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

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!

I love you, but I'll be honest at the same time. You should feel guilty about mutilating these kitties.

You can train them, it just takes some time and effort, but it will be worth it.

Don't rob your kitties of what comes natural to them, which is to scratch. You can get a scratching pole for them and allow them to be what God intended them to be.

Please reconsider my sister.

You will be racked with guilt for the rest of your life if you have those innocent little creatures de-clawed. If you want to save the furniture from cats shave off their fur instead.

I really don't like cats much much more of a dog person, but even with my dislike of cats I still would not declaw them it is like cutting off your fingers at the first nuckle. Declaw sounds pretty benign but it really is mutilation.

If you do cut their wittle little toes off, a soft litter is very helpful in preventing litter box avoidance. This one is really good (I can't be around it any more, its wheat, but its great litter!):

[link to www.catsinternational.org]

[link to www.larkspurcatclinic.com]

Statistics prove that declawed cats have more litterbox problems than clawed cats. Some experts say litterbox avoidance after declawing is directly linked to pain when scratching at the litter

Soft litter, like swheatscoop, can help.

This can also help if you have a cat who is already declawed and peeing on things.

A cats front claws are crucial for its survival if it ever gets outside.

They use them to climb things to get away from larger attackers and also for self defense.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 39547701


I've used soft paws on 3 cats so far. If you start them young, they won't get in the habit of scratching things. After a year or so, they won't need the soft paws because they don't sharpen their claws or use them. Then you can just trim the claws every few weeks. Its much more humane and the cat gets used to being handled and groomed at a young age too. Its a win-win. I just love little kitten snuggles! But their shenanigans drive me up the wall-kittens are psychotic! I'll take a mellow adult cat any day over a kitten.

I'm surprised that de-clawing cats is still legal in the USA. In most first world countries it's been outlawed.

It truly is an amputation of part of the cat's limb, not merely a removal of the claws. The word "de-clawing" is very deceptive.

I'm really glad that you decided against de-clawing them, christian.

Training them to use a scratching post will be easier than you think. I had two cats who were great about always using the scratching post once they were trained.

De-clawing involves cutting to the first knuckle. That is like you trying to work with all your fingers cut down to the first knuckles. A third of your fingers gone.

Just clip their nails.

We have two cats and neither are declawed. We have scratching posts in every room of the house. All of our furniture is intact and without claw marks. It can be done. Just trim their nails regularly and give them the right places to scratch.

Only lazy people declaw their cats.


Also, How would you like it if someone cut of the tips of your fingers at the knuckle? That's what is done by the way.
