Very nice thing you did OP taking the kittens. And I really hope you’ll look in to the whole declawing issue before you actually do it.

I was all set to get my cats declawed when I happened to read about it and then it is banned in countries like Great Britain because it amputates the first digit of the cats toes. They are left deformed and they’re not gonna walk the same after.

Somebody suggested this to me and I’ll pass it along to you because it worked great. I just got my cats used to me rubbing their feet and I would use just a regular human toenail clipper to blunt the edges of their nails once a month and I never had to worry about anything being destroyed and they didn’t have to lose a digit of their toes.

And what’s interesting is that I never intended to ever let those cats out of the house but when I moved in I had a lot of property, they got out and loved it. And if your cats were living outside, it’s possible that they’ll always look for an opportunity to get back outside again. And if they do and they have claws at least they can defend themselves.

I do hope you’ll rethink your decision to declaw 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...

Declawing is cruel. It's like having the first joint of your finger removed if you were to be declawed.

Additionally, the cat, if ever outside or on it's own will likely starve because it can no longer effectively hunt (no claws to catch things) and can not escape predators because it has no claws to climb tree!

I do not suggest declawing unless you plan on making a lifetime commitment to the animal and never let it outside.

You can have nail caps put on the cats nails (has to be periodically replaced) instead of declawing and also sticky tape (sold in pet stores) will help discourage or break a habit of clawing furniture.
