For me, it comes down to this: which one is going to break my heart more when it's time to "go", the couch or the cat? There's no competition.

And for those that don't think de-clawing is a big deal, it's actually one of the most painful procedures to be performed on a cat. It's what they test the efficacy of new painkillers on. Nice.
