Both of her cats are declawed and they were both up and running around like their old selves by the next day. I have no choice in the matter. Either declaw, or she lives on the porch where it gets really hot (90 and up in the summer) and well below 40 in the winter.
It doesn't matter how "well" the declaw is done..it's still unneccesary to the cat IMO.
