Message Subject Adopted 3 Kittens....Cuter than Cute, Holy Terrors and I am going to de-claw them..

OP, you are getting some serious harassment on this thread!

It is your choice whether or not to de-claw your cat if you want to do so.

My cat is de-clawed and he had zero problems with it. His paws are fine and he uses the pads of his paws like fingers. He cannot climb the curtains, however he uses his toes to climb just about everything else. He has no trouble at all. He has adapted perfectly.

My best friend's cat has killed mice and birds without claws and gets into trees just fine as well.

They may have to be resourceful, but they are smart and adaptable and there is no reason NOT to have them de-clawed if they are going to be indoor cats. They will wreck your furniture and your carpeting if they like the texture better. I know, because I bought mine scratching posts, pads, mats, a half-circle scratching ramp, and furniture covers.

How do you know he has zero problems, did he tell you so?
Did you ask him before you mutilated him if he wanted the procedure done? You should be ashamed for encouraging anyone to mutilate their cat.

Don't be a douchebag.

My cat is a wonderful fun-loving cat that I rescued from starvation after he was abandoned by his original owners. He could not survive as a feral cat because he had been raised indoors his whole life and was starving to death.

He came up to me in a cemetery and begged me to help him. So, of course, I took him home and took care of him. When I got him, he had fleas, tapeworms, and even though mostly grown, he was only 5 pounds when he was supposed to be 8.

Now he has a loving family and even though he does not have claws, he does great. He has never shown signs of tenderness or favoring of his paws after the first week that it was done and he USES those little paws like fingers, so yeah, I have the experience to say that he was fine and always will be.

Piss off. You jumped into the thread encouraging the OP to do something horrible to her cat. Your cat would have been better off, in every way, had he been allowed, as nature intended, to keep his claws. There is no debating that, so don't try.

You piss off. OP had broached the subject, everyone on here started treating her like a criminal, and I simply said do what you want and shared my experience. Further, my cat would not have been allowed to live at my place with claws, so yeah, the option of starving to death with a belly full of painful parasites is not as good as a week of sore feet and a long life with good toys, fun people, and good cat food.

So why don't you just go and weep in the corner, dipshit.
