide a cat with it's own territory spaces and chances are they wont be very interested in yours at all.

Yes, thank you Nyack and Julie. I never had much of a problem either. And so what anyway. I like cats better than furniture

Must add, back in the day when furniture was important to me (many, many moons ago)
i always had house only cats & owned a specific little snipper to trim my cats nails, i only ever took off the tiniest amount from the tip & it always grows back,. Why can't people get one of these instead of resorting to permanent surgeries.
