okay to declaw a cat There are several good reasons for having your cats front claws removed and ruined sofas is one of them Its easy to find a more serious debate as to whether rear claws should be removed but if its done make sure your cat is never left unprotected out doors As far as front claws are concerned many cat owners have learned the hard way that housecats sharpen their claws on upholstered furniture and drapes as they mark their territories Removal of front claws also helps avoid scratches for members of the family particularly children Just remember that a cats real defenses are its teeth and rear claws When a cat is really threatened it grabs its enemy with its teeth und uses its back claws to rake over the enemy Also its interesting to note that a cat can climb almost as well without its front claws as it can with them Contact your veterinarian to get fur ther information on declawing your GOVERNMENT 138 N Castell New Braunfels 210 6253810 cat This article
