Why you should never declaw your cat

November 18, 2011

Declawing a cat is much more dangerous and painful than you think


Declawing isn’t a nail trim. It isn’t the equivalent of permanently removing ‘just’ the claws. It is amputation of the entire first joint of each of a cat’s toes.

Declawing is an expensive and irreversible procedure, worst of all, it is very painful for the cat.

Cats have claws for a reason, and declawing creates both physical and emotional problems for many pets.

There are no benefits of declawing… only risks… to the cat, which is why finding alternatives to the surgery is the humane and loving thing to do.

Declawing is surgery that involves amputating the first joint of a cat's toes.
