    He’d better not have her declawed. That’s the worst thing to do to a cat.

    Agreed…there a many clinics and vets here that will NOT declaw.

    Why is it bad to declaw? Don’t have a cat, just curious.

    Cats use their claws in self-defense. No claws, no self-protection.

    imagine someone showed up and cut off all your fingers at the joint near the tip of your fingers. that’s what people do to cats to declaw them. I certainly wouldn’t want that done to me, so I wouldn’t do it to my cat.

    Five boys: It essentially amputates the last joint of their toes. Since they walk on their toes, it is like humans walking on leg stumps, as TammiFunnies points out, they also lack their main defense and tend to bite a lot. Clipping the tips of the claws (careful to avoid the different colored part which is where the growth occurs) will get the same benefits without hurting the cat.

    On one episode of My Cat From Hell the cat would not use the litter box. Turns out the cat had been declawed and the guy told the people the litter hurt his feet because the cat had no claws.

    The process of declawing involves removing the last bone on each “toe.” Some vets will declaw front paws only, because without rear claws a cat would not be able to scratch/groom itself – fairly inhumane. A declawed cat is also not able to defend itself, and must be kept indoors – however, anymore most vets and cat aficionados will assert (as I do) that cats should be considered indoor animals only.

    I had an outdoor cat, claws intact. But to the coyote, she was lunch, claws and all.

    Is this place full of crazy people? The strip doesn’t even MENTION declawing, but somebody has to scream about it and the whole comment thread is hijacked.

    Thanks for the information. Cannot imagine anyone doing that to their pet.

    Yes. Yes it is full of crazy people and you are the sole guiding light of sanity to lead us poor bewildered slobs to the promised land of reason and sanity. How lucky we all are.
