I already said I am against declawing but I guess no one took time to read that.
This will be my last post and maybe a reminder that you guys should take the time and give suggestions to people and not make them feel like a child who's been scolded.
I'll figure out how to handle this issue by myself, but I thank the people who were kind enough to give me some suggestions to try.
Look, this was your first post:
|already know that regular declawing methods are not the way to go, but was curious if anyone here had the laser declawing done on their cats?
I have been clipping their nails but honestly, I would prefer not to have to do this. I hate struggling with them and they use their back paws like weapons. lol
My vet actually will not perform any other method than laser so that is thankfully my only option. I really respect them for that as most vets will give you an option.
Reading the bold parts, and considering the fact that you came here to ask for opinions and experiences, clearly shows that you were considering having this procedure done - you only said you were against the regular declaw...Kuddos to you for researching, but at the same time, where is the open mind to accept the facts?
When you put something out there, in a cats lovers board, where in the rules it is stated that we are against declaw... You will hear strong opinions... You will not hear what you want to hear if you are looking for approval. If that is what you want, than... HOWEVER
We here know for a fact that declaw IS amputation, can result in serious psychological and physical damage, that might never ever be fixed for life, and we also know for a FACT that you LOVE your cats, and that is not what you want.
So, please open your mind, put your defenses aside, and hear us out, because that is what you came here for, right? NOBODY is judging YOU - we are all judging DECLAWING - there is a HUGE DIFFERENCE!
We are trying to give you solutions for your problem, and if you run away, you just might miss out on this opportunity...
Have you heard of Soft Claws
?? They are a wonderful solution for declawing!!! SUPER easy to apply, they last like 4-6 weeks in the nails, and completely cover/protect furniture, your arms, everything!
