(I think you have to be an adult cat or higher to post in IMO.)
Declawing is a deceptive term. It involves more than the removal of the cat's nails. It is a partial amputation of the foot in which the first joint of each toe is removed along with the nails. Many cats have to learn to walk all over again. The procedure is very painful. If you are considering declawing your cat, please don't.
