Your thread was moved to the Care and Grooming forum, so that more members will see your thread and give you feedback about declawing a cat.
Declawing a cat, is not a step to take lightly.
Because claws are a fundamental part of a cat....
many cats, who have been declawed, have negative personality changes.
They also have been known to develop difficult litter box problems.
There are viable options to declawing, that I hope you consider trying, before you even think of taking such a drastic, irrevocable step. I am sure that soon, members will have some great ideas for you to try.
