Why do so many people declaw their cats?
I've came here to ask a question about my cat but reading through I've noticed that a lot of people declaw their cats. Isn't that cruel?
It sounds dreadful, and I'd never heard of it before now. But why do it? What's the point?
Answer by Kate
the practice of declawing a cat is more prevalent in the USA and is in fact illegal here in the UK.
Yes it is cruel the procedure is the same as having your knucles amputated. Some cast end up with pain fterwards. It also effects their ability to climb and also to protect themselves.
It is mainly done by selfish cat owners who want to own a cat but who don't want their furniture scratched etc. that is the only reason. I absolutely hate it and there are lots of campaigns to stop it in the US also.
Thank you for dropping by and participating in my web site. I also live in the UK and it is nice to hear from a fellow resident from this little isle.
