Adopted 3 Kittens....Cuter than Cute, Holy Terrors and I am going to de-claw them..
After a year of loosing my precious little baby Zorro to cancer, my husband had a friend who's cat gave birth to 3 Kitty's and he needed to find them a home...

They were living in the Barn with there Mother and really no human contact, only when the owner came in to feed them...

At any rate we decided to take them, only wanted 2 at the most, but they were all bonded to each other....

Names:
Tabby Kitty is "Sammy"
Orange Kitty is *Orange Ruffy*
Tan and White Kitty is "Taffy*

Sammy has really warmed up and does not mind being held very playful, Orange Ruffy has just started coming around but Taffy runs anytime I get close to her, hopefully she will also come around...

The Vet said I could have them spayed and de-clawed at the same time when they are about 5 months, that seems awful young to me, they are still so little....

They will be indoor cats, so just wanted to share my Kitty News...

If you want a Cat without claws, why not get a Snake since they have no legs.

You can train kittens to scratch on a scratch board. Please do not declaw them. It's really a horrible thing to do.

Why do you say that??? I had my kitty Zorro de-clawed when he was about 2 yrs and he licked his paws for about 2 weeks then he was fine....The Vet said they are under anesthesia when they do it and then they give them a pain ointment for the paw and they feel very little distress...I would never want them to go through any trauma with this ...

de-claw cats ? why not cut off their entire legs, make them look like a cocoon with fur. How would you enjoy your fingers without fingernails ? Don't take their claws away.

They are not declawed. The digits are amputated, their paws are deformed and disfigured, and they can never walk without pain or defend themselves ever again.

They would be better off living as barn cats.

Please do not do it.

Don't do this for fucks sake. They need claws from climbing. Maybe clip them and file them so they're not as sharp but don't cut them off.

What is such a big deal about them having claws anyway?

Thank you......but when you research understand that the "medical community" won't give you the truth. It's a money maker for them.

God gave them claws for a reason, the same reason He gave you fingernails.

Of course he will say that. He wants your money. Any vet that would tell you it's "not having nails" is lying and a greedy sadist. If you care about your animals you should find another veterinarian to care for your pets.

Please don't declaw....

Look up the procedure. The claw grows out of the bone, they basically take nail clippers and cut it off, so it is like losing a finger. After seeing it done while working at a vets office, I vowed I would never ever do that to an animal.

Congratulations on your three additions to your family. They should all adapt to their new home soon.

Having them "fixed" when they are young is easier on them.
Please reconsider on having them de-clawed. This is barbaric and torture. If you are not familiar with the procedure, please research this. Also your kitties will have no way to protect themselves should they get outside.

Check into kitten/cat nail covers (like Soft Paws) which are far more humane and they are not very expensive.

Enjoy your babies!

Declawing is a barbaric and useless process. I suggest you don't do it. I own 2 cats and I cut their fingernails weekly with a simple tool you can buy from a pet-shop, trimming their fingernails lasts only 5 minutes of my time. Think about that.

De-clawing is cruel & cripples the cats innate behavior to climb.
