The cats use their claws more than scratching , they use to keep their balance

Yes of course it will hurt the cat and you can never let a declawed cat get of of the house as it will not be able to protect itself. Some cats will become very
aggressive and bite as it the only way they defend itself. If you do not like claws on a cat it is the wrong pet for you.
