The 2nd infantry Division In Belgium - Doors have been a lot of trouble to /Sgt. Anon G. Cobb of New Braunfels, (143 E. Commerce St). Investigating a pillbox captured by 2nd Infantry Division doughboys, he pushed open a door only to have it swing back on him. Giving it another and harder shove, it still closed on him. Suddenly he detected whispering behind it and decided to dispose of the problem with a white phosphorous grenade. He pulled the pin, dropped it into the half-open doorway among the whispering Germans and started to get out of the pillbox in a hurry. But he
couldn’t find the door to get out of the place and the grenade went off while he was still inside with the Germans. He finally groped his way into the air, half-blinded by the fumes of the explosion, followed by two coughing, sneezing Germans. The Germans are now prisoners of war and Cobb is very careful about doors where he goes.

Is it really okay to declaw a cat? There are several good reasons for having your cat’s front claws removed and ruined sofas is one of them
It’s easy to find a more serious debate as to whether rear claws should be removed, but if it’s done, make sure your cat is never left unprotected outdoors.
As far as front claws are concerned, many cat owners have learned the hard way that housecoats 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 cat’s real defenses are its teeth and rear claws. When a cat is really threatened, it grabs its enemy with its teeth uiid uses its back claws to rake over the enemy.
