I recently got a new kitty. We were scheduling his needling and working out when he would be the proper age to get fixed. Declawing was suggested to be done at the same time. That way he would only need to be put under once. I looked up pros and cons before i decided. Turns out they don't just remove the claw. They amputate the entire first knuckle!! http://www.declawing.com/htmls/declawing... So Jinx will not have this done, instead I'm getting him soft paws. Little caps that go over his claws. http://www.mylot.com/w/image/1875350.asp... They are pretty cool actually. They look like a recent manicure:P
What do you think about declawing? Would you do it?
Personally I think its inhumane and it should be illegal. It actually is in plenty of countries. Not mine sadly.
