Never Have Declawed Any Of My CatsI have never had this procedure done on any of the cats I've owned. To me, it was logical that it would leave them defenseless and I would never want to do that. The way I looked at it is if I didn't want them to claw the furniture, I'd spray a repellant on the furniture to try to deter them from doing that.
Right now I have 5 cats and none of them have been declawed. I don't judge anyone if they've had this done to their cats. I think lots of people are just completely unaware or ignorant of what this actually does to cats.
