SCM,I have a good example of a kitty who lives in my vets office,he had all 4 paws declawed(not by my vet)the owners got rid of him because of "behavior"problems,he bites,he's a beautiful muted orange male.
My vet took him in,but will not adopt him out,because he bites.
We should without a doubt, join the rest of the civilized world and not mutilate cats!!
