Too expensive to go get it done.

On the plus side. When it's time for the Chinese chef to stir fry the cat, cat cannot claw at chef.

Go ahead and declaw your cat, but for solidarity cut off the first knuckle on each of your fingers.

Have you had it done to yours? Is it cheaper at Petco or Petsmart?

I might if I can find a good tutorial video.

We had it done by the vet we got him from. I don't have any idea what it costs though.

Because that's what you're doing to your cat by declawing it. You should know the pain you are inflicting on your pet.

Too often, people think that declawing is a simple surgery that removes a cat's nails—the equivalent of having your fingernails trimmed. Sadly, this is far from the truth.

Declawing traditionally involves the amputation of the last bone of each toe. If performed on a human being, it would be like cutting off each finger at the last knuckle.

It is an unnecessary surgery that provides no medical benefit to the cat. Educated pet parents can easily train their cats to use their claws in a manner that allows everyone in the household to live together happily.

this is correct

the vet i took my kitty to for his shots tried to get me to declaw him
:/

if sharp nails bother you, you can trim kitty claws with pet nail-clippers or human nail clippers - just be careful not to snip where you can see the blood flowing

yeah even trimming can be bad if you aren't careful, but still tons better than declawing.

Some negative effects of declawing

Medical drawbacks to declawing include pain in the paw, infection, tissue necrosis (tissue death), lameness, and back pain. Removing claws changes the way a cat's foot meets the ground and can cause pain similar to wearing an uncomfortable pair of shoes. There can also be a regrowth of improperly removed claws, nerve damage, and bone spurs.

For several days after surgery, shredded newspaper is typically used in the litter box to prevent litter from irritating declawed feet. This unfamiliar litter substitute, accompanied by pain when scratching in the box, may lead cats to stop using the litter box. Some cats may become biters because they no longer have their claws for defense.

Unlikely it feels the same. Besides, I'm not the one scratching up everything.

Nice assumption post. It's my roommate's cat and I'm not buying a scratching post for a cat that isn't mine. Roommate will be gone for months due to being in the army and left me in charge of caring for the cat. He's paying me for caring for the cat but not willing to pay for the declawing. I told him that if he doesn't pay for it, I'll declaw it myself. He hasn't responded back yet after 4 days, so I guess I will. I found a decent tutorial on YouTube.

yeah, you just gotta watch and make sure you're trimming as little as possible
kitties never seem to mind it
i stopped doing it when catto was outdoors but he's inside again

@872,443 (A)
not your cat
a scratching post + some catnip spray is cheaper than declawing a cat
