We have a very cute, very energetic four-month-old named Loki, but he's sometimes a little too enthusiastic when he plays. As a matter of fact, a little while ago, he scratched my mom in the eye (it was nothing serious, only a bruise, she was fine). Unfortunately, my mom now wants to get him declawed. Being the animal lover I am, I'm morally opposed to declawing, and I'm trying to get her to consider SoftClaws (or SoftPaws, whatever you call them, I'm pretty sure they're the same product). However, she thinks that declawing is still the best choice, because she's under the impression that SoftClaws are still hard and pointy and will do just as much damage to a human eye as an actual claw. I've also told her all the usual arguments against declawing, but she doesn't care, she's worried about getting scratched in the eye again. I need advice on how to convince her to try SoftClaws, preferably from people who actually use them on their cats. Thanks in advance.
