my cat's claws were clipped at the shelter the day before i adopted him. he goes up to my couch every now and then and scratches for about five seconds and moves on to another activity. he doesn't do it frequently at all. i am buying him softpaws tonight, but i'm curious if cats with clipped nails can still do damage to the furniture? is it more difficult? when a cat really goes on a scratching frenzy how long does it usually last? my cat is very calm and good, but i have to put on the softpaws because i don't want my landlord to give me a hard time and demand declawing, which i don't think she will do b/c she's super nice. i believe he is just marking his territory/leaving his scent when he does his little scratching here and there. he has polydactly (one extra digit) so i have to make sure his nails are clipped down every three to four weeks.
