- Declawing involves amputating the entire part of the 10 front toes including MOST of the first knuckle. A comparison in humans would be cutting off a persons finger at the last joint. -Declawing, whether performed using a scalpel or laser, is a very painful procedure. -Nerves, tendons, and muscles are severed along with joints making recovery from declawing painful and lengthy. -Declawing robs a cat of an integral means of balance, movement and defense.
- Scratching Posts offer an alternative to scratching furniture. -Discourage your cat from clawing furniture by using an adversive scent or spray on furniture which cats generally do not like such as citrus.-Keep your cats nails trimmed if the claws are clipped as needed cats will have less desire to remove the husks of dead claws through scratching.-Nail caps are available commercially to cover the claws.-Declawing is banned in many other countries because it is considered cruel.
