A photo of Shyna´s claws and her scratching ball. I never wanted to cut her claws like some cat owner do. I think cat´s simply have claws by nature and I don´t really want to cut (declaw) them as I think it is somewhat silly. I mean if I want to have a cat, then I simply know that this kind of pets have blade sharp claws.
I always thought the only thing I would need to do is to teach my cat that she does not have to destroy furnishings and so and this is possible. I was able to teach my cat some rules as I otherwise would get loud and that is something cat´s don´t like. And I bought my cat some scratching furniture and toys so that she can use her claws there and I do think this is very important that cats have a place where they can do this. So, give the cat some rules and toys, that are the alternatives to declawing in my opinion. Declawing a cat is bad in my opinion.
I never understood how someone could declaw his or her cat and I don´t understand why some cat related websites even suggest to declaw a cat. I think this is really silly anyhow.
