Another Thing I Learned

That when you get your cat declawed, they actually cut off the ends of their toes, bone and all.

I'm not opposed to the practice, but I didn't know that's exactly what it is.

Amazing.

And before the folks who are against the practice attack my site, I will assure you that for the moment I am going to attempt some alternatives. I'm starting with those little kittie press-on nails.

1 We had Henk declawed,its really not that bad of a practice.The only thing is,that they start biting then or simply (ab)use their back claws on you (not the furniture).I used to think declawing was cruel,but its not.Infact,its safer for inside cats.Apple (we never declawed her)got so many time stuck with a long nail (you have to clip them all the time),she ripped them out and was bleeding.Since they can't walk them off,they get too long and are a hazzard to the cat.I know a good,cheap vet if you need one..but henk has all his bones and all still,they basically pulled the claws and sealed the root,not cut off toes.Thats all.Not big deal or surgery at all.:-)

2 You are against circumcision though.  Do you see any parallels?

3 No, I do not.

Cats do not have rights at all.

4 Oh noes. Better not let PETA see that statement. I would not declaw any future cat I have, however I don't own valuable furniture yet. Maybe then I would change my mind.
