I was talking to my MIL today and she mentioned getting her cat declawed. I said "Please don't do that." She said "Why, is it mean?" I explained to her when a cat is declawed theirs toes are actually being amputated at the first knuckle. She was horrified, had no idea. Now she is not going to have the cat declawed. She was saying that her cat was clawing the wood by her bay window and won't use the scratching stuff. The cat a carpet and rope scratching post so I told her to get a cardboard one. I'm just happy I could make somebody aware of how mean declawing is.
