Why Declawing is a Bad Idea (An 1-minute guide)
This is very important
My family adopted a cat whose previous owner declawed her. She had nowhere else to go and couldn’t stay in a shelter room with any other cats since she was continuously bullied without defense. We ended up taking her since we own an extremely docile cat, and she’s now living a happy life. But declawing is never a good idea.
seriously it is literally mutilating your pet it is monstrous i will lose all respect for you if you do this to your cat
God, this is so important. I got my cat when I was younger and my mom declawed him without asking me. Since then he’s had complications with infections in the poorly healed surgical wounds multiple times and he’s frequently in pain. He limps almost all the time and rarely ever jumps down from anything higher than waist hight because of how much the impact of landing on his front paws hurts. For the love of god, do not put your cat through this.
If you value a piece of furniture more than your cat’s quality of life and/or are too ignorant to respect their space so you don’t get scratched, for fucks sake don’t get a cat.
