Unhappy Declawing

We've tried everything, and the cats (2 of them) wont stop scratching. We're thinking of getting them declawed, but I've heard this is a very painful procedure for them. Is this true? How long does it take for a cat to recover from the procedure?

Unhappy Don't declaw your cats!

don't declaw your cat it IS very painful and takes a looonnnnggg time to recover. It is very bad for your cat. Talk to a veterinarian before to see other possible ways for your cats.

Thumbs down Please Dont Do it!

Please do not declaw your cats!
It is muliation! They saw off your cats knuckles! Can you imagine that? Waking up and realizing that they are gone? Can you imagine walking without them? Some cats do NOT recover mentally from something so traumatising as this and they develop behavioural problems which makes your situation worse.
More importantly, think about how your cats would feel about this. It is in a cat's nature to scratch, if you take that away from them how do you expect them to live a long happy healthy life?

Please visit these sites, I hope you will reconsider. Many people declaw their cats because they are either selfish and can't be bothered to train their cat or they just don't know how the process works in declawing a cat so they need to be educated.

Please be patient with your cats, they will learn if you know how to properly train them. My cat learned when she was six and has never touched another sofa since, she is 11 now. It's NEVER to late to teach them, please try harder...hopefully these sites can help you.
