De-clawed, female cat for Adoption

She's a year old, fixed and up to date on all vaccines. She's black with some white and red. Doesn't like loud noises and takes a little time to come around. Would be fine with other cats, but no children (they scare her too much). I'm helping to find a home for her. Adoption fee: $90.

Do you have a Petfinder site? If not, send me a pic of this girl (or post it here) and tell me her name, and I will list her on MY site.

Not too difficult to get a home for a declawed cat.

Lucky :)

Hey there. I don't have a picture of her at the moment. I should be getting one in the next couple of days. Thank you for the offer.

I do however have a picture of the kitten I found the other morning. Let's just say, he's camera shy. I have a question about something he does though. He's been trying to nurse himself. I'm not talking about licking spots, I'm talking down right sucking on things. You know, that didn't sound right Is this normal? He's got little nipples and he's going crazy on them.

He's nursing on HIMSELF?? You must stop that,even if you have to put an Elizabethan collar on him when you can't watch him, or he could do himself damage. If he does it when you are watching him, distract him with a kitty toy.

Send me pics as soon as you have them. As I'm sure YOU know, pictures are 90% of getting animals adopted.

Mr. Maggoo

This is the kitten I rescued earlier this week. He needs a home and is currently up for adoption. Here's a recap: He's 6 months old. Has been treated for fleas, worms and vaccinations. Will go on the 20th of September to be neutered. Very friendly and loves to cuddle. He's great with kids and likes other cats.

Lucky, would you by chance have a white kitten looking for a home? We had someone contact us, and she would like a white kitten. Let me know

Declawing- for or against

I know a lot of you are against declawing of cats. However i had many cats all of which have been declawed with NO PROBLEM. All the cats that have been declawed do not even know they don't have claws. They are FINE! they enjoy living, are exactly like any other cat that have claws. Let people have their own opinion and just because they want to declaw their cats does not mean they dont want them. I have 3 kittens and love them all dearly. Let people make their own choices.

And the cats? What about their choice? I'm sure if you were able to actually ask them, they would prefer not to have their toes hacked off for the sake of your couch. http://www.pawproject.com/html/faqs.asp

I disagree with declawing as well. I have had cats all of my 39 years and have NEVER had to rip their little fingers apart! I train them to scratch on their posts...there are MANY ways to train kitties to use their scratch posts...yes, sometimes it takes patience, but worth it. Personally I think (and I will ruffle feathers saying this) de-clawing is the lazy person's way.

Where do you draw the line? We recently got our cat declawed (i hated doing this and so did my mother) But its certainly not because we are lazy.. We have been working with Aqua since the day we got her, trying to teach her not to claw, Its worked with our other cats but not with her. We've tried products like fake nails ect. But that doesnt stop her at all! She finds a way. As soon as we would apply a product to her, she would go nuts trying to get it off, and she was always succesful. most cases of declawing are succesful and few are bad even down the line around here anyways.We are fully aware of the risk factors, but there are also risks in getting your cat spayed/neutered BUt we do it , dont we? I am against declawing, but to a certain extent. Declawing is not just for the lazy people, its also for the people that have tried everything possible, besides declawing, and it hasnt worked. It was either get her declawed, OR get "rid" of her. ANd we certainly were not going to do that.

Katherine,for some people,like me,I would not ever consider declawing a cat,no matter what the circumstances,you get a cat,scratches will happen,that's it..
What about dogs,chewing on furniture,scratching the wood-floor,why are dogs not declawed,why not pull their teeth so they cannot chew?
We humans do things to animals for our own convenience,not with the animals welfare in mind,any mutilation should be out-lawed as it is in most civilized countries. Getting off my soap-box

See, the thing is, I value my cat's health and happiness far above any material possessions I have. A couch is just a couch. You sit on it, big deal. My cat's claws are a part of him, and he's my little buddy that follows me around the house all day and trusts that I will look after his every need and protect him from harm. 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.
