That is an excellent suggestion. There are tons of cats at the THS and I can bet a lot of them have had both operations done.

If you do decide to have a kitten instead, please consider the alternatives to declawing. Here's just a few links:

http://cats.about.com/od/declawing/
http://www.peoriahs.org/declawing.html
http://www.petstation.com/declaw.html

Many more links can be found via Google with "alternatives to declawing" and "declawing alternatives" as the keywords.
