That is if you have changed your mind. I was thinking today how strange it seems to me now to have a cat without claws. Growing up both of our cats were 4 paw declawed. I never thought anything about it, until I got older. Between TCS & volunteering for a cat shelter I realized how important their claws are to them. I now have 4 cat with all their claws & would never declaw a cat again. Some people look at me strange, but they really do use them to play & walk. So for me it was education from TCS & the shelter, and experience at the shelter to understand how clipping the claws makes them less of a wepon (when Jordan was young he would claw at my face if he didn't like what I was doing so I quickly learned that short claws mean no scratches on my face). I've had Levi & Jordan almost 6 years now, so I would say about 7 - 8 years ago I decided I would never declaw a cat again. How about everyone else who doesn't believe in declawing?
