Declawing is NOT an Option.

Thinking about declawing your cat? Think again! Declawing is not the removal of a portion of a claw. Instead, it is the surgical amputation of the first joint of the cat’s toes. Whether this procedure is accomplished with a scalpel, a guillotine-type cutter or a laser, it is major surgery, and not to be undertaken lightly.
