besides rendering the animal defenseless having their claws removed is barbaric

think about it, ahving all your nails surgically removed against your choice would hurt quite alot .

I used to ahve a friend who had her cat declawed and the cat suffered from infection for quite sometime after its declawing.

I dont know what other negatives there are but those are the reason my cats all have their claws
