suze says: “Cats should never be declawed”. “Thumbs Up”!
And for sure if you raise them from tiny kittens, I cut my cats claws about ever 3 weeks and they don’t mind at all! Start early, And give lots of love and other things that they can claw and play with! Unless there is a serious medical or health Issue? Not sure what that would be? Please don’t declaw your babies!
Declawing cats is mutilation and is illegal in many countries (not, unfortunately, the US). It involves removal of bones, not just claws, and is both cruel and unnecessary. The pain can cause litter box avoidance issues and, later on, the lack of claws can trigger behavioral issues. There are plenty of alternatives, including “soft claws”, nail clipping, and gentle training. There is NO NEED to declaw, ever!
