If there is a personal disagreement here, I would prefer the parties take it to email or PM. Thanks!
As for declawing kittens (!), yes I agree no one can be 100% sure that someone won't declaw 2, 3 or even 5 years down the road, but our contract expressly forbids the declawing of any cat or kitten, and signing a legal document is one way to make people think twice about this.
Yes, they may go elsewhere to get a kitten to declaw it, but it won't be on our conscience.
Declawing is a cruelty done for convenience. Our cats have suffered enough through the acts of humans, and we want to ensure their suffering is at an end with us.
