Declawing a cat is horribly cruel and you could be faced with many problems as a result. Have you looked into getting the nails capped? I don't have any experience with it, but it's a more humane alternative.
That said, our cat is declawed. The jackwagons that we got him from had it done. He's a little b*stard. He bites. A lot.
Our vet won't do it.
Sorry about your LSS, Jane.
Sorry about missing your delivery, Peg.
And good morning!
