Declawing your cat is inhumane
At first thought it seems like the answer to avoiding all those undesirable cat habits like scratching furniture but think again before you rush out and get your cat declawed. There is a reason why cats have claws and it's to defend themselves which is what nature intended. To declaw your cat leaves him without a way to defend himself and therefore vulnerable particularly if he goes outdoors. Just as desexing has an impact on the cats character and personality so does declawing. It's just plain barbaric and cruel especially when you realise that it involves taking the first joint from each toe so it's gratifying to know that in most countries around the world it is illegal. Apparently not in the US so I hope that will change for the sake of all cats.
