I agree with chico please please I beg you do not declaw your cat.
If you knew what was involved you would shudder. It is not simply the removal of the nail it's removal of the tip of the joint. It's painful and horribly cruel. Many vets will not even do this procedure anymore. GEt some great scratching posts for your cat and many toys or a cat tree.

Also if your cat ever 'needed' to defend itself it couldn't and would suffer. It just seemed to be the 'thing' to do to declaw and now people are of the wiser.

I do hope you reconsider please it's just cruel and inhumane!
Cats only have nine lives because they stole them from dogs!Teehee
