The Painful Truth About Declawing Cats

(And What To Do Instead)

5 Reasons to Not Declaw Your Cat

– MercolaHealthyPets

The Painful Truth About Declawing Cats (And What to Do Instead)

– The Purring Journal

Editorial Opinion from Doug Hines, publisher of CatNewsHeadlines

• You’ve Got to Provide an Alternative, Easily Accessible Scratching Area

You are NEVER going to stop your cat from scratching things. Scratching is inherent in their nature.

That’s the way they are. Spraying water bottle mists at them isn’t going to change their inner nature. They won’t understand such absurd negativity on your part. They also won’t understand why you are shouting at them threateningly and waving your arms. Want your cat to stop scratching your furniture?

Provide an alternative scratching area in a major traffic area. A BIG, vertical scratching post is a necessity, AND a 3′ x 3′ sisal floor mat mounted vertically on a wall (especially a wall with a corner) will work even better.

Other Information Regarding Declawing

• The PAW Project

“The Paw Project’s mission is to educate the public about the painful and crippling effects of feline declawing, to promote animal welfare through the abolition of the practice of declaw surgery, and to rehabilitate cats that have been declawed.”

“Many people, including animal lovers, do not realize that declawing is a surgical procedure in which the animal’s toes are amputated at the last joint. A portion of the bone, not just the nail, is removed. Declawing may result in permanent lameness, arthritis, and other long-term complications. The practice, although common in the United States, is actually illegal in many countries. Great Britain’s Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons goes so far as to declare declawing “unnecessary mutilation.” – PawProject.org
